During September and October, I’m highlighting affordable dual enrollment programs each Sunday. To make the cut, a program must be open to students from any state, available online, and charge less than $100 per credit. Today’s program is called “TEL” and it is offered through an online partnership with Lane College HBCU.
Lane College (Tennessee)
Private 4-year Historically Black College University
Program Name: TEL / Lane College Dual Enrollment
$200 per course (before 10% coupon)
Today’s program is similar to last week’s program in that you can register for the Lane College Dual Enrollment program through the TEL Learning Portal, but unlike last week, it makes no difference in price or access where you register- you can visit Lane College’s website or TEL Learning, you’ll end up in the same place.
TEL Learning (.org) has partnered with Lane College to offer a number of courses to high school students for a very reduced rate. The special bonus here is that your teen’s courses will STILL APPEAR ON AN OFFICIAL Lane College transcript (with a grade) – it will look exactly the same in both cases, but in this case you’re getting a price savings AND an opportunity to preview the course in advance. You don’t have to finish a degree with Lane College unless you want to, otherwise your courses can transfer later to your target college.

The cost for a 3 credit class is $200 and $67 for a 1 credit class. There are no additional fees – application fees, registration fees, textbooks, online access codes, etc.
TEL has provided our community with a discount coupon code. We do not receive any financial compensation if you use this code.

Step 1: Review the course catalog
Learn more about the objectives for each course and review what will be expected from each student. These are college-level courses and require college-level work. The courses are self-paced, and students who enroll in a course have up to a full calendar year to complete it.
Step 2: Choose a transcribing partner
Review the different transcribing partners on the Partner page. Check out the courses that they have approved and their equivalencies. Understand how the course will appear on the transcript when it is successfully completed. Choose a partner that fits with your academic goals, whether that’s a school you would want to enroll in full time or one that aligns with your outlook.
Step 3: Purchase and Register
After selecting the course and the transcribing partner, add the course to your cart. The courses are $67 per credit hour, or $200 for a three-hour course. The price includes all the course materials as well as exam proctoring fees and student support coaches.
Step 4: Complete the Course
Each course contains 60 to 70 lessons and combines written material, videos, and quizzes to help students understand the material. The mastery assignments for each course are designed to help students do more than repeat the material. They help students analyze, break it down, and apply it to other situations. Learn more about our Course Design.
Step 5: Request a Transcript
Once you have successfully completed the course with a passing grade, you can request a transcript form the regionally accredited partner institution you selected. You can apply the credit to a future degree at the partner institution or you can transfer the credit to another college or university. Reach out to the school you plan to transfer to so you know exactly how these credits work.
Step 6: Keep Learning
Even after you’ve completed your course, you can still visit your learning dashboard to review the translatable skills and competencies you learned during the TEL course. You can also add to your learning dashboard as you complete new courses, with TEL or on another platform.
TEL Learning offers high-quality, self-paced courses that can be used in one of two ways: 1) for college credit for a fee, or 2) as a free resource for your homeschool (no college credit). Both of these options use the exact same course but with different end purposes. Let’s examine the college credit option first.
