Here’s a really cool deal for homeschoolers!

I found this on Trivium Pursuit

Do you know a high school Junior or Senior who would like to knock out 3 college Spanish Credits without setting foot in a classroom (except maybe the one in their home)? Rosetta Stone has partnered with James Madison University, a fully accredited four year institution, to offer college level Spanish 1! Enrollment is now open, and learners can start in as little as 8 days from today! Online courses begin every Monday, and the complete intensive program takes 16-weeks to complete.

In addition to Rosetta Stone online coursework, the program includes live online sessions with a tutor who’s a native Spanish speaker. This beginner-level course also gives students access to their own Success Agents dedicated to helping students succeed in Spanish.

This is a strictly limited offering open to the first 500 students to enroll. In other words, courses begin on Mondays only as long as there are still openings, and once there are 500 students enrolled, no more classes will begin. To be eligible, students must be at least high school junior level academically, OR at least 18 years of age.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if my college will accept the credits?

Check with your college or university to see if they will accept James Madison University (a regional accredited institution) credits.

James Madison University is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate, masters and doctorate degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call (404) 679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of James Madison University.

What is required to complete and pass the course?

Rosetta Stone Conversational Spanish I is a 16 week long program, and includes a 6 unit course, along with live sessions with native-speaking tutors and interactive games. You will need to follow the syllabus provided to enrolled students, satisfactorily complete the activities and dedicate approximately 45 hours to finish this program.

When are classes held? How flexible is the schedule?

You can get started with the 6 unit course as soon as you complete your purchase and receive your login information. You can also begin to sign up for the regularly scheduled online sessions at your convenience. You will have 16 weeks to complete the class but we won’t slow you down if you’d like to finish ahead of schedule.

Can I withdraw or cancel and still get a refund?

Yes, you can drop within 10 calendar days from your class start date without any notation on your transcript for the class, provided you give written notice to Rosetta Stone by midnight on the tenth day.

Do I need any background in Spanish?

No, this is a beginner course. No background in Spanish is necessary.

Does purchasing online automatically register me for the class?

Not quite, once you complete your online purchase you will receive information on how to apply to James Madison’s University as a non-degree seeking student – necessary to complete the registration process. However, there are no additional fees and it should only take you a few minutes.

This is a great opportunity for homeschoolers, if you can take advantage of it.  Rosetta Stone is an awesome program!
