Hocking College's CCP Program

Ohio’s College Credit Plus program can help you earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students.

Benefits of taking CCP courses for students and their families include:

  • Early exposure to college coursework, rigor and expectations
  • Opportunity to experiment with a field of interest while taking a course on the Hocking College campus
  • Credit transfer opportunities.

And the best part? Taking a college course from a public college or university is free. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees.

For Teachers

You've got questions and we've got answers! Explore our resources below to learn how you can teach CCP courses at your high school or career center.

High school instructors of college credit courses must meet the requirements for faculty teaching in institutions of higher education, as stipulated for accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission and the Ohio Board of Higher Education.

Faculty teaching general education courses or other non-occupational courses must hold a master's degree or higher in the discipline or subfield.

If a faculty member holds a master's degree or higher in a discipline or subfield other than that in which he or she is teaching, the faculty member should have completed a minimum of 18 graduate credit hours in the discipline or subfield in which they teach.

Each institute of higher education evaluates transcripts based on its own interpretation.

Instructors who teach a College Credit Plus course in a high school will receive periodic professional development. All credentialed high school faculty will be considered non-paid, adjunct instructors at Hocking College. This distinction may be used as part of a professional résumé and may give instructors the opportunity to teach courses for Hocking College on-campus and online in addition to their courses at the high schools.

Teachers who are interested in applying to teach College Credit Plus courses should contact Katie Walters, at waltersk32910@hocking.edu or 740-753-6083.
