College Credit Plus (CCP) Program Information

For public school students, this program is at no cost to the student or family. Non-public and homeschool students must apply for funding each year to offset tuition costs. Home school students are also responsible for all textbook costs. Please visit the State’s CCP website for more information on non-public and homeschool funding.

  • UC Uptown CCP requires official copies of standardized test scores sent directly from the testing agency. We do not accept copies of scores on high school transcripts.
  • Students may request scores to be sent to the University of Cincinnati by visiting Collegeboard (for SAT scores) and/or ACT's website (for ACT scores).
