A flexible, online education program

Unbound isn’t a college. It’s an online program designed to help you pursue a better college experience. We help you earn affordable online credit from multiple colleges—ensuring your degree is custom-tailored to your goals, interests, and preferred study method.

Start with a plan

You tell us where you want to graduate. We’ll build you a plan. By using flexible, affordable courses and transferring the credit into your chosen school, you can save thousands on your degree. This is what it means to be Unbound from the traditional limitations of college.

Study your way

Flexible courses fit seamlessly into your schedule and don’t force you to fit your life around classes. This means both part-time and full-time students can graduate faster, and on their own schedule.

Unbound gives you the freedom to take courses from more affordable sources, so you can save hundreds of dollars on every credit. The more courses you take, the more you save.

Join the community

Unbound students aren’t merely classmates. They’re co-adventurers. They build organizations and form lifelong relationships with each other. They’re just like you.

Learn about student life

Learn from anywhere

There are no restrictions on when you have to take courses, when you’ll need to take your test, or when you have to be at class. With Unbound, you're free to travel the world, develop deep friendships with your classmates, and gain extraordinary experiences, all while working on your degree.

Regular college students ask each other what’s good in the cafeteria. Unbound students discuss which airport has the best coffee shop.

Being Unbound allowed me to join a community of world-changers from across the globe. Many have become some of my closest friends and accountability partners over the last few years, and being in the program has given me both the flexibility and the reason to travel literally all over the United States.

Being Unbound has allowed me to pursue my dreams and helped me to reach my goals of competing for team Canada internationally, I can honestly say I don't know if this would have been possible if I had of been in a classroom.

I just love the fact that I'm able to go to my fellow Unbound student’s all over the country and crash at their place for the night and visit, or have them visit me in NYC and hang out. Being able to connect to all sorts of people all over the place, all while being busy with the other things I’m doing and getting experience in.

The most impactful thing about doing Unbound has been the community and the friends that I’ve made through this. It would not have been the same without that community, both online and at student gatherings.

The conversations I’ve had and the memories I’ve made...will stick with me for long into the future, and that power will continue as long as there are students to attend them.

Be Unbound.
