College Credit Now

The Onondaga College Credit Now (CCN) Program allows high school students to gain a head start on college by earning college credit for select Onondaga courses that are offered by their high school at NO COST. The courses are delivered at their high school as part of their normal school day, and are taught by qualified high school teachers. Courses transfer to many other colleges and universities across NYS and throughout the country. 

CCN students are officially students at Onondaga Community College and may take advantage of the many resources at the college including the Library and tutoring centers. CCN offers more course options than Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. In addition, CCN assesses the work of an entire semester for each student, and is not dependent on one high stakes test.The Onondaga College Now Program meets the very highest of program standards and is nationally accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP),
