College Credit Plus
College Credit Plus (or CCP) is Ohio’s dual enrollment program.
Students in grades 7-12 can earn college and high school credit at the same time. The college credits you earn now can be used to complete a college degree in the future. Students must demonstrate college readiness based on the requirements set by the State of Ohio. Currently, a student must have at least a 3.0 GPA (unweighted)* or college-ready scores on the Accuplacer or ACT/SAT.

The flexibility of online classes was perfect for my busy senior year of high school. I was able to earn 9 credit hours from Chatfield. My experience at Chatfield was the best! I was set to go to a four-year university after high school but decided to continue my college experience with Chatfield for my first year of college. I highly recommend any high school student looking to earn college credit to check out Chatfield!
