Students who are admitted into the program can enroll into a wide range of undergraduate courses. Generally, we recommend Academy students enroll in courses that will meet General Education (GE) Requirements for their intended college major.
Students wishing to earn credit that may transfer to another college or university should contact their desired college for information on the transfer process at that institution.
Course Limits and Maximum Hours
Students need to meet the prerequisite (courses that contain base knowledge for other courses in the discipline) for courses. There may also be scheduling constraints – the class may not be offered at a time that works with an Academy student’s schedule, or the class may already be full.
College Credit Plus will allow students to earn a maximum of 30 semester hours in a year (summer, autumn and spring semesters). This may be a combination of both high school and college courses, or just college courses. Students will need to work with their high school counselor or principal to determine their eligibility.
All Academy students will have an academic advisor to help with course selection and scheduling. You will meet your advisor at your Academy Orientation, which will occur shortly before the start of your first term at Ohio State. Your advisor will provide guidance on possible courses, connect you with the resources of the university, and help you make the transition in to Ohio State.
Priority Scheduling: Ohio State has a priority scheduling process that allows students to enrolled based on their rank at the university. College Credit Plus students will schedule at the end of the advising process. We encourage students to explore a wide range of class options to ensure course availability.
