StraighterLine provides students with a new option for taking required college courses online.
In Company’s Own Words:
StraighterLine courses are real college level courses that receive real credit from accredited universities.
StraighterLine courses are recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE).
Most colleges will accept ACE recommended courses for credit. Check with the college in which you would like to eventually enroll.
Or, you can save the ACE fee and choose one of StraighterLine’s partner colleges who have agreed to award credit for StraighterLine courses directly.
How It Works:
StraighterLine offers two innovative programs. The “Freshman Year for $999” program is designed to help college students and their families address rampant rising tuition costs of college education.
Students can take up to 10 StraighterLine courses for a single fee of $999 and realize savings of more than 90% versus the first-year tuition at many colleges.
Students can also enroll in a subscription package of online college courses for $99 a month that allows students who can move the material even faster an opportunity for even greater savings. Both programs includes up to 10 hours of one-on-one instructional support.
Students who successfully complete StraighterLine online college courses receive credit when they enroll with any school in our rapidly expanding network of regionally accredited partner colleges and universities.
Best Part Is:
All StraighterLine courses come associated with textbooks that have e-book, new, used and even rental options, allowing students to save up to 90% on the cost of a book.
Students may purchase the book in any form but should purchase the exact version of the text (identified by ISBN) to ensure the best course experience.
You can purchase either an ebook or a physical textbook by going to: http://www.straighterline.com/textbooks.
Textbooks required for each course can be found in the course syllabus posted in each online classroom.
To get a textbook, you’ll need to access the StraighterLine textbook search and comparison resource or by searching the WWW independently.
The book search resource is available at http://www.straighterline.com/textbooks.
