WHAT IS COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS?
College Credit Plus (CCP) is a dual-credit program in the state of Ohio within which:
Students may earn high school and college credits at the same time.
Students enroll and participate in college-level coursework
WHY DO YOU DO CCP?
WHERE DO I TAKE CCP CLASSES?
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
THS covers the tuition and textbooks, and fees may apply if students participate in private college or university courses.
Students who receive an F or withdraw from a college credit plus course after the deadline published by the college, are required to pay the system and book fee.
HOW MANY CREDITS WORTH CCP CLASSES CAN I TAKE?
Students can earn up to 30 credits annually, including high school-only credits or middle school courses. The 30-credit annual maximum includes the summer semester, considered the beginning of the academic year. Students can earn a maximum of 120 college credits throughout the entire program. (OAC 3333-1-65.2)
To determine the maximum number of credit hours a student can register each academic year, you must calculate credits by subtracting this formula's high school-only course credits. Each high school course in a core subject area is worth three credits.
30 - (# of High/Middle School-Only Courses X 3) = Max # Number of CCP Credits Per Year
For example, if "John Smith" is taking Math, Science, and English in high school (3 courses = nine credits), his formula would look like this:
30 - (3 X 3) = Max # of CCP Credits Per Year
30 - 9 = 21 CCP Credits Per Year
Therefore, John would take up to 21 credits worth of CCP courses for the 2020-2021 school year.
Advanced Placement (AP): college-level courses and exams that give high school students the opportunity to receive credit and/or advanced placement in college. Students enrolling in AP courses should expect to develop analytical reasoning skills and study the subject matter in great depth. Approval for enrolling will be based on student ability, past performance, counselor and/or teacher recommendation, and prerequisite courses. Students are required to take the AP exam in the spring to fulfill the expectations of the course. Based on the score of the exam, college credit may be earned.
