As with everything else here at StraighterLine, like publishing student course ratings and average pass rates, our goal is to give you the information you need to make the right choices for you.

And with that, it’s time for you to get to know Professor Bethany Bird:

StraighterLine Scholar of the Month: Frances Smith — Straight Talk: College Education Blog

StraighterLine student Frances Smith is a woman who doesn’t let obstacles stand between her and her educational goals.

Back in April, 2009, Frances still had some courses to complete before she could earn her A.S. degree. So she turned to StraighterLine, completed both College Algebra and English Composition I within just one month, and then transferred the credits. “I went to my local community college and completed my A.S. in the spring of 2010,” she explains. She also took CLEP Exams to earn and apply an additional 30 credit hours.

Scholar of the Month: StraighterLine Student Ben Gribaudo — Straight Talk: College Education Blog | StraighterLine Student Success Stories & Testimonials | Scoop.it

Ben Gribaudo is a student who used StraighterLine courses to complete his degree at Thomas Edison State College in New Jersey. "DegreeForum was the site that helped me realize how StraighterLine could fill in holes in my degree plan. Specifically, my degree had a business communications and two accounting requirements that couldn’t be met through CLEP/DSST tests and which, for cost and time reasons, I didn’t want to take directly from Thomas Edison."
