A new path to higher education that begins on YouTube! – YouTube Official Blog

Starting today, students can sign up here for four “College Foundations” courses which start on March 7, 2023 and offer eligibility for transfer credit. This suite encompasses the most common first-year college courses at many higher-education institutions: English Composition, College Math, US History and Human Communication. Developed and taught by the same faculty who conduct research and teach students on ASU’s campuses, the lessons combine ASU’s academic excellence with Crash Courses’s compelling storytelling — all on YouTube’s wide-reaching platform. Anyone can get started — no applications or minimum GPAs needed.

Study Hall is slated to expand to 12 available courses by January 2025. This will give learners a chance to receive credit for an entire first year of college from a top public research university at a time and place that works best for them. And they’re available to watch at no cost! There is a $25 fee if the learner elects to sign up and begin coursework, and an optional $400 fee to receive college credit for each course. Learners who register before March 7, 2023 will receive special scholarship pricing of $350 per course — less than one-third of the average course cost at a public four-year university for in-state students and nearly 90% lower than the average course cost of a private four-year university.* Each course can be taken as often as needed until the learner is satisfied with their grade. This credit can then be used at any of the hundreds of institutions that accept credits from ASU.
