Students do not need to reapply to Edison State on a yearly basis. However, each year students must follow state guidelines regarding the submission of a Letter of Intent. Nonpublic school students and home-school students must follow guidelines established by the Ohio Department of Education.*

    Returning students should follow Edison State CCP course registration procedures to enroll in courses for each semester of participation. As students progress through the CCP program, it may be necessary to submit updated academic records or to repeat the assessment process, in order to improve course eligibility.

    *NOTE  The "Letter of Good Standing" for returning nonpublic and homeschool students will be mailed out annually by Edison State, by approximately the first week of March. This letter is needed by returning nonpublic and homeschool students to complete the state's funding application process.

  • ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

  • Students may be eligible to take up to 30 credits hours per academic year. The number of hours allowed is based upon a formula, which includes the number of secondary school units (non-CCP courses) that the student is taking at their high school.
    Example:  30 – (secondary school units x 3) = total number of college credits available for the student to take during academic year

    Students may not exceed 120 credit hours throughout their participation in the program. Students will incur out-of-pocket expenses for courses taken that exceed state-provided funding.

    State guidelines require CCP students to complete 15 credit hours of Level 1 coursework before progressing to Level 2 courses.

    Edison State Community College is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission and offers highly transferable courses to both public and private institutions nationwide. Many Edison State courses are part of either the Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) or the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM). The TAG is a set of statewide articulation agreements which guarantees the transfer of the course and credit to any Ohio public college or university. Likewise, when students complete an Edison State transfer module, the courses are guaranteed to transfer to any Ohio public college or university. It’s important to keep in mind that university programs will vary between institutions and some programs may require additional freshman or sophomore courses as prerequisites for junior or senior-level courses. Therefore, students are encouraged to seek out academic advising in order to refine their academic goals and determine an appropriate educational pathway.
