College Plus! Questions

 

 

I had a couple College Plus! questions I am going to answer..

 

Homesteadinthemaking asked about scholarships and financial aid. You can read on the College Plus website for info on this here:


 

madiantin.blogspot.com asked about Emily’s schedule and resources books. Emily works about 40 hours or more a week as a nanny to a set of twins. She has one weekday off and the weekends off. A typical work day looks like this for her:

 

She gets up at 4:30 or 5:00 am and spends a couple hours with Bible time and study time. Then she leaves for work. She is typically gone for about 10 plus hours a day. During the day she is usually able to get in a couple hours of study time (sometimes 3 hours) when the twins nap.  Then she comes home, eats, and will do a little more study and goes to bed rather early. On her weekends she spends pretty much the whole time studying. Typically all CLEP tests are scheduled for her one week day off. 

 

As for resource materials… her coach sends her a list of resource books and websites for each up coming test well enough in advance so if we have to order anything we can do it before she begins studying for it. She also uses the REA CLEP examine prep books. 

 

I will be happy to answer any other questions that come in. You can also email questions at: crystal@thefamilyhomestead.com

  1. I was thinking that when I was in college, there was a limit on how many clep credits you could use towards a degree. Have you verified all that with your "final" school where she will graduate? Just a thought...

  2. Hi Crystal,


    Thanks for helping us spread the word about CollegePlus!

    To answer your other reader's question, we've had numerous students graduate through the "final" college, which accepts as much CLEP as will fit into the student's degree track. So students don't need to worry that they are taking CLEPs without the guarantee that the exams will count for credit.

    Keep up the good work, Crystal!

    My good gravy, your daughter is one dedicated, hard-working girl! Kudos to you and her for that gift! It's certainly bringing her blessings in the form of passed CLEPs. =)


    Congratulations to her, and thank you for helping me think that not only might it be possible for my children to do this, but it might be possible for me to do it also. =)
