If you've started school or have some credits and would like to finish your education and obtain your degree, we have the information and resources to help you get your degree.
Each school has it's own policy and guidelines for accepting transferred credits. You should talk with an educational adviser to see how much of your existing credits are transferable.
Continue in Your Current Major or Choose a New One
Take the time to look carefully at your own interests and capabilities to see if you are suited for your current area of study. If not, you can elect to switch majors or change areas of study. A new major may set you back in the short term but will put you a better track for long term happiness and success.
Fast-track College Completion Programs
Programs like this will typically have a narrow group of degrees and a limited choice of majors. On the plus side, programs like this will offer a quicker path to obtaining a degree and outlaying less money for tuition, but the lack of specialization may hurt if you are interested in a specific field.
Send in Your Transcripts
In some cases before you are accepted you'll need to send in official copies of your transcripts from your previous college(s). These official documents are sent directly from your old school and sealed, official transcripts to your new college.
Consider an Online School
An online school may be the right fit for your education needs and will help you finish your degree while fitting your lifestyle. Online, self-paced classes will fit into any schedule and allow you to take the required courses and fulfill the requirements for your degree.
Look At the List of Required Classes
After your new college reviews your existing transcripts and credits, you should receive a list of required classes for graduation. These may include broad credit requirements and it's up to you to select courses that fulfill the requirements.
Work Experience Credit
You may be eligible for credit for your work experience. If the work you do is related to the field you are studying you may be in luck and have more earned credits than you think. Check with your prospective school advisers for more details on this.
