Updated College Credit Plus Information

The information below is intended for those students who are not already participating in the College Credit Plus (CCP) program and for those students who have not already applied to the College Credit Plus (CCP) program for the 2020-21 school year.

Given the uncertain conditions as to when we will return to school, I wanted to give you an update on the College Credit Plus program as it relates to the 2020-21 school year.  If you have an interest in pursuing College Credit Plus courses, whether taken at a local college (Lakeland Community College or Lake Erie College) or at Riverside High School, you can still apply to these institutions.  Note: CCP courses taken at Riverside High School require that you complete the Lakeland Community College application requirements.

If you choose to apply, please notify your school counselor immediately, so that we can send your high school transcript to either institution listed above.  I have been in contact with both schools and we are able to send them high school transcripts in an electronic format.

While both Lakeland and Lake Erie College require the Accuplacer placement test, that is currently on hold until both campuses re-open.  In the meantime, the state of Ohio is exploring options whereby testing may not be a necessary requirement for CCP participation.  More information will be provided on this matter as it becomes available.

In order to start the CCP application process, it is required that each student submit two forms; “Intent to Participate” and “Information Certification.”  See THESE FORMS.  The state of Ohio has extended the deadline to submit these forms until May 1, 2020.  If you plan to pursue the CCP program, please print out the forms, complete them, and send the forms back to your school counselor.  If you are unable to scan the forms, you may take a picture of the two completed forms and send them in that format.  

More information about the CCP program can be found in the “College Credit Plus Guide Book” located on the Guidance page of the Riverside High School web-site.  Information in the “Guide Book” will help answer questions related to the “Information Certification” form.

If you submit a CCP application to either college, please notify your school counselor as soon as possible, so that we can send your high school transcript.  See application links below.
