One-Time Funds, First Come, First Served!
Under the direction of the Ohio Board of Regents, ilearnOhio is offering one-time funds for Ohio public school students who want to enroll in an online Advance Placement course. The tuition-waiver program ends once all the funds have been allocated. First come, first served. For Ohio public students only.
It’s easy to sign a student up! (1) The student and a public school staff member (counselor) search the ilearnOhio catalog for an AP course, and (2) the staff member preregisters the student through ilearnOhio for that course. Approved students receive a one-time tuition-only fee waiver for that course (go to ilearnOhio for the details).
Special note to Race to the Top schools: Here’s a great way to stretch your grant dollars by taking advantage of both the Race to the Top and the Tuition-Waiver programs.
