Great news for home-school families! Ohio’s College Credit Plus gives students in grades 7-12 the chance to earn high school and college credit simultaneously by taking courses at participating Ohio colleges or universities. All public colleges and certain private colleges in Ohio are participating.

Tuition is free if your home-school student takes classes at a public college. There may be modest fees for private college credit. Your family will be responsible for the cost of textbooks.

Ohio has never offered your home-school student a better start on a college education. A College Credit Plus student enjoys the opportunity to pursue more challenging classes and explore college interests sooner. Your child can earn anywhere from a few college credits to more than a year’s worth while still in high school. College Credit Plus can reduce your child’s time in college and greatly reduce your family’s higher education costs.
