College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus

​​ College Credit Plus replaces Ohio's Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEOP) program and all dual enrollment programs.  This initiative establishes clear pathways for students to earn college credit, and is open to students in grades 7 through 12 who are deemed co​llege-read​y.  College Credit Plus is offered at no cost to students.

Our dedicated staff is here to help you navigate through the college-going process and answer any questions along the way.​
