 ** 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.

Transfer to Degree Guarantee -T2DG enables Ohio students to streamline credit transfer among the state's public institutions of higher education and from adult/secondary career-technical institutions to find the best pathways to degree completion and launch successful careers.

T2DG helps students meet general education requirements, as well as requirements in 60+ career-oriented programs when transferring equivalent coursework.

T2DG encompasses courses/programs offered by Ohio public institutions of higher education and adult/secondary public career-technical institutions. T2DG also includes Advanced Placement and military training and experience.
