College Credit Plus (CCP)
CCP is an initiative by the Ohio Department of Education. It allows students to attain college credit while in middle and/or high school tuition free. Students in 7th-12th grade may be eligible to participate.
The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students.
Students must meet the admission standards set by the college in order to attend. Students admitted to the program will be required to perform at the college level.
College Credit Plus is free to students who take college classes at any Ohio public college or university. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or are homeschooled, you may have limited costs.
Students interested in taking College Credit Plus courses must complete an Intent to Participate Form.
The Intent To Participate Form will be emailed once RAS has received the completed CCP Parent Information Session Acknowledgment Form which is found in the RAS CCP Parent Information Session Presentation.
