3 The Parents Guide To StraighterLine Make a Difference in Your Child s College Success and Financial Future Enroll Your High School Student in StraighterLine Online College Courses Choosing the best options for your child's college education can be confusing, stressful, and time-consuming. Mistakes at this stage in your child's education can come at a high price in terms of both money and lifelong success. That's why StraighterLine's revolutionary $99/month college subscription program is a welcome relief to both parents and students alike. With StraighterLine online college courses, students can challenge themselves academically at a pace they set themselves - all without the pressure of taking on student loans and the rigidity of semester time limits. Is Your Child Excelling in College Algebra or Underwater Angry Birds? A lot can happen between the time your child starts college and his or her graduation date. Not all of it good. In fact, not all students who start college go on to graduate. In the U.S., almost 70% of high school graduates go to college, but only about 40% earn their degree by their mid-twenties. 1 When you factor in that the average annual cost of college is just over $32,000 for a private 4-year university 2, not graduating can dim even the brightest of futures with limited career options and unmanageable school loan debt. StraighterLine online classes can equip your student with a portfolio of earned college credits that can help him or her step into their educational future with confidence - and save considerable tuition dollars along the way. Taking Courses Before College Can Lead to Success in College Studies have shown that completing college courses before actually enrolling in college is a good predictor of success in college. Nearly 90% of StraighterLine alums are either currently enrolled in a degree program or have completed a college degree since taking their StraighterLine course. Over 70% who completed a StraighterLine course felt it made them more likely to complete a college degree. 1 Harvard Graduate School of Education, Pathways to Prosperity, 2/2011, p.6 2 National Center for Education Statistics: Fast Facts, Tuition Costs of Colleges and Univesities, 201, p.1. 3

Online College Prep classes include: introductory algebra, developmental writing, and Student Success. Advanced Placement (AP): StraighterLine offers 5 AP-approved online courses. Your student can get a head start on the AP coursework they plan on taking in the fall, or complete a StraighterLine course and free up their schedule for other senior year requirements. Earn College Credit Now to Save Tuition Later: Students can get a jump on college by earning enough credits to possibly bypass a semester or two when they take online college classes through StraighterLine. StraighterLine offers a full spectrum of online college classes eligible for full college credit through ACE.

And when it comes time for college credit transfer, StraighterLine is here to help streamline the credit transfer process to any of our partner colleges. Put your child on the path to college success and save your tuition money for a semester further down the college path - enroll your student in StraighterLine online classes today. 5

6 The Parents Guide to StraighterLine Save Time and Money with StraighterLine Online AP Courses Over 90% of 4-year colleges in the US give students credit or advanced placement (or both) on the basis of AP Exam scores. Your child can save time and money by getting these required courses out of the way in advance, and StraighterLine makes it easier to do both. StraighterLine has 5 courses that have received approval by the College Board to be listed as AP courses: College Board AP Course Title AP Macroeconomics AP Microeconomics AP English Language and Composition AP Calculus AB AP Psychology StraighterLine Course Equivalent Economics I: Macroeconomics Economics II: Microeconomics English Composition General Calculus I Introduction to Psychology StraighterLine Online AP courses are right for your child if: He or she didn't get into an AP course in time to be ready for the next College Board AP test in May. He or she can't get into an AP class next year because his or her grades aren't high enough. He or she is going back to school and would like to save as much money as possible on his or her required courses. 2 Ways to Save Time AP tests are given once a year in May. If your child is not ready, he or she has to wait a whole year. But what if your child can't wait because he or she is graduating? With StraighterLine, your child can take an AP course online any time - and in time - for the next test. On average, college students take credits per semester. All five StraighterLine AP courses are required at most schools, so that's 12 credits, most if not all of an entire semester that your child can skip if he or she places out of them on the AP tests. 6

7 2 Ways to Save Money You can take a single StraighterLine course for as little as $148 ($99/month subscription plus a $49 one-time course fee). But you can save even more. Just take all 5 required online AP classes we offer on our Monthly Subscription Plan of $99 a month, plus $49 per course. If your child completes all 5 AP online courses online in 28 days each, which is about average, you'd pay just $740. Compared to the cost of an entire semester, you could save thousands!* StraighterLine AP online classes are among the least expensive AP classes you'll find anywhere outside of high school. So if your child needs to take an AP class, you'll save more if he or she takes them with StraighterLine. *According to the College Board, one year tuition and fees for 2012 for a 4-year college average between $8,655 for a public 4-year college and $29,056 for a private 4-year college. Assuming 2 semesters per year with 6, 3-credit courses per semester, the average cost per 3-credit class is between $721 and $2,421 per course. 7

