College Credit Plus (CCP)

The CCP program at Belmont College is designed to provide college experience for qualified students in grades 7 through 12.  Students will earn both college credit and high school credit with each successfully completed course. CCP will allow students to expand their opportunities, discover new interests, and broaden their vision. Students can take up to 30 credit hours a school year.

  • One college class, with three or more college credits, will equal one Carnegie Unit. This is usually equal to one whole year of a high school class.
  • The student has the option of taking college credits summer, fall, and spring terms. Courses taken in the summer term will count toward the coming high school year.
  • Each college class and the corresponding grade is documented on both high school and college transcripts.
