College Credit Plus| Program

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." Learn more from the Ohio Department of Education.
