We Make Getting Started Easy

Take a step toward independence and call today.

Starting college doesn’t have to be difficult. Unlike some traditional colleges and universities, we help you every step of the way. We make the entire admissions process simple and less stressful for you.

Don’t know how to find your high school or college transcripts? We’ll find them for you—and even pay for your transcript fees. Worried about registering for classes? We’ll take care of that, too. Textbooks, orientation, financial aid? We’ve got you covered. All you have to do is reach out to us.

“When I enrolled, the financial aid process was pretty easy because they help you through the whole process. It wasn’t just, ‘Oh hey, you have to go apply for this, and this, and this, and when you’re done bring back your stuff,’ like most colleges do. This one was a lot easier because they walk you through.”
