College Credit Plus
What is College Credit Plus?
College Credit Plus (CCP) is Ohio’s dual enrollment program that provides students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking courses from Ohio colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to enhance students' career readiness and post-secondary success, while providing a wide variety of options for college-ready students, at no or limited cost to students and families. Taking a college course from a public college or university through College Credit Plus is free for the family as Sycamore covers the cost of tuition and books.
Students are required to notify Sycamore High School if they plan to participate in College Credit Plus. The process begins with the student completing a mandatory Intent to Participate form (found below), then they apply to their chosen college (s). As they apply, they will learn what the college needs from the high school to support their application, and once admitted, the student must pay close attention to all communication from the college about next steps (e.g. orientation, advising appointment, how to order books, how to register for classes).
To be eligible to take any CCP class, students must follow these steps:
- Complete the Intent to participate (Electronic and Hard Copy) form. Once per year, by April 1st.
- Apply to a college using their CCP application. You are allowed to apply to more than one.
- Complete the Request for Documents form (Electronic and Hard Copy) so Sycamore can provide supporting documents to the college.
- Watch your email for the decision from the college. If admitted, college's directions regarding course registration, buying books etc.
- Consult the CCP Handbook for more information about the program and Sycamore specifics.
