Student success is our goal, and we are accomplishing this objective through the following initiatives.       

Our Lumerit Scholar™ program addresses a comprehensive change in methodology for earning a bachelor’s degree. Designed for both full- and part-time students, the program begins with you and your Lumerit Academic Advissr. Together you will develop a degree plan that takes into account your goals, life situation, learning style, costs, major, and college selection. Students have access to a wide variety of academic curricula, including competency courses and testing, a professional studies track that uses a portfolio assessment, online classes, undergraduate research, prior learning assessment, and much more. Students earn up to 90 credits through Lumerit Education before transferring to a college of their choice for final degree completion. Through this college degree journey, all Lumerit Scholars are supported with an academic coach who has a personal vested interest in their success.

While traditional students are sitting in classrooms or taking online classes at the pace of the slowest participant, a Lumerit Scholar is completing his or her college degree while out in the real world working, pursuing their passions, and gaining valuable work/life exposure. The Lumerit Scholar experience propels our community of students light years ahead of their competition. 

 

Degree Manager™ Using our Degree Manager software platform, a Lumerit academic advisor works with each student to develop a personalized college degree plan that takes into account personal goals, available time, costs, degree major, college selection and any other important life factors. Degree Manager provides the student with an opportunity to explore the many options for earning college credits while being able to pursue their goals. Students will conclude with a customized course progression plan with a detailed listing of the credits needed for the degree and at each student’s selected school. Here are a few of the Degree Manager benefits:

  • Get a plan that maximizes flexibility and freedom, allowing the student to pursue his or her work and passions.
  • Significantly reduce or eliminate college debt.
  • Identify new and exciting ways to earn college credit that will transfer to the destination college.
  • Save tens of thousands of dollars on earning a college degree.

Nancy B.B.A., Humanities | There are 40 million adults in the USA with college credits and no degree. It wasn’t until Nancy’s second child graduated high school that Nancy thought seriously about going back to college. Within a year of enrolling, Nancy finished her degree, landed a full-time teaching position, and began working on her master’s degree. 

“I always wanted to finish my degree but didn’t know how. My coach guided me step-by-step through the process and allowed me to maintain my hectic schedule while working on my degree. Lumerit Education made this all possible. I am so excited to be done.”

Aron J.B.A., Computer Information Systems | After teaching himself HTML and CSS and creating some websites for fun, Aron realized if he wanted to be prepared to land his dream job, he would need two things: his bachelor’s degree and actual work experience.

“Not only will I have earned my degree in Computer Information Systems, but I will also have over 2,000 hours of coding experience, an extensive portfolio, and tons of experience—working with tight deadlines, under different management styles, and on a variety of projects.”
