2018-2019 College Credit Plus Program - New Philadelphia High School
Important Information For Students and Parents
The College or University, not the High School, determines whether or not a student is admitted into the College Credit Plus (CCP) program, and if admitted, to what extent.
Students enrolled in CCP must, no matter their chronological age, be mature, independent, and responsible enough to handle the role of “college student.” There is a high expectation of study time outside the classroom in college courses. Additionally, there will be times during the school day when students will not be at NPHS or at college (travel time, no college classes on Friday, etc.) and therefore on their own without supervision.
Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the college campus.
Students can not earn more than the equivalent of 30 total sem. hours per academic year. (If student is part time CCP, each high school credit is multiplied by 3, then subtracted from 30).
Students must pass their college courses. Students/parents are responsible for paying cost of books and tuition for any failed college courses and for courses dropped after the deadline.
Athletes are responsible for providing their grades each nine weeks to the Athletic Department in order to provide proof of eligibility. It is important to note that in college, official grades are only given at the end of each semester. Therefore, students must acquire a report of their grades from their professors at the end of the first and third nine-weeks.
College policy stipulates that parents do not have access to their child’s college information. Only the student, no matter the chronological age, can request this information.
Students and parents are strongly encouraged to attend a CCP Information/Orientation Session hosted by the college. This event offers a true picture of expectations and allows for questions to be answered. The second & final Kent State Tuscarawas’ session will be held January 30, 2018 from 6:00-7:15 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center.
There may be schedule conflicts between NPHS and the college, so there is no guarantee that a student will be able to take all requested courses.
Students and parents must notify NPHS in writing of their intent to participate in the CCP Program, along with a signed form by April 1st of the prior school year. Please stop by the guidance office to pick up your form.
