StraighterLine, the low-cost online college course provider, today released the guide "Going Back to School: 2015 Guide to Getting Your College Degree" to equip adult learners returning to school with everything they need to know to prepare for their journey to a college degree.

Key takeaways from the guide include:
- The benefits of getting a college degree.
- Top ways to save on your college degree before enrolling.
- How an online education can make a degree possible.
"College tuition has risen four times the rate of inflation while most family’s resources have declined," says Burck Smith, StraighterLine's founder and CEO. "StraighterLine was built to fix that. Our college savings network lets students spend up to 60% less, get real academic credit, and receive the same degree they would have otherwise."
