College Credit Plus (CCP)

(Previously known as PSEO and Dual Enrollment)

Beginning with the 2015 – 2016 school year, the College Credit Plus (CCP) program replaces Ohio's Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all dual enrollment programs previously available.

In order to enroll in CC+ courses, a student must:

  1. apply to the college in accordance with the college's established procedures for admission; and
  2. meet the established standards for admission and for course placement of the college/university. 

To participate in this academic opportunity, parents and students must attend a mandatory information meeting regarding enrolling in CCP.  For the 2020-21 school year the meeting will be January 21 at 6:00pm in Puffenberger Hall. By April 1st, the student and their parent(s) must inform the high school of their intent to participate in the program during the coming school year.  This deadline is state mandated. 

On-site at Northwest High School, we are proud to partner with Stark State College to offer eligible students transcripted credit opportunities.

It is important that you discuss possible post-secondary courses with your school counselor to ensure that you will still earn the credits that you need for high school graduation.

***In addition, the student must complete the College Credit Plus Course Selection Form/Intent/Release Form located in the Counseling Office.***
