What I do is offer preparation for college credit examinations that the many accredited colleges and universities recognize.
New York (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
At a time when the average four year public college or university is skyrocketing towards $35,000 a year and schools are charging near $200 a credit, some people are beating the system getting multiple college credits for less than the cost of one. And no, it's not through online courses.
People are saving money and time getting college credits and in some cases graduating early. How is this possible?
To make earning those credits more cost effective, Urbane Academics is currently offering preparation for 5 courses at $99 each.
Through little known secrets that most institutions don't want you to know, earning colleges credits has become easier than ever and to make earning those credits even more cost effective, Urbane Academics is currently offering preparation for 5 courses at $99 each.
In comes Ms. Nzingha West, founder and owner of Urbane Academics. Ms. West, after graduating with a Bachelors of Science degree in Biochemistry in less than three years, pursued a career in education; eventually, she decided it was imperative to teach those that were discouraged by high debt and lack of funds her techniques. Thus, Urbane Academics was formed.
"What I do is offer preparation for college credit examinations that the many accredited colleges and universities recognize." The exam she is referring to is called CLEP (College Level Examination Program), and it is run by the College Board, the same company that offers the SAT and AP examinations.
Over 2,800 colleges accept these exams; most people are unaware that their college or one that they maybe interested probably accepts these credits, normally without any hassles that accompany transfer credits from paid coursework at other schools. "My question to students has always been why spend $800 for a three credit course, when you could spend less than $300, without jumping through circus hoops? This is all about time management and saving money.
Usually when I tell people about what I am offering, they hesitate, because they cannot believe such a program exists, they believe it has to be tedious and hard, and really it doesn't", exclaims a confident Ms. West.
Her courses are affordable, between $169 and $199 dollars, there are no books to buy, with a convenient online class schedule making it easier for those with alternative schedules to participate and earn college credit. Including the ability to help earn credits, Urbane Academics is also equipped to provide college admissions and career consultation.
