The Canfield Board of Education recognizes the value to students and to the District for students to participate in programs offered by accredited colleges and universities in Ohio. Through the College Credit Plus (CCP) program, eligible students can take a course and earn high school and college credit that appears on both their high school and college transcripts.
There is no cost to students to participate in the CCP program when a student is enrolled in a public college or university and earning both high school and college credit. Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs. Additionally, economically disadvantaged students who choose to attend a nonpublic college or university can do so at no cost. Tuition will be paid by the Canfield Local School district on behalf of the student to all public universities, and a portion will be paid to private universities.
To participate in the CCP program, the student must meet his/her college or university of choice’s standards for admission and course placement. The student and his/her parents must also participate in a counseling session provided by the district prior to participating.
The district will not limit a student’s participation in the CCP program to only the courses offered at the school. Students may also participate online or at any other participating college or university, or any combination thereof. Students may also concurrently enroll in multiple colleges and universities and may take courses from such institutions concurrently. The school counselor will advise them as to permissible hours in conjunction with Carnegie Units.
Students should review the course catalog of the participating colleges and universities for a full listing of course offerings. This information can be found on the websites of the individual universities.
