Now you can earn your degree for under $15,000 and in two years or less! This program is great for homeschoolers who are highly motivated and work well on their own. In fact, many homeschoolers are combining high school and college to graduate with their bachelor’s degrees when their peers are finishing high school!

CollegePlus! students take ownership of their education by studying at their own pace and amassing college credits at an accelerated rate, finally graduating through a regionally accredited distance learning college. They do this by taking CLEP and DANTES tests that are worth college credits and are accepted at over two thousands colleges and universities around the country. This process, called credit by exam, costs significantly less than the per credit fees at the typical college and university—each exam costs about $80 and is worth between 3 and 12 college credits. Compare this to $250 per credit at a brick and mortar university and the cost different becomes obvious.
