Benefits of this Program
Unlike traditional admissions requirements, working adults who enroll in these programs can include life and work experience as credits to count towards their degree. These completion programs typically have flexible scheduling options during a semester or quarter, and also count previous college credits and work/life/military experience towards studies and the flexibility to complete your degree as you see fit.
Technology: With the continual advancements in technology, going to school is becoming easier and easier for working adults. Now, all you need to attend class is your computer and cell phone. While there are many schools opting to have more online courses, online colleges have the advantage of being accessible at any time, any place, which is the number one perk for working adults trying to complete their degree.
Scheduling Flexibility: Flexibility is priceless to working adults and as a working adult, you have scheduling options that are not like traditional classes. Depending on your college, you may be able to attend classes at night and on the weekend.
Previous Credits: Working adults who previously earned college credits may be able to use those credits toward their degree. For an associate’s degree, some colleges require you have at least 18 hours of previous credit hours while others need a minimum of 54 credit hours.
Work/Life/Military Experience: Working adults may be able to use their work, life and/or military experience towards their degree. In some programs, such as education and business, working in the field you are seeking a degree for a minimum of five years counts as credit towards your degree. Military experience is evaluated through the American Council for Education and compared to the degree.
