51. May I join the A.A. track even if I am already a sophomore, junior or senior in high school or home school, or already graduated from high school?

2020-07-29T20:50:07+00:00

Yes. Just send us your transcript(s) or a listing of your prior studies and we can help you determine where you would best begin the A.A. track and what courses you would need to complete. Keep in mind, high school courses do not ordinarily qualify for college credit (nor towards an A.A.), but they generally will count towards obtaining your high school diploma (or home school equivalent).

50. If I transfer from the High School or College track to the AA track, will my prior payments and discounts be lost?

2020-07-29T20:49:43+00:00

Here is how that works: we total all payments made for the Great Books courses for college credit, and any payments for our Theology Online courses, and credit those towards the AA track total. Any discounts previously received are counted towards the AA track total, that is, they are added into the total paid. The balance needed to reach the AA track total cost of $14,000 is then scheduled for payments (based on the estimated time to finish the AA track courses), or paid in full. NOTE: There is a $2,000 minimum balance/payment necessary to transfer to the Associate's degree track. [...]

47. I have completed some high school courses that are rigorous and rated as “Honors” or “Advanced.” Are they eligible for college credit?

2020-07-29T20:48:29+00:00

Accreditation agencies generally require any college-level credit for work done in high school or home school to be evaluated by a recognized third party evaluator such as such as AP, IB, ACE, CLEP. So any courses not recommended by such a recognized 3rd party course evaluator cannot be accepted for college credit, even if they might otherwise merit it. In order to obtain such recommendations, these 3rd parties either do a full review (as ACE has done in our case) of the courses involved, or develop and utilize their own tests to evaluate the results as college credit worthy (such as [...]

46. If I leave the A.A. program before completing it, can I order a transcript for courses completed to that point?

2020-07-29T20:47:52+00:00

Yes, provided there is no tuition balance due. All colleges require tuition be paid before they issue transcripts, diplomas or degrees. Since the A.A. tuition is discounted, and on a four-year basis, students who leave the A.A. track before completion will have their tuition recalculated at that time, based on the tuition they would have paid were they in the Great Books College track: $1,495 per Great Books semester; $750 per Theology online course; $360 per credit hour for Holy Apostles courses. In effect, this simply restores the tuition discount they received for joining and completing the A.A. track. Students who [...]

45. If I complete the A.A. courses in less than four years does the tuition change?

2020-07-29T20:47:26+00:00

Yes. A.A. track tuition is either $350 per month (40 months/10 per year) or $3,500 per year (a student taking two years of the Great Books simultaneously "doubling up"- would pay $700 per month, or $7,000 tuition that year). Tuition for the four years in the A.A. track totals to $14,000 for the entire A.A. program. If a student completes the program in less than four years they will have a balance due of the difference between what they have paid and the appropriate total below, which balance must be paid before they can receive a transcript, diploma or degree. Students [...]

44. May I complete the A.A. track in less than four years?

2020-07-29T20:46:55+00:00

Yes. For example, a few students take two years of the Great Books courses in one year, or may complete all of the Theology Online or Holy Apostles courses in one year.  However to take the the Theology Online courses and/or the Holy Apostles courses the student must be a Junior (11th grader), having completed the first two years (4 semesters) of the Great Books program with "C" or better grades.  Older students (beyond high school) may take the A.A. track courses when they wish.
