OnlineDegree.com claiming to launch next week
#1
Just got this email 

Quote:It all happens next week!

OnlineDegree.com officially opens its doors.

That means you can begin taking any one of fifteen college-level courses tuition-FREE.

You’ll have the opportunity to take courses on topics such as:

  • Criminal justice

  • Marketing and Business

  • Economics

  • Psychology

  • Education

  • Robotics

  • Computer programming

  • Healthcare

  • And many more...

Any one of these classes could be the class that changes the course of your life forever.

Any one of them could provide the skills that puts you on a path to more security, prosperity, and meaning.

According to a recent study, Americans with a college bachelors degree typically earn on average $1M more than Americans without a college degree during their lifetime.1

Their salaries are on average 74% higher, and the unemployment rate for people with degrees is 58% lower.

By enrolling next week, you’re taking the steps you need to secure your future, and possibly receive credit towards the degree of your dreams.

Your family will thank you, your friends will thank you, and you will thank yourself.

Ben Franklin said, "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

We’d like to update that and say "A free investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

See you in class!

To your success,

Wonder if Grant is teaching that one personally.

Getting NCCRS or ACE is very expensive, most places won't do both. Study.com and Saylor.org are the only ones coming to mind immediately that have both, both, but that's unusual. Study.com seems to have a lot of cashflow to make it happen, and Saylor.org probably has a lot of resources as a relatively well known non-profit. OnelineDegree.com doesn't seem to have the benefit of either of those at this point, so I imagine they'll stick to NCCRS.