8 The Parents Guide to StraighterLine Consider Taking Required Courses from StraighterLine When your child enrolls at StraighterLine, he or she takes our online, self-paced college courses in the comfort of your own home. If your child passes those courses, they automatically transfer for full credit when he or she enrolls in one of our accredited partner colleges. Your Child s Degree Comes from Them. The Savings Comes from Us. Why pay more for the same degree? For just $99 a month plus a $49 per course registration fee, your child can take as many 3- and 4-credit college courses as he or she wants. Courses include: Business Accounting I Accounting II Business Communications Business Ethics Business Law Economics I: Macroeconomics Economics II: Microeconomics Financial Accounting Introduction to Business Managerial Accounting Organizational Behavior Principles of Management College Prep Developmental Writing Introductory Algebra Prior Learning Assessment Student Success English English Composition I English Composition II Humanities American Government Cultural Anthropology Introduction to Communications Introduction to Criminal Justice Introduction to Philosophy Introduction to Religion Introduction to Sociology Personal Finance United States History I United States History II Western Civilization I Western Civilization II Languages Spanish I Spanish II Mathematics Business Statistics Calculus I Calculus II College Algebra Precalculus Sciences Anatomy & Physiology I Anatomy & Physiology II First Aid/CPR General Chemistry I General Physics I General Physics II Introduction to Biology Introduction to Environmental Science Introduction to Nutrition Introduction to Psychology Medical Terminology Microbiology Personal Fitness & Wellness Pharmacology I Pharmacology II 8

9 The Parents Guide to StraighterLine Why StraighterLine? StraighterLine has been recognized as a revolutionizing force in education by major news organizations and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. We have forged partnerships with the leading accredited online colleges and universities. Our Partner Schools include: Our courses are evaluated and recommended by the American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT), which includes over 1,800 participating colleges and universities. In addition to the institutions with which StraighterLine has a direct relationship, more than 300 other schools are reported to have accepted StraighterLine coursework for transfer credit. 9

10 Don t Take Our Word for It. Listen to Our Students "Because of your company I am able to finish my BA this year!!! I use the post 9/11 GI bill and doing these classes are saving me valuable time so I can move on to my MA next year!...i didn't think I would be able to have enough time for a BA and MA but straighterline is making it possible! Love the program!!!" - Tawny Miller, 5/31/12 "Love your program it is easily one of the most challenging and rewarding programs offered online." - Michelle Dyer, 3/7/12 "Working full-time and caring for a family makes it impossible for me to attend brick and mortar classes during the week....there is no other product out there that can compare to StraighterLine's $99 monthly enrollment. It's cost effective, convenient, and makes earning your degree possible. I highly recommend StraighterLine!" - Cory Hutchinson, 1/16/12 "I've had 10 courses transferred so far without any issue, and it's usually been very prompt in comparison to most schools I've dealt with." - Adam Ditillo, 12/12/11 "...I also appreciate the unconditional support I have received from the school - it's so reassuring to know that there is a constant team of support while I am completing my courses - especially since I have been out of school for a long time! Thanks again for everything!" - Laura Chimuk, 3/26/12 10

11 The Parents Guide to StraighterLine Our Students Grade Us! To better understand how our courses are meeting students' needs, we commissioned a well-regarded higher education research firm to conduct a survey of our alumni. StraighterLine Students Earn Real College Credit 95% of the students who sought credit for completed StraighterLine coursework were successful. This includes nearly 82% of those who sought credit at colleges and universities outside the StraighterLine partner college network (ie, institutions with which StraighterLine does not have a formal articulation-like arrangement). StraighterLine s Programs Are Effective Over 70% who completed a StraighterLine course felt it made them more likely to complete a college degree. Over half felt better prepared for traditional college courses as a result of having taken a StraighterLine course. Students Are Overwhelmingly Satisfied with StraighterLine s Courses Among those who completed a StraighterLine course,over 90% would recommend the program to a friend. Satisfaction was remarkably high even among those who did not successfully complete,where 76% would still recommend StraighterLine to a friend. StraighterLine vs. Online Courses Offered by Traditional Colleges and Universities Respondents who had also earned college credit through an online course offered by a college or university were asked to compare that experience with StraighterLine on a number of measures. StraighterLine courses were found to be: Continues 11

12 Equally or more rigorous 91% indicated StraighterLine equally or more academically rigorous than Online University/ College Courses More convenient 70% indicated StraighterLine more convenient than Online University/College Courses More affordable 61% indicated StraighterLine lower cost than Online University/College Courses Greater overall satisfaction 94% indicated more or equally satisfied with Straighterline compared with Online University/ College Courses About the study: Hezel Associates invited to participate in the survey all students who had either successfully or unsuccessfully completed a StraighterLine course during the period from the company's inception to June 6, There was an 11.8% response rate during the data collection period.
