Price and Monetary Incentive System

Will all schools accept these credits?


These credits are the highest caliber of college credits that can be obtained. There is no foolproof credit. Every college has the right to deny a college credit. We called sixty schools to inquire if they would transfer such credits. 85% answered in the affirmative and the rest said they only verify the specific credit once the student is enrolled. Reach out to us and we can contact a specific school for you. The following schools confirmed they will accept these credits: Arizona State University Baruch College Bergen Community College Binghamton University Brandeis University Brown University Cal Arts California State University Collin College Northridge (CSUN) FIT FIU Florida State University George Mason University Georgia State University Grand Valley University Harvard University Indiana University Kennesaw University Lehigh University LMU Loyola University Macaulay Honors College Miami Dade College Michigan State University Monmouth University Northeastern University Northwestern University Nova Community College NYIT NYU Ohio State University Oklahoma State University Penn State University Purdue University Queens College Rhode Island School of Art and Design Ringling College Of Art And Design Rutgers University Seton Hall St. John’s University State College of Florida Stony Brook University Temple University Touro College Towson University Tulane University University of Central Florida University of Colorado Boulder University of Florida University of South Florida University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign University of Iowa University of Kentucky University of Louisville University of Nebraska-Lincoln University of North Texas University of Texas at Dallas University of Virginia University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee University of Wisconsin- Madison Wayne State University William Patterson University University of Virginia Virginia Tech University Yale University




How much are college credits worth?


These credits are private college credits and are much more valuable than public college credits. This $500 per credit is at half price of the average private college credit! See chart:




What category subjects are these credits counted towards?


These would count as elective credits in another college. All students have a quota of elective credits to fill in order to graduate. If a teen majors in a Jewish subject, these credits would be course-specific credits rather than elective credits.




Can this be done as a one-credit course so it is a smaller time commitment from the teens?


YU is only offering a 2 credit course since a 2 credit course has much higher chances of being accepted at another university than a 1 credit course.
