Straighterline...college for 99/month

Recommended Posts

Anyone heard of this? My grandmother sent me this clipping from a newspaper. The idea is that you can take college classes for a flat fee of 99/month . As many classes as you want for a flat fee. They are partnered with accredited universities. Wondered if anyone knows about it. They offer things like Intro Algebra etc. which could be good for highschool kids too.

The problem with Straighterline is spotty transferability of credits.


Here is a link to discussions on Straighterline and college credit on degreeforum.net


This forum has a lot of jargon. TESC is Thomas Edison State College, EC is Excelsior College, FHSU is Fort Hayes. People on this forum are working on AA and BS degrees through credit-by-exam. Thomas Edison, Excelsior, and Charter Oaks are three accredited colleges with no residency requirement. They generally accept credit-by-exam, and ACE recommended credits for ALEKS courses, etc.
