How it works


Meet with an advisor

After you fill out a form, you'll meet with an advisor to go over things like schedule, budget, degree choice, lifestyle and more.


Get degree options

Advisors comb through thousands of degree options to provide you with the best options for cost savings and time to completion plans for a handful of programs that meet your needs.


Choose your program

You'll be empowered with choices for less expensive, and quicker degrees (or courses) from the schools you choose.


Receive ongoing support

Your advisors will be there at each step of the journey to provide ongoing support to achieve your educational goals!

Go further with a college degree.

We'll help you take online, self-directed college courses before enrolling in a college, saving you both time and money on your degree. By aligning the courses you take through us to your school’s transfer credit policy, we can guarantee the credit you earn will be accepted by the college you want to graduate from.
