College Credit Plus Pathways

College Credit Plus Pathways are a set of courses that either total 15 or 30 hours and that can be organized by a major or career path to include various courses required for a degree or professional certification. The Pathways may include courses offered via a mix of modalities (online, on campus, in the secondary school, etc.). CC+ participants are not required to follow any specific Pathway or take the courses listed. They are only provided as an example to assist is the planning of course schedules and future academic pursuits.

Please always consult your secondary counselor prior to registering for college courses to ensure that the appropriate high school requirements will be met. PDF versions of each Ohio University CC+ Pathway are available below. Additional Pathways will be posted as they are finalized.

Standalone Certificates for a High-Tech Career

OHIO offers two standalone certificates at the Lancaster campus in automation and mechatronics, providing a quick path to an in-demand career. Ohio’s growth in high-tech manufacturing brings with it the promise of high-paying jobs. The arrival of Intel’s $20 billion semiconductor manufacturing complex in Ohio has also started the expansion of Ohio’s high-tech future.

Both certificates are stackable, and credits can apply toward the Engineering Technology associate degree or an online bachelor's in project management.

How to take these courses: Students who are enrolled in OHIO's CC+ program may take courses that lead to a standalone certificate. However, since standalone certificates require a high school diploma or GED for admission, CC+ students will not be eligible to enroll in a certificate program code until completion of high school (or equivalent). CC+ students should submit a CC+ Certificate Pathway Opt-in Form to Undergraduate Admissions. Completed forms can be emailed to or mailed to 120 Chubb Hall, Athens, OH 45701.
