Meet Mike. He works for your company and just activated his Study.com membership. Mike has a high school diploma and has never attended college. He knows he wants advance his career but doesn't know how to get started.

During the initial goals assessment, Mike's success coach helps him achieve clarity that he wants to become a manager and earn an associate's degree.

Now that Mike has identified his goals, his coach wants to make sure he is ready to succeed in college and is well informed about his school options.

He directs Mike to Study.com's college readiness course. It takes Mike a week to complete the course. He learns that he has the basic skills he needs but will probably need some additional support in math once he's enrolled.

Next, his coach directs him to Study.com's course on how to choose a school. He learns about online vs. traditional education, community colleges, and the differences between for-profit and not-for-profit schools. He decides that his local community college is the best option for him.

Next, his coach sends him the micro course on paying for college and Mike learns how to apply for financial aid and grants and fill out his FAFSA. Now he's ready to enroll.

His coach helps him map out his degree, and he enrolls in his first two courses, Intro to Management and College Algebra. During his check in, Mike shares how much he loves his management course but, not surprisingly, the math course is going too fast for him. His coach assigns him Study.com's college algebra course, which consists of self-paced video lessons that simplify and explain every topic in the course. The extra review helps Mike keep up and pass the class.

Mike is excited to start his second semester but runs into a roadblock! Mike's work schedule changed and he can no longer attend classes on campus. He has gotten comfortable learning online through Study.com so he and his coach talk about online options for college credit

Mike's coach reviews his degree map and identifies 6 study.com courses that can be transferred to the community college for credit. Mike gets through his first course quickly by studying on his lunch break and during his commute. Mike is able to complete all six courses within four months.

The next semester, Mike is able to attend classes on campus again. His coach helps him transfer his Study.com credits and he completes his degree at the community college.
