YSU CCP Pathways

College Credit Plus gives you the chance to earn college credit prior to graduating high school at no cost (under Option B) to you. Many school districts are able to offer YSU courses right in the high school building, so you can take the classes as part of your regular school day. You can also come to campus, and take classes online.

The credit pathways shown below, and the courses listed in our brochure, are examples of courses that count towards degrees and transfer to other University System of Ohio colleges and universities. YSU also offers pathways for majors in STEM, health and human services, business, education, creative arts and communications, and liberal arts and social sciences. You can view the curriculum requirements for our academic programs here. Our advisors are ready to help you choose the best path for your future degree.
