On average an equivalent college course can cost up to $1,200. Add the cost of the transcript request (around $15) along with the proctoring fee and you’ve earned college credits for as little as $40.

Ask your school about ACE CREDIT, or if you are looking for a program, our partner schools directly accept credit and often work with adult learners.

*ProctorU is an organization that provides online proctoring services and Saylor Academy does not receive money from a students use of the service.
