Bethel College Adult and Graduate Studies First in the Area to Partner with StraighterLine

Bethel College adult and graduate studies announces a partnership with StraighterLine, a leading provider of affordable, flexible and transferable online college courses. Bethel is the first local college to partner with StraighterLine, providing students with low-cost online courses that allow them to create a degree path customized to their needs.

“We believe this partnership will benefit our students by offering an additional option for satisfying their general education and elective credits, while completing their major course work at Bethel,” says Toni Steffensen Pauls, vice president for adult and graduate studies. “With the increasing concerns about the rising cost of education, we want to give students options that allow them to be in control of their educational experience.”

Students can take any 10 courses with a 12-month StraighterLine membershipfor $1,299 and apply the credits towards a degree at Bethel. All course work is completed online at the student’s pace, allowing them to work at their convenience. Students can also opt for a monthly StraighterLine membership, paying $99 per month for access to the site and unlimited courses for as low as $49 each.
