Admission Requirements

CCP Admission Requirements for 2024-25:
The Ohio State Academy program has a selective admission process in which students are considered for admission based on their academic performance. Students applying for admission to the Academy program at Ohio State ATI in Wooster can be admitted based on test-optional criteria or standardized testing, as follows:

Test-Optional Admission

Students without a standardized test should meet the following criteria:
  • Unweighted high school academic GPA of 3.0 or higher (on a 4.0 scale, not including non-academic classes)

  • 2 years each of high school English and math

Note: OSU placement testing may also be required of admitted students prior to CCP Orientation and scheduling.


Standardized Test Admission

Students who do not meet the test-optional criteria ABOVE can be admitted based on meeting standardized test scores in English, reading, and mathematics:
  • ACT scores of 18 in English, 22 in Reading, and 22 in Mathematics.

  • SAT scores of 480 in Evidence Based Reading & Writing, and 530 in Math.

  • ACCUPLACER scores of 263 in Writing, 250 in Reading, and 263 in Math.

Notes about Testing:

  • Students who do not meet the test-optional admission criteria can be admitted based on meeting standardized test scores in English, reading, and mathematics.
  • You can submit ACT, SAT, or ACCUPLACER scores for review, if desired.
  • Students admitted without test scores will be required to complete English and math placement tests prior to course scheduling, which may impact the students’ course eligibility. (For example, you might be admitted without restrictions yet not be able to test into college-level English or math during placement testing. Remedial level courses are not covered by CCP funding.)
  • Placement testing is completed after admission, during orientation, using an Ohio State placement test, not the ACCUPLACER test.

Details about ACCUPLACER testing:

If you plan to include ACCUPLACER test scores in your application, you must first apply for CCP admission and submit your high school transcripts to Ohio State before ACCCUPLACER testing can be approved.

Once you are approved for ACCUPLACER testing (if it is necessary in your application):

  • Contact the Ohio State ATI testing center at (330) 287-1258 if you have taken no standardized tests previously, OR
  • Contact the OSU Mansfield testing center at (419) 755-4133 (or online at if you have already taken an ACT, SAT, or ACCUPLACER test.
  • Reminder: your CCP application and transcripts must be received by Ohio State before ACCUPLACER testing can be authorized.

We cannot accept ACCUPLACER test results from any institution other than The Ohio State University.

Ohio State does not use the ACCUPLACER test for course placement.
