  • I have already attended orientation at Lake Campus as a College Credit Plus (CCP) student, do I need to attend again?

    No. You will meet with your academic advisor individually. Call 419-586-0300 to make your appointment.

  • If I earned credit through the College Credit Plus (CCP) Program, what do I need to do?

    Congratulations! Earning college credit while in high school can be a valuable thing.

    A final and official transcript must be on file with the admissions office at least 10 days before your orientation session in order for your academic advisor to build your class schedule. In addition, failure to submit final official college transcripts to the admissions will result in a registration hold on your account.

    If you earned college credit through the College Credit Plus (CCP) Program at Wright State University you do not need to do anything additional for your credit earned through Wright State University.
