Carrollton offers an Associate of Arts Degree Pathway for students who are interested in taking the required CCP courses to complete this degree upon graduation. Please see the Programs of Study or view the full Associate Degree Pathway here.

Students who receive an F or withdraw from a College Credit Plus course after the 14th day of the college semester, will be required to pay for the course and the book fee. Failing a college course may cause the student to not be allowed to take further college classes (CCP Probation and Dismissal Policy). Grades become part of the high school grade point average. All books purchased for College Credit Plus belong to Carrollton Exempted Village Schools and must be turned in to the Carrollton High School Counseling Office when the course is complete or dropped.
