Who is Global Learn?
We’re an education company that offers online courses designed to help you earn credit that can be applied toward a degree program from a college or university. Our program prepares you to pass end-of-course college equivalency exams, including CLEP®, DSST®, and Excelsior College® Exams. We are not a school and therefore not accredited.
What is college equivalency testing or “testing out”?
College equivalency testing allows you to demonstrate your knowledge and proficiency in a given subject area. When you pass an exam and transfer your scores to the degree-granting institution, you will receive credit for that course.
When I begin my program with Global Learn, am I automatically enrolled with the college or university that is granting my degree?
No. Enrollment into each college or university is a separate process and requires separate fees to be paid directly to the college or university. Admission and final determination of credits rests with the college or university.
Does Global Learn award the degree?
No, Global Learn is not a school. Your degree is awarded by the degree-granting institution.
How long will my program last?
Global Learn’s program enables you to complete your courses at a pace that works with your schedule. However, the degree-granting institution may require specific start times for their portion of the program. Degree requirements, transfer credits, and the amount of time you devote to the program will determine the length of time.
Will I have to repeat courses because my credits are too old?
Credit hours from courses in which you earned a passing grade completed at a nationally or regionally accredited college or university may be applied to your degree program. The acceptance of previous college credit is at the discretion of the degree-granting institution.
