College Credit Plus deadline approaching to declare intent to participate
Students who plan to take part in the fourth year of College Credit Plus need to begin the notification process for the 2018-2019 school year. Public high school students must notify their principals of their intent to participate in College Credit Plus by April 1. This includes students who took part in any of the first three years of College Credit Plus. The application window for nonpublic and home school students closes at 5 p.m. on April 13. Nonpublic and home school students should send their letters of intent to participate to the Ohio Department of Education, 25 S. Front St., Columbus, OH 43215, or email them to CCPintentletter@education.ohio.gov.
College Credit Plus offers Ohio students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. College Credit Plus students can take college classes offered by any Ohio public college or university or any participating private college, at their high schools, on college or university campuses or online. The program allows students to explore college interests sooner and earn college credits toward a degree before graduating. It is free to families when students take courses offered by Ohio public colleges and universities.
To give more students and families the opportunity to save higher education costs, College Credit Plus now includes a summer term. Ohio applies credits that students earn by taking summer term College Credit Plus courses to their high school and college transcripts during the fall. Students and parents should check the summer term registration deadline for the college or university from which the student plans to take courses.
