  • The State of Ohio's College Credit Plus Program can help students earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from colleges and/or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options for college-ready students. Taking a College Credit Plus course from a public college or university is free, which means no cost for tuition, books, or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or university, you may have limited costs. 

    In place of regular high school classes, students can take college courses and earn credits that can be transferred to colleges and universities after graduation.

    To participate in CCP, students must complete the Letter of Intent Form and attend the required annual informational meeting no later than April 1st. 

    Benefits of CCP:

    • CCP courses save students time and money because they can earn transferable college credits for free while in high school.
    • CCP provides academic experience that will enhance students’ college and career readiness.
    • Dedicated students can earn enough credits to graduate high school with an Associate Degree.

    Parents, please note: "The subject matter of a course enrolled under the college credit plus program may include mature subject matter or materials, including those of a graphic, explicit, violent, or sexual nature, that will not be modified based upon college credit plus enrollee participation, regardless of where course instruction occurs."
