1 An Introduction for CHS Students and Families February 16, 2016

2 Contact Information Luke Arnold, College Credit Plus Coordinator Centerville High School

3 Program Overview Ohio s College Credit Plus (CCP) program allows Centerville High School students the opportunity to earn college and high school credits simultaneously by taking college courses from Ohio colleges or universities. For the CCP student, taking a college course from a public college or university is free, which means no cost for tuition, books, or fees. If, however, a student fails the course, he or she will be financially responsible for paying the cost.

4 Program Overview The program is open to all college-ready CHS students. If interested in participating, students should meet with their guidance counselor to discuss their academic plans and career goals. Finally, in order to participate in CCP, all students must notify their guidance counselor by April 1, Keep in mind, however, that each college has its own application deadline.

5 You might consider CCP if, You want to take college courses to satisfy your high school graduation requirements. You completed your high school graduation requirements and you want to begin college work. You want to explore college and take a course in a subject that interests you.

6 A word of caution: However, before you enroll in CCP, consider your individual academic goals and ask yourself the following questions: Academically, am I college-ready? Socially, am I college-ready? The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to collegeready students.

7 What is College Ready? Ready is defined by the individual college. Admission requirements differ from college to college (for example, a two-year community college and a four-year university will have different minimum standards for admission). Each college outlines readiness on its website. In short, students should be capable of completing college-level coursework.

8 Participation If you are in grades 7-12 you can apply for CCP admission to a public or participating private college. Each college determines its own college-readiness standard. Colleges require standardized test scores (ACT, SAT, Accuplacer, Compass) or placement tests. See college s website for specific admission requirements.

9 Benefits CCP might provide more options for you to pursue rigorous academic coursework beyond the high school classroom. Further, earning college credits while you re in high school can reduce your time and costs of attending college after high school. Finally, CCP can offer an individualized academic pathway to explore subjects that interest you.

10 Risks You begin your official college transcript by participating in CCP courses. Therefore, low grades could impact financial aid and college admission upon high school graduation. If you do not pass a CCP course, you will be financially obligated to reimburse the district for the cost of the course.

11 College & High School Credit CCP allows high school students to earn college credit and apply that credit toward high school graduation requirements. College Credit Hours High School Credit 1 semester hour 1/3 credit 2 semester hours 2/3 credit 3 semester hours (or more) 1 full credit Example: WSU s ENG 1100, a 3 semester hour course, equals one full high school English credit.

12 Graduation Requirements High school graduation requirements are not waived as a result of participation in CCP. CCP does not replace the requirements to earn a high school diploma. You will not receive your high school diploma until all required graduation requirements are met. Periodically discuss graduation requirements with your guidance counselor.

13 Graduation Requirements Students participating in CCP must still earn 18 points or more on the graduation tests (end-of-course exams). Before you begin CCP coursework, discuss these requirements with your guidance counselor so you know which exams you ll have to take.

14 Graduation Requirements Even if you are enrolled in college courses, you must take the end-of-course exams in English I, English II, Algebra I and Geometry. You do not have to take the end-of-course exams in Physical Science, American Government, and American History if you are enrolled in College Credit Plus courses that substitute. A CCP student s end-of-course grades in Physical Science, American Government, and American History will correspond with a point scale used for graduation requirements.

15 Where to Take Classes You may take courses online or on campus at any public college or university in Ohio. Some private colleges or universities may participate, too. Currently, CHS students are taking CCP courses at the following colleges: Miami University Middletown Sinclair Community College Wright State University

16 Where to Take Classes CHS has established strong partnerships with Miami University Middletown, Sinclair Community College, and Wright State University. MUM Megan Spanel, SCC Teresa Hernandez, WSU Cathy Davis,

17 Where to Take Classes CHS and WSU have partnered to offer a CCP English course at CHS next year. (Specific details will follow later in this presentation.) Again, students can take courses offered in person or online at any public or participating private college in Ohio, not just those partnering with CHS.

18 CCP and Grades CCP course grades will appear on your high school transcript and on your college transcript. CCP course grades will be computed in your CHS grade point average, and they will be used to calculate your class rank. If you fail a CCP course, the F will appear on your transcript. Most CCP courses will receive a weighted or honors grade.

19 CCP and Grades

20 CCP and Grades CHS offers honors-level courses in English, Math, Science, Social Studies, World Languages, and Fine Arts. Therefore, any CCP course taken in one of these categories will receive an honors grade. On the other hand, any CCP course taken that is not in one of these categories will not receive an honors grade (for example, health, PE, business, etc.).

21 CCP and Athletic Eligibility If you are a student athlete, you must remain eligible in accordance with the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) bylaws. This means you must be passing five, one-credit courses or the equivalent per grading period. OHSAA provides a method for calculating the eligibility of CCP participants. All student athletes should discuss eligibility with their guidance counselor and with the athletic director.

22 Responsibilities As a CCP student, you must follow the rules and regulations set by the college/university. Communicate with your professors/instructors and follow the course syllabus as well as the college/university academic calendar. Once enrolled, you are eligible to receive advising from campusbased support services of that institution.

23 What is College Ready? Culturally, college is different than high school. Students who participate in CCP should be ready to interact with college students and college professors on a college campus. In the classroom, you will be treated like any other college student, not like a high school student. Professors will have the same expectations for you as they do the regular undergraduates in their class.

