Launches Lowest-Cost Path to College Credit

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — is proud to announce the launch of Education Portal Academy, which provides students with free courses, free test prep, and the fastest and lowest-cost path to college credit. For the thousands of students around the country suffering from budget cuts, tuition hikes and overcrowded classes, Education Portal Academy offers a solution to their most frustrating problems.

Education Portal Academy provides free, online courses that prepare students to test out of general education requirements such as psychology and calculus. Starting with our first course, Introductory Psychology, Education Portal Academy prepares students for the thirty-three College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, offered by the College Board (which also sponsors the SAT and AP exams). These exams cost just $77 and award credit for an entire course. Education Portal Academy courses can also be used by independent learners, educators, and traditional students.

The courses, designed specifically for the online learner, are divided into short video lessons that allow students to structure their learning at their own pace. Each lesson includes multiple choice quiz questions that learners can use to assess their understanding and convenient time-stamping that allows learners to jump to key parts of the lesson.

In the past, the site has broken down barriers to education faced by its 4+ million monthly visitors by providing accurate information about degree and career paths and funding scholarships and other programs.
