 2.  Who may use the Success Center?

Our Success Center is available on a fee-free basis to:

  • students enrolled in many Pre-curriculum and/or Curriculum ("college credit") courses at FTCC, and...
  • who are seeking assistance in one or more of those courses in which they are experiencing academic difficulty.

One key to academic success is to access the Success Center - and other College support services and resources - as soon as you experience academic difficulty or problems.  This will allow staff to provide timely support, which will improve your chances of success!

In addition, interested NC-Certified school teachers (and other interested adults) pay a modest fee to enroll in one of 40+ Continuing Education/Teacher Renewal courses. Fees for these courses range from $70.00 to $180.00 per course. The fee is based on the number of contact hours of the course in which the student enrolls.  Payment for these courses is accepted at the Neill Currie Continuing Education Building (adjacent to the Continuing Education Center) on FTCC's Main Campus. Questions about these courses may be directed to any Success Center staff member.

(If you are a Continuing Education/College and Career Readiness (CCR) Programs [e.g., Adult High School Diploma, GED, ESL] student, please visit the CCR Resource Center or the Workforce Preparedness Center, both of which are located in the Continuing Education Center. You will be greeted by a CCR staff member available to help you at that location.)
