What is College Credit Plus (CCP)?

Ohio’s College Credit Plus program is designed to allow college-ready students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to earn college and high school credits at the same time. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. With College Credit Plus, classes at public colleges or universities are free. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees. Classes may be offered at the college campus, online or in the high school. Students seeking admission into the program should be responsible, independent, open-minded and mature with the ability to manage high-level, rigorous material at a fast pace.

Knowing that college readiness is a requirement, Kent State Tuscarawas requires all students interested in College Credit Plus to submit ACT, SAT or Accuplacer scores. These scores are used to determine college readiness.
