Taking College Courses through ASU Digital Prep

ASU’s Digital Prep program offers 2 interesting options to high school students. Students who wish to use their full-time high school program can take up to 2 free university courses per semester. This program is free to Arizona students. Out of state full-time students are charged tuition based on the program they choose.

The second option they offer is part-time Concurrent Enrollment. Students pay $600 per course for ala carte university classes, plus books/supplies. Students can complete as many courses as they’d like at this rate.

Unlike ASU’s Earned Admissions program, that offers low-risk, high-reward courses with no record of failure, Digital Prep’s University courses are subject to the “normal” college rules, such as drop dates, paying up front for the course, and the additional purchase of books and supplies may be required. Failing or substandard grades would become part of their permanent ASU transcript, if the student does not drop or withdraw from a class by the deadlines.

ASU Digital Prep provides several suggested Career Pathways to a wide variety of careers, including engineering, business, arts, sciences, law, pre-med or vet, and many more. ASU’s Digital Prep program expands the number of courses offered to high school students at a deeply discounted rate of $600/course.

How to Sign Up for ASU’s Earned Admissions Courses

Arizona State University’s Earned Admissions program offers a unique low-risk high-reward opportunity for students to take college level courses at a reasonable price. The cost is $25 to sign up for each course, and $400 paid at the END of the course, but only if you like the grade! If you don’t pay, there is NO record of the course – and students can retake courses as many times as necessary to pass. We know of no other source of regionally accredited (the gold standard) credit offering this amazing option. Their hassle free registration requires no transcripts, and no placement tests, too!

How to Sign Up

  1. ASURITE Account
  • NEW Students who are still in high school (or lower), who do NOT have an ASURITE ID should go to HS.ea.asu.edu and sign up for an ASURITE ID. Adults can use the ea.asu.edu main portal to sign up. This step can take 2-3 days.

2. FERPA

(Step added 10/2/20) Once you receive your ASURITE ID and can login, you’ll need to fill out the FERPA agreement to allow parents or guardians to speak with ASU staff about the student’s account. Please login to myASU (far top right corner) and add the Parent/Guardian to the account by clicking on the “Add a Guest” and fill out the information. This is probably the ONLY time you’ll log into the myASU portal. The rest of the time you’ll use the Login link on the EA page (black bar). Obviously, adult students would skip this step.

3. Register for a course

  • Make sure you are in the EA portal ea.asu.edu or hs.ea.asu.edu and NOT in the myASU portal – the course are different from the main portal and charged at full ASU tuition! Log out if you need to or just put ea.asu.edu into your URL window.
  • When you log in to your ASU account using the Login button on the black bar in the ea.asu.edu or hs.ea.asu.edu portal, you will be presented with the Dashboard.
  • Click the “Add Courses” link either on the black bar at the top, or from the blue bar titled “My Current Courses”
  • Scroll through the list of courses and select the Add Course button.
  • Notice that some courses have both a self-paced option and an Instructor Paced option. Be sure to select the correct course.

4. Upgrade the Course

  • Click on Upgrade Course to upgrade the class for potential college credit. The normal fee for this is $25. A photo ID is required in this step, as well as a camera on your computer or device you are using.
  • All ASU courses require a photo ID to upgrade for credit. That can be a government issued ID, a school ID, Military or DoD or dependent ID, passport/passport ID, notarized College Board form with photo (used for AP/CLEP testing by underaged kids), and some have successfully used homeschool or co-op ID’s. If using a homeschool ID, ideally it would have their name, DOB, and Photo – must have a photo. If you have concerns, please email earned@asu.edu or call them! You will use this ID when you upgrade the course for credit at the beginning of the course, and again for any proctored exams (some have proctored finals).

FAQ

Q: How long should it take to get an ASURITE ID? 

A: It usually takes up to 2-3 days to get an ID and get into the system

Q: I have a problem and I’d like to call ASU… who can I call?
https://ea.asu.edu/about/contact-us 
or earned@asu.edu (their main email for the program)
We recommend NOT calling the main phone line for ASU. Not everyone manning the main campus phone lines understand the EA program.

Q: Do I sign up for the courses in the portal or do they sign us up? 

A: You sign up for courses yourself. Login and select courses using the Add Courses on the Dashboard.

Q: Do I need a photo ID?

