7 Tips for Earning College Credit this Summer

#7 Tips for Earning College Credit this Summer @TheHomeScholar7 Tips for Earning College Credit this Summer
A few summers ago, my children worked for one month and saved our family $56,000.  How did they do it?  By homeschooling college in their spare time!  Not bad for a summer job! You can also save a fortune in college expenses using a few very simple but lesser-known money-saving strategies.

Earning college credit is not just for college kids. Some students earn college credit by homeschooling college while they're still in  high school.  Summer is  a great time to earn college credits. My children homeschooled  college the summer between junior year and senior year, before applying to college.  It helped provide outside documentation of our academic preparation, and it also helped our children get place appropriately in college classes when admitted. They earned all of their college credits through CLEP tests over the summer, and it's something that you can do, too.

  4.  Report Score - have scores sent to the colleges where they'll apply.
