Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC)

noneWilliam Peace University is dedicated to putting students in the best position to learn and develop - even if it means sending you somewhere else for a class or two.

Through the Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC), WPU students can take classes at participating institutions, without any additional costs. So if the class you want isn't in our robust academic catalog, you can take it at a participating school as you continue your WPU education. Only Day and SPS students are eligible for CRC benefits.

Additionally, library resources from all six schools are available to all students through a direct library loan program. Either you can request a book be sent to WPU for your research, or, if it's last minute, as a student you have access and the ability to visit one of the CRC libraries!

According to a study released by the CRC in 2014, the six campuses contributed an estimated $8 billion to the Wake County economy, accounting for 205,413 jobs for faculty, staff, students and alumni. The totals represented 24 percent of all wage and salary income in the local economy and 43 percent of all Wake County jobs in 2013. To view the full report, click here.
