  2. Fill out Hiram College’s College Credit Plus Application.
  3. Submit an official high school transcript, and CCP Permission Form.
  4. Submit results from either the ACT or SAT (preferred).  *We will also accept the Accuplacer, or Compass tests for CCP applications only. If the student’s GPA is above a 3.0, test scores are not required. If the GPA is below 3.0 and above 2.8, test scores are required. To learn about the minimum test scores, reference to this document Student Eligibility.
  • A recommendation is not required, but Hiram reserves the right to request a recommendation for all CCP applicants from a guidance counselor or teacher.
  • Meet college course pre-requisites.  This may include placement exams, specifically for foreign language and math courses.

All application materials should be addressed to:

Admission Office

On campus Accuplacer Testing

*Hiram College offers the Accuplacer Next-Generation Writing and Reading test for students who have not taken the ACT or SAT exam, free of charge (any subsequent tests through us will result in a $10 charge). To schedule and register for your Accuplacer test at Hiram College, please email

Accuplacer testing is available by appointment (students without an appointment will not be able to take the test).  

Students applying for CCP need to meet the state minimums in at least one subject area of the assessment tests (click here for minimum scores: Student Eligibility). We also recommend if you are considering taking a Biology or Chemistry course through Hiram College, that you score a 22 or higher on the Science section of the ACT. Hiram College reserves the right to make the final determination of a student’s admissibility to the College.

Students interested in taking CCP math courses at their high school or on campus/online need to also take Hiram’s math placement exam. The deadline to take the math placement exam is August 11th, 2023 for the Fall 2023 semester. Without a passing score the student will not be registered in any math course through Hiram. 

Notification of Acceptance

Once a high school student has been admitted and has completed the CCP questionnaire, that student is eligible to enroll in courses at Hiram College. The Admission Office will notify the student, parent, and high school through the application portal. An electronic letter will also be available at the application portal to students who are denied admission into the program.

Students MUST complete the CCP Required Form before enrolling into CCP. Students that do not complete the required form and questionnaire will not be registered for courses with Hiram. 

Prior to Admission, should the family want to visit Hiram, students should contact Hiram College’s Admission Office to schedule a visit to campus (1.800.362.5280 or check our visits website.)
