Studies show that it is more important than ever to get your degree, and those who don’t risk falling further and further behind. A fast track degree program can help many achieve the goal of a degree and stay ahead in the game. The five reasons below can help you determine if a fast track program is right for you – and show why Achieve Test Prep’s programs could be just what you need.
- You are one of the 83% of Americans who can’t afford college.
Fast track programs, such as Achieve Test Prep’s credit-by-exam, make college more affordable since “testing out” means you can reduce the number of classes you have to take, saving thousands in tuition costs.
- You don’t have time, or the schedule, to invest in a four-year program.
Studies show that the main reason students drop out of college is due to time constraints. Many find supporting a family or taking care of dependent children makes it too difficult to continue attending school in the traditional way. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded a study in which 71% of the students surveyed said work conflicts were a factor in their decision to drop out. Many students aren’t prepared and find that the college workload is far more than they expected. Balancing commitments and school is just too stressful for many students.
Here again, programs like Achieve Test Prep offer a solution. With Achieve’s credit-by-exam prep program, after a few short weeks of a prep course, you take and pass a single exam to receive a traditional semester’s worth of credit – eliminating the extra homework, essays, research reports, and quizzes. And Achieve’s courses are flexible, offering day, night, and weekend classes on one of our nationwide campuses or through online live virtual classrooms. Depending on your schedule and choice of degree, you could receive your degree in 2 to 3 years instead of the 4 to 6 years students typically require using traditional methods.
- You want to make a commitment to yourself.
Some fast track programs don’t consider your needs, and other programs often require a huge commitment from you through contracts with restrictive terms. With Achieve there are no long-term contracts and refunds are available based on our withdrawal policy. Attendance is easy because of our flexibility and the on campus or online options for classes. Our commitment is to you. Our goal is your success. That’s the Achieve difference.
- You’ve got dreams and you want to fulfill them.
It is estimated that a person with a degree will earn over a million dollars more than someone with just a high school diploma over the course of his or her working years. A degree makes you more marketable, and will prepare you for a good career with increased opportunities and flexibility to grow. Your college degree can empower you and give you more control in your life. You want the satisfaction and pride that comes to you - and your family - from graduating with a degree. Achieve can help you obtain your dreams faster and with less expense than possible through traditional methods.
- You like free stuff.
Who doesn’t like free stuff? Achieve delivers with FREE textbooks for the prep courses, FREE remedial help if you need extra tutoring to pass an exam, FREE one-on-one coaching to ensure your success, and FREE retakes of the course if you do fail to pass the first time (though the pass rate for our students is over 93%).
These are just a few of the reasons a fast track program makes sense. Contact Achieve Test Prep today for more about why our credit-by-exam program is the right choice for you.
