About College Credit Plus

Ohio’s new College Credit Plus program allows college-ready students to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from Ohio colleges and/or universities at no cost to families.

This program promotes rigorous academic pursuits and provides a wide variety of options to college-ready students in grades 7-12, including students who may have an interest in exploring a particular career pathway.

Public school students who are interested in taking advantage of this program must complete a “Letter of Intent to Participate in College Credit Plus” and submit it by April 1 to the school counselor, in order to participate the following school year.

Who Should Participate?
  • College-ready students in grades 7–12 who wish to begin earning college credits now.
  • Students who have taken all the courses offered in a particular subject at the High School.
  • Students who have taken all the courses they need to graduate and are ready to begin college work.
  • Students who want to experience college-level work in preparation for college.
  • Students who may be interested in pursuing a particular career pathway.
Next Steps:
  • Prior to enrolling in a CCP course, your high school counselor will assist the student in determining a course’s equivalency to a high school course.
  • Students should meet with their school counselor to discuss how CCP fits in with the student’s overall academic plan and career goals. Discuss questions about the rules and deadlines for the program, and for assistance with having transcripts sent to colleges as part of your CCP application with your school counselor. .
  • By April 1, a completed “Letter of Intent to Participate in College Credit Plus” must be turned in to Mr.McCain, in order to participate the following school year. Turning in the letter simply lets the school know you are interested in participating, it does not require participation, or guarantee admission to the program.
