    financial challengesWe know that there has been a lot of stress and concern related to the updated FAFSA form.  Below are links to resources and information that financial aid professionals have been providing to us so that we can help support your families in the process.  Please know that many colleges are adjusting their FAFSA completion deadline and some are even extending the decision date deadlines to help aid families in making the final college choice that will be a good financial fit along with a good academic and social fit.  We encourage families to reach out directly to the college financial aid offices if you have questions about those dates and deadlines.

    College Credit Plus logo lo res jan2015

    What is it?

    College Credit Plus allows students in grades 7 - 12 to take courses and earn both high school and college credit.  The grades and credits earned appear on both the student's high school and college transcripts.  Students can earn up to 30 college credits per year.  (Maximum of 120 credit hours.)

    Where can students take courses?

    Eligible students can take courses at the high school taught by a high school teacher, at the high school taught by a college instructor, or at the college (online or live).  Students may choose to take courses in any combination of formats.

    What does it cost?

    There is no cost for the student to participate in College Credit Plus when the student is enrolled in a public college or university.  The high school and college share the cost for the course(s).  Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs.

    Intent to Participate Form Packet - COTC

    All students interested in participating in College Credit Plus (CC+) must attend an information counseling session addressing the opportunities available through CC+ including the possible consequences and benefits of participation.  This meeting requirement is being fulfilled by students and parents watching both Part 1 and Part 2 of the video and indicating that they have completed this requirement on the Intent to Participate Form.

    I want to participate in College Credit Plus - what do I do next?

    1. All students interested in participating in CC+ must complete and return the intent to participate form which also verifies that the student and parent have participated in the CC+ information counseling session and understand the rules related to participating in the program.  This form is due no later than April 1st in order for students to have the opportunity to participate in CC+ during the following school year.  Please note, this is a state established deadline.  
    2. After indicating intent to participate to the school district, students must apply for acceptance at the college/ university of their choice.
    3. Upon acceptance to the college, students will take the admissions/ placement tests needed by their individual colleges.  Please note that the colleges are authorized to substitute GPA for test scores.  Students must have a 3.0 GPA to qualify for CC+ classes.  If you do not have a 3.0 GPA, you will need to qualify with a placement test score.
    4. Students will work with their school counselor to adjust their course requests for next school year based upon their intended courses.  Please note that changes must be made within the confines of the master schedule.
