Marshall University works collaboratively with the Ohio College Credit Plus Program to provide college courses for students attending the Tri-State STEM+M Early College High School in South Point, Ohio. STEM+M students may enroll in Marshall’s online college courses or courses on Marshall’s Huntington campus. Students wishing to participate in the program must meet Marshall University’s early entry admissions requirements and meet all individual course pre-requisite requirements.

Prior to enrollment, participating students and their parents/guardians must acknowledge that the students are enrolling in college-level courses with college-level content. Course content will not be adapted for high school participants. The subject matter of a course under the college credit plus program may include mature subject matter or materials, including those of a graphic, explicit, violent, or sexual nature, that will not be modified based upon college credit plus enrollee participation regardless of where course instruction occurs.

Upon application and prior to enrollment at Marshall University, high school students from the Tri-State STEM+M Early College High School in South Point, Ohio, who are participating in the Ohio College Credit Plus Program must sign and submit the following documents:

  • STEM+M Permission Slip – including both the student’s signature and a parent/guardian signature acknowledging that Marshall University course content may include mature subject matter that will not be modified based upon College Credit Plus enrollee participation. Student and parent/guardian should complete this form at the time of application.
  • MU STEM+M Questionnaire – signed by the student acknowledging they are socially and emotionally mature enough to participate in the College Credit Plus Program and willingness to accept the responsibility and independence that a college classroom demands. This form will need to be signed by the student and submitted prior to enrollment.

Completed permission slips and questionnaires should be submitted to:
