What is College Credit Plus?

College Credit Plus (CCP) gives students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to take college courses for free and earn high school and college credit before graduating high school. The subject matter of a course enrolled in under the college credit plus program may include mature subject matter or materials, including those of a graphic, explicit, violent, or sexual nature, that will not be modified based upon college credit plus enrollee participation regardless of where course instruction occurs.

Benefits for Students & their Families

  • College Credit Plus provides the opportunity for students to pursue college-level coursework while still in high school.
  • Under College Credit Plus, high school students can complete just a few classes, their entire freshman year of college, or more. Some even graduate high school with an Associate Degree which gives them a tremendous advantage in their college career.
  • Earning college credits while still in high school can significantly reduce the time and cost of attending college after high school.
