How to find out Study.com pricing BEFORE giving all my info
#1
Hello,

I'm new here.  I have been trying to no avail to find out what Study.com's pricing is without having to FIRST give them my name, phone number, email address AND credit card number.  I just want information but there is no way (that I can find) to get it without answering every question they ask and clicking continue. I really wanted to know so I continued through all their steps, answering questions, giving info until I got to the credit card information.  By then I was fed up and quit. All I wanted to know was how much it costs so I can make a decision.  Why do they need all that from me?

Seems everyone wants your data these days... I could understand if I were on a site offering free services.  My data is the price I pay, but not for something like this.

Is this a new thing? Any suggestions?

For the college accelerator subscription it costs $199/month. If you prepay for a whole year, they drop it down to $179/month.

https://study.com/academy/plans.html - Currently the College Accelerator (the one you need to take exams for credit) is $200 a month, that includes 2 exams, you can add additional exams within the month for $70 each after you complete the first two.  If you do not use those two exams in the month they do not carry forward.  Myself, I have never had an issue with not being able to complete the two exams (none have gone to 'waste').  I just commit to completing at least a  'chapter a day' and it goes along pretty quickly without being endless hours upon hours (or feeling that way - at least for most topics  Smile )

Don't know what you are doing, but I was able to make it to the pricing section by making up a name/email address, didn't have to enter any credit card info until you are ready to actually pay.

On the page asking for credit card info there's a box with one price based on my answers, but not a list of pricing plans or anything like that.  How did you get to it?

If you are talking about the college accelerator plan (in order to obtain college level credits) there is only one plan at $199 a month.

Thanks for writing this post. I plan on taking a few Study.com classes soon. I forgot that you were limited to two exams per month for the $200 and had to pay for additional ones. I plan on doing 3 classes with them, thanks again.
