Coopersmith Career Consulting
Limited to Improbable Transfer
Coopersmith offers some courses that aren’t readily available elsewhere, and they also offer upper-level courses—something that isn’t easy to come by as an inexpensive online self-paced option. But, with their limited transfer options, my recommendation is to only consider using Coopersmith if you’re choosing one of The Big 3. Thomas Edison State University,
Charter Oak State College, and Excelsior College accept Coopersmith courses.
(effective January 2020, Charter Oak State College no longer accepts Coopersmith for college credit)
Coopersmith is essentially a credit by exam product. You prepare using their materials and take their final exam. Passing the final exam is the only thing you need to do to get college credit.
The cost is low, at only $50 per credit. Most courses are 3–4 credits.
The format is simple: read the content, study on your own, take the test. Coopersmith uses the online web-proctoring service Proctor U to supervise your exam.
