College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus at Kent State Stark

The College Credit Plus program was recently established by the State of Ohio to replace PSEO and Dual Enrollment Options. The program is designed to allow college-ready students, grades 7-12 who qualify for college admission, the opportunity to earn high school and college credit. College Credit Plus can include courses offered on a college campus, online or at the high school for which credit is awarded from the college. Knowing that college readiness is a requirement, Kent State Stark requires all students interested in College Credit Plus to submit ACT or SAT scores. These scores are used to determine college readiness for our new students.
