College Credit Plus (CCP)

College Credit Plus
Ohio’s College Credit Plus program gives college-ready students in grades 7-12 the chance to earn high school and college credit simultaneously by taking courses at a participating Ohio college or university. Ohio has set aside a specific amount to fund College Credit Plus participation for non-public students. This funding can be used to pay the tuition for those classes. You will be responsible for the cost of textbooks if courses are taken at the Ohio college or university campus or online. All public colleges and certain private colleges in Ohio are participating.
College Credit Plus is an opportunity for college-ready and interested students to pursue more challenging classes and explore college interests sooner. Your child can earn anywhere from a few college credits to more than a year’s worth while still in high school. College Credit Plus can reduce your child’s time in college and greatly reduce your family’s higher education costs.
