Dear Provosts, Chief Academic Officers, Superintendents, and Ohio Higher Education Community:


Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) is excited to launch a website called “Overview of ODHE Initiatives: What Your Students Need to Know”!


Students and parents depend on school counselors, academic advisors, and others for guidance in making academic decisions that requires their knowledge and understanding of options available for students and parents.  Ohio has many opportunities for educational access, student success, affordability, credit mobility and recognition, and credential attainment (degree and/or certificate).  As busy schedules fill days, time becomes more precious when it comes to finding the right information with a click of a button.  Have you ever experienced not knowing the name of a program or what acronyms meant?     


The Ohio Department of Higher Education created a website that collects all of the statewide initiatives/programs that students, parents, counselors/advisors should be familiar.  The site is grouped by headings like “Earn College Credential Early,” “Learn about Ohio’s Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Grants,” “Prepare for Postsecondary and Professional Life,” “Strengthen and Challenge Academic Performance,” “Learn about Transferring Credits through Ohio Transfer to Degree Guarantee (T2DG),” and “Learn about Our State Policies.”  Under each heading, links to various statewide initiatives/programs are listed.  The visitors can also look up by initiatives/programs if they know the name.


Please share this great website with any professionals who interact with students and parents.  Check out the website at https://www.ohiohighered.org/educators/initiatives-overview!


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Hope you find this new website to be helpful.
