Grace College has entered a partnership with StraighterLine, a provider of alternative academic credit.

The two organizations seek to offer students an affordable, convenient pathway toward bachelor’s degree completion, according to a news release from Grace. The partnership will allow students in Grace’s Opportunities for Adult Learners program to complete the general education courses necessary to fulfill their bachelor’s degree from the comfort of their own home completely online.

According to StraighterLine Founder and CEO Burck Smith, “Grace College’s degree completion program aligns well with our mission to help students affordably complete general education courses online and guarantee credit transfer to applicable degree programs. By partnering with StraighterLine, Grace College is helping nontraditional learners complete the prerequisites they need to get on the fast track to degree completion.”

Grace College President Dr. Bill Katip said, “We are very pleased to partner with StraighterLine as they share our commitment to help nontraditional students complete their degree as well as our dedication to high-quality college education.” 

StraighterLine is a designated Educational Quality through Innovative Partnerships partner by the U.S. Department of Education and all StraighterLine credit-bearing courses are approved by the American Council on Education (ACE).

Grace College’s GOAL program leads to a bachelor of science in management, business administration or human services. The program serves those who have interrupted their higher education for work, family or other commitments. GOAL is designed for adult learners who desire to complete their degree in as little as 16 months while maintaining full-time life responsibilities.
