What is College Credit Plus?
College Credit Plus is an initiative by the State of Ohio which gives qualified high school students the opportunity to take college courses and receive college credit for free. These courses will also count for high school credit. All public colleges and universities in Ohio participate in CCP while private colleges and universities have the choice whether to participate or not. Students have the option to take college classes either on the college or university campus, online through the college or university, or at CJ. CJ currently offers several college courses through partnerships with Wright State University and Sinclair Community College.
In order to participate, students must demonstrate college readiness, be committed to the rigor and pace of college level work, and complete the necessary paperwork by the specified deadlines. Students considering CCP and their parents should attend the informational meeting held on January 27 at CJ. They should also carefully consider the student's ability to commit the necessary time and energy to these classes. Students enrolled in CCP are considered college students and are therefore required to follow the requirements and deadlines of the college or university. CJ's guidance counselors are available to discuss the CCP program with interested students.
