StraighterLine, a leader in providing low-cost, online general education courses, has partnered with Lynn University to provide convenient degree completion options for college students. As part of this articulation agreement, Lynn will accept StraighterLine’s online college courses for seamless transfer into Lynn students’ degree programs.
Students can choose the courses they need for their degree plan from StraighterLine’s comprehensive catalog of self-paced, general education courses. The partnership with Lynn will enable those students to maximize their transfer credits and complete their degree sooner, which can save them time as well as money.
"We're excited that Lynn University is providing students with the quality, convenience, and affordability that StraighterLine courses offer,” says Burck Smith, Founder and CEO of StraighterLine. “By making it easier to transfer credits from StraighterLine, Lynn is putting the learner first.”
“One of our top priorities is to provide outstanding and affordable higher education for all styles of learning," says Steven Pruitt, Lynn's director of Graduate and iLynn Admission. "This partnership creates another avenue for students who want to complete courses now with the flexibility to earn transfer credits toward a university degree later.”
