College credit opportunities are available to students at no cost, offered at the Greene County Career Center. Students may also participate in College Credit Plus (CCP) Options at the home district, online, or at any participating institution of higher education.
When students sign up for courses at the Career Center, they can register for college credit in these courses. For additional college- credit courses, students may review course catalogues of other institutions of higher education at that institution’s website, at the home district, or in the counseling office at the Greene County Career Center.
Students registered for Greene County Career Center classes that are offered for college credit will be assigned a Career Center counselor and a college counselor to assist them in the college process.
Students graduating with college credits from Greene County Career Center and wishing to continue college are eligible to receive a non-competitive $3000 scholarship to attend Sinclair Community College post-graduation. Other scholarship opportunities are available at other colleges and universities. Please see a Career Center counselor for more information.
After graduating from high school, students can use CCP credits to continue education at an Ohio college to complete a certificate or degree program.
