Earn college credit while you are still in high school through College Credit Plus.
College Credit Plus (CCP) is a program that allows students to earn college and high school credits simultaneously. It has replaced the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option (PSEO) program in Ohio. CCP is administered by the State of Ohio, and updates will be made as information becomes available. Interested students should complete an application for CCP at John Carroll University by April 1 for summer enrollment or fall enrollment or November 1 for spring enrollment. Students enrolled in JCU’s CCP program will take college courses on the JCU campus in University Heights.
Availability of courses may be limited so please understand that admission into the CCP Program does not guarantee matriculation into a specific course. The state has placed restrictions on the courses that can be taken during the first 15 credit hours of CCP participation: a student is permitted to take many of our 100 and 200 level courses in approved subject areas that do not require any pre-requisites during their first 15 hours of participation in CCP. To view these Level One courses, please click here.
We will begin to review spring CCP applications in mid-November and registration for spring courses will take place in mid-December. We will begin to review fall CCP applications in May and registration will take place in mid-July. Summer CCP applications will be reviewed beginning in late April. Acceptance letters along with “Next Step” information will be sent out shortly after the applications are reviewed.
Earning college credit before you graduate from high school is a benefit, possibly allowing you to earn your undergraduate degree in less time or giving you the option to double major, study abroad, or explore different subjects throughout your college experience.
Specific benefits for John Carroll CCP participants:
This is a new program, so you may have many questions – please consult the Ohio Department of Education website for a list of Frequently Asked Questions.
Please note, your 30-hour credit limit begins in the summer prior to the start of the academic year. For example, if you register for six hours in the summer and 14 hours in the fall, you will only have 10 hours remaining for the spring semester. (See FAQ item #15)
Students may take any JCU course we offer provided they have the prerequisites and meet our suggested minimum curriculum requirements. Class seats must also be available at time of registration for CCP students; no forces will be done. See the Ohio Board of Education website for subject limitations for funding. Our course schedules can be found on our website along with course descriptions.
Current or previous John Carroll CCP students wishing to return for an additional year of coursework must speak with their advisor to complete any necessary paperwork. This should be completed by April 1.
We will begin to review spring CCP applications in mid-November and registration for spring courses will take place in mid-December. We will begin to review fall CCP applications in June and registration will take place in mid-July. Summer CCP applications will be reviewed beginning in late April.
Visiting (Transient) Students
College students attending another institution having a grade-point average of C (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better and eligible to return to their own colleges or university may be admitted as visiting students. Visiting students must download, print, complete, and submit a Visiting Student Admission Application. A transcript of previously taken college course work may be requested at the time of registration to verify good academic standing at the home institution.
You must submit a copy of your current college ID card and you will be able to register once our priority registration has ended.
Non-Degree Seeking Students
Undergraduate Non-degree seeking students, that is, those students who have not earned a Bachelor’s degree, and do not wish to take courses to toward a degree must submit this Non-Degree form. Your student account statement will be created upon registration and will be emailed to you with payment instructions and deadlines. Non-degree seeking student registration begins after JCU priority registration has ended.
