I am planning to participate in the College Credit Plus Program in the Fall. Can I still apply?

Yes! We are offering our CCP program for high school students beginning Fall 2020 and have extended our deadline.

SSU has made the following changes regarding CCP:

SSU will conditionally admit CCP students with incomplete applications, including students without all of the required signatures, tests scores, or high school transcripts.

New Deadlines

Following are our new deadlines for completed applications:

  • August 1 for students wanting to enroll in fall courses

365体育投注网Students must have all parts of their application complete. These deadlines are in line with legislation that will hopefully be coming soon from the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

Placement Testing Updates

Accuplacer/Placement Testing

During this time, we are conducting Accuplacer exams online. Learn about taking the Accuplacer online.

ACT Testing

College Credit Plus

What is College Credit Plus (CCP)?

Ohio’s College Credit Plus program (formerly post-secondary) can help you earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students in grades 7-12. With College Credit Plus, classes at public colleges or universities are free. That means no cost for tuition, books, or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or university, you may have limited costs.
