How do students at adopting colleges access Propero courses?
Typically, an academic advisor at the adopting institution will have referred a student into a Propero course for any number of reasons: schedule fit, mastery fit (e.g., student has done prior coursework in the topic and simply needs a refresher to earn credit), or a required course is overenrolled and the student needs an approved alternative to stay on track for degree completion without seeking credits outside the institution. The student will be directed to a site where they select their course and then purchase access through a custom storefront on myPearsonStore.com.
Once they purchase their course, they receive and email with their course credentials and are ready to begin!
How do students receive credit for the courses?
Once a student has successfully finished a Propero course, which means they earn a 70% or higher, Pearson notifies ACE of the student’s success. The student then orders a transcript from ACE and takes the transcript to their institution. The institution then awards the student credit.
What is the term length/subscription for a Propero course?
While Propero courses vary in length, many of the general education and introductory college courses are designed around a 12-lesson plan that most students can reasonably complete in 12 weeks. Students are able to request two 5-week extensions if needed, with up to a maximum of 22 weeks to complete a course.
How many courses are available? Where can I find them?
Propero features a growing library of general education and introductory college courses, as well as workforce education courses designed to get people back to work and advancing in their careers.
Our course catalog can be found on the Courses page and is updated on an ongoing basis.
