Ohio House Bill 487, commonly referred to as College Credit Plus or CC+, provides academically qualified students in grades 7 through 12 access to college-level coursework that is not remedial or religious in nature prior to graduation from high school. This program promotes rigorous academic pursuits and provides a wide variety of options to college-ready students. Successful completion of college courses under this program not only earns secondary students transferable college-level credit but also credit that satisfies high school graduation requirements.
Applicants to the CC+ program may choose to enroll in courses under either of the following options:
The student may elect at the time of enrollment to be responsible for payment of all tuition and the cost of all textbooks, materials, and fees associated with the course. Ohio University shall notify the student about payment of tuition and fees in their My OHIO Student Center.
At the time of enrollment, students electing option A shall inform their school counselor of either their intent:
- To receive only college credit or
- To receive both high school and college credit for the course
Under this option, the cost of tuition, textbooks, materials, and fees are paid for the student. Upon completion of the course, Ohio University shall award the participant credit for the course, and the student’s secondary school shall award the student high school credit.
