TEL Library Announces Partnership with Greenville University


OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- "We are honored that the GU administration and faculty have reviewed our courses and agreed to award college credit to students who complete those courses successfully," says TEL Executive Director, Dr. Rob Reynolds. "Our commitment as an organization is to make it possible for everyone in the U.S. to have equitable access to college studies. By partnering with regionally accredited universities like Greenville, we're able to help students begin or continue their college journey, at a price they can afford, and to receive course credit that can be transferred to other institutions."

Through TEL's College Courses On-Demand program, students can earn college credit for as little as $44 per semester hour.

Reynolds says that a big part of TEL's mission is to make the process of taking college courses both affordable and simple. With the Courses on Demand Program, students enroll online to take TEL courses, which have been reviewed and approved for college credit by partner universities. Upon successful completion of a course, a partner university awards credit to the student and provides a transcript reflecting the letter grade earned. Credits from these courses count towards a degree at the partner university, or can generally be transferred to another regionally accredited college or university.

"GU is everything we look for in a university partner," says Jae Strickland, TEL's Chief Academic Officer. "They are committed to academic quality but also focused on helping students develop lives of character and service."

Greenville University's Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Brian T. Hartley, explains that "Partnering with TEL Library allows us to assist them in transcripting students using our expertise while allowing those same students a chance to see Greenville University in action. This is one of many new partnerships that allow us to do more together than either entity could accomplish on its own."
