College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus (CCP), Ohio’s dual enrollment program, provides an opportunity for students in grades 7-12 to enroll in college courses, challenging themselves and earning transferrable college credit at little or no cost! NCSC is proud to serve school districts and career centers across Ohio, helping students successfully complete CCP coursework — whether that is at your high school, the NCSC campus or online. Many high school seniors choose to continue with NCSC after high school, benefitting from our scholarships, small class sizes, flexible course options, and pathways to over 60 associate degrees, two bachelor’s degrees, and multiple certificate programs.
As a CCP student you can qualify for a variety of courses. We encourage you to consider a pathway when possible. Identifying your path will help with selecting courses that align with your goals! 

Taking college courses while in high school or middle school creates an opportunity to explore future college majors, work towards academic and career goals, and reduce the costs of college.
