As student debt in America spirals to its highest levels ever, the goal of the new documentary is to liberate the next generation of young Americans by showing them that there is a better and cheaper way to achieve their educational goals.
According to the latest figures on the student debt crisis in the US, in 2022, Americans owe $1.75 trillion in student loans, a sum that increases by $100 billion every year. According to Bloomberg Data, student loans are the fasting growing segment of household debt in the country, having grown by more than 157% in just over a decade.
With an increasing emphasis on both undergraduate and Master’s degrees in the US, many young people accept these unfathomable levels of debt as an unalterable fact of life. However, Study With Marq and Mason Aksamit believe differently.
As such, the mission of their documentary is to educate viewers about how they can ‘test out’ of their degrees using the CLEP exams system. The filmmakers estimate that most people can effectively complete a bachelor’s degree in just over one year and for under $10,000, almost $30,000 less than the standard undergraduate debt in the US.

Small contributors to the crowdsourcing phase of production will enjoy benefits like a free e-book, paperback or signed copy of Aksamit’s book, depending on their contribution. Bigger backers will enjoy an Executive Producer credential and private coaching sessions on how to use CLEP exams to obtain a bachelor’s degree sooner and for less.
Study With Marq is a popular online learning platform that has been helping college students across the US pass their CLEP exams and fast-track their undergraduate degrees since 2017.
A spokesperson for the platform said, “We are giving the people of the United States a way to be debt-free with a bachelor’s degree. This documentary will expose a hole in our education system. It will bring awareness to our country that they can save thousands on their degrees. We could eliminate the student debt crisis for students for years to come. Whatever you can donate will help achieve this goal.”
