"I fell upon Smarter By 1 Degree while trying to deal with a local Junior College. My daughter has been in the program for 9 months now and it has been a godsend!! She's already completed 28 units. I love the freedom of self-pacing, no busy work, and lots of support. This program is a dream come true for my kids who weren't sure they could do college. We love Smarter By 1 Degree!!!"
