Athletes use online boost: 2 weeks, 3 credits

When a college athlete fails or drops a class, there’s a quick, easy, low-cost way to stay eligible: An Oklahoma community college offers two-week, three-credit online courses for $387. As the NCAA raises academic requirements, more athletes are turning to online credit mills.

  1. Ummmm, can a REGULAR student do this and get away with it. I don’t think so, I’d hope that the NCAA (which is a SHAM organization anyways) would put a stop to this nonsense.

    Two weeks for a 3 credit course would be the equiv. of attending four hours a day for 10 days (I’ve taken a course like this in IT in the classroom when Novell Netware was the in thing in server environments).

    There is NO way this can be properly monitored, IMO.

    Student-Athlete in this case is a joke
