Student Eligibility Resources

Click here for more information.

Ohio Revised Code 3365.03 was revised based on House Bill 49 legislation. Please note the following:

The student shall :

(i) Apply to a public or a participating private college, or an eligible out-of-state college participating in the program, in accordance with the college's established procedures for admission, pursuant to section 3365.05 of the Revised Code;

(ii) As a condition of eligibility, be remediation-free, in accordance with one of the assessments established under division (F) of section 3345.061 of the Revised Code. However, a student who scores within one standard error of measurement below the remediation-free threshold for one of those assessments shall be considered to have met this requirement if the student also either:

(I) Has a cumulative high school grade point average of at least 3.0. If the student is seeking to participate under section 3365.033 of the Revised Code, the student must have an equivalent cumulative grade point average in the applicable grade levels.

(II) Receives a recommendation from a school counselor, principal, or career-technical program advisor.

(iii) Meet the college's and relevant academic program's established standards for admission, enrollment, and course placement, including course-specific capacity limitations, pursuant to section 3365.05 of the Revised Code.

 

With this revised statute, the Eligibility Process for College Credit Plus has changed and is described in these documents:

  •          Student Eligibility Flowchartpdf – Illustrates the step-by-step process for determining a student’s eligibility for College Credit Plus, admission into a college/university, and enrollment in college courses.
  •          Student Eligibility Tablepdf – Provides the allowable assessment exams, remediation-free threshold scores for eligibility, and conditional scores (standard error of measurement range) for eligibility.

The Student Eligibility changes are in effect for the 2018-2019 academic year, beginning with summer term for new students in the program. Students who participated in the College Credit Plus program in the 2017-2018 academic year, or prior, will not need to be retested under the student eligibility standards that are in place for the 2018-2019 academic year.

Student SSID/UIN Numbers

CCP data files do require either the CCP student’s SSID (for public school student) or UIN (for nonpublic or home school student) for submission. Higher Education institutions may submit files that include the student’s SSID/UIN and continue to try to obtain students’ appropriate number and submit additional files as the students’ numbers are provided.

Only students/parents can request and receive the SSID/UIN number:

  • For public school students - Get your SSID by calling your school counselor or your district’s EMIS coordinator.
  • For nonpublic or home school students - Your UIN is located in the student’s award letter. Parents may obtain the letter by logging into their SAFE account and accessing their student’s application. For further help, call or email Wendy Casterline at Wendy.Casterline@education.ohio.gov or 614-728-5002.

ODHE/ODE cannot give the number(s) to postsecondary institutions.

College Credit Plus Default Funding Structure

The College Credit Plus program default funding structure is established by Ohio Revised Code 3365.07. The CCP default amounts are based on the Per Pupil Foundation rate, that is determined by Ohio’s General Assembly and may change annually.

In 2017-2018 the foundation amount is $6,010.

To calculate the ceiling per credit hour rate:

  1. Multiply $6,010 by .83 
  2. Divide the result by 30 = the Ceiling per credit hour amount. [$166.28 for 2017-2018, semesters] 

A course delivered off campus (in a high school) with faculty instruction is 50% of the ceiling rate [$83.14 for 2017-2018, semesters]

The floor is 25% of the ceiling rate [$41.57 for 2017-2018 - semester-based].

Note: House Bill 49 (2017) clarified that the default ceiling payments under College Credit Plus shall not be more than the college’s or university’s standard tuition rate.

 

Understanding the College Credit Plus law

This presentation tool is meant to explain selected elements and principles of Ohio’s dual enrollment program, College Credit Plus. It is meant to provide guidance. It is not meant to represent the law in its entirety. Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365 will govern this program as of its effective date of September 15, 2014. 

 

College Credit Plus Library Resources

Being enrolled in College Credit Plus means that students will be doing college-level research. How will the appropriate research materials be made available to them?

The college or university in which the student is enrolled for College Credit Plus will provide the student with access to the research materials necessary to complete the course. Students should have access to materials available through the college’s or university’s library.

You can also learn more about how students can use INFOhio's College Credit Plus Library Resources.

The INFOhio site features different tabs for students, teachers, librarians, parents, and guidance counselors. Each tab contains search tools, helpful links, and checklists to make sure College Credit Plus students and teachers have the resources they need to meet the demands of College Credit Plus writing and research. OhioLINK tools are available to College Credit Plus participants affiliated with OhioLINK institutions. INFOhio electronic tools are offered free to Ohio PreK-12 schools, public and private, traditional and online.
