College Credit Plus

Dear 6-8th Grade Parents/Guardians,

Ohio’s College Credit Plus (CC+) program helps 7-12th grade scholars earn college credits by taking courses from colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready scholars. When taking a college course from a public college or university, College Credit Plus is free. There is no cost for tuition, books or fees if you attend a public school in the state of Ohio. However, if a scholar earns a grade of an “F” in a CC+ course, or fails to complete the course, it may result in all financial obligations of the course defaulting to the scholars and his or her parents/guardians.

In order to enroll in College Credit Plus (CC+) courses, a scholar needs to:

  • Attend a parent/scholar meeting informing all involved of the benefits and statewide changes in the program.
  • Apply to college in accordance with the college’s established procedures for admission.
  • Meet the established standards for admission and course placement of the college/university.

In order to participate in this academic opportunity, parents and scholars are strongly advised to attend the information session. This meeting will take place at Horizon Science Academy Cleveland High School on February 5th in collaboration with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C). A representative from Tri-C, Mr. James Gardner, will talk about the general process of CC+ applications and answer any questions. We hope to see you at this important event.
