Current CCP Student & Families
You’ve made a smart choice
Congratulations on your great decision to earn college credit while you’re still in
high school, through CCP at Columbus State!
In a time when student loan debt has become a national crisis, Columbus State is committed to helping students earn a college degree debt-free. Through CCP, you will get a great head start on that goal!
In fact, since Columbus State began offering CCP courses in 2015, we’ve had 30 students earn their associate degree even before they graduated from high school. Because students and their families don’t pay tuition for CCP classes, these students completed their college degree at no cost.
CCP = Choices
Whether you choose to go for 60 credit hours through CCP (and earn your associate degree), or just want to take a few classes, you’re getting a great start on your debt-free college degree. And CCP offers great flexibility. You choose how many courses you want to take, and have options as where you take them:
- At your high school or designated district building (for public and non-public schools)
- At a Columbus State location
- Online through your high school (classes are available through your school’s online platform)
- Online through Columbus State
Start summer or autumn
Students who have submitted their Intent to Participate form for the 2018-19 academic year may begin classes either Summer Semester 2018 or Autumn Semester 2018. Summer CCP courses are new this year, and give you an extra opportunity to move ahead on your college degree, and your high school diploma.
Summer courses are available at Columbus State locations and online through Columbus State. Be sure to click the “New course eligibility rules for 2018” link below to determine what classes are eligible, then explore summer courses.
New course eligibility rules for 2018
New legislation was passed by the Ohio House in 2016 (HB 49) regarding courses that are eligible for CCP. Qualifying Course Information
Columbus State offers tools and advising to assist you in determining what college
