Franklin University is proud to announce it has been awarded a grant in the amount of $885,000 from the Ohio Department of Education and Department of Higher Education.
The grant provides funding to help high school faculty in Ohio receive the qualifications required to teach College Credit Plus courses, a statewide program that allows seventh-through-12th grade students to earn high school and college credit at the same time.
Graduate coursework will be available through Franklin and Urbana universities in partnership with Columbus State Community College and the Educational Services Center of Central Ohio.
The online, graduate coursework fulfills College Credit Plus program requirements at no tuition cost to high school faculty through 2017 and reduced tuition through 2020. In addition, related coursework books will be available at a flat fee of $60 per credit hour.
Participating high school faculty will begin taking courses at Franklin University and Urbana University beginning this month. When their training has been completed, this group of high school faculty will be able to teach college-level courses in their high school classrooms.