24 What is College Ready? The course content and discussions in a college classroom are often times more mature than a high school classroom. As a CCP student, you will be in classes with students older than you. Many undergraduate students will be between 18 and 22 years old. Further, succeeding as a college student requires a high level of self-management.

25 Readiness: Self-Management In college, students must keep track of massive amounts of information and organize themselves to meet competing deadlines and priorities. They must plan their time carefully to complete these tasks. They must be able to study independently and in informal and formal study groups. They must know when to seek help from academic support services and when to cut their losses and drop a course. These tasks require selfmanagement, a skill that individuals must develop over time, with considerable practice and trial-and-error. from David T. Conley s What Makes a Student College Ready? Ready%C2%A2.aspx

26 Available Courses Once admitted as a CCP student, you may take any course in the college s course catalog that is not remedial (developmental) or religious. Certain courses require prerequisites. Some popular courses: English Composition Introductory Psychology Introductory Sociology

27 CCP at CHS In addition to completing courses on college campuses, CHS students may enroll in the following dual-enrollment College Credit Plus course offered at CHS during the school year: ENG 1100: Academic Writing and Reading #C12000, This semester-long College Credit Plus English course offered in partnership with Wright State University introduces students to principles of effective written communication and critical reading and stresses invention, drafting, revising, editing, and self-assessment, along with effective critiquing and collaborating.

28 CCP at CHS ENG 1100: Academic Writing and Reading #C12000, Upon completion of the course, students receive 3 semester hours of college credit and 1 full credit of high school English. As with all CCP courses, this class is offered at no cost to the student. If, however, a student fails the course, he or she will be financially responsible for paying the cost. Students must apply and be considered college ready by Wright State University in order to take the course.

29 CCP at CHS ENG 1100: Academic Writing and Reading #C12000, Again, in order to take the course, students must apply to Wright State as a CCP student. In addition, they must have the following qualifying scores on the ACT or SAT: ACT ENGLISH = 23 or above SAT CRITICAL READING AND WRITING = 530 or above Students who have not taken the ACT or SAT must take a placement test at Wright State and earn a qualifying score.

30 CHS Scheduling Priority placement will go to seniors requesting ENG 1100: Academic Writing and Reading #C In March, you should submit course requests for a complete high school schedule. Once enrolled in CCP, you will meet with your guidance counselor to adjust your CHS schedule, if necessary. After registering for CCP courses, you will provide your guidance counselor with a copy of your college schedule.

31 CHS Scheduling When participating in CCP, your schedule might look something like this: CHS in the morning; CCP in the afternoon CCP in the morning; CHS in the afternoon CCP all day; no classes at CHS CHS all day, including CCP English course Meet with your guidance counselor as soon as you register for CCP classes.

32 Costs Because CCP is a state-funded program, taking a college course from a public college or university is free for the student. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or university, however, you may have limited costs. Responsibility for transportation rests with the student.

33 Credit Hours As a CCP student, you may take up to 30 semester hours in an academic year. You may earn up to 120 semester hours through CCP. Follow the calculation formula to determine just how many college credit hours you may take.

34 College Credit Hour Eligibility Formula: High school credits x 3 Subtract that number from 30 Equals the number of college credit hours a student is eligible to take during the year Example: 3 high school credits x 3 = = 21 Student is eligible to take 21 college credit hours for the year

35 Failing a Course Classes failed or withdrawn with an F will receive an F on the high school and college transcripts and will be computed into the high school and college GPA. If you do not receive a passing grade, the district will seek reimbursement for the amount of state funds paid to the college on your behalf for that college course. The district will withhold grades and credits received for high school courses taken until reimbursement has been made.

36 College Credit Transfer Thanks to Ohio s Transfer to Degree Guarantee, many entry-level courses earned at an Ohio public college are guaranteed to transfer to any other Ohio public college. Credits earned at private colleges, or those that you want to transfer to an out-of-state institution, will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the institution you are seeking to attend. Go to HTTPS://TRANSFERCREDIT.OHIO.GOV to learn more about credit transfer among the state s public institutions of higher education.

37 CCP Advising In addition to your guidance counselor, I will be available to advise you on all aspects of the CCP program, including the application and registration process. Also, I will work with you and your guidance counselor to make sure that you are meeting all graduation requirements. Further, the college/university that you attend will provide similar services to you as a CCP student.

38 How to Start. Talk with your guidance counselor. Discuss your interest in taking college courses and how it fits in with your overall academic plan and career goals. By April 1 st, notify your guidance counselor if you intend to participate in CCP next year You must submit an intent to participate form by April 1 st. If you miss this deadline, you will not be able to participate in CCP next year.

39 How to Start Intent to participate forms will be available in each unit guidance office or in my office (South 273) later this week. Remember, these form are due by April 1 st.

40 How to Start. You and your family should contact colleges for information, application forms, and criteria for acceptance into College Credit Plus. You must go through the procedures established by the colleges/universities to apply to College Credit Plus and to enroll in the course(s). Again, each college/university establishes its own guidelines for defining college-readiness.

41 How to Start Prior to college class attendance, your guidance counselor will assist you in determining a course s equivalency to a high school course(s). Register for classes and provide a copy of your schedule to your guidance counselor for review.

42 Summer 2016 CCP will include summer term courses beginning in Summer term will apply as the 1st term of the next school year. A college s summer term may begin in May. There may be multiple sessions within a summer term. If you want to participate in summer term, you must submit your letter of intent to participate early enough to apply and gain admission to the college and register for course(s) in the spring.
