Coopersmith Career Consulting

From Degree Forum Wiki


Coopersmith offers over 200 NCCRS courses that are accepted at TESU, Excelsior, and Ana G Mendez University. These 3 schools are regionally accredited. Courses at Coopersmith cost $50 per credit (English courses cost an additional $50 per class). They are a great option for upper level credit without papers (unless it's an English class). Proctoring is available through ProctorU for $18 or $30 per class on their website or classes purchased through Smarter by 1 Degree come with free proctoring in Zoom 7 days a week.

Course Structure[edit]

Courses are self-paced with a syllabus, PowerPoint study guide, end of the course review, practice questions, and a textbook recommendation (some courses include additional study materials). Once you feel you have mastered the concepts, you schedule your proctored exam. Most students do not feel the need to purchase any recommended textbook.

You pass a class if you score 70% or more on the exam (English classes include assignments). This is a pass/fail class. Courses are proctored with ProctorU for $18 or $30/class. If you would like to do proctoring for free in Zoom instead of ProctorU, sign up for Coopersmith classes at Smarter by 1 Degree. The exams include multiple choice questions and 4-6 "open-ended" questions to answer. The answers only need to be a couple of sentences long. As long as you correctly use the keywords mentioned in the study materials, students report not having an issue with short answers.
