How does Study.com work?

Study.com allows students to pay a membership fee and then take low cost, video-based courses that have been evaluated and recommended for college credit by the American Council on Education. Credits earned through approved Study.com courses can be applied to bachelor’s degree programs at Peirce. Learn more

I’ve been working in my field for a long time and I think I already know a lot of the material. Do I still have to take the course?

For many Study.com courses, you can skip through the parts you already know, thanks to a placement test at the start of the course. This will allow you to finish the course modules faster and get right to the proctored exam. Peirce also offers several options for prior learning assessment, which can save time and money. The College offers a range of exams that can award you credit for college-level knowledge, and also accepts all ACE-approved CLEP exams. For more test-out options for subject areas you already know, download our Guide to Saving Time & Money.
