Education is still the key to success and higher earnings, according to recent data. But, for millions of Americans, the path to college graduation is anything but straightforward. Just 58% of students who started college in the fall of 2012 had earned a degree six years later, says the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center. In addition to rising tuition costs, students cite juggling jobs and external commitments, unknowingly not earning enough credits, and getting stuck in remedial courses as reasons they will not graduate on time.
What if there were a way for you to overcome these hurdles and easily, affordably, and conveniently make progress on your educational goals? StraighterLine has helped more than 125,000 students from diverse backgrounds meet a variety of higher ed goals. With fully-online courses starting at just $59, with a $99 monthly membership (and free eTextbooks), students can learn at their own pace without taking on debt.
