New College Credit Plus students are required to attend an orientation session prior to registering for classes. Admitted applicants will be contacted by University College with orientation dates. During orientation, each student will receive information regarding:

  • Academic resources available to assist students
  • Availability of the college advisor to assist students after the meeting
  • Process for engaging faculty and other campus resources for academic assistance
  • Student handbook and codes of conduct
  • Academic impact of dropping a course after the no-fault withdrawal date

Orientation Dates

In alignment with social distancing practices, College Credit Plus (CC+) Orientation will be conducted online. Athens Campus CC+ Orientation consists of two components: an online, self-paced orientation module and an individual advising appointment with a CC+ academic advisor.

Students will receive orientation information via email. The virtual orientation will provide students with an overview of policy and procedures for OHIO’s CC+ program.

Students who have questions about CC+ Orientation for Athens Campus students can email the Allen Student Advising Center.

Academic Advising

The Allen Student Advising Center provides advising services for all College Credit Plus students attending the Athens campus. Their office is located in Alden Library, Room 230. Advising staff can be reached via telephone at 740-566-8888 or email at advisingcenter@ohio.edu. For more information, please visit the Allen Student Advising Center website.

During orientation, students will work with an advisor to select courses and be registered for their initial classes. Each student will be assigned a specific academic advisor after orientation and that advisor will work with the student to help the student achieve his or her academic goals and select appropriate courses.
