Non-Collegiate Course Provider Agreements

Charter Oak State College maintains the following non-collegiate course provider agreements:

  • AP
  • CLEP
  • CSM Learn
  • DSST
  • StraighterLine
  • Saylor
  • Sophia
  • Maalot

All other courses, programs or exams offered by alternative educational providers (non-regionally accredited entities) recommended for credit by NCCRS or ACE will not be accepted in transfer unless an agreement with the provider and Charter Oak exists. If a non-collegiate course provider would like to form a partnership agreement with Charter Oak, they must complete the following process:

  1. Contact the Registrar’s Office (Associate Registrar, Paul Morganti,
  2. Complete and submit the “Non-Collegiate Course Provider Agreement Review Booklet” provided by the Associate Registrar.

Once the Non-Collegiate Course Provider Agreement Review Booklet is submitted, the Registrar’s Office will review the request and contact the provider with the next steps needed to complete the agreement process.

Note: Charter Oak State College will also not accept credit in transfer for online self-paced courses originating from TEL Learning, even if the credit is transcripted by one of their Regionally Accredited College Partners. TEL Learning is a non-collegiate course provider and is subject to the Charter Oak Non-Collegiate course provider agreement policy for alternative educational providers. Because Charter Oak does not have an agreement with TEL Learning, credits earned via their platform are not transferable.