A: Yes, all ASU courses require a photo ID. That can be a government issued ID, a school ID, Military or DoD or dependent ID, passport/passport ID, notarized College Board form with photo (used for AP/CLEP testing by underaged kids), and some have successfully used homeschool or co-op ID’s. If using a homeschool ID, ideally it would have their name, DOB, and Photo – must have a photo. If concerned, you could potentially combine one of these with a SS card or birth certificate. If you have concerns, please email or call them! You will use this ID when you upgrade the course for credit at the beginning of the course, and again for any proctored exams (some have proctored finals).

Q: Do these courses transfer to other colleges and are they accredited?
A: Yes, they are accredited. ASU is a well known and well respected 4-year college. 

As with EVERY class or exam, we always recommend you check with the colleges of interest to see how they transfer. I’ve personally verified classes like ENG101/102, College Algebra, etc transfer into our local (Texas) colleges exactly as they’d sound. You’d ask for the contact info for the Transcript or Transfer specialist (or some similar job title), to find out if they transfer. Some colleges may have a transfer pathway already setup as well. 

If you’re interested in transferring FROM your current program TO ASU for a 4 year degree, they have a Transfer Pathway page to help students plan their degree efficiently.

Q: I tried to login but I get an error saying my ID doesn’t exist

A: Be sure you are using the “Log in” link on the black bar on the ea.asu.edu or hs.ea.asu.edu pages, rather than the “sign in” link in the top far right corner. This is a known issue that has nothing to do with the portal change or the beta program. We tested it with adult ASURITE ID’s that had not changed portals and weren’t in the beta program and the same thing happened to them. It predates this change. Use the correct login link and you should land at the Dashboard as you normally would.

If you have a brand new ASURITE ID, it sometimes takes another 24hrs to log in once you receive it. If you still can’t login 24hrs after receipt of the ID, I would contact them. earned@asu.edu

Why we Love the ASU EA and HS Programs

  • ASU’s Earned Admissions (EA) and High School (HS) programs provide low-cost, high-reward courses at a reasonable price of $400/course, paid at the end if you like the grade. Plus a $25 ID Fee normally paid upfront, but they’re waived for the Beta program for those who tell them they are with HS4CC.
  • There are no other fees.
  • Books, as always, are included free online.
  • Labs are either virtual or use common materials found at home.
  • As with all Earned Admissions courses, you only pay at the end if you like the grade and would like it on a transcript.
  • No placement test like TSI / ACCUPLACER, just sign up for a course and take it
  • No paperwork to turn in, or transcripts to send. Signing up for an ASURITE ID with the college is quick and easy. Once you have an ID, you can log in and sign up for classes. (this is often a 2-3 day process)
  • Open to any age – no restrictions. If the child can handle the work, they can take the course.
  • Course Prerequisites are a suggestion, not a restriction. If the student is able to do the higher-level work, he or she can take the course.
  • I love the self-paced courses, in particular, because they enable us to weave an extra course or two into my kids’ community college schedule without impacting the grades. We can adjust and spend more or less time on the self-paced classes, based on the demands of the less flexible community college courses. We can also squeeze an extra college class into a semester or between semesters without jeopardizing grades in any of the courses.

The “REAL” ACE College List

College credit that doesn’t come from a college? Yep! It’s a thing- but where can you use it?  The ACE College List isn’t the best list to use. I have a “real” list that’s more accurate.

Non-college-issued credit comes from many places – we even have a list of 30 ways to earn college credit in high school, and most of them don’t come from a college. So what makes these non-college classes worth college credit?

Most of the time these classes are “worth” college credit because their curriculum or exam has been evaluated by a third party called ACE American Council on Education.

ACE is the largest and primary evaluator of workplace learning, military training, credit by exam (CLEP, AP) and every other kind of alternative credit in the United States.  If you can find a college that accepts ACE credit, you can REALLY save some serious tuition costs.  Some ACE credit is free, some are exceptionally low cost (under $10 per credit), and even the most expensive ACE credit is almost less than what you’ll pay for rack rate tuition at your local college. As such, knowing where you can use ACE credit is the million-dollar question.

