Recommended Oxford Campus College Credit Plus (CCP) Courses

Miami students enjoy life on campus

The Ohio Department of Higher Education requires that College Credit Plus students must complete 15 credit hours of courses that are on an approved list.  These courses are transferable courses among any Ohio public higher education institution. After completing the 15 credit hours, CCP students should confer with their academic advisor if they wish to take a course that is not on the list.

CCP students are not eligible to enroll in one-on-one private instruction courses, courses with fees that exceed the amount set by the Chancellor, study abroad or study away courses, physical education courses, remedial courses, or courses that are not taken for a grade.

The courses listed below are available on Miami University's Oxford Campus.

Please note that course offerings vary by semester. This list does not reflect available courses in any given semester or term.

It is the student’s responsibility, with the guidance of their school, to know which courses count towards high school graduation requirements.

All grades received by students in this program are reviewed by college admission offices and thus, participation in the program needs to be carefully considered.

Please note, any student enrolled in the CCP program must be admitted to Miami University before they can be offered selective admission or a degree. Admission to Miami University requires a diploma with a high school graduation date or GED. For information on applying to Miami University, please visit
