Postsecondary Enrollment/College Credit Plus
Hiram College offers flexible plans for Northeast Ohio high school students who wish to earn college credit.
Through College Credit Plus, college-bound students will have the opportunity to dual enroll in flexible 15 and 30 credit hour plans at Hiram College. This program will replace PSEO programs beginning in the 2015-16 academic year, and our curricular breadth will allow us to meet the individual needs and interests of partner districts. We seek to help school districts and private schools in Portage, Cuyahoga, Summit, Geauga and Trumbull counties fulfill requirements of Ohio HB 487.
Hiram College can partner with high schools in the following ways:
- Our faculty can offer college courses at your high school campus.
- Qualified high school teachers can offer approved Hiram College courses at your high school.
- Students can attend chosen courses at Hiram College.
Why dual enroll?
- Courses are at no cost to the student and can be taken for dual credit.
- Decreased cost of college tuition, given transferability of credit.
- Doesn’t require a high stakes AP exam.
Why partner with Hiram?
Students can expect one-on-one attention from our faculty. Our staff will work with each high school student to create a personalized schedule that fits his or her academic interests and goals.
We make our on-campus resources available to high school students, opening doors for professional development, collaboration and shared academic resources.
We understand the unique extracurricular needs of high school students, and we are committed to offering courses on our campus in subject areas and at times that will mesh with a high school student’s interests and schedule.
Students can take classes to fulfill general education classes at most institutions. They can also begin to explore a variety of discipline-specific areas.
