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 our Central Registrar's Office where students have access to tools and academic resources.   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 the world as their classroom  including competency courses,  a professional studies track that uses a portfolio assessment, faculty led online classes, undergraduate research,self paced courses,  prior learning assessment, and much more. Students may earn up to 90 credits through the Lumerit Scholar program before transferring to the 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  taking classes at the pace of the slowest participant, a Lumerit Scholar is completing their 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 Global Digital Classroom , our Registrar's Office works with each student to develop a personalized course progression 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 receive  a customized course progression plan with a detailed listing of the credits needed for the degree for their target institution. Here are a few of the Degree Manager benefits:

  • Freedom, allowing students to pursue their work and passions.
     
  • Elimination of student debt.
  • Detailed course road map allowing students to take classes at their own pace
  • Flexible course scheduling and course length ; from four to twelve week terms
     
  • Save tens of thousands of dollars -  earning the same degree at the college of your choice

Flexible Terms - Ranging from four to twelve weeks.

Students have the flexibility to have each class be their own term length.  One class may be eight weeks, while another might be four week and the third may be twelve.

While a traditional  full-time student will earn up to 30 credits during an academic year, the full-time Lumerit Scholar may earn  60 credits in a calendar year, depending on their proficiency, available time, and personal goals. Credits are earned at the natural pace of each student. An example of a  schedule of earned credits might look like:

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.”
