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

2017 COURSES & SCHEDULES

BOOKS

CCP at TU and CCP Online students are responsible for picking up their books before each semester/term. Students can either make arrangements with the College Credit Plus Advisor to pick up their books at Tiffin University or their guidance counselor when the College Credit Plus Advisor delivers that books to the student's high school.

For CCP students, University covers the expense of books and supplemental fees; excluding music fees for private lessons. If a student enrolls in a private music instruction course, the School District must advise all students that it is the student’s responsibility to cover the fee for private music instruction associated with the course. The School District must advise students that the music fee for private music lessons will be charged directly to the student’s account. University provides CCP students a set of books at the beginning of each semester based on their schedule.  The School District must ensure that the students return all books provided by the University to the College Credit Plus Advisor one week after the end of the semester.  The School District must advise that if books are lost, stolen, damaged, or not returned to University, it is the student’s responsibility to replace the books required for each course. The School District must advise students that students will be held responsible for full cost of the replacement book(s).  The School District must advise students that the cost to purchase a replacement book through the University's Bookstore will be charged to the student's account as a result of the book not being returned to University.  The School District must advise that if a student has a balance on their University account, that student will not be able to request an official transcript.

WITHDRAWING FROM TU CLASSES

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.
