CCP | College Credit Plus

Effective 3/24/2020, Cincinnati State is suspending the requirement of the CCP Authorization Worksheet as part of the admission process.  While the CCP Authorization Worksheet remains a step in the process, we can proceed with orientation, advising and course registration even though the CCP Authorization Worksheet is not yet on file during this period of COVID-19 adjustments. 

We are no longer able to allow students to come to campus to take the Accuplacer test.  Therefore, for now, Cincinnati State will be relying heavily on high school transcripts for placement purposes.  High School Algebra II with a B average or better and two levels of high school English/Language Arts with a B average or better are great indicators of college readiness.  Transcripts do not have to be signed or official; we can accept emailed transcripts for the purpose of CCP.
