Free Freshman Year? Texas State Hopes To Try It Out - MATTHEW WATKINS TEXAS TRIBUNE

The Texas State University System has an idea for future students busy with families and jobs: Don't even show up on campus freshman year. Starting next fall, the school plans to encourage nontraditional students to take free massive open online courses, known as MOOCs, before they arrive on campus. If they take 10 courses and pass tests for college credit, students could show up at school with a year's work complete before paying a single tuition bill.
