College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus (CCP) is designed to help students earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to students in grades 7-12 who meet college admission requirements. As required by law, no fees will be charged to families for College Credit Plus classes taken through public universities.

Yellow Springs Schools (YSS) and Yellow Springs High School (YSHS) recognize the opportunities that CCP courses provide for students to enrich and enhance the academic program while in middle and high school, as well as the benefits to both students and families in preparation for continuing future academic careers. YSHS has embraced the concept of CCP and supports students that are academically, socially, and emotionally ready to begin college course work, whether that is on a college campus or through course options on our campus taught by our high school staff.

Please note that the timeline below refers to YSHS timelines related to students planning to participate in college coursework. Scheduling students in grades 7-12 begins in February, with the purpose of creating a master schedule that meets the needs of students and the district’s obligation to make fiscally responsible decisions regarding the number of staff and course sections necessary to maintain appropriate class sizes.


Students and parents are required to inform their school district that they intend to participate in the College Credit Plus program by April 1 for the following year, by completing and returning the Intent to Participate packet. Students that have previously participated in CCP are required to resubmit the intent packet annually.
