StraighterLine breaks down the financial barrier that prevents hundreds of thousands of adults from beginning their college degree.
(PRWEB) July 26, 2016
In order to help colleges and universities attract and keep highly motivated, self-directed students -- leading education consultancy NobleStream proudly announced that it has welcomed StraighterLine to its portfolio of best-in-class solution providers.
StraighterLine offers students an affordable and convenient way to earn college credit. Every student who transfers to colleges or universities from StraighterLine has successfully completed general education courses—an achievement recognized as the biggest predictor of a student’s future academic persistence and success. Over 90% of StraighterLine students that transfer persist to a degree.
Surveys and analysis by the Pew Research Center have found that college graduates face significantly lower unemployment rates, are markedly more satisfied with their jobs, and 90 percent believe that investing in their higher education was worth it.
“StraighterLine breaks down the financial barrier that prevents hundreds of thousands of adults from beginning their college degree,” commented Howard Weiner, NobleStream’s Managing Partner, whose company helps academic institutions evaluate and implement EdTech solutions that drive student success and organizational growth. “We’re proud to partner with StraighterLine, and look forward to providing Burck and his outstanding team with strategic guidance and consulting support as they connect with more academic institutions across the country – and ultimately help more students fulfill their learning goals, career aims, and earning potential.”
“Since launching StraighterLine, we’ve saved students and taxpayers over $110 million dollars, and our students have transferred over 26,000 credits to colleges nationwide” commented StraighterLine’s CEO Burck Smith. “We’re excited about working with Howard and the NobleStream team, and leveraging their expertise and insight to make high quality, low cost college education a reality for even more students.”
