1 An Introduction to College Credit Plus for Westerville Students & Families March 3, 2015

2 Overview of College Credit Plus (CCP) CCP is an opportunity for qualified students in grades 7-12 to take college classes before graduation. CCP Covers all dual credit programs including: on campus, at the high school and on-line All public colleges must participate, private colleges can choose to participate.

3 Benefits of CCP Explore post-secondary interests Opportunity to enroll in classes not available at high school Exposure to college faculty/ college expectations College credit may transfer easily (especially between public institutions within Ohio) Earn an industry credential (or be well on your way to earning one)

4 Options in your high school You can participate in CCP without leaving your high school. 5 CCP Courses will be offered in your high school next school year including: Business Technologies Department Science Department Computer Concepts and Applications (CSCI 1101) Fundamentals of Business & Administrative Services (BMGT 1101) Medical Terminology (MULT 1010) Introduction to Healthcare (MLT 1100) Marketing Principles (MKTG 1230)

5 Options on a College Campus Students can choose any course that applies toward a degree or workforce certification at a public (or participating private) college. Enrollment in courses is not guaranteed.

6 College-readiness determined by college. No minimum GPA required.

7 Maximum Credit Hours CCP limits students to 30 credit hours MAX per academic year Formula to determine eligible college hours: Take student s # of high school only Carnegie units and multiply by 3. Subtract that answer from 30. This will give you the number of hours for which student may earn in that academic year.

8 What about Summer Term? CCP applies only during the academic year Enrolling in summer coursework = Self-pay Eligible for college credit only

9 Cost There is no additional cost to you to participate in CCP courses offered at a public college/university. There may be additional fees to participate in CCP courses offered by a private institution. Textbooks are included. student may be required to return at the end of the term Optional fees not covered under CCP including: Transportation, parking, gym membership

10 Credit Successful completion of the course results in earned credit on both your high school AND college transcript. Your CCP course grade will be reflected on both transcripts. CCP courses carry 1.25 weighted credit 3 semester hours or more = 1 high school credit

11 Points to consider Is this a right fit for me based on my strengths and goals? College courses may take more time and you re building college transcript. Courses may transfer differently to other institutions. Check out transferology.com to explore the portability of credits. College courses follow the institution s guidelines (dates in session, withdraw procedures). There is a financial obligation to reimburse the district if you fail or do not complete a course.
