Meet one of the following three:
 
1. Ohio's State Tests - Students earn a cumulative passing score of 18 points, using seven end-of-course state tests.  To ensure students are well rounded, they must earn a minimum of four point in math, four points in English and six points across science and social studies.
 
End-of-course exams are:
  •    Algebra I and geometry or integrated math I and II
  •    Biology
  •    American History and American Government
  •    English I and English II
Students studying Advanced Placement courses in biology, American history or American government may take and substitute test scores for end-of-course state exams to avoid double testing. Students also may substitute grades from College Credit Plus courses in these science and social studies subjects for end-of-course state exams.
 
2.  Industry credential and workforce readiness - students earn 12 points through a State Board of Education-approved, industry-recognized credential or group of credentials in a single career field and achieve a workforce readiness score on the WorkKeys assessment. The state of Ohio will pay one time for those who take the WorkKeys assessment.
 
3.  College admission test - Students earn "remediation-free"scores in English language arts and mathematics on a nationally recognized college admission exam.  The state of Ohio will pay one time for all 11th grade students in the classes of 2018 and beyond to take the exam free of charge.
