If you are an Ohio student in grades 7-12 you can apply for College Credit Plus admission. The college will admit you based on your college-readiness in one or more subject areas. Your school counselor can help you understand your options, deadlines, and how to proceed. You may not participate in the College Credit Plus program beyond your anticipated high school graduation date.

Start by talking with your school counselor about what steps need to be taken at your school, and attend your school’s CCP Night.

Step 1: Complete the Letter of Intent to Participate in College Credit Plus. This needs to be done each year, and is to be submitted to your school counselor by April 1. Here is a link to the form provided by the state of Ohio:

Step 2: Apply for admission to Marion Technical College.  The online CCP application can be found here:

Students can Drop a course by the Census Date and it will appear as if they never attended, there will be no transcript entry, and no charges will be accrued.  Students can Withdraw from a course later in the term.  The last day to withdraw from a class is typically around the tenth week of a sixteen week term, check the MTC calendar for specific dates each term.  If a student Withdraws from a course, a W will be listed for that course on their transcript, it will not impact their GPA, but charges will be applied to their account.

A prerequisite is a course, or condition that must be met before you can register for a subsequent course. Students must meet course prerequisites before moving on to higher level courses. They may also need to pass a placement test as part of a prerequisite for a course. Check with your advisor if you have questions about prerequisites.

If you are interested in taking classes offered at your high school, you would talk to your school counselor. If you are interested in taking classes offered at MTC or online, you would contact Ellie Hess at MTC, 740-386-4132, to schedule an advising appointment.

CCP students may need to show their midterm grade(s).  Here are two options:

  1. Email your professor and request your current grade. (Some high schools have forms that can be scanned and emailed.) Forward the response to your school counselor.
  2. Login to your Canvas account and print or screenshot your current grades to submit to your school counselor.

CCP students must schedule their classes with an advisor. During your last advising appointment, alert your advisor that you will be graduating. Your advisor will go over the transition steps for CCP students.  If it’s been some time since you have taken your college classes, or you want to prepare for an advising appointment after you’ve graduated, you will need to reapply to the college as a general student.  The general application can be found here.

Classes taught at the high schools by MTC or high school faculty follow the MTC calendar.  As a faculty member, please follow the due dates sent by your course coordinator.  Grade submission instructions can be found in that named section in the handbook.
