Today’s post is the fourth in a series of practical tips on how to save money on college.

Today’s saving money on college tip is:

Take your summer college classes online.

When you create a degree plan that includes taking your summer college classes online, you will be able to affordably earn college credit for the prerequisites or general education courses required for your degree program. No only do you benefit from the low cost structure of online college courses (cheap college credit!), you also benefit from StraighterLine's mission to make the online experience for these courses even better than what traditional colleges offer. Online, you can start taking low price summer classes for as little as $99 per month through StraighterLine and earn fully transferrable college credit.

"When you enroll in college courses you can take for credit online that are equal to or above the required standards at on-campus colleges and universities, you can save thousands towards your degree and get the best possible learning experience."

When you enroll in college courses you can take for credit online that are equal to or above the required standards at on-campus colleges and universities, you can save thousands towards your degree and get the best possible learning experience. By taking your courses online in summer (or any other season), it's easy to see how much you save when you factor that the average annual cost of tuition, room, and board is $14,300 at a public institution and $37,800 at private ones, according to the most recent data from the National Center for Education Statistics.
