College Credit Plus (CCP) & Dual Enrollment Programs

For high school students who wish to take college courses for both high school and college credit

Ohio's state-funded program, College Credit Plus, allows Ohio high school students to get a head start on college by enrolling in college courses while they are in high school.

For non-Ohio residents, we also offer a similar option, the Dual Enrollment program.

Did you know that:

College courses you take at Malone before you graduate from high school can be credited toward your Malone bachelor’s degree, helping you finish college more quickly? Courses may also be transferred.

Malone’s participation in College Credit Plus means that, if you are enrolled at a public high school, there is no cost to the student or parent. 

Limited funding is provided by the State of Ohio for homeschooled students and private (nonpublic) high school students.

CCP makes a difference!

“College Credit Plus allowed me to take college coursework that was challenging to me-- and I saved money at the same time! Thanks to CCP, I am able to graduate a year and a half early!”
