Office of Admissions

Admitted CCP Students

Thank you for choosing to participate in CCP at Cleveland State University! If you have been accepted to the university, which means you have either received a letter in the mail or have checked your application status on CampusNet, you should expect to receive a packet concerning the following information regarding orientation, course selection and placement exams.


Once admitted, students are required to attend a CCP orientation session to introduce them to Cleveland State and to provide vital information about the program and the University. Information regarding this orientation will be mailed to you.

Course Selection and Registration

The course selection process for CCP students is a collaborative effort between the student, the high school counselor and the Cleveland State CCP advisor. Your high school guidance counselor is required to complete your academic advising plan. Cleveland State is on a semester system that consists of fall and spring semesters, each lasting 15 weeks. You must register for new classes prior to the start of each term that you attend.

Maximum Course Loads

Students are eligible to earn a maximum of 30 credits a year.  The number of credits a student is eligible for each semester is determined by the number of credits they are completing at their high school.  Your high school counselor should be consulted about any additional restrictions.

Placement Examinations:

English and Math: In order to determine the appropriate course level, students who wish to enroll in English and mathematics courses at Cleveland State are required to take the placement exams. Students who meet minimum Cleveland State standardized test requirements may be exempt from taking these placement exams.

Foreign Language: Students who have taken French or Spanish at the high school level, and wish to continue by taking upper level classes in the same language, must take a placement test. Students who have taken any foreign language other than French or Spanish will need to consult with the Modern Language department to determine placement.

Please visit our Placement Testing Office and click on the specific subject on the horizontal bar for information on placement testing. The tests can be completed prior to orientation, but must be completed before scheduling for classes. If you are taking a class for credit at your high school, you do not need to take placement tests.

Course Registration

All Cleveland State University CCP students will meet with a CCP advisor prior to registration. Course registration is done on a space-available basis. CCP students will register for their courses following the main registration period for current Cleveland State students. Details of this process will be provided during orientation.

Academic Standards

CCP students must complete course work with a minimum grade of C (2.0 GPA) or better and maintain an overall 2.0 GPA or better to remain in the program. CCP students in the tenth and eleventh grades with a 2.0 GPA or better will be permitted to continue in the program with permission of their high school guidance counselor.

Student Schedules and Grade Reports

Students have access to their schedules, mid-term grades and final grades via the CampusNet system. Students can log on to CampusNet using their student ID and password. From this system, students can view and print class schedules (in standard and grid form), as well as unofficial transcripts. At the end of each semester, an official transcript will be mailed to the student’s high school counselor.

Thanks again for choosing Cleveland State University; we look forward to serving you!
