Program Eligibility


Due to COVID-19 the State of Ohio has made policy changes for the CCP Program.  Students for the 20-21 school year may be eligible for CCP with a 3.0 or higher GPA.  Students will be course eligible based on high school completed coursework.  Those students who need to complete testing will be notified via regular mail and email.  If you are not sure if you need testing, please contact your CCP Coordinator or the CCP Office at

Sinclair Placement Testing is NOW AVAILABLE Remotely.

Remote testing is available to CCP students who have a fully processed application and a Sinclair ID number.  You must have your Sinclair ID number and username to take the placement tests.  Please make sure you have these with you when you schedule your testing appointment.

  • The CCP program is for Ohio Residents. Ohio residents who intend to participate in CCP must file a Letter of Intent with their local school district/or the State of Ohio Higher Education each year.

  • Students who are not Ohio Residents are not eligible for the CCP Program. Though non-Ohio Residents cannot participate or receive funding, they may be able to enroll in college courses at the applicable non-resident or international tuition rate. Contact the CCP Office for details.

  • Students who are eligible for the CCP Program are funded for a specific number of credit hours as determined by a state-provided formula. The families of students who register for additional credit hours are responsible for tuition and fees incurred by students who exceed the approved number of credit hours.

Academic Eligibility

Due to COVID-19 Sinclair's testing centers have temporarily closed. We understand placement testing is a CCP requirement and are working to find a solution for our CCP students. Once we receive state guidance on how to move forward we will create a plan and notify all of our students who do not have a placement test on file. If you have any questions please check the FAQ's for CCP students at If you have more questions after reading the FAQ's contact the CCP office by emailing your CCP Coordinator or our general inbox at Thank you for your patience as we navigate how to best serve our students during this time.
