Available Test Prep Courses:


Available Micro-Credential Courses:

NOTE: Students and alumni can request one microcredential at a time; once that micro-credential is passed (we offer test preparation for free, but make sure that you realize there is a financial commitment to registering for the exams for each of these), then you can request access to additional micro-credential test preparation. We cannot grant students or alumni access to multiple credentials at once without proof of testing and earning the previous credential.

When should I request test prep?

We require that students request test prep as a means to safeguard you; it’s important we make sure you are taking advantage of prep resources at the time that makes the most sense for you. 

Use this timeline to help you determine how far in advance you should be requesting test prep. This timeline will vary based on the exam you are taking and the type of prep you request (on-demand vs. live online).




Success is earned, but the ability to prepare should be equal and available to all. That is our commitment to your future if you aspire to go to graduate, professional, law school or pass certification exams.
