Degree Planning With Outsourced Credit

In this video, I’ll show you the basics of an “outsourced credit” strategy. This strategy is probably the #1 way parents here cash-flow degrees for their teens and avoid student loan debt. When you replace expensive college classes with affordable ones, you can move at the speed of budget (and start in high school!)

As I’m currently constructing a degree plan for a specific educational institution, namely Indiana Institute of Technology, I want to guide you through my process using courses. It is crucial to note that not all credit types, such as credit, can be easily applied towards a degree. For this reason, it is advisable to choose only partner colleges that have entered into a written agreement with because these schools will accept this type of college credit.  A great thing about the process I’m showing you today, is that provides a written equivalency list that has already been established between them and Indiana Institute of Technology. This takes out a lot of guesswork. While there may be colleges outside of the partner list that accept transfer credit, the partner list guarantees a smooth transfer process. Additionally, some partner colleges may offer tuition discounts, which could sway your decision in selecting a school. In my case, since I am aiming for an Associate’s degree in Accounting, I will start by exploring the credit-eligible courses provided by the Indiana Institute of Technology to partnership agreement, which can be found at the bottom of the list. Watch the full video for a breakdown of how I track each of the degree requirements to a course.
