YouTube unveils new program for students to earn college credits • TechCrunch

YouTube announced today that it has teamed up with Arizona State University and educational video company Crash Course to launch a new program that allows students to earn college credit. The Google-owned company says its new program, called College Foundations, is designed to create an affordable and accessible way to earn college credit.

As of today, students can register for four courses commencing March 7, 2023 and eligible for transfer credit. The program does not require applications or a minimum GPA for enrollment. It includes general first-year college courses, including Intro to Human Communication, Rhetoric and Composition, Real World College Math, and U.S. History to 1865.

The program is expected to expand to 12 available courses by January 2025 to allow students to receive college credit for an entire first year of college. There is a $25 fee if a student chooses to apply and begin courses, and a $400 fee to receive tuition for each course. Anyone who registers before March 7 will receive a € 50 discount. Courses can be taken as many times as necessary until the student is satisfied with their grade. The credit can then be used at institutions that accept college credit from Arizona State University.

College Foundations is an extension of an existing Study Hall partnership between Arizona State University, YouTube and Crash Course, an education channel with more than 14 million subscribers and founded by John and Hank Green.
