Online Bachelors Degree

1. A bachelors degree takes about four years to complete.

A traditional undergraduate program is made up of 120-128 credits. Taken full time, it takes four years to complete a bachelors degree. Some people can accelerate the process by taking classes on the Internet, which are usually shorter, or by taking class challenge tests called CLEP exams.

2. An online bachelors degree is granted only by a four year college or university.

Any four year college or university that is accredited to grant an online bachelors degree may do so. Of course, it is important to check that the college or university is accredited before enrolling in any program. At the same time, it is worthwhile to investigate the academic standing of the college or university. It would be unfortunate to study hard for four years and pay thousands of dollars, only to discover that the diploma is not accepted by another school or worse by an employer as valid.

3. An online bachelors degree requires you to declare an area of concentration.

A bachelors degree usually consists of general education and elective courses in addition to a concentration on a particular area of study, also known as a "major". However, some universities allow students to pursue a program in general studies without declaring a specific area of concentration. This leaves more room for elective classes in areas that interest the student.

4. It is possible to transfer up to 50 credits from a community college to count towards your online bachelors degree.

Most bachelor's degree programs allow up to 90 credits to be transferred. The last 30 need to be taken as a residency requirement at the diploma-granting college or university. Often, these credits are comprised of the core curriculum, or foundational courses needed to complete your education. Transferring college credit shortens the time it takes to complete the educational diploma program. Be sure you look at all requirements for the college of interest since each college's transfer requirements vary.

5. Pursuing a degree is a worthy cause.

Proverbs 1:7 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
