About the Program

    Sinclair Update: Due to Covid-19 the State of Ohio has made policy changes for the CCP Program.  Students may become eligible for CCP if they have a current GPA of 3.0 or higher.  We are reviewing this for all new applicants based on information received by your school districts.  Students will be notified of their status and if needed, Remote Testing Instructions will be given for those still needing to test. Letters and emails will be going out to students effected by this policy change soon.  Please continue to check the Student Information section at www.sinclairprepared.com. If you have more questions after reading the FAQ's contact the CCP office by emailing your CCP Coordinator or our general inbox at ccplus@sinclair.edu. Thank you for your patience as we navigate how to best serve our students during this time. 
     
     
    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 was held on January 30, 2020 to provide students with specific details regarding both options.  If you were unable to attend this meeting, please see the presentation below. An intent to participate form must be completed by May 1st, 2020 and emailed to vhlavac@tippcity.k12.oh.us
     
    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 Urbana/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.
