3365.03 Student may apply for college enrollment.

(A) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a student enrolled in a school district, a community school, a STEM school, or a participating nonpublic school may apply to a college to enroll in it during the student's ninth, tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grade school year under this chapter. For purposes of this division, during the period of an expulsion imposed under division (B) of section 3313.66 of the Revised Code or extended under division (F) of that section, a student is ineligible to apply to enroll in a college under this section, unless the student is admitted to another school district or community school, or a participating nonpublic school. If a student is enrolled in a college under this section at the time the student is expelled under division (B) of section 3313.66 of the Revised Code, the student's status for the remainder of the college term in which the expulsion is imposed shall be determined under section 3365.041 of the Revised Code.

(B) If a college accepts a student who applies under this section, it shall send written notice to the student, the student's school district, community school, STEM school, or nonpublic school, and the superintendent of public instruction within ten days after acceptance. Within ten days after each enrollment for a term, the college shall also send the student, the student's school district, community school, STEM school, or nonpublic school, and the superintendent of public instruction a written notice indicating the courses and hours of enrollment of the student and the option elected by the student under division (A) or (B) of section 3365.04 of the Revised Code for each course.
