Ohio’s College Credit Plus can help you earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. Taking a college course from a public college or university is free. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or university, you may have limited costs.

Your high school may have an agreement with a local college for specific courses; however, you can choose to take College Credit Plus courses from any college that offers a course that would benefit your future. This could include online courses.
New This Year:

  • All public school, private school and homeschool students must declare their intent to participate, even if they participated last year. Letters of intent for each group can be uploaded in the “Forms” section below.
  • To enhance data security, all applicants are required to establish a SAFE Account (https://safe.oh.us/portal).
  • A summer session has been added this year. These sessions can start as early as May, so don’t delay in establishing your SAFE account and completing your letter of intent.

Important Dates
Process to Participate Runs From February 15 Through April 1

  • Talk with your school counselor. Discuss your interest in taking college courses and how it fits in with your overall academic plan and career goals.
  • We have already held our CCP program.  You should make every attempt to attend a seminar at the college you plan to take CCP courses through. Prior to March 1, your district will provide information about the College Credit Plus program to all students in grades 7-12. An informational session will be held and all colleges and universities within a 30-mile radius will be invited to attend before March 30. If you cannot attend, schedule an appointment with your school counselor.
  • By April 1, notify your school counselor if you intend to participate in College Credit Plus next year. After April 1, you will need permission from the school district superintendent to participate.
  • You and your family should contact colleges for information, application forms, and criteria for acceptance into College Credit Plus. Some materials are available from your high school counselor and at the college’s website. You must go through the procedures established by the colleges/universities to apply to College Credit Plus and to enroll in the course(s). You may have to take a college placement test to make sure you are college-ready. A map showing all Ohio public colleges can be found here. A map showing Ohio private colleges can be found here.
  • Prior to college class attendance, your high school counselor will assist you in determining a course’s equivalency to a high school course(s).
