Students and Parents
On this page, you'll find resources to help students and parents navigate the College Credit Plus admissions process. Prior to applying to the College, we ask families to consider a student's level of social and emotional maturity that is needed to take college-level coursework. There is the potential for mature subject matter in College Credit Plus courses. In addition, parent/guardian communication with the College is limited by the Family Educational Rights Protection Act. If you have questions, you can contact the CCP Coordinator at your campus.

Private and Homeschool Student Information
Students attending a private high school and homeschool students must apply to the Ohio Department of Education to receive funding to underwrite their costs and send a copy of the funding letter to the college. Once complete, the college provides discounted tuition and book fees to home-school students. View the Home-School Student Information sheet below.
