CCP students are limited on the number of credits they can take. High school credits are called Carnegie Units. The state formula for calculating eligible credits for CCP is the following: take the number of high school only credits the student is taking times 3 and then subtract that number from 30. The answer is the number of credits the student can take via CCP. For example, if a student is taking 6 high school only credits, take 6 X 3 = 18. 30 – 18 = 12. This student can take up to 12 college credits via CCP for the academic year. This includes credits earned from all colleges in the school year. If a student goes over his/her eligible hours, the student will be financially responsible for the additional credits. Summer begins the new academic year, and summer courses are included in the total number of eligible CCP hours.
