College Credit Plus: Approval of Additional Level I Courses

Approval of Additional Level I Courses

Ohio Administrative Code 3333-1-65.12(H) permits the Chancellor of the Ohio Department of Higher Education to approve additional Level I courses for College Credit Plus. Chancellor approval is based on whether adding the course as a Level I course option would provide benefit for a College Credit Plus student.

Any proposed additional Level I course submitted by an institution and approved by the Chancellor will become part of the College Credit Plus program. The course will be effective beginning with the summer term following approval. Please also note that each newly approved Level I course must be communicated to students by April 1 annually, unless otherwise approved by the Chancellor.

The Ohio Department of Higher Education has reviewed the submitted course information and is posting the preliminarily approved courses on this webpage for public comment for a period of two weeks (10 business days). The posting will give interested stakeholders the opportunity to support or oppose the proposed courses. It also provides other colleges with an opportunity to identify courses aligned to the proposed courses.

After the public comment period, all courses and the corresponding comments will be provided to the Chancellor for final review. The Chancellor will publicly post a list of all approved courses on the College Credit Plus website.

 

Equivalent Course Approval

If a proposed course is approved by the Chancellor, equivalent courses at other institutions will also be permitted as Level I. To determine equivalency of courses under this provision, colleges and universities must review the submitted course documentation (linked below), including the course syllabi, to ensure that the same learning outcomes are covered. Each institution is responsible for determining course equivalencies based on the course documentation. The Ohio Department of Higher Education may audit Level I course offerings at any participating college or university at any time as stated in Ohio Administrative Code 3333-1-65.12(G)
