College Credit Plus

CCP Application

True College Experience

The College Credit Plus Program (CCP) at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified 7th- through 12th-grade students the opportunity to enhance their high school education with a true college experience.

Students accepted to the CCP program typically select courses from the Kent State University’s Kent Core Requirements. They may take as few as one course in a semester or a maximum of 30 semester credit hours per academic year.

The subject matter of a course enrolled in under the college credit plus program may include mature subject matter or materials, including those of a graphic, explicit, violent, or sexual nature, that will not be modified based upon college credit plus enrollee participation regardless of where course instruction occurs.


Kent State Ashtabula will partner with area school districts to offer College Credit Plus information sessions throughout the academic year. Students and parents should plan to attend the session established especially for their school district as district personnel will be present. Check the schedule for dates and times, or listen to your school announcements for details. In addition, an open information session will be held at Kent State Ashtabula. Sessions at the high schools usually are anywhere from November- March of the academic year.

*Out of an abundance of caution and because of the high COVID numbers in our county, Kent State Ashtabula will not be doing any in-person Information Sessions at our campus this academic year. Please see the Information Nights link below to view a pre-recorded presentation typically given at the CCP Information Nights, and any supplemental documents.
