Best Place to Take Your General Education CoursesBy Brittany Hege

Math. Not everyone likes it, but one thing’s for sure, everyone has to endure at least one college semester of it. Avoid twiddling your thumbs in front of your professor and take your required college courses with StraighterLine. In fact, you’ll avoid the professor all together with StraighterLine online. No old man rambling on about his beloved T-bird, no too-close-for-comfort coffee breath filled chitchats, and no waiting to be dismissed to get your grilled cheese fix. (Mmmm. Grilled cheese.)

Okay, so maybe you don’t mind the professor (if so, check out StraighterLine’s ProfessorDirect), but what about that heaping pile of student loans aka the elephant in the room? No one in their right mind would wish that on their worst enemy!

Luckily, StraighterLine has a solution to that age-old problem. We offer introductory college courses starting at $49 when you sign-up for a $99 per month subscription. I mean come on, that’s pretty darn inexpensive, fit for most everyone’s budget.

So, you could take online General Calculus I (one of StraighterLine’s most popular courses) for only $59. That’s a whole lot of Functions & Graphs, Limits & Continuity, and Antiderivatives to grasp on the cheap. And if you’re having trouble wrapping your brain around these concepts, your subscription comes with 10 hours of Free General Calculus I Tutoring Help. Fan-spanking-tastic! (Not to mention more than 70 free online calculus “How-To” videos right here.)

With all these savings, you may be asking yourself, “What the heck am I to do with all this extra cash?” You could buy all the grilled cheeses your heart (and coronary arteries) can take...or put it toward your child’s tuition, because we all know how expensive that’s going to be, inevitably. They didn’t come up with the Gerber Life College Plan for nothing!

And just in case you’ve already gotten your math credits out of the way, you can sign up for our other online general education courses for just $49 each, including General Chemistry I online, Introduction to Psychology, English Composition I, and oodles of other required college courses. The list is pretty comprehensive, so why go anywhere else other than StraighterLine for your learning needs? You don’t even have to brush your hair or teeth or get out of your comfy bed. It’s all online!

Here’s to earning course credit the affordable way, online with StraighterLine, and not knowing what to do with all that saved pocket money! So tell us, students, what do you plan on doing with all that extra cash? If I were me (and I am), I’d create papier-mache cats out of dollar-dollar bills y’all. But, hey, the decision is all yours.
