    Modern States Education Alliance is offering a high-quality path to free college credit, the Freshman Year for Free. The program offers everyone tuition-free online courses with free on-line textbooks leading to real college credit at more than 2,900 major colleges and universities. The goal of the program is to make college more accessible and affordable for high school students, college students and adult learners, including active duty military personnel, their families, and veterans.

    The Freshman Year for Free program includes online courses in over 30 subjects to prepare students for the major “Advanced Placement” (AP) or “College Level Examination Program” (CLEP). The courses were developed in partnership with MOOC platform edX and are taught by some of the world’s leading professors from Johns Hopkins, Columbia, Rutgers, MIT, Purdue and elsewhere.

    Modern States, a New York-based charitable organization, covers the cost of the $89 CLEP exam fee as well as reimbursing students for test center fees, typically $25. According to the College Board, more than 2,000 traditional colleges and universities already offer credit to students who pass AP and CLEP tests. Students can take one course or many courses from Modern States, and then – by passing the AP or CLEP exams – can begin with up to a full year’s worth of credit after they enroll in traditional college

    Since its launch in 2017, the program has attracted over 150,000 students of all ages and backgrounds with a pass rate of 75 percent which is well above the national average. Each Modern States free course and exam passed can save students and their families $1,000 to $2,000 in college costs, according to Modern States.
