College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus (CCP) is an opportunity for Ohio high school students to simultaneously earn both college and high school credit prior to high school graduation.

Benefits of CCP

  • Qualified students may earn college credit at no cost to students or families in courses taught by Miami University faculty.
  • All CCP students are assigned an advisor to assist them with scheduling and topics related to student success.
  • Students may select courses in the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM) or that have been identified as Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG) which guarantees these credits transfer to other public Ohio colleges and universities.

Two options for enrollment for College Credit Plus (CCP)

Option A

For Option A, which is less common, public, community, or non-public high school students choose, upon enrollment, college credit or both high school and college credit. In this case, the cost of the college tuition is funded entirely by the student's family.

Option B

For Option B, which is more common, students receive both high school and college credit. For public high school and community school students, there is no transfer of tuition between student and college. The high school's state foundation will pay the college directly. If the student is enrolled in a non-public high school or is home-schooled, the cost may be subsidized by funds set aside by the Ohio General Assembly in each biennium and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. In order to receive this funding, the student must provide the state with an application for funding form and a copy of a letter of acceptance from the university. Public, community, or non-public high school, or home-schooled, students electing this option may not be required to pay for tuition or books. Non-public and home-schooled students will be notified by the state if their request for funding is approved. Please visit the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s CCP website for more information on non-public and home school funding.
