However, students that are considered economically disadvantaged CANNOT be asked to reimburse CCP costs.

(b) There is a potential cost of participation with a nonpublic/private institution of higher education. Private colleges/universities have the option of charging a minimal fee to students.

(c) Students who are economically disadvantaged cannot be charged for anything related to College Credit Plus. This includes students who choose to attend a nonpublic institution of higher education; they cannot be charged a minimum fee. See Ohio Administrative Code 3333-1-65.6(2) for details and the definition of economically disadvantaged.
