For the eighth consecutive year, the Sinclair College Board of Trustees is reducing textbook costs for high schools participating in College Credit Plus (CCP). The Trustees approved $350,000 in price reductions for its 142 CCP partner high schools.
CCP is Ohio’s dual-enrollment program giving students in grades 7-12 the opportunity to take college courses for free and earn high school and college credit before graduating high school. CCP provides high school students the option to choose from a wide-range of courses and programs in both a career and technical field of study that prepares them for in-demand jobs, as well as general education courses that can be transferred to a four-year university.
“One of the most significant costs impacting school districts is textbooks and, in an effort to lessen that burden for our CCP partners, Sinclair’s Board of Trustees proudly approved this funding,” said Amy Barker, Chair – Sinclair College Board of Trustees. “Through exceptional financial management, Sinclair College is able to continue offering these cost savings to our CCP partners. In addition, Sinclair is continuing to offer CCP tuition rates at the lowest level allowed under state regulations.”
More than 8,100 students enrolled in CCP at Sinclair for the 2020-2021 school year and earned 61,000 credit hours. An estimated $10.1 million in future tuition and book expenses was saved by Miami Valley families through Sinclair’s CCP Program.
In May, a record 53 CCP participants graduated with Sinclair associate degrees while still in high school. That was a 12% increase over the previous year.
