Students who participate in Ohio's College Credit Plus program must apply to the Hiram College College Credit Plus program. To be considered for participation, students are asked to:

  • Fill out Hiram College's College Credit Plus Application. We accept both hard copy and online applications, although online applications are preferred.
  • Submit an official high school transcript.
  • Submit results from either the ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer.
  • Meet college course prerequisites.

Application and credential review is holistic and there is no single set of fixed criteria that solely determines admissibility to Hiram College. Each admission application and its supporting credentials are carefully read and given individual consideration. Hiram College reserves the right to make the final determination of a student's admissibility to the College.

All application materials should be addressed to:

College Credit Plus
Attention: Brittany Jackson, Assistant Director

Hiram, OH 44234

Completed Application Deadlines:

  • April 15 for summer semester
  • May 15 for fall semester

Students who are accepted would receive high school credit and Hiram College credit for this coursework subject to Hiram's transfer credit policies.

Upon their high school graduation, College Credit Plus students and those from similar programs in other states where high school students enroll in college courses for credit prior to obtaining a high school diploma should apply to Hiram College as a traditional first-year student, not as a transfer student.
