Registration at Saylor Academy is free, and all course materials are provided as part of the course package. The only costs to the student are their time and a small fee. Students who wish to have their exam proctored online can use Saylor Academy's partner, ProctorU.  Other options for proctoring may be available.  Once students complete their final exam, they can request a transcript be sent to MSPS.  The normal University grade and passing requirements apply to this program.

“All of us at the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies welcome this partnership, because it will enable our undergraduate students – working adults from throughout the Washington area – to complete their bachelor’s degrees more quickly and at lower cost,” said Dr. Vincent Kiernan, Dean of the Metropolitan School of Professional Studies.   

Saylor Academy is an opportunity for students to take additional classes, at no cost, thus reducing their overall tuition costs over a four-year program.  All courses approved by MSPS for study are certified for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE), recognized and accepted by many colleges and universities for alternative college credit.
