WHY College Credit Plus? Only 5% of Ohio high school students are currently participating in dual credit programming. College Credit Plus establishes clear pathways for high school students to earn college credit. Increasing the number of college and career ready students in Ohio Ultimately having a positive impact on Ohio’s workforce Offering incredible financial savings to earn college credit at no cost to the students College Credit Plus
All public high schools must participate in College Credit Plus. High schools must develop pathways, in partnership with Ohio’s colleges, of 15 and 30 credit hours leading toward a degree or certificate. All nonpublic high schools may participate. No eligible student may be denied participation. What is College Credit Plus? College Credit Plus is open to students in grades 7 through 12 who are deemed college ready. College Credit Plus
Cost There is no cost to students participating in College Credit Plus. Tuition and book charges will be handled at the state level between the high school and the college. What does that mean to you? At a COTC tuition cost is $179 per credit hour, if a student takes a three credit hour class it would typically cost $537 – but through College Credit Plus there is no cost to the student. SO…. 12 to 15 credit hours would be a savings of $2,148 30 credit hours would be a savings of $4,300 and would equal about the first year of an associate degree. College Credit Plus
Three different ways to participate: OPTION A: Students can take courses at the high school with high school teachers who are credentialed at the college level.
