College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus (CCP) is an opportunity for students to earn both high school and college credits at the same time. Students who are eligible to participate in CCP can pursue, and in some cases, complete a certificate or an associate degree while in high school. Students have the opportunity to participate through their high school or online/remotely for the Fall 2020 semester. Please review our Fall Academic Engagement Plan

Important ccp updates for Fall 2020

Central Ohio Technical College (COTC) is following Governor Mike DeWine’s recommendations to take immediate action to minimize the risk of exposure and slow the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in our communities.

Policy changes have been made by the State of Ohio due to COVID-19.

New students for the 20-21 school year are eligible to participate in CCP if they have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

Colleges/universities cannot test new students for fall enrollment for eligibility and admission consideration due to COVID-19 restrications and limited services avaliable on campus. Placement testing is currently not being offered at COTC campus locations.
