StraighterLine, the fastest-growing provider of affordable, high quality online general education courses, has partnered with Olivet Nazarene University, one of the nation’s top Christian universities — providing education with a Christian purpose since 1907. Olivet offers programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, with several online degree options that begin regularly throughout the year. In addition to regular course offerings, Olivet specializes in programs designed to meet the needs of adult learners.
“This partnership with Olivet Nazarene University opens up additional credit pathways for college students,” said StraighterLine Founder and CEO Burck Smith. “Together, StraighterLine and Olivet are making a real difference in the lives of college students by offering a flexible, affordable way to earn their degree.”
StraighterLine and Olivet are partnering to serve adult and non-traditional learners by offering a wide range of online courses and programs.
“Olivet has long made it their mission to offer the very best programming to our students across growing areas of impact,” said Dr. Ryan Spittal, Vice President for Strategic Expansion. “One of these critical areas of growth is our adult learners and through this partnership, Olivet will be better able to serve this expanding student population through quality online education.”
The School of Graduate and Continuing Studies currently enrolls thousands of students, with more new students starting every day. Recently, Olivet launched ONU Global as a means to oversee this growing area of impact. The majority of ONU Global students are non-residential, non-traditional students.
ONU Global currently has a physical presence in three states including Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan and offers more than 30 undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs. Programs may be completed on-ground, online, or a combination of both. ONU Global is approved for online programming in 46 states and offers 14 programs fully online — with plan to expand in the future through the partnership with StraighterLine.
