Application Procedures & Deadlines

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. Carefully read all Application Instructions (.pdf) Note priority dates, deadlines, and any special application requirements for the College Credit Plus program.
     
  2. Download and complete the CC+ Application Form (.pdf) The application form must be completed in full and signed by the student, student's parents or guardians, and secondary counselor.
     
  3. 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.
     
  4. Request that your ACT and/or SAT  test scores be sent to Ohio University.  Athens campus CC+ applicants must take either the ACT or the SAT. For best consideration for admission on the Athens campus, it is recommended that students have taken the ACT or SAT by February of the year they intend to apply for the program. The scores should be sent directly from the testing agency. Our ACT code is 3314 and our SAT code is 1593.
     
  5. Submit all application materials to the appropriate Ohio University campus.  Campus addresses can be found on the application form or on the CC+ Contacts page.

    Optional Application Materials You may also wish to submit an essay, letters of recommendation, end-of-course examination scores, and/or a list of your extracurricular interests and activities.

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 - May 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.
