CollegePlus Reimagined as Lumerit Scholar
What inspired the change?
(This is part 7 in our series. If you missed our first post, you can find it here.)
In the midst of our CollegePlus studies, the program underwent a major transformation. So we decided to “interrupt our regularly scheduled programming” to explain this change. We’ll start with a little history…
IN THE BEGINNING, COLLEGEPLUS….
CollegePlus started helping students earn their bachelor’s degrees for a fraction of the cost of traditional college back in 2004. They introduced students to CLEP and instructed them how to earn flexible, transferable credit.
Since that time, CollegePlus has undergone a multitude of changes, responding to student feedback and the myriad changes taking place in higher education. Each change brought new benefits to students and increased the effectiveness of the program.
Recognizing the importance of equipping students to become leaders who positively impact society, CollegePlus added a leadership component to the program (with the help of Dr. Jeff Myers). They enhanced the effectiveness of coaches by cross-training them in academic and life coaching. They added a Student Life department to create a thriving student community.
Throughout all of these changes, the primary goal was to help students launch into life without the financial baggage of college debt and with the credentials and experiences they need to be successful.
