College Credit Plus

   
Get Both High School and College Credit
    for FREE!

Ohio’s College Credit Plus program (formerly PSEO) is a popular choice for students - and for good reason. This program allows students to earn college credits while in high school, all for free. Students can enroll in courses at LCCC and receive dual credit for high school requirements and for college credit. These credits may be used at LCCC or for transfer to the college or university of choice after high school graduation. This state-funded program covers tuition, books and fees.

Students may choose to: 

  • Take courses on one of LCCC's campuses or online 
  • Take courses at their High School 
  • Take courses during the summer 
        

 
     The MyUniversity program, a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools, provides a pathway for high school students to the full college experience – starting in high school! MyUniversity builds on Ohio’s College Credit Plus program where 7-12 grade students can begin their college pathway before graduating from high school. Additionally, MyUniversity students have the opportunity to graduate high school with both an associate degree and a high school diploma, free of charge and well on their way to the bachelor’s degree from the University Partnership.
