Dual Enrollment Options at LCCC 

Ohio Post-Secondary Enrollment Option B
Get Both High School and College Credit for FREE

The Ohio Post-Secondary Enrollment Option B program 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. Under this program, students 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. Even books and other fees are covered under this state-funded program. The deadline for application is June 15 for fall semester and October 15 for spring semester.

LCCC Credit In Escrow
Earn College Credit NOW That You Can Use Later

LCCC's Credit In Escrow program allows qualifying high school students to take college courses to receive college credit and students can choose to have college courses count toward high school graduation. Credits are then utilized at LCCC or for transfer to the college or university of choice. Under this program, tuition and all associated course costs are the responsibility of the student. Also, qualifying high school students who want to take courses at LCCC and are eligible for participation in the Option B program but who miss the Option B filing deadline, may participate in this program.


College Opportunity Partnership Program (COPP)

LCCC’s College Opportunity Partnership Program expands opportunity for area high school student in their high schools.  These courses provide both high school and college credit without the student needing to attend campus. These credits may be used at LCCC or for transfer to the college or university of choice after high school graduation.

Eligibility Requirements for Dual Enrollment Programs

Students who are currently attending chartered or non-chartered, public or private high schools are eligible to participate in Dual Enrollment. Students currently in the eighth grade may apply now to participate for when they are freshmen. Home-educated students may participate in LCCC's Dual Enrollment programs if they turn 14 years old before September 30 of the year they wish to enroll.

To participate in the Ohio Option B program, students need to notify their high school officials (usually a guidance counselor or principal) of their intent to participate by March 30 prior to the academic year they wish to begin. School officials are then required to supply LCCC with the necessary academic information on students who are applying for participation. Home-educated students need to inform the superintendent of the school district in which they live of their intent to participate (this for the Credit in Escrow program only). A sign-off or proof of notification from the superintendent is necessary to participate.

Application Deadlines: Students must meet application deadlines in order to participate in any of the above programs. For participation in the PSEO Option B or COPP program for fall semester, all application materials (see following information) must be received by June 15 prior to the academic year they wish to begin. For participation in the PSEO Option B or COPP program for spring semester, all application materials must be received by LCCC by October 15 (subject to notification of district by March 30). For the LCCC Credit In Escrow program, students need to submit application materials no later than three weeks prior to the start of the semester in which they wish to begin.

College Readiness Clause 
If you don't quite meet all of the GPA requirements for the PSEO Option B or Credit in Escrow programs, you still have a chance to participate. Under a special Talent Clause qualification, students who are exceptional in a particular area (such as history or art or science) and have received grades no lower than a B in these areas, may be recommended for participation in the Option B or Credit in Escrow programs at LCCC. Students are then allowed to enroll in college courses in these particular areas. Talent Clause applicants are reviewed for participation on a case-by-case basis.

Application for Admission
The Dual Enrollment Application for Admission is available from your high school guidance counselor.
