Wanting A Career Alteration – What Is The Easiest Route To Obtain A Degree

By John Ibstrom

The current economical outlook remains less than ideal but is slowly improving. However, for those who still find themselves unemployed, may not look upon the improvement as encouraging. Perhaps now they are considering changing careers so that they may not become the victim of a poor economy again. They might be asking themselves, what is the quickest, easiest way to obtain a degree?

No matter what type of career you led before your decision to change, getting a bachelor’s degree has never been easier. There are plenty of benefits to obtaining a degree for your new career as fast as possible. For starters, you can’t start your new job with higher pay and better benefits until you get that degree. So it is desirable to get the fastest degree possible.

If you were formally trained by a technical or vocational program for your current or former career, you may be able cash some of this training into acknowledged credits. Traditionally, one or two year certification programs was not translatable into higher degree programs, but some colleges and universities will allow some of this education to be transferred for lower level requirements. This leads to an overall reduced time for a four-year degree.

When returning to school as a non-traditional student, make sure you examine the College Level Examination Program (CLEP). CLEP allows you to ‘test-out’ of some of the basic subjects that may be required by your particular degree program. If you can successfully pass some of these exams, you will be granted credits for courses that will not have to take.

No amount of testing and book study can account for your life experiences. Some universities and colleges acknowledge that sometimes the best classroom to learn is through living life itself. Depending upon your past work experiences, some schools will grant you credits based upon these life experiences which shorten the length of the degree program.

For whatever program you enroll, look into the availability of online coursework. Online courses allow you to take classes from home, however the length of the actual course may not be any shorter. But online courses are set at your schedule and you may be able to take on a higher course load with more online courses, thereby gaining more credits faster.

Perhaps the fastest online degrees are now earned through enrollment in an online university. These degree granting programs operate primarily online and claim to offer degrees at only a fraction of the traditional time frame. While there are some legitimate online universities, there are others who are just degree mills, and have no proper accreditation. Make sure they are accredited through the Council for Higher Education.

Get further details on the easiest degrees available now! You are going to learn the benefits of attaining fast degrees are invaluable!
