OUTLIER is a new online education platform that offers comprehensive, engaging, and beautifully-produced online courses that earn students real college credit. Their aim is to make higher education more accessible, equitable and affordable.

The university-level courses are cinematically filmed and taught by some of the most celebrated educators in the world, including professors from Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Cornell. Students have access to 1-on-1 tutoring, AI-proctored assessments, dynamically-generated problem sets, and cutting-edge, active learning techniques.

OUTLIER are pilot launching two courses on September 9th 2019: Calculus I and Introduction to Psychology, both of which give students the opportunity to earn transferable college credit in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh. Each course costs $400, about one-fifth of the cost of a traditional college course, and successful students will be able to transfer 3 credits to any school of their choice.
