College Credit Plus (CCP) is an opportunity for high school students to simultaneously earn college credit and high school credit. By participating in Ohio’s CCP program, Miami University Regionals provide qualified students an exceptional opportunity to advance their college education prior to high school graduation.

Benefits of CCP

  • Eligible high school students may earn college credit at no cost to students or families in courses taught by Miami University faculty.
  • All CCP students are assigned an advisor to assist them with scheduling and topics related to student success.
  • All CCP students have access to the same student support services provided to fully matriculated Miami University students.
  • CCP students can take their courses with other Miami University students and benefit from the array of experiences Miami University students bring to our classrooms.
  • Students may select courses in the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM), which guarantees these credits transfer to other public Ohio colleges and universities.
  • Students can select from a list of recommended CCP courses.
  • Sample Academic Pathways at Miami University have been identified for CCP students seeking to take courses that meet degree requirements in associate or bachelor degree programs. Please review the Recommended Course Options for further information. 

CCP offers students two options

Option A

Public, community or nonpublic high school students choose, upon enrollment, college credit or both high school and college credit. In this case, the cost of the program is funded entirely by the student's family.

Option B

Students receive both high school and college credit. For public high school and community school students, there is no transfer of tuition between student and college. The high school's state foundation will pay the college directly. If the student is enrolled in a nonpublic high school, or is home-schooled, the cost may be subsidized by funds set aside by the Ohio General Assembly in each biennium and awarded on a first come, first-served basis. In order to receive this funding, the student must provide the state with the Application for Funding form and a copy of the letter of acceptance from the university. Public, community or nonpublic high school, or home-schooled students electing this option may not be required to pay for tuition or books. Nonpublic and home-schooled students will be notified by the state if their request for funding is approved.
