College Credit Plus Program (CCP)
The College Credit Plus Program (CCP) at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified 7th-12th grade students with the opportunity to enhance their high school education with a true college experience.
The CCP program is not intended to replace coursework available in high school, or to provide high school students with a full-time college course load.
Science Experience Internship
The Science Experience Internship allows qualified high school students the opportunity to participate in research under the guidance of a professor in the following areas:

- Computer Science
Students who are interested in participating in the Science Experience should submit an application for the College Credit Plus Program (CCP) to the Alternative Credit and Articulation Agreements office by the deadline listed on the application. Students should also submit a Science Experience Request Form. Once a student is admitted, the Alternative Credit and Articulation Agreements staff will coordinate with University faculty to determine the most appropriate placement for students based on their research interests. Students will be placed with a faculty member and will meet with the professor to determine a research schedule. The student should plan to spend 3 hours per week for 15 weeks per semester as part of the program. Students who successfully complete the Science Experience course will earn one credit hour of Kent State University credit.
