  • Official Transcript Request Form
    Students who wish to transfer credits earned at Cincinnati State to another college or university must request an official transcript. It is highly recommended students submit this one time, at the end of their participation in the CCP Program at Cincinnati State. Further, it is strongly suggested students choose to have the transcript sent after “Current semester grades are posted” to ensure complete transcripts when sending them to another institution.

CCP Student Expectations

  • Check SurgeMail daily
    • As a CCP student, important communication is delivered via SurgeMail.  Students are held accountable to and responsible for understanding the information shared via SurgeMail.
  • Participate in classes as a college student
    • Although CCP students may be high school age, or younger, when taking a college course, students are expected to behave and participate in the classroom, virtual or physical, as a college student. Instructors and other students do not know there are high school students participating in the class.
  • Adhere to the rules and guidelines provided in the Student Handbook as any other Cincinnati State student.
    • Remember, CCP is your program. You are a college student and are bound by the same rules and policies as traditional college students. 
  • Communicate regularly with both Cincinnati State representatives and high school counselors.
    • CCP students are required to provide their high schools a copy of their course registration.
    • Careful communication between student, high school and college help ensure all parties are aware of important issues such as:
      • High School graduation requirements
      • Student schedules
      • Other academic and non-academic concerns and issues

Students with Disabilities: IDEA and ADA

College students must self-identify or disclose their disability. CCP students must contact 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.
