We're entering into the ninth year of homeschooling in our home, and we now have a high school sophomore who is contemplating college options is the near future.  We've thought of doing some dual-enrollment during these high school years and have been aware of the CollegePlus organization for several years.  Has anyone gone the CollegePlus route?  How have graduate schools or employers viewed the degree that your child has earned using this method?  Any difficulties with the method? Any criticism we need to hear?

We're coming up on high school and the idea of Credit By Examination (CBE) options for college.

Good luck with all the collage stuff, I still have many years to go but hopefully with all the advice through-out the years it will be easier :D

Those are great sites, Karen.  Thanks for posting them.  My daughter is a junior, and I'm looking at some online options for her right now.
