You may be able to complete your studies by enrolling in an online school in case you are an adult learner with past college experience but no degree. Many of the colleges online cater to professional adult students wanting to transfer previous credits and earn a degree in less time than the traditional 4-year program. Make sure online learning is the right fit for your lifestyle. Online college isn't a good choice for everyone. Successful students must be able to balance their virtual classes with other responsibilities. They must be able to learn independently, without a teacher giving them personalized instruction and motivation. Learners online must be competent writers and have a high level of reading comprehension. The majority of online courses are reading and writing intensive - those lacking these skills may find themselves overwhelmed in addition to this, even in case they excel at the subject being studied. Find an online college.  It is important that your online college is regionally accredited and that it has a good reputation in case you plan to use your degree in the workplace. You'll also want to find a program that fits your schedule. Some online colleges require students to log-in to a virtual classroom at a certain day and time.

How to finish your college degree

Other colleges allow students to work at their own pace, without any scheduled meetings. You'll probably want to enroll in a college that accepts transfer credits as a learner. These online schools are regionally accredited and are known for having flexible credit-application policies. They happily work with students to apply old credits to new degrees. Choose a major. You may decide to keep your original major, or you may choose to study something completely different. Keep in mind that   choosing a new major may substantially increase the time it takes to earn a degree. Some fast-track college completion programs offer only a limited selection of majors in case you have a lot of subject-specific transfer credits.  Some fast-track college completion programs offer only a limited selection of majors. Generally these majors are in subjects such as "general studies." A degree in such a generic major may not help you when applying to industries that require training in a specific field. However, most jobs that only require a "bachelors degree," should accept generic majors with no problem. You'll need to have all previous school transcripts sent to the college's admissions office once you've been accepted to an online program. Most colleges do not accept personal copies of transcripts. You'll probably need to have your previous schools send official, sealed transcripts directly to your new college. Ask for transcript review clarifications. After the initial transcript review, speak up with any questions and concerns you have. Ask about it in case you believe that a particular class should be counted towards a requirement. You may be able to petition for an additional review (potentially saving you a lot of time and money). Your online college counselor should provide you with a list of required classes.
