Two Reasons Home School Students Use the Written Study Plans as They’re Earning Dual Credit
Different students have different reasons for using Dual Credit at Home’s written Study Plans.
For some it’s simply to wrap up high school – to be confident that all subjects were covered and covered well – and earning college credit is just a bonus. But for most, the Study Plans are used as a help as they earn dual credit by passing college-level exams. (The Study Plans could just as easily be used by a high school graduate who wants a written plan to follow as they accelerate their college studies.)
As your student earns dual credit, it’s important to consider their chosen school’s policy on incoming credits. Most colleges limit the number of credits students may transfer in – either from another college or on a test transcript – because they prefer you to pay to be in their classrooms.
Want more flexibility?
Consider choosing an accredited college that allows more flexibility in earning credits. Remember, the average time it takes to earn a bachelor’s degree is 5 years and 8 months, and the average student debt after a “4-year” degree is $26,000!
Our written Study Plans are primarily used by students who plan to earn their college degree in a non-traditional way – either to earn it in less time or to save money. Most students choosing the exam method, choose to earn their accredited degree from a school like Charter Oak State College or Thomas Edison State College – both are fully accredited and accept a large number of credits by exam.
