College Credit Plus at North Central State

Through North Central State, college-ready students in grades 7-12 can take courses at no cost under Ohio’s College Credit Plus (CCP) initiative. Funding is even available for private school and home school students. Taking college classes while in middle school or high school allows students the opportunity to help them work towards their academic goals early. CCP courses give students not only the chance to reduce the time and cost of college but can work towards their high school graduation requirements, as well. Between our specialized programs and multiple pathways, students can even potentially graduate with their associate degree at the time they finish high school.

North Central State College currently works with over 50 schools and career centers around Ohio to help their students successfully complete CCP coursework within their buildings, online, and on the NCSC campus. Completing CCP courses at NCSC opens the door for unique opportunities offered exclusively for our CCP students after high school. Take advantage of our unique scholarships, small class sizes, flexible course options, and pathways for over 60 associate degrees, two bachelor’s degrees, and multiple certificate programs.
