Application Procedures & Deadlines

To successfully complete the CC+ application process on any of Ohio University's campuses, you will need to follow these steps. Please note that if you do not have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you may download the free version to view the PDF documents referenced below.

  1. Apply online to the Athens Campus or a regional campus, or download and complete the 2021-2022 College Credit Plus Application [PDF]. Note priority dates, deadlines, and any special application requirements for the College Credit Plus program. Once you have completed the online application, you will be prompted to download the signature page [PDF], which must be signed by the student, student's parents or guardians, and secondary counselor. Page 6 is the signature page in the PDF application.
  2. Have official transcripts sent directly from all previously attended secondary schools and postsecondary institutions, when available. When secondary transcripts cannot be provided (e.g., an applicant is in grade 7), official grade reports should be submitted by the school, along with any additional documentation that demonstrates academic preparation for college-level coursework.
  3. Request that your ACT and/or SAT test scores be sent to the appropriate OHIO campus. In some cases, standardized exams or placement scores will not be required to complete a CC+ application for the 2021-22 academic year. All applicants to OHIO’s CC+ program with a 3.0 or higher cumulative, grade-point average (GPA) will be considered for admission regardless of submission of an exam score. A cumulative 3.0 GPA does not guarantee CC+ admission. Students must demonstrate college-level preparation for admission and meet necessary prerequisites for specific course enrollment. Applicants with a cumulative GPA below 3.0 may still be considered for admission if qualifying exam scores can be provided.

Application Deadlines

All application materials, including grade reports or high school transcript and standardized test scores, if applicable, must be submitted electronically or postmarked by the following dates:

Summer Semester (session II only) - April 1
Fall Semester - April 1
Spring Semester - November 1

As a reminder, applicants to any semester must notify their secondary school by April 1 of the school year prior to the year they wish to enroll. Applications are only rarely accepted after the posted application deadlines under extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the offices of Dual Enrollment Programs and / or Regional Higher Education. Students interested in CC+ should check with their school counselor to determine whether the school has deadlines or requirements that would supersede Ohio University’s requirements.

CC+ applications for new, first-time enrollment in summer semester will be considered for second summer session only. Continuing CC+ students may enroll during either or both summer sessions.

Home School Applicants

Ohio University welcomes applications for admission to the College Credit Plus (CC+) program from students who have a home education background. The home school review process is designed to recognize the unique experience of a home education while ensuring preparation for academic success at OHIO. The CC+ home school admission policy is modeled on the same set of requirements that are applied to traditionally educated applicants.
