Frequently asked questions

  • We recommend students have earned at least a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. You must be 13 or older and willing to commit yourself academically to enroll in our courses. Students attempting Outlier courses should be ready for the academic rigor of college-level coursework.

    In addition, students will need Wi-Fi and a laptop or desktop computer (tablets, Chromebook and cell phones do not meet our requirements) to complete the course.

  • When you Audit an Outlier course, it simply means you’re taking the course without the expectation of earning credits or impacting your college transcript. You will not receive a grade, a transcript, nor credits, and will not be participating in exams.

    The Audit Path is ideal for:

    -High school students who are looking to add sparkle to their college applications, or who wish to learn more about a subject, but avoid the burden of impacting their permanent records.

    -Lifelong learners who want to take a serious course but aren’t interested in receiving grades or college credits.

  • Tutoring sessions will be scheduled to maximize compatibility with students’ schedules and availability. Exams and writing assignments (when applicable) are each open to take for a set window of time (usually several days); however, all other course materials are available to you from the time the course opens through the end of the final exam window.

  • If you have a request for reasonable disability accommodations, contact success@outlier.org. Please include specifics regarding the accommodation you are seeking. Additionally, if you have a disability accommodations letter from a school you are currently attending, you may send that to us as well.

  • We are thrilled to launch new courses every year across a wide variety of subjects. The course and materials have been created to our exacting quality standards but, like any good course, are improved and modified with each class that goes through it to adjust to the student base. Once this waitlisted course becomes available, we designate the first few real-world cohorts of any new course we launch as “Beta.” This “Beta” period gives us the chance to tinker with pacing, improve clarity, and fine-tune our support resources for the course. It also lets you know that we welcome any and all feedback from you and you may find your requests swiftly applied. And rest assured, we will still get you the same outcomes & credits as any other Outlier course.
