Looking to get a year's worth of college credit, save money and try classes for free? You have a number of options, including StraighterLine online college courses.
Here's how StraighterLine stacks up against MOOCs like ASU's/EdX Global Freshman Academy:
You pay less for your online courses with StraighterLine
StraighterLine’s First Year bundle, allows students to take ten 3 & 4 credit courses and pay only $1,299. That’s one full year of college credit (10 courses) for just under $1,300! On the other hand, taking 10 courses to earn credit through the EdX Global Freshman Academy is $6,000. Taking your first year of college courses (10 courses) through StraighterLine costs thousands less and offers you more college options.
You get access to qualified academic support
Students succeed at much higher rates when they have access to academic support through mentors, academic advisors, and tutoring. You can’t get that kind of support through MOOCS like EdX. That’s not how “free” MOOCS are set up - but fortunately you automatically get full academic support for any general education course you take through StraighterLine, including on-demand one-on-one tutoring and professional academic advising.
You can enroll at ASU with ACE CREDIT Recommended courses
If you plan on enrolling at ASU, we can help! StraighterLine students have reported that ASU takes StraighterLine courses. All StraighterLine courses have received ACE CREDIT recommendations.

Fortunately, StraighterLine offers you a credit transfer guarantee to nearly 100 accredited colleges and universities, so you can graduate from the school you want for a fraction of the price.
