Completed courses receive letter grades. Here's the email response I received from Outlier.

"I hope this email finds you well. Currently, students will earn letter grades when taking our courses through Outlier.org. Generally speaking, college-level courses completed at regionally-accredited institutions should transfer, provided that a grade of at least "C" (2.0) is earned. However, we highly recommend that you still contact the school you will be transferring credits to just to be sure as circumstances often fluctuate from college to college. 

If you have any further questions about grades or anything else, please don't be afraid to reach out!

All the best, 
Derrick & The Outlier Team"

I edited my comment since it looks like ASU changed their cost. Looks like both Outlier and ASU Earned Admission are both $400 per course. I'm not 100% confident that ASU courses appear on an ASU transcript in a way that allows easy transfer OUT of ASU..... that's always the million-dollar question.

I'm pretty excited about this simply because their other product (Masterclass) is excellent.  Assuming similar quality, it will be exceptionally good... fingers crossed.

Hi, Jennifer: 

I'm familiar with Westcott/Omega Math. 

Who else am I missing?

TEL = Colorado Christian University
Outlier.org = University of Pittsburg
Lumerit = Waldorf

I transferred two of their courses over to TESU with no issue. If you'd like, PM me and I can send you a copy of my official transcript (I ordered one for myself because I wanted to see exactly what it said). As far as I can tell, there's no indication it's anything but a regular ASU course.
Completed:
BA History & Psychology, Thomas Edison State University (completed, set for March '20 graduation)
ASNSM Mathematics, Thomas Edison State University (completed set for March '20 graduation)

Up Next:
JD, School To Be Determined
