Ohio’s College Credit Plus can help you earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities. The purpose of this program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wide variety of options to college-ready students. Taking a college course from a public college or university is free. That means no cost for tuition, books or fees. If you choose to attend a private college or university, you may have limited costs. 

St. Mary Central Catholic has an agreement with Bowling Green State University; however, you can choose to take College Credit Plus courses from any college that offers a course that would benefit your future. This could include online courses.
