Schedules can be found online on TU’s online portal, MyDragon, under the “Student Services” tab.  Click the drop down menu, choose “Schedules & Bulletins” then “Undergraduate Course Schedules” at the top of the screen. Students must meet any prerequisites and will need a TU username and password to access this information.
  2. CCP Online: Students virtually participate in TU classes, asynchronously, online with other Tiffin University students, including traditional, college-age students, adult students, and other CCP students. All TU Online courses are 7-weeks. Students may not take more than 2 online courses per term. Students may choose courses from TU’s Academic Bulletin. Students may choose any course for which they meet the prerequisite.
  3. CCP at the High School: Students remain in their high school and one of Tiffin University’s faculty or adjunct professors go to the high school to teach the TU course. Students take college courses without leaving their high school! CCP at the High School is available at select high schools and by pre-arrangement only. Students should ask their guidance counselor or contact TU's Director of Special Academic Programs if they are unsure if CCP at the High School is an option for them

WITHDRAWING FROM TU CLASSES SUMMER/FALL 2016

If a student no longer wants to participate in the CCP Program before the TU course has ended or must withdraw from a TU course for other reasons, he or she must email the CCP Advisor {ccp@tiffin.edu} with a request to be withdrawn from the course. This must be done within a two week period of the term or semester starting.

Students' failure to request withdrawal from a TU course before the set deadline may be charged by their school district to repay any fees incurred by the district for the withdrawn course.

If the student withdraws from a TU course that was intended to fulfill a high school graduation requirement, it is the student's responsibility to meet with his or her high school guidance counselor to develop a new course schedule. While always willing to assist students, Tiffin University is not responsible for meeting students' high school graduation requirements.
