About StraighterLine

StraighterLine helps students reach their full potential by putting them on a straighter line towards their degree of choice and dream career – on budget and on schedule.

StraighterLine was founded in 2009, by Burck Smith as a solution to the rising costs of college education. Burck set out to discover why prices for online courses were the same or higher than those of face to face courses. Using relationships with colleges, publishers and policymakers that were forged in his 15 years of online higher education experience, Burck created StraighterLine, a way for students to get low-priced – but equal quality – college credit.

StraighterLine students have transferred over 26,000 StraighterLine credits to America’s colleges. In addition to our over 80+ Partner Colleges, over 400 colleges have accepted credit for StraighterLine courses. StraighterLine’s courses are evaluated and recommended by the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT). More than 2,000 colleges and universities consider ACE CREDIT recommendations in determining the applicability of coursework and examination results to their courses and degree programs.
