CCP Course Eligibility

What Courses Can I Take Under CCP?

Under House Bill 49, there are new rules specifying the courses that students are eligible to take under College Credit Plus (CCP). The Ohio Department of Higher Education has a guidance document summarizing this new rule.

Students are expected to complete fifteen hours of Level I courses before moving on to any Level II course for CCP. A Level II course is any course that is not specifically designated as Level I.

In general, these are the types of courses or credits students may be able to utilize towards fulfilling this "First 15" requirement:

  • Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) courses.
  • Ohio Transfer Module (OTM) courses.
  • Career-Technical Assurance Guide (CTAG) courses.
  • Other courses in Computer Science, Information Technology, Anatomy & Physiology, and Foreign Language.
  • Courses designed to teach study skills and other skills for academic and career success.
  • Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) test credits. Official AP/IB test scores must be sent to the University for consideration.

Students must still meet any University requirements or prerequisites to enroll in courses for CCP.

Students may also test directly into Level II courses where appropriate. Students must consult their academic advisor for details.
