College Credit Plus

College Credit Plus (CCP) allows eligible students grades 7 through 12 to earn high school and college credit.  The purpose of CCP is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. Typically, taking a college course through the College Credit Plus program is free to the student - that means no cost for tuition, books or fees.  All courses in the Rhodes State College catalog are available to CCP students.  Students should work with their high school counselor and with the CCP Coordinator to determine appropriate courses.

CCP Courses can be taken in a number of ways, including:

  • At the high school taught by a Rhodes State College approved high school instructor 
  • At the high school taught by a Rhodes State instructor
  • At the Rhodes State College campus taught by a Rhodes State instructor
  • Online taught by a Rhodes State instructor
