CCP - College Credit Plus Program

The goal of the College Credit Plus program at UC Blue Ash College is to give 7-12 grade students options in their education.

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.

NOTE: College Credit Plus information for Ohio participation is also included on the website.


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).
