2.5 Advanced Standing Programs (formerly Dual Enrollment)

Ohio’s new College Credit Plus program give students an opportunity to earn college credit while simultaneously earning high school credit. There are important deadlines for participation and specific documents to complete to enroll.

The Ohio Department of Education’s Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate Fee Reimbursement Program provides financial support for students from low-income families taking Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exams. Through a federal grant, the Ohio Department of Education aims to open accessibility, increase participation of low-income students in academically rigorous coursework in public and nonpublic schools and narrow the economic achievement gap. The AP/IB Test Fee program assists school districts with high numbers of minority and low-income students to transform their high schools into educational institutions where all students can be successful and prepared for a global economy and postsecondary education or certification. During the past eight years of the fee waiver program, Ohio has seen an increase in the number of students completing science, English, social sciences, computer and math Advanced Placement coursework and assessments. The Ohio Department of Education is committed to expanding Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate opportunities equitably with an emphasis on addressing the needs of students from low-income families.
