Thanks to their free wireless internet, I was able to check in on my school work. That's right, I said school work. I completed my first full week of classes last week. I am working on an Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology. I am very excited to be returning to school. I chose to go to the University of Phoenix because their credits are transferable to other schools. My experience with them so far has been nothing but good! I feel they have a system that puts their students on the road to success!
This brings me to my next topic....Getting degrees for life experiences. I was surprised when I first heard about this today, but it is something that you can truly do. Someone came into my office today. We were discussing returning to school, the benefits it will offer you, the dedication and work involved with school work, etc. He mentioned someone that he knows who went to the site below and got his degree.
It isn't buying a degree, although, I must admit that this is the first thought that came to my mind as I looked into it. They are simply giving you class credit for the work and other experiences you have met in life. There may be some classes required if your experience doesn't equal the requirements for the degree program. It is much cheaper than returning to the classroom and you have your degree in about 14 business days. This is interesting. I must admit it's not something I know a lot about. I am still looking into it. I am enjoying my classes, so I can't even say it is something I would do...but the opportunity is there for others who may be interested. These degrees come from an accredited school and the state recognizes and honors these degrees [at least SC does]. Do you know anyone who has gotten a degree this way? What are your thoughts and opinions on earning a degree through life experiences rather than a classroom only setting?
