College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus

What is College Credit Plus?
College Credit Plus is Ohio's dual enrollment program that allows students in grades 7-12 who qualify to take college classes that count for both high school and college credit.  Students must meet the admission standards set by the college in order to attend. Students admitted to the program will be required to perform at the college level.  This program is free to students who take college classes at any Ohio public college or university (private colleges/universities may charge a fee).  
 
NEWLY UPDATED 4/3/2020:  Ohio Higher Education has put out 2 documents with new guidance on CCP at https://www.ohiohighered.org/collegecreditplus (scroll down to the red COVID-19 box).  The documents extends the Letter of Intent Deadline to May 1, 2020.  Also, because students cannot take the Accuplacer at universities that are shut down, it makes some changes to the admission process.  From what I can tell, each university seems to setting some of their own admission standards AND some of them are still determining what those requirements will be.  Your options will be to either contact the university directly and ask their requirements OR go ahead and apply, then wait for them to email you the requirements.  Please read the above linked documents for further information!
 
UPDATE 3/25/2020:  The Ohio Legislature is currently addressing many edcuational questions related to the COVID-19 closures. Check back here, the Ohio Higher Education website, AND the CCP department at each university/college you hope to attend for updates or changes!! I will do my best to update this site as soon as I become aware of any changes:
     * Update 3/25/2020: Ohio University has extended their CCP application & testing deadlines - Summer = May 1  and   Fall = June 1  
UPDATE 3/16/2020:  I have uploaded all forms/handouts from the Parent Meeting to this website (see below).  You can still email Letters of Intent, Accuplacer scores, and signed College Application Consent Forms.  I will be forwarding them on to Universities as needed.  Please continue to check your email if you have already submitted college applications (email is the main way colleges will communicate with you).  I will be checking my school email daily (M-F) if you have any questions or you need help!

What should I do next?
 
ResearchEvery university and college in Ohio is required to have a website with their CCP information.  Just do a simple search with the school's name and "CCP" to find each school's site.
 Admission Requirements
NEW:  Due to the COVID-19 Shut Down, Ohio has changed the admission testing process.  Check the new law/guidelines here:  https://www.ohiohighered.org/ccp/students-families.  As of 4/3/2020, some universities are still clarifying what their specific admission requirements will be.  Unfortunately, counselors are not always being updated on these requirements in a timely manner.  So, it is recommended you either:
    1- Contact the university CCP department directly to ask about requirements.
    2- Go ahead and apply, then wait for an email about requirements from the university.
