Education-Portal.com, a site dedicated to making education accessible to everyone, everywhere, recently launched free virtual classes to help students earn the lowest cost college credit. The free classes consist of short video lessons designed to be digested in just a few minutes time. Each lesson is focused on a very specific topic so that students can easily pick out what they need to learn and skip the rest.
Collectively, the lessons can help you prepare for the CLEP (College Level Examination Program), a series of 33 subject-specific exams. Each exam is worth the credit of the comparable college course. Every exam you pass represents one less class you have to take to earn your degree. Each CLEP exams costs only $77--much cheaper than the cost of the average college course ($600 according to the CollegeBoard.) Anyone can take these exams--they are not like the AP exams designed for high schoolers.
If you are getting ready to enroll in college or business school, check out the classes offered through Education Portal Academy. Additional classes are in the works, so be sure to check back frequently to take advantage of new opportunities. The preparation you receive may help you save thousands of dollars on your education costs.
