”Today, students have exponentially more online and face-to-face learning options available to them,” says Burck Smith, StraighterLine’s CEO. “With this much choice, students can – for maybe the first time in history – affect college prices and quality by voting with their feet. By picking courses and schools that provide the best value for their money and that recognize that learning can take place anywhere. Campus Reps will help students choose.”

Students can take freshman and introductory-level classes and save thousands of dollars earning their college degree. With the voice of Campus Representatives on campuses across the United States students can choose to save money on their college degree instead of graduating in a pile of debt.
StraighterLine is a leader in making a quality college education more affordable. StraighterLine’s programs are a great way to tackle the escalating cost of four-year college tuition and avoid a mountain of student debt.
StraighterLine offers two innovative programs. The “Freshman Year for $999” program is designed to help college students and their families address rampant rising tuition costs of college education. Students can take up to 10 StraighterLine courses for a single fee of $999 and realize savings of more than 90 percent versus the first-year tuition at many colleges. Students can also enroll in a subscription package for $99 a month that allows students who can move the material even faster an opportunity for even greater savings. Both programs include up to 10 hours of one-on-one instructional support.
Students who successfully complete StraighterLine online college courses receive credit when they enroll with any school in our rapidly expanding network of regionally accredited partner colleges and universities. In addition, the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT - www.acenet.edu/acecredit/) has also evaluated and recommended college credit for StraighterLine courses. ACE CREDIT helps students gain access to academic credit at colleges and universities for formal courses and examinations taken in settings outside traditional higher education. StraighterLine also offers a tuition assistance program as a benefit for companies to provide to employees interested in earning their college degree.
