College Credit Plus (CCP) at the University of Mount Union

College Credit Plus (CCP) replaces Ohio’s Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program (PSEO) and all alternative dual enrollment programs previously governed by Ohio Revised Code Chapter 3365. This program permits high ability students in grades 7-12 to complete college coursework for high school and/or college credit, at either the university or high school site.

Criteria for Eligibility

Students seeking admission into the College Credit Plus program must have at least a 3.0 GPA and demonstrate college readiness by meeting the University of Mount Union’s admission standards and the Uniform Statewide College Readiness Standards. The University of Mount Union determines college readiness* in part by using ACT or SAT scores. Students who wish to take courses in mathematics or take courses that have a mathematics prerequisite may also be required to complete the University’s math placement assessment to determine college readiness in mathematics. The University will accept placement scores through either Accuplacer or PlaceU. *ACT College Readiness Benchmarks https://www.act.org/content/act/en/education-and-career-planning/college-and-career-readiness-standards/benchmarks.html
