3301-44-02 Statement of purpose.

The purpose of the rules in this chapter is to prescribe conditions governing the post-secondary enrollment options program under section 3365.02 of the Revised Code, which provides that a student who is a resident of this state in grades nine, ten, eleven, and twelve may enroll at a college, on a full- or part-time basis, and complete nonsectarian courses for high school and college credit.

The program is intended to provide expanded opportunities for appropriately qualified high school students to experience coursework at the college or university level. Any high school student admitted to a course by a collegewill be expected and required to perform at the same level as the college'segular students. High schools continue to be responsible for providing a comprehensive and challenging college preparatory curriculum, including advanced placement and other advanced level courses, for their students. College courses should either contribute to or supplement the broad academic preparation needed by high school students. Credit for highly specialized content college courses generally should not substitute for important broader content college preparatory courses.
