CCP 2022 - 2023 New Student Application

The 2022-2023 new student application is closed.

The deadline to apply was April 15, 2022.


Are you a New or Continuing CCP Student?

  • A new student is one who never enrolled in a CCP class at YSU, even if they have applied and attended orientation previously. You will follow the directions below to apply. 
  • A continuing student is one who has completed or is currently enrolled in at least one CCP course with YSU. Follow these directions to submit your continuing student form.

How do we define a home school student?

  • A home school student has a Superintendent’s Exemption Notice from the school district the student would have attended. This notice states that the family will be responsible for teaching the student at home in lieu of being enrolled at the school district for instruction.
  • If you are enrolled in a public school district but enrolled in remote learning through the school district, you are still considered a public-school student.
  • If you are enrolled in an online school, such as Buckeye Online School for Success, Ohio Connections Academy, or Ohio Virtual Academy, you are a public-school student.
  • If you are unsure what category you fall in, contact our office for help before you apply.

Before You Apply

  • Discuss the program with your parents/guardians. Review the College Credit Plus (CCP) online brochure*. In addition to valuable program information, there are also great resources to help navigate your pathway to college.
  • If you have any questions about the program please see your CCP coordinator (list by county).
  • Understand Eligibility, Admission & Course Placement: Review the Eligibility, Admission, and Course Placement information. If you are unsure of whether or not you qualify for the YSU CCP program, please contact your school counselor to discuss other CCP options.
  • Your school CCP coordinator reviews course options and high school graduation requirements with you to determine what courses to register for. If you are taking a campus or online course, the Campus Education Plan (Coming Soon!) is completed at this time. Either you or your school counselor can submit this form to our office by email ( or fax (330-941-2446).
  • Notify your school (or the state if a non-public or home-school student) of your intent to participate in CCP by April 1, 2022.
