Taking Full Advantage of College Courses That Are Guaranteed to Transfer

Having a strong background in mathematics, Nardy wanted to get credit for material she already knew.  When she first enrolled at Strayer University, a StraighterLine Partner College, she was told her existing credits wouldn’t transfer.

That’s when her advisor suggested she should try StraighterLine and explained how StraighterLine’s ultra affordable general education courses are guaranteed to transfer into her program at Strayer.

Getting a Degree As Soon As Possible

“I wanted to get my degree as soon as I could. I went online and looked at the classes [at Straighterline] and signed up. I was able to complete 6 courses in one month!" "And over the next months, I’ve been able to complete and transfer 12 StraighterLine courses into my accounting degree program at Strayer.”

Helping Friends Save a Ton of Money & Time on a College Degree

“StraighterLine is amazing. I’m saving a ton of money and time.” As a result of her ability to easily complete and transfer courses, Nardy has become a huge advocate of StraighterLine. She wants to help her friends and other students at her university to save as much time and money on their degree as she has. “I tell my friends, you should really take these [StraighterLine] classes to save money and graduate as soon as possible.” Her friends are heeding her advice. Currently one is taking StraighterLine’s Intro to Psychology, another is enrolled in English Composition I, and another still is enrolled in Intro to Criminal Justice.
