Answers to your questions

Is Achieve Test Prep a school?

No. Achieve does not offer degrees or credits directly. But we support those pursuing their education with CLEP exam prep services that save time and stress. Our services fill in the educational gaps and support systems that traditional colleges do not offer. 

How can Achieve help me?

Our goal is to minimize many of the challenges faced by working adults returning to school. We can help you get the support you need to fit education into your busy life. Through college planning, online test prep courses, tutoring services, and more, we provide extra guidance that helps make college less stressful. 

I’ve been out of school for a long time… will this work for me?

Yes. Our program is specifically designed for busy adults who’ve been out of school for a long time. We break down subjects to their most essential topics, focusing only on what you’ll need to know for your exam. By eliminating excessive coursework and in-person participation, you’ll be able to zero in on what you need to succeed. Unlike other programs that require you to learn on your own, our live instruction provides support and accountability. Your success is our #1 goal.

How many courses can I test out of?

Achieve provides credit by exam preparation for 22 prerequisite subjects. Depending on which prereqs you need and how many credit by exam credits your accredited college will accept, you can potentially test out of up to one year of college courses.
