What benefits do I get from taking CCP classes?
College Credit Plus provides more options for students to pursue rigorous academic coursework beyond the high school classroom. Under College Credit Plus, you can complete your freshman year of college or more or explore college content that interests you. Earning college credits while you’re in high school can reduce the time and cost of attending college after high school, or allow for lighter college semester loads—helpful if you plan to participate in college athletics or study abroad.
I have taken CCP classes at Clark State Community College. Can I transfer those classes to Wittenberg?
Yes! In order to transfer completed coursework from another college or university, you will need to request an official transcript be sent to Wittenberg University for evaluation. Classes must be completed with a “C” or higher in order to count for transfer credit.
How might CCP classes taken at Clark State Community College help me at Wittenberg?
Coursework completed at another college or university can sometimes fulfill prerequisites needed at Wittenberg. For example, if you successfully completed English 101 at another institution, you can transfer this course to Wittenberg and it will fulfill the prerequisite for any Wittenberg course requiring the previous completion of English 101.
Do I have to complete Wittenberg placement exams if I have already taken the COMPASS placement exam at Clark State Community College?
Yes. If you are interested in taking a Math, Science, or Foreign Language course at Wittenberg, you must complete the Wittenberg placement exam(s). Note: In some cases, we can accept your SAT/ACT math score in place of the math placement exam. For more information, visit the Math Workshop website.
What happens if I take more than the number of credit hours approved by the state?
High school students may choose to enroll in more credits than approved by the state. In these cases, students will be billed directly by Wittenberg University the CCP rate of $160 per credit.
