The last test dates we accept ACT/SAT scores to be considered for eligibility and admission are

If you have NOT taken the ACT or SAT or do NOT have qualifying scores listed under the YES column, you may take YSU’s CCP Eligibility and Admission Test. This is the only free CCP Eligibility and Admission Test offered by YSU.

Please call 330-941-2447 to sign up for the test. You may also be able to take the test at your high school. Check with your school counselor to see if your school has scheduled a testing date with YSU. Be sure to complete the online CCP application; taking the CCP Eligibility and Admission test does not admit you to the program.  You will receive your scores the day you take the test.

You are eligible to participate in CCP and can be admitted to YSU if you have the following: 

An unweighted cumulative HS GPA of 2.0*, an unweighted core HS GPA of 2.0*, AND one of the following eligibility test scores: 

  • Writing 263
  • Reading 250
  • Math 263

Students admitted to the YSU CCP Program through the YSU CCP Eligibility and Admission Test need to complete course placement testing and receive a qualifying score to register for certain English, Math, Communication, and Science courses.

For the 2023-2024 school year, the CCP Eligibility and Admission Test is available from October 1, 2022, through March 28, 2023. The deadline to sign up for the test is March 21, 2023.

*Your cumulative GPA calculates the grades for all of your classes. A core GPA is calculated using ONLY your grades in Math, English, Science, Social Studies, and any foreign language classes you have taken. If you do not have a C or better in your core classes, please get in touch with our office, or discuss it with your school counselor, before you apply.

Note: We do not round up for either GPA. We use middle school grades and any classes taken for HS credit to determine GPAs for middle school students.

 

If you cannot answer yes to any of the options above, you are not eligible for College Credit Plus.
