The College Credit Plus program was recently established by the State of Ohio to replace PSEO and Dual Enrollment Options. The program is designed to allow college-ready students, grades 7-12 who qualify for college admission, the opportunity to earn high school and college credit. College Credit Plus can include courses offered on a college campus, online or at the high school for which credit is awarded from the college. Knowing that college readiness is a requirement, Kent State Stark requires all students interested in College Credit Plus to submit ACT or SAT scores. These scores are used to determine college readiness for our new students.
Under Option B, high school students may earn both high school and college credit without paying for tuition, fees or textbooks. Option B can be used only for coursework taken in fall and spring semesters. Summer courses are not funded under Option B.
Under Option A, the student is responsible for paying the entire cost of the program directly to Kent State University. The student chooses to receive both high school and college credit, or only college credit. If the student chooses college credit only, the grade for the course is not factored into the high school grade point average. Students can attend fall, spring or summer semesters under Option A.
Kent State Stark will partner with area school districts to offer College Credit Plus Information Sessions in February and March 2015. Students and parents should plan to attend the session established specifically for their school district as district personnel will be present. Check back for additions.
