Grace College Begins Partnership with StraighterLine

Thursday, June 1, 2017

Grace College has entered a new partnership with StraighterLine, the fastest-growing provider of alternative academic credit.  The two organizations seek to offer students an affordable, convenient pathway toward bachelor degree completion.  The partnership will allow students in Grace’s Opportunities for Adult Learners (GOAL) program to complete the general education courses necessary to fulfill their bachelor’s degree from the comfort of their own home, completely online.

According to StraighterLine Founder and CEO Burck Smith, “Grace College’s degree completion program aligns well with our mission to help students affordably complete general education courses online and guarantee credit transfer to applicable degree programs.  By partnering with StraighterLine, Grace College is helping nontraditional learners complete the prerequisites they need to get on the fast track to degree completion.”

President of Grace College, Dr. Bill Katip, commented, “We are very pleased to partner with StraighterLine as they share our commitment to help nontraditional students complete their degree as well as our dedication to high-quality college education.”

StraighterLine is a designated EQUIP partner (Educational Quality through Innovative Partnerships) by the U.S. Department of Education and all StraighterLine credit-bearing courses are approved by the ACE (American Council on Education).

Grace College’s adult degree completion program (GOAL) leads to a Bachelor of Science in Management, Business Administration, or Human Services. The program serves those who have interrupted their higher education for work, family or other commitments. GOAL is specifically designed for adult learners who desire to complete their degree in as little as 16 months while maintaining full-time life responsibilities.  For more information, visit
