Many parents struggle every month to make payments for their child’s education, and every year the cost of college goes up.  That means many young people never get the opportunity to go on past high school.  Tuition plus fees at four-year public colleges jumped by more than 70 percent over the last decade.

Modern States Education Alliance is a nonprofit that focuses on making a high-quality college education free of cost and accessible to all. Founder and C-E-O Steve Klinsky says the new “Freshman Year for Free” program lets students earn up to one year of college credit without tuition or textbook expenses. Klinsky says Modern States’ 40 courses are designed to prepare students for the “Advanced Placement” (AP)* or “College Level Examination Program” (CLEP)* tests offered by the College Board.
