College Credit Plus process has begun

High school students register by April 1

Students intending to participate in the fourth year of College Credit Plus, the successful program that provides Ohio students with the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school, can begin the notification process for the 2018-2019 school year.

College Credit Plus provides students with the opportunity to take college classes offered by any Ohio public college or university, or from any participating private postsecondary institution, at their high school, on the college or university campus, or online.

It is free to families when students take courses offered by Ohio public colleges and universities.

Public high school students may notify their principal of their interest to participate, and must declare their intent to participate by April 1. This includes students who participated in any or all of the first three years of College Credit Plus.

In an effort to give more students and families the opportunity to save on the cost of college, College Credit Plus now includes a summer term. Credits earned by taking courses through College Credit Plus during a summer term will be applied to students’ transcripts during the fall.

College Credit Plus debuted at the start of the 2015-2016 school year and has since had more than 65,000 students participating and saving more than $262 million in college tuition costs.
