College Credit Plus allows students to attend college while still in grades 7-12 and to receive both high school and college credit for the courses taken at the college.
The intent of the program is to provide advanced coursework for students who have exhausted their options at the high school level or to provide students an opportunity to take courses not offered at the high school.
It is important to note that students are responsible for their own transportation to and from the college campus. If a shuttle is available for students, the students will be notified by the first day of school, this is not a guarantee.
Classes are taken on the college campus with other college students. It is college-level work, and the expectations of the high school student will be the same as for the college-level students. Students need to be mature and academically capable of completing college-level work.
Failing a college course will result in the student/parent assuming responsibility for the cost of the course and will impact eligibility and possibly graduation.
Expectations for students
- CCP students must check in and out in the office upon leaving and returning to Harding.
- CCP students to return to Harding when in between courses or on a free rotation will be assigned a study hall in the library. If students are in the building they should be in their assigned study hall. Loitering will not be permitted in halls or offices.
- CCP students who return to Harding should consume outside food and beverages prior to returning unless the situation cannot be avoided.
