UT’s College Credit Plus Program: innovative technology, expert faculty and the most course options available to the dual credit student.

The University of Toledo’s College Credit Plus program gives college-bound middle and high school students the opportunity to earn college credit and high school credit simultaneously. This gives students the advantage of starting the transition to college early, while reducing the cost and length of time to receive a degree since they will have already received college credit that can be applied toward their college graduation requirements.

Middle and high school students can take part in the college experience, interacting with full-time college students and university faculty, while experiencing the rigor of college-level courses.

More Courses Available

All courses in the UT catalog are available to CCP students who meet any prerequisites or requirements at the regularly scheduled class time, and many are available online. However, remedial courses are not allowable under the CCP program.

More Access and Guaranteed Transferability

Additionally, a selection of high quality, Ohio Transfer Module compliant general education courses are offered in a variety of modalities. With these courses access is improved and transferability to Ohio public colleges and universities is guaranteed. 

To maximize accessibility, convenience and scheduling flexibility, courses can be taken six different ways.

  • 100% Online - Synchronous (Set time and day)
  • 100% Online - Asynchronous (Anytime. Anywhere)
  • Blended (online and classroom) - UT Campus
  • Blended (online and classroom) - High School Campus
  • Face to Face - Classroom on UT Campus
  • Face to Face - Classroom on High School Campus 

In addition to the general education courses, there are many entry-level dual credit courses offered that are one hundred percent in the classroom on UT’s campus or online.
