College Credit Plus (CCP) permits high ability students in grades 7 through 12 to complete college coursework for high school and/or college credit. The University of Mount Union allows students to participate in CCP either on campus or at regional high school sites.
Students seeking admission into the College Credit Plus program must have at least a 3.0 GPA and demonstrate college readiness by meeting Mount Union’s admission standards and the Uniform Statewide College Readiness Standards. Mount Union determines college readiness in part by using ACT or SAT scores.
However, in response to COVID, the State of Ohio has provided the following accommodation: Colleges may use either the student’s scores on an assessment exam or the student’s unweighted high school cumulative grade point average (GPA) to determine eligibility. A minimum unweighted cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 is required. This flexibility item will continue to be reviewed to ensure that students have appropriate access to participate in the College Credit Plus program and additional guidance may be forthcoming. View the College Credit Plus resource to learn more about the flexibility and guidance for colleges and universities.
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.
