CCP Frequently Asked Questions

CCP Student at Starbucks

Questions are divided into two sections:

College Credit Plus & Sinclair FAQ's

How do I know what CCP courses I should take?

Students should work with their high school guidance counselor to make sure that they are meeting their requirements for high school graduation.  Sinclair has also developed General Course Pathways to assist students/ families and high school guidance counselors with helping students choose courses that will decrease their time towards degrees in these pathways.  Working with a Sinclair Academic Advisor is recommended for students to ensure they are taking the best course options for their college degree and career goals.

What are the important CCP deadlines that students and their families need to know?

Here you can find Important Deadlines for Sinclair College Registration Periods.

Are CCP students required to participate in a Sinclair Orientation session?

Yes. All NEW CCP students will participate in an orientation session prior to the start of their first semester. CCP students taking courses on campus will be invited to an in-person orientation session. In-person orientation is strongly suggested for students taking courses on campus. Students taking courses online or in their high schools may attend in-person orientation or may choose to complete the online orientation.

What happens if my Sinclair GPA falls below a 2.0?

How do I withdraw from a CCP course?

Students who wish to withdraw from a course have two important deadlines to be aware of:

  • CCP Students have 14 calendar days after courses begin to withdraw from a course without any record or penalty.
  • After the 14 day withdraw period has passed students may withdraw before the Withdraw Deadline and receive a “W” on their transcript (See the link in the Deadlines question above for these exact dates).  Students may also be required to reimburse the school districts for the cost of the course, see your high school counselor for more information. 
  • After the Drop Deadline, students who withdraw from a course will receive a grade of “F” on their college and high school transcript. 
  • Students who receive a W may retake the course using CCP funds.

Students may withdraw from a course via their my.sinclair account through the WebAdvisor link or in person at any Sinclair campus.  PLEASE NOTE:  Students should notify their High School Guidance Counselor IMMEDIATELY upon withdrawal of any CCP course.
