College Credit Plus
About the Program
The College Credit Plus program was established by the state of Ohio and replaces both the PSEO and Dual Enrollment programs.Seventh through Twelfth grade students are eligible to participate in the College Credit Plus (CCP) program. Two options are available at THS for students to earn dual credit (simultaneously earning both college and high school credit). The purpose of the program is to enrich regular high school curricula and to offer the opportunity to experience college level coursework while earning college credits.A mandatory public meeting will be held virtually on February 4, 2021 to provide students with specific details regarding both options. An intent to participate form must be completed by May 1st, 2021 and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or turned in to the counseling office. No late forms will be accepted.All students must carry the required minimum number of credits (per semester) required for their grade level. This can be a combination of the high school credits and the equivalent credits taken at the participating college. The district will only pay for a maximum of 30 total credit hours. Credits earned through this program can be transferred to many colleges/universities. It is recommended that you contact the college admission department directly to clarify what credits will be transferred.There are two options through the College Credit Plus program:
- Option 1 - College classes at any College/University
- Option 2 - College classes at THS through Franklin University and Sinclair Community College
CCP text books are purchased by the district and for this reason we ask that you return them to the Counseling Office at the conclusion of your classes each semester.
Option 1: College Classes at Any University
