“The lack of substantive resource guides available to adult learners prompted the creation of this series,” says Josef Katz, VP Marketing of StraighterLine. “The growth of online education, its skyrocketing popularity among adult learners and the increasing number of providers continues to validate the model. Students should understand how going back to college online works with their lifestyles and what they should expect from the experience.”

StraighterLine’s extremely flexible and affordable online college courses allow students to save up to 90% on their first year of college by helping ease the burden of balancing a busy lifestyle while earning a college degree. Course credits transfer to StraighterLine’s partner colleges and universities or through the ACE Credit service.
