Start here. Go far.
To begin the process, all students should attend a CCP info session at their high school (usually held between November and February 15th). For more detailed information, families should also attend a CCP Planning Session at WSCC (available dates are listed below).
To be considered for admission to the Early College Academy (CCP at Washington State or online), follow these steps:
- Submit the Letter of Intent to your high school by May 1.* For a copy of the Intent to Participate form click here.
- Complete the WSCC Online application (please make sure to indicate you are still in high school and intend to take classes through CCP) or complete the paper application.
- In order for WSCC to discuss your enrollment with parents you will need to complete a FERPA release by clicking here. FERPA stands for the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and is a Federal Law that protects the privacy of student education records, including financial, academic and/or advising records. Without a release on file, a student's parent or guardian will not be able to assist in the registration process.
- Submit your official high school transcript. Ask for ACT/SAT scores to be included on high school transcript. If you have college credit from another institution, please request an official college transcript be sent to WSCC from that institution.
- Complete the placement test as determined by your College Pathway Advisor at WSCC. Don’t forget to prep for your test.
- Make an advising appointment with a WSCC College Pathway Advisor at 740.568.1930 to get registered. Thinking about online courses? Complete our FREE online readiness course.
- Complete the Student/Parent Acknowledgement form and submit it to your College Pathway Advisor or the Student OneStop. For a copy of the form click here.
- After registering for CCP classes at WSCC, take a copy of your college schedule to your high school guidance counselor.
- Attend CCP Fall Orientation at WSCC (usually held in July and August).
*All students MUST submit a Letter of Intent to their high school every year that they plan to take college classes, regardless if those college classes are taken on a college campus, online, or at the high school. Typically, this deadline is April 1 each year. For the 2021-2022 school year, this deadline has been extended to May 1, 2021. Students who attend a non-public high school or are home-schooled must submit their Letter of Intent to the Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) by May 1.
NOTE: If you're interested in taking CCP classes at your high school, WSCC will coordinate the entire enrollment process with your school counselor. However, you must make sure you turn in your Letter of Intent by the deadline!
