College Credit Plus Program

Program Information

College Credit Plus is Ohio's dual enrollment program that provides students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking courses from Ohio colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to enhance students’ career readiness and postsecondary success, while providing a wide variety of options to college-ready students, at no or limited costs to students and families (Ohio Department of Higher Education).
As a school district, we strongly recommended students and families to visit the Ohio Department of Education College Credit Plus website to review all of the available information regarding the benefits and drawbacks of the CCP program.

Students and families should also carefully read the College Credit Plus Information & Planning Guide to learn about the program, including expectations, requirements, benefits / limitations and additional responsibilities students accept when participating in the College Credit Plus program. Students and families should carefully read the guide and refer to it as needed for general information and questions regarding the program and process for participating.
