As the cost of college rises, more and more students are taking on debt to finance their education. This debt can delay post-college goals such as buying a home, taking a vacation, or starting a family. In short, college debt becomes a burden.
How about a way to earn college credit on your own schedule with no debt while learning in the environment of your choice?
Impossible? I thought so, until…
Credit-by-exam Tests ◄ • • • • • • •
Following in the footsteps of Brad Voeller, distance learning advocate and author of Accelerated Distance Learning, I began earning college credit by using credit-by-exam tests. These tests function in the same way as testing out of a class or taking an AP course in high school. Students use these tests to earn their general education credits to later transfer to their college, gain credit for their workplace experience, and even earn their entire degree off-campus.
Why Did I Decide to Write This Book? ◄ • • • • • • •
In 2012, I earned my bachelor’s degree in social sciences from Thomas Edison State University for $10,000. After I graduated, I began compiling the resources that had helped me earn my degree. I had spent four years learning how to save money, earn credit without debt, and, most importantly, how to learn. When people I met asked me about my college experience, I could see a need to explain in longform how they could use these same techniques.
What Topics Are Covered in College Without the Campus? ◄ • • • • • • •
College Without the Campus walks the reader through taking credit-by-exam tests such as CLEP and DSST. I also describe how this style of testing differs from online courses. Other topics that I cover are how to choose a college, deal with procrastination, and maintain the positive social aspects of college while off-campus. I also describe how this style of testing differs from online courses.
