1 Dear Parent/Guardian, I hope you are having a wonderful spring. It s difficult to believe that we are more than 75% through this school year, and before we know it, your student will be a senior at BHS! It is an exciting time, and also a time when students going into the school year should be thinking about dual credit opportunities. Here at Bexley High School, we are constantly improving our dual credit opportunities for middle and high school students so they can earn college credit before they go to college. With the creation of the College Credit Plus program in Ohio law there are many changes that have taken place in the area of dual credit, especially in the areas of funding, partnership agreements, eligibility, and accessibility for students. College Credit Plus is a new law that replaces Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) and Dual Enrollment as a means for middle and high school students to take college coursework (at the college, online, and/or at Bexley High School) for both high school and college credit. In preparation for this new program, we reviewed longstanding PSEO and Dual Enrollment programs and after much thought, discussion, and research have partnered with Columbus State Community College (CSCC) to serve as our College Credit Plus provider. Your student has enrolled in English 12 for the academic year. Our English 12 teachers serve as Adjunct Professors for CSCC and your student, if accepted into CSCC, may have the opportunity to also receive college credit in addition to their high school credit at no cost to you! Please read the attached document. The direction on how to apply for Dual Credit opportunities is outlined in the document. It is important to note that BHS College Credit Plus Letter of Intent Form is due by April 15, 2015 and, if interested your student should immediately apply to CSCC on-line at There is no cost to enroll and enrollment does not bind you to taking the course for college credit. If after reading the attached informational packet and you have remaining questions please contact your student s counselor at Sincerely, Harley Williams, Ed.D. Principal of Secondary Schools Bexley City Schools

2 College Credit Plus Information Guide What is College Credit Plus? College Credit Plus is a program that gives high school students an opportunity to be enrolled in both high school and college course work at the same time. Students must qualify academically and the tuition will be at a reduced rate. College Credit Plus replaces Ohio s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all dual enrollment programs. What are some of the advantages for credit earned through College Credit Plus? For the student who is eligible for College Credit Plus, he/she must be academically ready for college level courses and be willing to follow the procedures outlined by the university while still in high school. If they are academically ready, students will enjoy the following benefits: Earn transcripted college credit and high school credit upon successful completion of the course at no cost to the student Accelerate achievement of educational goals Eliminate duplication of high school and college course content Increase the rigor and challenge of course offerings while in high school Decrease the cost of college with course tuition offered at a reduced rate Who is eligible? Any Bexley student that demonstrates college readiness by submitting qualifying ACT or COMPASS placement scores corresponding to the courses for which they intend to register. What colleges/universities partner with Bexley High School? Bexley City Schools is initiating this opportunity by contracting College Credit Plus opportunities with Columbus State Community College (CSCC). College Credit Plus courses are offered at Bexley High School by Bexley High School faculty. What is the difference between Advanced Placement and College Credit Plus? Both of these options carry college credit at many post-secondary institutions. To earn college credit for an Advanced Placement class, a student must take a national AP exam in May and score a certain level to earn college credit. Typically a score of 3 or higher of the possible 5 points must be earned to receive college credit. College Credit Plus is based on daily performance and assessments conducted in the classroom. A student must earn a grade of a C or higher to accrue college credit. Bexley High School considers Advanced Placement as the golden apple when colleges look at high school transcripts. How will I know if the credit will transfer to my future college/university? There is no guarantee that the class you take will transfer to the college you eventually attend. Some private colleges may prefer AP courses to transcripted course credits earned through College Credit Plus. Ohio colleges and universities who are participating in the program have what is known as a transfer agreement for coursework. These will transfer upon enrollment in a public college or university in Ohio. Your GPA stays with you if college credit is accepted good or bad

3 Do I have to go to a college campus to take advantage of the College Credit Plus Program? College Credit Plus classes may be taken either at Bexley High School, the CSCC campus, or via CSCC s on-line program. It is also possible to have a combination of these.

Credits earned through College Credit Plus are transferable to many public and private institutions in Ohio and out of the state. Students who want to transfer to another university will need to send their transcript from the Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) to the university they plan to attend. Many of these courses apply towards the general education requirement or as electives at that college. Two websites are available to help students fully understand what courses will transfer: or How will College Credit Plus courses impact my GPA? Per HB 487, College Credit Plus courses must receive the equivalent weight as any weighted course within a given content area. Therefore, as per Bexley Board of Education Policy College Credit Plus courses are weighted the same as Honors courses when taken at Bexley High School.

7 How will information about college classes be shared? FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act) College Credit Plus students are college students and subject to the federal FERPA. For regular college students, this means that college records are not released to anyone, even parents, without written permission from the student. For College Credit Plus students, the high school and the college may exchange information. What is the cost for participation for College Credit Plus in Bexley? Students are limited to 30 semester credits per academic year paid for through Bexley City Schools agreements with CSCC). Students wishing to earn more than 30 semester credits per academic year will be responsible for all cost of attendance for each credit above the 30 semester credit limit. Important Notice to Parents and Students Students taking College Credit Plus courses are subject to the rules and regulations of the university they are currently attending, including add/drop dates established by the participating institution. This also includes disciplinary infractions. Your academic calendars may be different. As an example your spring break could fall at one date at Bexley and another at CSCC. You are responsible for attending both. An academic advisor from CSCC is required to meet with each student within the first two weeks of class. This may be done in a group setting. While in college courses, students are introduced to a learning environment that promotes an open exchange of ideas. Course content is presented at an adult level and class discussions require a mature understanding of divergent viewpoints and the ability to think critically on controversial issues. Students should understand that these courses are college-level courses, and the amount of work, pace, and rigor of content in college courses may be much greater than high school courses. In addition, college course grades become a part of a student s permanent college transcript and are calculated into the college grade point average. Poor performance in college courses may affect future university admissions and financial aid. Therefore, it is important to perform well in college courses to realize the benefits of taking college courses while in high school. If you earn more than 30 semester hours it is possible that you may not qualify for freshman scholarship opportunities at some colleges. If a student fails any college course, the cost for tuition, fees, and books will be charged to the student s family. Bexley City Schools will not pay for any courses that are not completed with a C or better.

8 These courses and the grades associated with them will be reported on both the student s high school transcript as well as the college transcript. College transcripts can be requested by visiting the respective college or university website associated with the courses taken. Bexley City Schools does not have access to college transcripts.
