What is Amesite College?

Amesite College partners with top colleges and universities to offer engaging, easily accessible, and affordable artificial intelligence-powered online college courses. These college courses are first year, introductory courses that are generally taken by everyone who goes to a higher education—allowing budget conscious students to save time and money. Amesite has partnered with Humphreys University to make these credits easily transferable to major state universities in California. The artificial intelligence-powered courses are specifically designed to enhance and improve student learning to help them achieve more. The platform helps manage students’ time, track learning, and help them engage with instructors and peers throughout the courses.

It’s designed for the modern student in mind where a college education isn’t necessarily from nine to five. It’s squeezing the classes wherever you can in-between shifts at work or in-between running the kids to soccer practice. Amesite’s courses are budget friendly, engaging as any classroom, and the course credits are easily transferable to a variety of universities. For more information check out the product page.
