For College Credit Plus and Credit in Escrow Students
If you are a high school student interested in earning college credit before you graduate, the steps below are everything you need to do to apply, enroll, and prepare for classes at LCCC.
Will your classes transfer?
Online tools like Transferology can help give you an idea. This nation-wide network can help you explore college transfer options. Always work with an advisor at LCCC or your future destination for full academic planning.
Attend a College Credit Plus Information Session
Sessions are held each year either at your high school or LCCC and take place between October and February.
Complete your “Intent to Participate” Form
This form is due each year by April 1. Public school students submit this form to their school district. Homeschooled and nonpublic school students must submit their form to the State of Ohio, as well as additional funding paperwork.
Complete the College Credit Plus Application if you have never applied or have never completed an LCCC credit course. If you are applying as a Credit-In-Escrow student, please indicate that in section 2 of the CCP Application.
