College Credit Plus

Attend College While in High School with CCP

Get the most out of your high school years. The College Credit Plus program at Zane State College allows you to earn college credit (even an associate degree!) while earning your high school diploma. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready high-school students. 

Save Now and Save More Later

College Credit Plus can cover the cost for tuition, books or fees. CCP students who continue to attend ZSC after graduating high school are eligible to apply for an exclusive CCP FULL TUITION scholarship in addition to other scholarships they receive. 

Pursue a Degree

You can work toward an associate degree while still in high school. Students can choose between the “Pathways” programs designed for College Credit Plus students or another degree offering at ZSC. Many students graduate with an Associate Degree from Zane State College at the time they are graduating high school.

Earn general education credits that can be applied to a bachelor’s degree offered at another higher education institution. Specific general education courses fit the Ohio Transfer Module and are guaranteed to transfer among Ohio’s public colleges and universities.
