Sounds too good to be true.

With CourseBuffet, you can start a complete bachelor’s degree program from the comfort of your own laptop, at home, with or without pants.

The degree paths are structured the same as those at traditional universities, and each requires 120 credits to “graduate.” To get there, you build your own path by select a required number of courses within a segment. For example, the first segment of a CS degree, Core Computer Science, requires 24 credits.

To build this segment, you choose 24 credits (eight courses) from some of the biggest universities in the country, all for free. The courses are even organized so that you can select those that build on previous knowledge gained in others, just like an actual college program.

CourseBuffet is completely free and currently offers two degree paths: computer science and management. A third offering, finance, is planned.
