...Given the cost savings at such a reputable school as CSU-Global, that’s a done deal in my mind. I’m in.
GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. (PRWEB) September 19, 2018
In its ongoing commitment to make college more affordable and accessible, Colorado State University-Global Campus has partnered with OnlineDegree.com to help bridge more working adults back to higher education. The partnership will enable students to take certain general education courses offered at OnlineDegree.com that could apply toward their degree at CSU-Global. Tuition-free.
OnlineDegree.com is a non-collegiate platform that prepares working adults for higher education and helps them receive college credit in the process…completely, free. Students can take a variety of general education courses to learn about psychology, computer programming, history, marketing, robotics, and much more -- all online and at their own pace. OnlineDegree.com works with participating accredited universities where transfer credit can be awarded for successful completion of the courses. This provides students with a simple process to begin their education, and gives them a multitude of options to potentially receive free college credit nationwide.
“Our goal is to help working adults take that first critical step to go back to school,” says Grant Aldrich, CEO of OnlineDegree.com. “By removing known hurdles that often prevent someone from pursuing their education, we’re helping to improve higher education’s accessibility and keep students across the country on a collegiate-path.”
CSU-Global is already a known leader in accessibility, becoming the first independent, fully accredited, 100% online state university in the U.S. in 2007. With over 28 degrees and accelerated programs, the academic offerings have been designed specifically for working adults. In addition, they offer valuable services for non-traditional students, including career counseling, financial planning and tutoring. The partnership with OnlineDegree.com is another step to help aid students on their path to a degree and provide them a tuition-free option to reach their 13 credit threshold to transfer.
“Our partnership with OnlineDegree.com allows a student to complete over one-third of their Bachelor’s degree requirements tuition free,” says Travis Coufal, Senior Director of Engagement at CSU-Global. “CSU-Global has always been committed to a low cost, high quality education that provides a strong return on investment. This partnership is a natural extension of that commitment.”
At a time when the cost of education has reached all-time highs, CSU-Global and OnlineDegree.com are creating a viable solution to lower the cost of tuition and prevent students from assuming large levels of debt.
Itay Dadon, a local businessman seeking to get his bachelor’s degree, is currently an OnlineDegree.com student. Upon hearing the news of the partnership he’s decided to enroll at CSU-Global. “Cost is a huge factor,” says Itay. “I can’t justify so much student debt at this point in my life. Given the cost savings at such a reputable school as CSU-Global, that’s a done deal in my mind. I’m in.”
“It’s prestigious institutions like Colorado State University-Global that are paving the way for real change to combat student debt,” says Aldrich. “These alternative pathways will ultimately help more students enroll at the university and achieve their dream of an affordable college education.”
