To be eligible to participate in the CCP program, a Letter of Intent must be submitted to the Ohio Department of Education no later than April 1st of the year a student intends to participate. Submitting the letter of intent reserves funding (though funding is not guaranteed for private school students) but does not require the student to participate in the program.
