Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC)

WPU offers a rare opportunity that few institutions in the country can match – the ability to share resources with other colleges in the area.

Through the Cooperating Raleigh Colleges (CRC), WPU students can take courses at participating institutions without any additional costs. 

If there is a particular class that is offered by a neighboring school, you can take it there simultaneously with your WPU classes. Additionally, library resources from all six participating schools are available to all students through a direct library loan program.

Making An Impact

The totals represented 22% of all wage and salary income in the local economy and 40% of all Wake County jobs. Additionally, local public revenues and its municipalities derived from the total income generated by the CRC institutions are estimated to be $180 million 2017.
