Life as an Academy Student

What happens once you are admitted to the Academy Program?

Once you are admitted you will receive information about orientation and class scheduling. This will come directly from the specific campus you will attend. 

You will meet your academic advisor during Orientation. You'll learn how to use online resources for course scheduling, important dates for the semester, and how to navigate the campus. 

Ohio State has a priority scheduling process. Priority is given to students based on their rank at Ohio State. Seniors schedule first, followed by juniors, etc. Since CCP students have not yet graduated from high school, their priority falls after Ohio State freshmen.
