Online Learning for Students & Families
If you are, or have, a student interested in online learning, please see our resources below. They include our FAQs, the Course Catalog, and the Approved Online School Programs list.
Find answers to questions on how to enroll & pay for an online course, attend a program outside your district, transfer credits, and more.
Use our search filter to find an online course. Please get written pre-approval from your district before enrolling in & paying for the course. Also, note each district has its own transfer credit policy and makes its own decisions on which courses are acceptable.
OSPI approves and monitors programs that offer students regular ongoing online learning. These programs may not be entirely online, and students may be expected to participate in non-online courses. The online courses may also have other requirements including in-person or site-based elements.
Members of the advisory committee will assist OSPI by providing advice regarding the approval criteria, major components of the website, the model school district policy, model agreements, and other related matters.
