College Credit Plus Program
Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO)
Each participating college/university has established admission criteria and course registration procedures that high school students must follow. Students and parents should read Ohio Revised Code sections 3365.02, 3365.041 and 3365.07 carefully before electing this option.
Students participating in PSEO will not be allowed to drop a course once the school year has begun unless there are extenuating circumstances approved by the high school administration, counselors, and Dean of the college or designee. High School PSEO credit(s) will not be granted until all borrowed books and materials have been returned to the post-secondary institution.
Students have two PSEO enrollment options:
- House Bill 215 allows students to enroll in college courses during the summer or in the evenings for both high school and college credit. ALL costs of tuition, books, materials, and fees are the responsibility of students and their parents/guardians.
- Enrollment in college courses for both high school and college credit: The school district and the college will pay for ALL costs of tuition, books, materials, and fees based upon the number of courses taken and if a student meets specific qualifications.
If a student is withdrawn from a course because of extenuating circumstances outlines previously or fails a course(s), the student and his/her parents/guardians, not the district, must pay all costs of tuition, books, materials, and fees. The grade earned in any course taken under PSEO will be included in the student's GPA. The Exempted Grade Option (EGO) will not be available for courses taken under the PSEO. The grade earned in any PSEO class is not weighted.
During the second semester, the district will invite students and their parents to attend a meeting where they will be informed about the advantages and disadvantages of the Post-Secondary Enrollment Option Program.
Prior to March 31st, the student and his/her parents/guardians must inform the high school in writing of the student’s intent to participate in this program for the following school year. Failure to meet this deadline will exclude a student from program participation for the following school year.
