Does University of the Potomac’s First Year Full Tuition Scholarship Deliver the Greatest Value in American Education Today?

A full tuition, freshman-year scholarship is waiting for you at a top-notch college . . . can that be true?

Yes it is true, if you take advantage of a unique program that has been created jointly by University of the Potomac and StraighterLine. It’s called the First Year Full Tuition Scholarship, and here’s how it can work for you . . .

  • Complete eight StraighterLine courses and earn 24 college credits. Your cost could be $1,299 or even less, depending on the StraighterLine subscription plan that you select.
  • Present your transcript for your completed courses to University of the Potomac. Your 24 credits will be immediately accepted and you will become a second-year student at Potomac.
  • Potomac will immediately issue you a credit for the full amount that you paid for your coursework at StraighterLine.

It all sounds too good to be true, but it isn’t.  “Come into our college as a sophomore, and we will cover the cost of your freshman year courses at StraighterLine,” says Debra Jonsson, the Chief Operating Officer at Potomac who worked with StraighterLine to create the First Year Full Tuition Scholarship Program.  To learn more about your scholarship, visit University of the Potomac’s website or call the college at (888) 635-1121.
