TEL for Homeschool


As part of our commitment to affordable education, TEL offers an affordable, all-inclusive solution for homeschool learners: college courses on demand for as little as $44 per credit hour including course and registration fees.


This price covers all course materials, instructional services, technology, and support. Students completing these courses successfully receive college credit from one of our regionally accredited institutional partners.


How Does It Work?Courses on Demand

How It Works: College Credit

Homeschool students earn college credit through TEL’s curriculum via our partnerships with regionally accredited colleges and universities. Through this program, students enroll in TEL online courses that our partner universities have reviewed to ensure the course meets the college’s academic standards and aligns with its institutional mission. If a student passes the course, the partner college awards credit for the course, and provides the student with a transcript reflecting a letter grade.

Credits from these courses count towards a degree at the partner college, or can generally be transferred to another regionally accredited college or university. Courses may vary somewhat by partner college based on the partner college’s academic standards and institutional mission. Students are not eligible for financial aid or partner college support services (e.g. counseling services, professional development activities, internships).

Course Selection
