Bexar County is participating in Saylor Academy’s Corporate/Employer Degree Completion program, providing county employees with access to Saylor’s free courses toward college credit. In turn, county employees will have free proctoring services (for Direct Credit exams) available to them at any BiblioTech location.
Bexar County, with nearly two million residents, is the 17th most populous county in the United States.
In addition to county employees, Bexar County residents will be able to take courses for free and use free proctoring services at BiblioTech locations.

“Our tuition-free college credit program can help dramatically expand any employer’s degree completion efforts,” says Jeff Davidson, Executive Director of Saylor Academy. “We are seeing more and more employers looking to increase the reach of their tuition-assistance programs. The additional offering of free proctoring services for employees seeking college credit is a model for other cities, states, and municipalities to follow.”
