One Class, Twice the Credit!
Welcome to College Credit Plus (CCP). Youngstown State University (YSU) is pleased that you aspire to get a head start on your college career!
Pennsylvania students are welcome to enroll in dual enrollment at YSU. Please note the "College Credit Plus" legislation for Ohio does not govern dual enrollment for Pennsylvania students. You are responsible for the cost of tuition and must select Option A (see below, Student Cost: Option A vs B) for your payment method. Please contact your school counselor to discuss how the credit earned may apply to your high school transcript.
This student handbook answers many questions. We highly recommend that you take a few minutes and explore the topics below. If you have additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your school district's CCP coordinator or our office.
