College Courses Being Offered at Worthington Schools Through College Credit Plus
College Credit Plus (CC+) allows students in grades 7-12 to take courses and earn both high school and college credit. The grades and credits earned appear on both the student’s high school and college transcripts. Students can earn up to 30 credits per year. (Maximum of 120 credit hours total.)
Where can students take courses?
Eligible students can take courses at the high school taught by a high school teacher, at the high school taught by a college instructor or at the college (online or live). Students may choose to take courses in any combination of formats or with any combination of Ohio colleges. Please be aware that no matter where the course is offered (at the college campus, online or at school), the course will follow the same college course syllabus, use the same textbook, and be assessed using the same methods and grading standards.
What does it cost?
There is no cost for the student to participate in College Credit Plus when the student is enrolled in a public college or university. The high school and college share the cost for these course(s). Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs. If a student fails a course, the student will be expected to pay for the course. If the student does not turn in their textbook, the student will be charged for the missing textbook.
When can I participate?
Students can take classes during the summer, fall or spring semesters or any combination of terms provided that the student does not exceed 30 hours in that academic year (beginning with summer term). It is important to meet all college deadlines in order to participate.
What classes can I take?
