Course Eligibility: Level I and Level II

Level I Courses:
Level I courses at Cincinnati State are made up primarily from among the introductory courses that are approved as part of the Ohio Department of Higher Education’s Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) and Oho Transfer Module (OTM). A summary of these kinds of courses can be found here: http://catalog.cincinnatistate.edu/academicdivisionsanddegreeampcertificateprograms/transfermodule/
Most CCP students complete their Level I course requirement from among these introductory courses. Other courses also apply to Level 1 including introductory (100 level) courses in Information Technology (IT). All college courses offered at any of our high school CCP partner locations are Level I courses.
Level II
Level II courses are available across most academic departments. Some exclusions apply. Courses that are included in the CCP course exclusion list can be found here: https://www.cincinnatistate.edu/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/Course20Exclusions20for20CCP20Students-202018-2019_0.pdf

Placement Testing

Please note:  Until further notice, please review the Testing Center webpage for the most current updates regarding Accuplacer.

All students require a placement test score to be considered eligible to participatein the CCP program. It is important to note there is a difference between program eligibility and course eligibility. To be eligible to participate in the CCP program, students must have at least one placement test sub score in the conditionally eligibility range, as outlined on the “College Credit Plus Student Eligibility Assessment Testing” chart. Course level eligibility requires the student has met the prerequisite for the course in which they wish to register. If the student does not have ACT, SAT, Accuplacer, or one of the other placement scores approved by the State, students will need to take the Accuplacer test.  

College Credit Plus:  Student Eligibility Assessment Testing

Partner schools may identify a designated school official and request to receiving Accuplacer Proctor training to be eligible to Accuplacer students in their high schools.  Partner schools interested in becoming an Accuplacer testing site, proctored by a designated high school official should contact Lorrie Cox for additional details:

College students must self-identify or disclose their disability.  CCP students must engage with the Office of Disability Services for accommodations and provide required documentation of disability. 

There is no Special Education at the college level.  Educational rights covered by IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Act) do not apply to postsecondary education.  Colleges must comply with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Civil Rights Restoration Act.  College students have civil rights, but no “education” rights.
