4/8/2020 UPDATE from LCCC for program acceptance and course requirements:
Statewide Eligibility=3.0 cumulative GPA
LCCC will admit any CCP student who applied for summer and fall 2020 semesters who has a cumulative GPA of 3.0. This includes weighted or unweighted grades.
*If a student who applied for summer/fall 2020 previously tested below the statewide remediation free standards, LCCC will now admit that student if their cumulative GPA is at least a 3.0.
*LCCC will be sending admission letters to students in the coming week letting them know their admission status.
For Course Placement (this is AFTER a student has been admitted to LCCC with a 3.0 GPA):
*For all Math courses, ALEKS is still available for students to test. Those standards have not changed for placement into Math courses.
*For ENGL 161 (College Composition): Students with a 3.0 unweighted GPA who have completed at least 4 semesters of high school coursework will place into ENGL 161 OR students with a 3.0 unweighted GPA and a Writing Sample of 7 or higher will also place into ENGL 161.
*For now, the English placements are only for summer and fall 2020 semesters.
** All guidelines are tentative until the Ohio Board of Regents finalizes the College Credit Plus program.
Starting in the 2015-2016 school year, College Credit Plus(CC+) replaces Ohio’s’ Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO)and all other dual enrollment program. In order to enroll in CC+ courses, a student must:
1. attend a parent/ student meeting informing all involved in the benefits and state wide changes in the program.
2. apply to college in accordance with the college’s established procedures for admission and
3. meet the established standards for admission and for course placement of the college/ university
Vermilion High School is partnering with Lorain Community College to offer eligible students transcripted credit opportunities with Transfer Assurance Guides (TAG) courses. TAG courses are identified foundational/pre-major courses in over 30 majors that are guaranteed to transfer and apply toward that major at any of Ohio's public institutions of higher education. Courses may transfer to private Ohio institutions and out-of-state institutions of higher education. Check with the receiving institution regarding their transfer credit policy.

VHS students are not limited to taking only the CCP courses offered on-site. Students may also participate in CCP on-line, or at any other participating institution of higher education. Likewise, students may be concurrently enrolled in, and taking courses from, multiple post-secondary institutions (ex BGSU- Firelands).
For eligible students electing to participate in CCP off-campus, transportation is not provided by the school district, nor are reimbursement costs for transportation, such as mileage. Transportation and associated costs are the sole responsibility of the student and his or her parents/guardian.
CCP courses taken from public institutions of higher education are offered to eligible students cost-free. However, earning a grade of an "F" in a CCP course, or failure to complete the course, other than for reasons generally accepted by the school district, will result in all financial obligations of the course defaulting to the students and his or her parents/guardian.
A student who enrolls in CCP courses at a nonpublic institution of higher education, and who is not economically disadvantaged, may have to pay course fees and associated costs.
Final grades earned in all CCP courses will post to the high school transcript and will be included in the calculation of grade point average.
In order to participate in this academic opportunity, parents and students must attend a mandatory information meeting regarding enrolling in CCP. Similarly, a student must participate in a counseling session prior to his or her participation in CCP.
A student or his or her parents/guardian must inform the VHS counseling office by April 1 of the student's intent to participate in this program during the following school year. This deadline is state mandated.
