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 an email within two days providing 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, the student can register his or her completion directly with ACE. The student will need to submit a request for transcript review with ACE, which may take several days. After ACE approves the course, the student will receive an email from ACE. Students can then order an updated transcript.
What is the term length/subscription for a Propero course?
While Propero courses are available for 16 weeks, 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 an extension if needed.
