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 from high school. Students can take up to 30 credit hours per school year, and a total of 120 throughout the program.

College credits can be earned during summer, fall, and spring terms. Courses taken in the summer term count toward the upcoming high school year. Each class and corresponding grade are included in both high school and college transcripts. Flexible class scheduling allows students the ability to enjoy school activities that fit around college classes.

Benefits for students and their families

  • Earn high school and college credit for classes taken
  • Reduce the time and cost of earning college credit
  • CCP course grades are weighted the same as AP/IB and other advanced standing classes on high school transcript
