StraighterLine: The Best Place to Take Your General Education Courses
By 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 math classes
with StraighterLine. In fact, you’ll avoid the professor all together with StraighterLine online. You get to go at your own pace. No professor rambling on about their beloved T-bird and no waiting to be dismissed to get your grilled cheese fix. (Mmmm. Grilled cheese.)
Okay, so maybe you don’t mind the professor, but what about that heaping pile of student loans aka the elephant in the room? Luckily, StraighterLine has a solution to that age-old problem. We offer introductory college courses starting at $79 with our $99 per month subscription. I mean come on, that’s pretty darn inexpensive, a fit for most everyone’s budget.

So, you could take Calculus I
(one of StraighterLine’s most popular courses) for only $79. That’s a whole lot of Functions & Graphs, Limits & Continuity, and Antiderivatives to grasp on the cheap.

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.
