What should CCP students expect when taking college courses?

  • Courses are faster paced. It’s important for students not only to review their classwork, but also to prepare for future lessons by completing assigned readings and staying on top of homework.
  • More study time is required. Students should expect to spend 2-3 hours per week, per credit hour enrolled, outside of the classroom to prepare for class, read textbooks/materials, review notes and group work, write assignments, and study for tests or exams, etc.
  • Proactivity is required. Students, not parents or counselors, are responsible for communicating with their professors via office hours and/or by email if they have any questions or concerns regarding their progress in class.

Will Miami send final grades from courses taken to the high schools at the end of each semester?

Yes. By state law, Miami is required to send final grades for each student taught by a University faculty member to their high school at the end of each semester.      

Can students take summer or winter term classes through the College Credit Plus program?

Yes. CCP courses are available in the fall and spring semesters as well as the summer and winter terms. The summer and winter sessions are shorter in terms of number of weeks and are offered at a more accelerated pace. Students should carefully consider whether the additional demands of accelerated delivery college courses are well suited to their aptitudes and needs. The first summer session begins in the middle of May and may conflict with high school students' coursework and exams being taken at the end of the year.

If a student completes a class, and receives a failing grade, who pays for the class?

Students who receive a failing grade in a class may be billed for the published cost of that class by their high school district (if a public school student) or the State of Ohio (if a non-public school student).

Are College Credit Plus program students eligible for financial aid?

No. Students participating in the program are not eligible for additional financial support.                  

Who is responsible for intervention if a student fails a college course being taken for college credit?

Students participating in the College Credit Plus program, together with their parents, must be aware of, and understand, the social and academic consequences of participation. The home school district or University may (but are not required to) provide any necessary intervention with the student.  CCP students who need additional academic support are encouraged to consult their academic advisor and to use academic support centers, such as the Rinella Learning Center or the Howe Center for Writing Excellence on the Oxford campus and the Tutoring & Learning Center on the Regional campuses.

What happens when a student transfers into a new high school district after the March 30 deadline?

The district superintendent has the authority to allow students, on an individual basis, to participate in the program after March 30.                        



Can a student who is enrolled in College Credit Plus program on a full-time basis participate in high school athletics?

Yes. As long as the student meets state and local scholastic requirements, the student may participate in high school athletics.                                           

Who owns the textbooks provided for the students?

The high school the student attends owns the textbooks.

Are CCP students eligible for International Workshops/Study Abroad Programs or courses offered at MUDEC (Luxembourg)?

CCP students are not permitted to participate in these international or study abroad programs as they are beyond the scope of this program.

Are CCP Students eligible for on-campus housing?

Students enrolled in CCP or other similar dual-enrollment programs are not eligible for University on-campus housing.

How will CCP credits transfer to another institution?

  • Students should complete a preliminary transfer check on Transferology. Students will have to manually add the course instead of using the drop-down function for accurate results.
  • Check the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM) and Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG), which provide information on general education courses that students can take for transfer across Ohio Public Institutions.
  • Encourage the student to speak with a representative from the institution they plan to attend to ask how the course in question will transfer.

Will CCP credits count toward a degree?

  • CCP credits generally apply in one of three ways: 1) toward a major requirement, 2) toward a general education (e.g., Global Miami Plan) requirement, or toward the total number of semester hours (free elective credit).
  • The best way to check how a course will transfer is by contacting the divisional advising office that houses the student’s degree of interest.

How do I transfer my credits to another institution?

  • If you plan to attend any Miami campus upon high school graduation, we will already have record of any Miami CCP courses that you took on the Oxford or Regional campuses.
  • If you plan to attend a college or university other than Miami after high school graduation, you must order an official transcript for each institution to which you plan to apply. Go to the One Stop website for information on ordering transcripts.  

If a student is a Miami CCP student, does the student still have to apply as an undergraduate student to attend Miami after graduating high school?

Yes. All CCP students must apply to Miami Undergraduate Admissions as a first-time student. Participating in Miami's CCP program does not guarantee admission into any degree program at Miami University.
