Looking for online college courses that you can take to earn college credit towards your degree? We've got you! In our course catalog you will find online college courses from 8 of the best college course providers out there. All the courses on offer from these providers are:
When taking classes from alternative course providers, it's important that you check those classes will transfer, ie. count towards your degree at your home institution.
Classes in our catalog are categorized as either "Good Transfer" (grey symbol) or "Excellent Transfer" (green symbol).
Classes that are categorized as "Good Transfer" are ACE accredited. If your home university accepts ACE credit then there's a great chance that these online classes will be accepted as college credit towards your degree requirements. ACE states that 1,700 institutions accept ACE credit, there's a list of those institutions here. Even if your university isn't listed there, they may still accept ACE credit. You should speak directly to an advisor at your university to confirm.
Classes categorized as "Excellent Transfer" are regionally accredited. Regional accreditation is the gold standard of accreditation. Classes that are regionally accredited are extremely likely to be accepted at every university that accepts transfer credit.
Guaranteeing that courses will transfer can be quite a complex and long-winded process, which requires you get pre-approval from your home university. However long that process takes in our opinion is totally worth it considering how much money you can save!
Each provider listed in our catalog has detailed guides and information that help you in transferring credits earnt through their classes, so we defer to them for specific advice. Outlier (one of the providers) created this excellent document detailing the steps to get their classes approved.
We've also categorized classes in our catalog by their suitability for traveling. Why? Because we at Edumadic are taking these classes while traveling around the world. If you're traveling, some classes can be harder than others to stay on track with. For example if you're traveling through Asia, attending a live online lecture in the US can be tricky due to time zone differences.
If you're combining your online college courses with world travel it's important that they're flexible. We've categorized classes in our catalog as either "Good for Travel" (grey world) or "Perfect for Travel" (green world).
Classes that are only good for travel are still well suited to combining with world travel, but they do have some time sensitive requirements. Most in this category have fixed start and end dates, so you can't enroll whenever suits you, and you will have to complete assignments and meet deadlines at a pace set by the course provider.
Courses in our catalog that are deemed perfect for travel are as flexible as online college courses can be. That means:
