Adult learners who are considering an online degree and who have already earned some college credits during the course of their careers can greatly decrease the time and money spent it takes to earn an online degree by transferring credits from another school. Most higher learning organizations, including online schools, allow the transferring of credits toward a degree.
Even if you don’t have any previous college experience, it’s still possible to earn credits before you enroll! Many online schools, especially those geared toward adults, give credit for knowledge and skills gained through life experience and technical institutes. Although the experience sought typically comes through paid employment, it may also be acquired through volunteer work, as well as company or military training courses. Each online school’s transfer credit requirements and process vary, so it’s important that you verify before making a final decision on a school.
