Where can students take courses?

Eligible students can take courses at the high school taught by a high school teacher, at the high school taught by a college instructor, or at the college (online or live).  Students may choose to take courses in any combination of formats.

What does it cost?

There is no cost for the student to participate in College Credit Plus when the student is enrolled in a public college or university.  The high school and college share the cost for the course(s).  Students choosing to enroll in a participating private college or university might incur costs.
