Modern States Education Alliance, a New York-based charity who is producing edX-formatted courses to provide an affordable access to college education, announced that it will cover the $80 cost of the CLEP (College Level Examination Program) exam fee for the first 10,000 students.
The catalog of Modern States’ courses, viewable at an Open edX-based platform, are built following College Board’s CLEP requirements.
“After you pass an exam, thousands of traditional colleges will give you course credit, enabling you to graduate sooner and at a lower cost,” explained a representative of Modern States.
These courses are part of the “Freshman Year for Free” program, with more than 30 courses that prepare students for exams leading to college credit.
