There’s no better cost for college than FREE, right?
You’ve heard us talk about how easy Ohio makes it for high school students to earn college credit for free. And those options just got a little broader.
As of last week, private school and homeschooled students are now eligible to take online college courses through the OhioLearns Gateway. Previously, only public school students were able to receive funding. This opens the door to a new pathway to free college credits.
A limited number of private school students were already eligible for funding to take Post-Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) courses at their local colleges and universities.
This is one more step toward the day when families will be able to choose the combination of courses and settings that work best for their children and have the funding follow them to make it feasible.
We commend our legislature for moving in that equitable and efficient direction. And we encourage you to take a look at these programs to see if they could be a good fit for your child – public or private.
