CSM and College Credit

The most supportive, least expensive road to college math credit

Many colleges accept the CSM Certificate as math or elective credit. This type of transfer credit is called Prior Learning Credit, and its use is expanding rapidly across the country.

College math requirements are one of the largest hurdles to college access and completion - many students fail required math courses, and others don't even enroll in college because of their fear of math.

Using a CSM Certificate for college credit is innovative, supportive, and inexpensive.

Did you know?

Students who bring Prior Learning Credit (like CSM) into their degree program are 2.5 times as likely to graduate!

What People Say about CSM

"CSM made the process of completing the Quantitative Literacy requirement for my bachelor's degree absolutely painless. The course creates a learning environment that guarantees success. Just going through the course validates existing knowledge and teaches new skills.

It was easy. It was fun. Couldn't recommend highly enough for anyone with math anxiety or test anxiety."

Liria Mersini, Student
Thomas Edison State University (TESU)

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was very different from the other online courses that I had been taking during my journey to get a bachelor's degree. The different method of learning worked well for me and it really clicked. It was a welcome change to the traditional learning methods that I'd experienced and I can't wait for CSM to develop more courses worth college credit. I would definitely take them!"
