College Credit Plus

  • College Credit Plus (CCP) is Ohio’s dual enrollment program that provides students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to earn postsecondary and high school credits at the same time by taking courses from Ohio colleges/universities. The purpose of this program is to enhance students’ career readiness and postsecondary success, while providing a wide variety of options to college- and career-ready students, at no or limited costs to students and families.

    Enrollment Options

    Dublin City Schools (DCS) partners with Columbus State Community College (CSCC) to offer courses at the Emerald Campus to help ease the burden for students who participate.  However, participation is not limited to this option.  Students are also able to enroll in:

    • Any public Ohio college/university
    • Private Ohio colleges/universities that participate in Ohio CCP (additional fees often apply)
    • Online courses through colleges/universities participating in Ohio CCP
    • Any combination of the above

    Student Eligibility

     In order to participate, students must:

    • Be in grades 7-12
    • Apply to and be accepted as a CCP student at the applicable college/university
    • Be academically eligible according to the statewide threshold eligibility criteria as well as the college/university requirements
    • Be considered a resident of Ohio, as defined in state law. During the admission process, the college/university will help families verify this information
    • Meet prerequisites and register for courses through the college/university

    Course Eligibility

    Once students are admitted to a college/university for CCP, students may take courses in the college/university course catalogue that are not remedial or religious, that apply toward a degree or professional certificate, and in a subject area in which students are deemed eligible and college- and career-ready. There are constraints to the types of courses that are available to students as defined by the State of Ohio:

    • Students must start with Level I courses for their first 15 credits
      • Exceptions may be made for students to continue with courses in the same subject, test directly into a Level II course, or have earned the required scores on AP or IB course examinations
    • Once students have completed their first 15 credits, they can move onto Level II courses

    Students should review the course catalog of the college/university for a full listing of course offerings eligible for CCP participation.  Parents and students should also speak with their school counselor and their assigned postsecondary counselor for more detailed information.
