College Credit Plus

Admission Requirements

Since the student is being admitted to college, certain admission requirements are in place and need to be fulfilled as they would for any other college applicant. The admission requirements are based on students who apply in their senior year of high school in anticipation of entering college the fall semester after their graduation from high school.

At The University of Toledo a student must achieve the following for admission to the College Credit Plus program:

  • Submit a minimum 2.5 cumulative high school GPA and combine it with scores of the test you have taken on this chart to determine scores required by the University.  These scores represent the college readiness benchmarks for students not requiring remedial instruction as stated by The Ohio Board of Regents in the rules of the program.

Students may be required to take placement tests to assist in placing them in courses.  Placement tests are generally required for chemistry, math and foreign languages.

  • All students must submit an official, signed high school transcript.
  • Home school students are required to submit an official, signed and dated transcript of courses taken (and those in progress), related grades and official ACT and/or SAT scores.
  • In instances where an ACT or SAT test has not been taken, the following standardized or competency tests can be substituted for these, however the GPA requirement will remain the same. 
    • The tests that can be utilized if the ACT or SAT has not been taken include:
      • PSAT – a pre SAT test to give students an idea where they will be strong and where there is an opportunity for improvement prior to taking the SAT. 
      • Compass – placement test to determine readiness and level of courses that may be taken.
      • Accuplacer - a suite of tests that quickly, accurately, and efficiently assess reading, writing, math, and computer skills.
    • In case of 7th and 8th grade applicants the student’s GPA and appropriate proof of proficiency will be required, which may be demonstrated by any of the tests above.
  • Students may also be admitted based on a review of high school GPA, end of course examination scores, a writing assessment, a review of previous college work, secondary school teacher recommendations and other data as applicable.
