The College Credit Plus (CCP) Program enables public high school students in Ohio to enroll in classes at colleges or universities in the state. If classes are successfully completed, students can earn credits for their high school and college transcripts.
The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous educational pursuits and to provide a wider variety of options to high school students.
Toledo Public Schools offers three ways to participate. The first is for the student to attend classes on a college or university campus. The second is for the student to enroll in college-level classes on the high school campus. Finally, there is an online option.
High schools will give students credit for the classes, as long as they meet graduation requirements. Students must receive a passing grade to get credit. If a college course is taken for both college and high school graduation credit, there is no charge to the student for the costs of tuition, textbooks, materials or fees -- as long as the student earns a passing grade. (However, the textbooks remain the property of the school district once the course is completed.)

For those students wanting to participate in the fall, they must return the Intent to Participate Form by April 1. (Home-schooled students must return their form directly to the Ohio Department of Education).
