Learn about the program and why you should enroll
The College Credit Now (CCN) program lets high school students earn college credits, strengthen their college applications, and explore potential career paths prior to graduation. Although the courses offered through CCN are as rigorous as regular college-level courses, they're offered at no cost to the student. Plus, students who take CCN courses typically graduate with their two or four-year degree early, which saves them time and money.
CCN is accredited through the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP). The CCN program has been accredited by the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) since 2005, completing a reaccreditation cycle most recently in 2020.
NACEP ensures that college courses offered by high school teachers are as rigorous as those offered on the sponsoring college campus.
NACEP helps these programs adhere to the highest standards, so students experience a seamless transition to college, and teachers benefit from meaningful, ongoing professional development.

OCC is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, so our credits are transferable to private and public institutions. It ultimately depends on the specific degree program that the student is transferring into and it’s recommended that students reach out to the college/university they are interested in to learn about how the credits they take through OCC can apply to the degree program they are pursuing.
By enrolling in a CCN course, you are beginning your college transcript. Choosing to take a college course in high school is a big responsibility and should be treated as such. Withdrawing or failing multiple courses in high school could negatively impact a student’s financial aid when coming to college.
Students and alumni are able to request transcripts via our Parchment Storefront or in person# at Student Central.
Through OCC’s partnership with Parchment, we are able to provide electronic transcripts that can be delivered instantly to the recipient* or through traditional mail directly from the Parchment warehouse, usually delivered in 2-3 business days. There is also still the option to pick up your transcript in person at Student Central.
