Free tuition for an online AP course available for eligible students

When planning next year’s Advance Placement course schedule, keep in mind the Digital AP Tuition Waiver program as an option to provide AP course opportunities for students. Ohio public or private high school students may apply now for a one-time waiver of the fee for an online Advance Placement course through ilearnOhio. To be eligible, students must attend an Ohio high school or be homeschooled with an Ohio school of residence. The home district or school submits the waiver application and agrees that the student will receive credit for successful completion of the course. More information on the program and waiver fee applications can be found here. Waiver requests can be sent now for courses starting in the fall.
