College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus is an initiative by the Ohio Department of Education to allow middle and high school students, grades 7 – 12, to attain college credit up to 30 semester hours per school year, tuition free at Ohio public institutions. The college courses will be documented on the students’ high school and college transcripts. It will be the students’ responsibility to ensure the college courses taken transfer to the college or university of their choosing. Students will also be responsible for obtaining their college transcript of completed coursework to the institution they are transferring the credits. It is vital that both students and parents/guardians educate themselves on the pros and cons of the program and understand the steps that must be taken to qualify for participation.
