The TEL Difference

Equitable Access

TEL Education is a nonprofit, organization that partners with accredited institutions to deliver affordable college education.


Our goal requires excellence in course design, instruction and support, technology, and our relationships with the people we serve.


From our turnkey business model to our course platform, our solutions are easy to implement and easy to use—for partners, parents, and students.

For Higher Ed

The all-inclusive program—curriculum, instruction, technology, and support—allows accredited colleges and universities to deliver affordable and high quality online general education courses. These courses can also be used to enhance current dual-credit initiatives or launch new collegiate academy programs to expand enrollment funnels and create strong partnerships with local communities.

TEL’s dual-credit courses and collegiate academy programs provide an engaging and affordable pathway for high school students to begin their college journey. We support flexible scheduling, both online and blended instructional delivery, and an enrollment minimum of one student.

Course Design

TEL provides a broad range of highly engineered, online general education courses. Our team of learning engineers uses proven best practices along with internal research based on TEL user experience and feedback to create innovative courses that promote demonstrable, evidence-based learning.


“We feel that ENGL 1303 [Language and Composition] was so well-written that we will count it for both Comp 1 and Comp 2 at OKWU.”

Dalene Fisher, Ph.D., Assistant Provost, Dean of Arts and Sciences at Oklahoma Wesleyan University

“TEL has enabled many of our students to experience concurrent college enrollment when before they never had a hope of being able to afford college or travel to college. Many of our concurrent TEL students are first generation college students and graduating high school with college hours encourages them to continue on to reach their dreams.”

Sandra Powell, Graduation Coach, Oklahoma Virtual Charter Academy
