Lake Erie College's CCP program allows eligible students to earn high school and college credit that will appear on both their high school and college transcripts.
College Credit Plus (CCP) was enacted into Ohio law in September 2014. Effective with the 2015-2016 school year, CCP replaces the Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) program and redefines "alternative dual enrollment programs." .
Lake Erie College offers two options for College Credit Plus:
Take college courses on the LEC campus.
Take college courses at your high school from accredited teachers through our dual enrollment program. Speak with your guidance counselor to see if we are offering dual enrollment at your high school.