Some colleges will accept “all ACE credit” – that is to say, if your credit appears on an ACE transcript, they will give you college credit. The number of colleges in this category is very small. The big thing to pay attention to in this category are the golden few who have guaranteed partnership agreements with colleges. My estimation is that there are fewer than 25 colleges who take “all” your ACE credit. If you’ve heard people talking about “The Big 3” they are in this category and used widely among homeschool families because you can DIY an entire degree at home these schools and they are Regionally Accredited (the gold standard) so they represent the best option to craft a degree from scratch DIY style:

      1. Thomas Edison State University, NJ
      2. Excelsior College, NY
      3. Charter Oak State College, CT

Some colleges will accept some “ACE credit” but don’t go so far as to say “all” and will consider, but not guarantee, acceptance. My estimation is fewer than 250 fall into this category. Colleges in this category will vary and may not have the right accreditation for many occupations.

2,000 colleges are part of the “ACE Network” which ACE publishes the list of colleges who will “consider” your work for college credit. In no way, shape, or form do 2,000 colleges award credit for ACE. Being in the network does not mean they award credit.  In some cases, colleges appear on that list because they issue ACE credit for their own courses – that’s not the same thing!


What does it mean to be part of the ACE Network?

As I found out with my oldest son in 2013, being a part of the ACE Network does NOT mean that the college will review ACE credit for you- it might mean that they teach it! Our local community college is on the list, so imagine my surprise when they denied 27 of my son’s ACE credits in transfer (ALEKS math and Straighterline). I decided to probe deeper (they were on the list, after all!) and found that our local community college offered a carpentry course through the continuing education (non-credit) department, and successful completion of that course led to 3 ACE credits in carpentry. In other words, our community college was on the list because they taught a course that generated ACE credit, not because they awarded credit for ACE work. Yes, I appealed. No, he didn’t receive credit. Ouch.

RULE 1:  Don’t assume colleges on the ACE Network list will award your teen college credit for their ACE courses.

As I appealed my son’s credit decision, I grew frustrated with advisor after advisor who didn’t know what ACE was or what kind of credit he’d earned. I shouldn’t have been too frustrated because I remember myself having advised students at the community college for about 10 years before I knew what CLEP was….or that we were a testing center. Eventually, when I found someone (the Registrar) who knew what ACE credit was, she was able to explain to me why our community college was on the list and told me all about the carpentry course. Scenarios have played out like this dozens of times among our membership. I frequently hear of parents being bounced around to 4-5 people just trying to find out if the college accepts Straighterline credit!

If you’re constantly told that they don’t know what ACE credit is, or if they accept it, or want you to “submit your transcripts first” before giving you information, you can ask if they award credit for military training. Military training usually appears on an ACE transcript, so even though your teen won’t have military training for evaluation, this could be a “clue” that ACE credit may be awarded. Again, we’re trying to predict based on an incomplete picture, but how colleges behave in one situation is usually a good indication of how they’ll do other things – so it’s worth asking if you’re out of options.

RULE 2:  Don’t assume that college personnel are familiar with ACE credit. ACE credit is probably the least frequent type of credit they encounter. You’ll have to be patient and persistent.

As someone constantly tracking this type of information, I am so frustrated when I can’t share a “list” with our membership. Asking for a list is a frequent question, and frankly, there isn’t one. So, instead, I’ll share what I know- and you can work from there.  I have found that several ACE credit sources have credit transfer partnerships with specific colleges. For example, Saylor Academy has partnership agreements with 20 colleges. Those 20 colleges have agreed (in writing) to accept Saylor’s courses for college credit. That list is a great list to use as a starting point- which is to say that if those 20 colleges accept Saylor courses, they probably will accept other ACE evaluated course provider’s courses! The Alternative Credit Project partnered with 40 schools, and Straighterline another 100+.

RULE 3:  When one ACE credit source has a partnership agreement with a college, it is reasonable to infer that the same college will also accept other ACE credit sources.  

If you visit each ACE provider’s website, you can find their partnership agreements. Here is a small sample of ACE providers:

Study.com partnership colleges

Sophia.org partnership colleges

edX partnership colleges (includes graduate level partnerships)

Saylor Academy partnership colleges

Straighterline partnership colleges

As you browse the lists, you’ll see that there is some overlap of schools, but there are many listings that appear on only one list. It is my observation, that if a college appears on any list above, you’ll have an excellent shot at getting them to accept your other sources of ACE credit- at the very least, you should try.

So, the following list is the list I created by merging all known partner college relationships with ACE credit providers I could find.  In other words- this list, not the ACE Network list, is probably as close to any “real ACE list” as you’ll ever find, and it contains about 145 colleges (not 2,000).
