In the speech to kick-off his College Affordability Tour, President Obama praised Southern New Hampshire University for competency-based innovations such as College Unbound and College for America, which prepare students for a 21st century economy. Obama’s speech emphasized the need to award credits based on learning rather than “seat-time.”
College Unbound is proud of the satellite program at SNHU, now in its third year. Like its parent program, College Unbound @ SNHU offers project-based, real-world learning as an alternative to the classroom and graduates students who are career-ready with professional experience in their fields of interest.
