Student Consumer Information Course

A guide to implementation in your school


Pursuant to Ohio Administrative Code Section 3332-1-09, effective January 1, 2017, all Ohio students enrolling in a registered Ohio career college or school will be required to complete the online Student Consumer Information Course. See here for full text of the code.

 

Will students still complete the student disclosure form?

No. The online Student Consumer Information Course is replacing the paper student disclosure form which will no longer be required after January 1, 2017.

They’ll attest to understanding the material electronically, and won’t have to sign a paper form.

 

What’s the course like?

The course begins with a 5 minute animated video. Students will then submit a form acknowledging understanding. They’ll be sent a receipt electronically which restates the details found in the video, as well as outlines additional resources.

 

How will students take the course?

Schools can purchase vouchers for their students or students can purchase their own enrollments.

 

Is there a cost for the course?

Yes. In accordance with OAC 3332-1-22.1, the cost assessed for the online disclosure course will be $25. You can assess the $25 cost as a fee on your enrollment agreement.
