College Credit Plus

What's changing in Ohio Education

Beginning in the 2015-16 school year, College Credit Plus will be Ohio's dual enrollment system.
 
Eligible students can take a course earn high school and college credit, that appears on both their high school and college transcripts. Teachers who teach a College Plus course in a high school must receive professional development and be an adjunct professor at a college or university.
 
Why?
Ohio needs more students who graduate college and career ready. College Credit Plus increases access for students who have not taken full advantage of the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school.
 
Where?
The student is enrolled in both high school and college and can attend the class in any setting arranged by the college.
 
Who?
Ohio public school districts and Ohio public colleges and universities must participate. Nonpublic high schools and colleges or universities may choose to participate. To be eligible, students must meet the admission standards of the participating college or university to which they apply for enrollment.
 
When?
College Credit Plus starts in the 2015-16 school year.
 
How does a student get started?
All participating public and private high schools, colleges, and universities must promote College Credit Plus opportunities on their websites. Additionally, they will hold an annual informational event for students and parents.
 
Cost:
There is no cost for the student to participate in College Credit Plus while the student is enrolled in a public college or university. Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs.
