Universal Class FAQ

What is UniversalClass™?
UniversalClass™ is an online educational service dedicated to providing the highest quality online courses. The online courses are delivered in a consistent, verified, easy-to-use format that is accessible to students worldwide. Over 300,000 students have benefited from the state-of-the-art online courses!

Who can take courses on UniversalClass™?
Any Sayreville Library cardholder that has an interest in a UniversalClass™ course and wants to be certain of quality instruction, personal guidance, and tracked progress. To fully benefit from the online classes, you'll need at least a high school reading level.

How does UniversalClass™ regulate course quality?
UniversalClass™ reviews instructors, monitors instructor participation, and scrutinizes course quality for any course placed in our course catalog and other category areas. Classes promoted on public service have been reviewed for quality instruction from quality instructors.

What are the advantages of taking online classes on UniversalClass™?
There are many. First, UniversalClass™ virtual classrooms are extremely easy to use. Second, their proprietary technology allows you to receive continual feedback from instructors regarding your progress in a course. All student work is tracked in the online courses. UniversalClass™ can verify student's progress through detailed logs. Additionally, successful students may earn a Certificate of Course Completion that documents their final grade, along with other assessment information. This certificate is available in hard copy form and can be electronically registered and verified on their service via a unique serial number.

Are these Courses worth college credit?
We do not make any guarantees that any course on our service will convert to "college credit". We can only provide interested parties with official information that documents your progress in a specific course. Some institutions will accept the documentation as proof of fulfilling a course requirement, and others will not. No online or mortar-based school can guarantee that any specific course you take at any college will be accepted by another institution. Ultimately, it's up to your advisor and/or admissions office.

How can I be sure I'm taking a UniversalClass™ reviewed course?
If the course is listed in the course catalog or in any of their categories, then it's a course that has been reviewed by the Course Review Committee.
