Ohio Dual Credit Information

Ohio’s College Credit Plus is the sole structure for the use of state taxpayer dollars for dual enrollment. Students in grades 7 through 12 can apply to participate in the program by demonstrating college-readiness via a standardized assessment exam. Upon showing readiness, the student must also meet college admission requirements of the college of their choice. All public colleges and secondary schools must participate, while private colleges and secondary schools can choose to participate. However, if a private school student chooses to participate, then the private secondary school automatically must participate. Homeschooled students can also choose to participate. Students may enroll in college courses at the college campus, online, or at the high school location with an approved, credentialed high school teacher or a college-employed faculty member.
