College Credit Plus is a program whereby Ohio’s high school students may opt to take college courses to for both high school and college credit. College Credit Plus is known in many states as dual enrollment. The Ohio high school task force found that there are many reasons other than advanced coursework that make it desirable for students to access College Credit Plus. Some students do not fit well into the high school environment. Some need to have a more flexible learning environment. Some students without this program would clearly drop out altogether. Research shows that it is highly desirable to expose high school students to college courses early so that they understand that college is much different environment than high school. It is much less restrictive, but it is also less forgiving. College Credit Plus students learn that they must be highly responsible to do well. Contact the Charles F. Brush Guidance Department for further information.
