World Mentoring Academy

Earn a College Degree >$5,000(AP/CLEP/DSST fees & Textbooks)

Updated 12/2015

 World Mentoring Academy supports students with 180+ Credit-by-Examination courses, the other 620 courses can be used to Challenge courses at your University. 

How to accelerate your degree completion through transfers and test-outs and complete your degree for as little as $5,000-$10,000 from scratch. Also, tests can be taken by students at virtually any age, so parents get your kids started! There are quite a few high school students who are planning to complete associate's or even bachelor's degrees by the time they graduate high school!

There are currently three Universities(Regionally accredited) that allow you to transfer in all 120 credits towards a bachelor's degree & also have Masters programs: Thomas Edison State College(TESC), Excelsior College(EC), and Charter Oak State College(COSC). The Big 3 schools are tailored to adult learners seeking a degree for career or personal enhancement. Don't worry, these aren't diploma mills, two of them are state schools. These schools specialize in providing education opportunities to busy, working adults who may have a collection of credits or creditable experience from multiple sources. Thanks to their generous policies it is possible to earn a bachelor's degree without taking a single college class. As long as you know how to do it, understand the policies, and are willing to put in the work, that is.
