With these new courses, StraighterLine gives students even more ways to start college and save money on their early college experience.
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) January 12, 2012
StraighterLine (StraighterLine.com) announced today the launch of two new online college courses, bringing the total number offered by the company to thirty-three. These courses, like the thirty-one before them, received full recommendation from the American Council on Education’s Credit Recommendation service. Also, all StraighterLine courses exceed industry standards for identity verification.
The new courses are: United States History I and Student Success. U.S. History I joins the StraighterLine curriculum as the most requested new course in Straighterline’s history, and is the latest addition to the new Humanities Department. Student Success was created to help first time college students prepare themselves up for a successful college career. These courses provide additional options to students who are looking to complete their core curriculum courses on their own schedule. Both are being offered under StraighterLine’s standard pricing plans and can be started the same day a student enrolls.
