Quottly finds college students the best and cheapest courses, not just at their school, but across all schools. While the average student can pick between a couple of thousand courses offered by their school each semester, we search more than one million courses, and only show ones that count for the student’s degree. Many of the courses that we list are cheaper than the options at the student’s home school. Students looking to save money can save up to $3,000 per course that they take through Quottly. Other students can find courses that help them graduate on time, or graduate early, saving an entire semester’s worth of expenses. Students who use Quottly repeatedly can save up to 45% of the cost of their degree.
After students have picked a class, they can register for that class right on our website for a small convenience fee. Students registering through Quottly receive a guarantee that the course will count for credit, and can save hours of paperwork, emailing advisors, and researching requirements. We’re currently serving students at public universities in Florida, California, and Pennsylvania.
An articulation agreement is an agreement between schools that defines which credits from one school may be substituted for credits at another school. Most state university and college systems have articulation agreements defined at the state level that require universities to accept credits from community colleges, and vice versa.
Students who register through our site pay a small fee - between $10 and $30 - in exchange for our streamlined, ten minute registration process, and a guarantee that the complex transient paperwork will be done correctly.
No, Quottly works directly with students. We don’t negotiate any agreements with schools and don’t accept any money from them. We get the information we need from public records requests.
Not at this time.
By the end of Summer ‘16, we should add: Texas, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey, Ohio, Virginia, and Arizona. Why? These are the next 7 largest states by total possible savings for students.
Yes, currently you can discover which classes are substitutable for free. If you choose to register through Quottly, you pay a small registration fee, and in exchange get a guarantee that the paperwork is completed correctly and in a timely fashion.
James Gibson, Co-Founder
James is the co-founder of Quottly. He attended the University of Florida and earned 4 degrees in 4 years - with just $6,000 in debt - by optimizing his course schedules and finding hacks that enabled him to graduate more quickly. James met Melissa, who was also interested in the problem of student debt, and had a similar experience with her step-daughter, at a talk Melissa gave to James’ class of UF’s Master of Science in Finance program, a degree they both completed.
Melissa Guzy, Investor & Co-Founder
Melissa is the co-founder and managing director of Arbor Ventures, a Hong Kong-based financial technology venture fund, and the first woman-led fund in Asia. She helped her stepdaughter figure out how to take transient courses to complete her degree, saving more than $10,000 in the process, and giving her a personal interest in Quottly. To quote - “People were focused on companies dealing with student debt once you’ve already incurred it, but I thought there had to be a better way to deal with student debt before it actually happened.” (GainesvilleScene interview).
