American Honors charges community college rates for top-notch courses, sets students up to transfer into a respected bachelor’s degree program. What if you, or your college age child, could earn a degree from a big-name university without the big-name sticker shock that goes with it? Changing the formula for college affordability is the goal of the American Honors program created by startup Quad Learning. The idea is to combine the cost structure of a community college, and two years of courses taught online by community college professors, with a rigorous academic curriculum that sets students up to transfer into a traditional on-campus program at a respected four-year university.
