We support student success in many ways.  Students that need help overcoming college and university barriers to graduation can come to us for assistance in challenging restrictive policies and procedures.  We also prioritize connecting students with all of the resources they need to be successful, which include:

Awarding Non-traditional Credits

We want you to know the various options you have as a returning student in order to get the most out of your previous experiences. We composed comparison charts to display the flexibility of our colleges to guide you toward the right decision on what to study. You may also participate in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) to earn up to 60 FREE credit hours by taking an exam on a pre-approved course topic. ModernStates.org offers free CLEP prep courses and awards vouchers that waive the fee of the examination.  Learn more at the sites below:
