Wright1 Card (University ID)

College Credit Plus students who are taking classes on campus should have the Wright1 Card. Your Wright1 Card is a library card, door access card for classrooms, prepaid debit card (RaiderCash), dining plan card, and photo ID. Students receive their first ID card free. (Lost cards are $20 to replace.)

To obtain a Wright1 Card, students must have a valid, government-issued ID: a driver's license, passport, or state ID. A state ID can be obtained at the BMV with a birth certificate and social security card. For more information on how to get and manage a Wright1 Card, please visit the Wright1 Card website.

Costs for Students

  • The participant’s secondary school shall pay for textbooks, and the college shall waive payment of all other course-specific fees or fees related to participation in the course. Non-public and homeschool families must apply for funding through the Ohio Department of Education
  • If the student withdraws or does not attain a passing grade for the course, his/her school district may require reimbursement for the amount paid to the college.
  • Students must observe all deadlines and procedures for registering and withdrawing from college courses to avoid additional costs.

Benefits and Risks

College Credit Plus (CCP) has benefits:

  • It allows students to earn high school and transcripted college credits simultaneously.
  • Students can complete general education college requirements prior to high school graduation. These are transferable according to the Transfer Assurance Guide (TAG) and Ohio Transfer 36 guidelines.
  • A CCP student’s college career begins and ends sooner.
  • The time to complete a college degree is shortened.
  • The program reduces the overall cost of post-secondary education for participating students.
  • CCP introduces the rigor and expectations of college work, helps students achieve college readiness, and makes the transition to college from high school easier.

But it also has risks:

  • Although TAG/Ohio Transfer 36 courses are guaranteed transfer to Ohio Public Institutions of Higher Education with a grade of D or better, how they transfer may differ depending on the major. Students are advised to first take the general education courses that should transfer anywhere.
  • College transfer credits earned through CCP are generally accepted by most major institutions, but may not transfer to private or out-of-state institutions.
  • Students should be aware that grades received through CCP will become part of their high school transcript and college transcripts, affecting their respective grade point averages (GPAs). A permanent college transcript is initiated with your CCP participation and your grades follow you for life. Low grades may negatively impact potential college admissions and future financial aid opportunities.
  • Students who withdraw from or do not pass a course may be responsible to their school for the cost of the course.
  • Even though you will not be using financial aid for CCP classes, you may need or want financial aid to complete your college degree, and the decisions you make now could impact your future financial aid eligibility.
  • Financial aid eligibility requires degree completion within a set time frame, completion of most classes attempted, with an earned grade of C or better in most courses.
  • Withdrawal from a CCP course may negatively affect college financial aid eligibility in the future. See Impact of Student Grades and Decisions to Withdraw.
  • If you earn less than a C average in your college classes, you may not be immediately eligible for financial aid when you enter college after high school to complete your degree.
  • Speak with your guidance counselor to learn more about your high school's CCP dismissal policies.
