EARNING COLLEGE CREDIT
WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL
Overview of CC+
WHAT IS COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS?
•
College Credit Plus (CC+) is an opportunity for qualified high
school students to take college classes before graduation
•
CC+ Covers all dual credit programs
•
•
•
•
High School and College Credit
Free of charge to the student
On campus, at the high school and on-line
Students may also participate in a self-pay option. These
students will receive college credit (no high school credit
available)
Self-Pay
WHY WOULD I DO SELF-PAY?
1. Self-Pay is the only option available during the summer
2. Self-pay students may not want to have college classes on
the high school transcript
3. Non-public and Home School students may do self-pay if they
do not receive state funding for CC+
What does CC+ Cover?
•
CC+ students will have costs paid by the school district. This
includes:
•
•
•
•
Tuition
Books (student may be required to return at the end of the
term)
Fees
CC+ does not include:
•
•
Optional Fees (parking, gym membership)
Transportation
Maximum Credit Hours
•
CC+ Limits students to 30 credit hours MAX per academic year
Formula to determine eligible college hours:
•
Take student’s # of high school only Carnegie units and multiply by 3.
•
Subtract that answer from 30.
•
This will give you the number of hours for which student may earn in that academic year.
Benefits of CC+
•
Free college credit
•
Opportunity to enroll in classes not available at high school
•
Exposure to college faculty/ college expectations
•
College credit may transfer easily (especially between public

than high school coursework

most rigorous courses
