Advanced Course Access Grant Program

The purpose of the Advanced Course Access Grant Program is to increase equity in access to advanced courses, including Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and dual-credit courses, for high school students who currently have very limited or no access to advanced courses, through online learning, distance learning, or other evidence-based methods. 

$1,750,000 will be allocated annually. The grant period is anticipated to be two years, from July 1, 2021 to June 30, 2023.

Advanced Course Access programs will support the commitment of the Board of Regents to ensure that all students are prepared for, enrolled in, and supported in completing advanced courses. Please see the guidance regarding Equitable Course Access.
