College Credit Plus Steps
Earn college credit in high school through College Credit Plus.
College Credit Plus (CCP) is a program sponsored by the state of Ohio that allows eligible students in grades seven through twelve to earn high school and college credit during the Summer, Fall and Spring semesters that will appear on both their high school and college transcripts.
Students in the College Credit Plus program enjoy a wide range of benefits, including:
- Earning college credit for free, saving thousands of dollars toward your college education
- Tuition and books* are provided at no cost, saving even more money
- Some CCP courses are weighted the same as AP and IB courses, earning students both college credit and a weighted grade toward GPA
- Earn college credit while completing a high school diploma, getting students closer to completing a bachelor degree upon high school graduation
- A wide variety of courses with credits that are guaranteed to transfer to any Ohio public college or university, plus agreements with many private institutions as well.
- Access to Tri-C’s student services such as counseling, tutoring, the Career Center, RTA U-PASS, student success specialists and the Transfer Center
