Are these Courses worth college credit?
We do not make any guarantees that any course on our service will convert to "college credit". We can only provide interested parties with official information that documents your progress in a specific course. Some institutions will accept the documentation as proof of fulfilling a course requirement, and others will not. No online or mortar-based school can guarantee that any specific course you take at any college will be accepted by another institution. Ultimately, it's up to your advisor and/or admissions office.
