#8 Unbound / Lumerit Scholar/ College Plus
Note: most of the Unbound / Lumerit Scholar catalog is not worth college credit but the cost is the same – if you’re homeschooling for college credit, be sure to note that only the courses below are ACE evaluated for college credit.
Partner Colleges: Lumerit Scholar does not provide a list of partnership colleges on their website. While they do state that they have written degree maps to “over 1000 colleges” that is a marketing statement only. Since Lumerit has several ACE evaluated courses, those courses should be accepted anywhere ACE credit is accepted.
Cost: Lumerit’s value is in their ancillary services offered to the family, not in cost savings on college credit. Unbound/Lumerit charges $7,500 for access to their coaching and ACE courses. Note that if you completed their entire list of ACE courses (below) for 27 credits, your cost per credit is $277. This is more than double the cost of most community colleges, on par with most state universities, and 25x the cost of most ACE credit.
