Frequently Asked Questions

  • How is this tuition discount possible with TBI?

    TBI looks for innovative ways to help non-traditional students finish their degree. They partner with organizations that provide non-collegiate alternative credit programs that meet the academic rigor equivalent to college credit. OnlineDegree.com is one of those organizations and has 15 college-level courses that have been reviewed and verified by TBI. The courses provide 44 units of available credit that could be applied towards your degree…tuition-free. In addition to credit, they’ve also offered all OnlineDegree.com enrolled students a 5% discount on tuition you can apply towards your degree.

  • Is OnlineDegree.com Really Free?

    Yep! It’s free to take as many courses as you want. Our goal is to make college more affordable and approachable for the millions of people that want to go to school. We’ve made sure it’s accessible to everyone regardless of their financial situation. Enroll in as many as you’d like.

  • What are the terms or limitations for TBI’s tuition discount?

    All students’ transferring from OnlineDegree.com to Taylor Business Institute’s degree programs will receive a 5% tuition discount. To be eligible for this discount the student must: 1. Maintain, at a minimum, a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA), 2. Maintain satisfactory attendance as stipulated in Taylor Business Institute’s or the classroom instructor’s attendance policy. At the end of each quarter a student’s grades and attendance will be evaluated for compliance with the above requirements. Students who meet the above stated requirements, will be eligible for the tuition discount in their next enrolling quarter.

  • Are There Prerequisities or Things I Need To Learn Before Enrolling?

    No! All of our college-level courses are introductory and meant for beginners without backgrounds in the particular subjects. You don’t need to prepare, or take anything before.  As long as you have your GED/High School Diploma, you can just register, choose the courses you want, and begin learning.

  • Are There Any 3rd-Party Fees?

    It’s completely free to take all of the courses, the textbooks, and generate a transcript. However, when you take a final exam, a 3rd-party online proctoring service, RPNow, needs to monitor you to make sure there’s no cheating. It’s standard practice for all online testing at the college-level. We’ve negotiated the fee on your behalf, and they will only charge you a small fee of $9. OnlineDegree.com though doesnt charge you anything for taking as many courses as you’d like…no fees or tuition, ever, period.

  • Are There Schedules or Set Class Times for OnlineDegree.com Courses?

    Nope! No class schedules, and no fixed times. Our courses are available anytime, and completely self-paced. We understand how busy adults are, and we’ve created our system to accomodate anyone’s schedule. Our system always keeps track of your progress…grab a sandwich, go see a movie, etc. When you come back online, you’ll pick up right where you left off.

  • Which OnlineDegree.com courses could apply towards my degree at TBI?

    You can view the course mapping here. Although 15 courses at OnlineDegree.com can be accepted for a total of 44 credits, your particular major/degree will dictate which courses can specifically be applied though. Check with an academic advisor at TBI.  You can also view our general Transfer Guide for more details.

  • Does This Guarantee I’ll Be Accepted at an Eventual University?

    No, no one can guarantee your acceptance other than the actual university where you’re applying. They always have the final decision. Each university has different guidelines and requirements on how they admit students into their school. This can include GPA, SAT/ACT scores, extracurricular activities you’ve participated in, etc. At many universities, transfer students have higher rates of acceptance vs freshman enrolling out of high school. That means earning units at a community college or through OnlineDegree.com can potentially increase your odds of getting into the school you want. Ask the eventual university where you’re applying to find out what things they take into consideration.

  • Does OnlineDegree.com “grant credit”?

    Remember that OnlineDegree.com is not a university and does not and cannot “grant credit” – the option to grant credit always belongs to the college or university and will further depend on whether a course fits into your degree program. Our goal at OnlineDegree.com is to help you receive credit at a university by taking our free college-level courses. We want to save students time and money to get their degree. To do that, we work with a number of participating accredited universities who’ve agreed to recognize our courses directly, and our courses have also earned a recommendation for credit from the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) who’s recommendations are considered by over 1400 universities and colleges nationwide in their network.

  • What if I’m Already Enrolled at a University?

    You should first contact your university and see what their policy is for obtaining credits while you’re enrolled.   If so, direct them to the NCCRS website to inquire if they’ll accept the course(s) you’d like to take towards your current major.

  • What If I’m an International Student Outside of the United States?

    Sorry, we’re not yet able to accept international students living outside of the United States.  Currently, OnlineDegree.com is available to U.S. citizens (living in or outside of the U.S.), or international students living within the United States.

    We’re working on it, and we’ll update the site soon when things have changed.

  • Can I combine received units from OnlineDegree.com with other units when I enroll at TBI?

    Check with an academic advisor at TBI. OnlineDegree.com has 44 units available through it’s courses that could apply.  You’ll want to inquire with a TBI academic advisor though to confirm which courses could best apply to your specific major or degree of interest, and how they combine with other units you’ve earned.
