#19 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, you have to find a college that awards credit for these, but Thomas Edison State University, Charter Oak State College, and Excelsior College accept all Coopersmith courses.

(effective January 2020, Charter Oak State College no longer accepts Coopersmith for 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.
