CCP - College Credit Plus Program
The College Credit Plus Program* (CCP) has been established to enhance students’ college and career readiness and postsecondary success by enabling college-ready, 7-12 grade students, who qualify for college admission to take college level courses for which they earn both high school and transcripted college credit upon successful completion of coursework. The University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College (UCBA) is participating in the “Courses Offered on-Campus” CCP option which is very similar to the former PSEOP offered from 1988 to June of 2015.
*Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365 College Credit Plus Program starting: 2015-2016 school year
CCP Enrollment Process
The College Credit Plus enrollment process includes taking the Math and English Placement/Qualifying Tests. These tests are given on the UC Blue Ash campus during scheduled, proctored times. Students must test into college level math and English as remedial classes are not allowed. Other components include an online application, official transcript/grades, and printed forms to be completed and returned–Basic Data and Application Signature and Authorization Page.
