CCP - College Credit Plus Program
The College Credit Plus Program was established to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students in grades 7-12. Students will earn both high school and transcripted college credit. Each college has different requirements, and different application processes that must be completed in order to participate. UC Blue Ash College (UCBA) is participating in the “Courses Offered on College Campus” CCP option. Classes are available only through UCBA, on campus or online during weekdays, evenings or Saturdays.
CCP Enrollment Process
The CCP enrollment process includes taking the Math and English Qualifying/Placement Tests (during scheduled, proctored times on our campus.) Students must test into college-level math and English; remedial classes are not permitted. ACT/SAT scores will be accepted if they are officially sent to UCBA. Other components include submission of an online application, official transcript/ grades, and printed forms (Basic Data and Application Signature & Authorization).
CCP Benefits and Risks
There are many benefits and risks associated with participating in College Credit Plus. Students and parents should read and understand the pros and cons of participating in the CCP program, so an informed decision may be made.
