COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS (CC+)
Last school year, more than 32,000 students got a jump start on college and reducing their costs toward college degrees by participating in the College Credit Plus program, which is available free of cost to you wherever you live in Ohio.
Ohio’s College Credit Plus program offers students in grades 7-12 the chance to earn college credit from any Ohio public college or participating private college while earning high school credit for each college course if the student qualifies academically. All associated costs are free to qualified students seeking credit from public colleges.
