Online College Career Courses
Liberal Arts or Science degrees make a lot of difference, specifically with regard to the material studies. A Bachelor of Arts Degree compared to a Bachelor of Science, for example, does not require as much course work. The science degree, on the other hand, will require more math and other science-related courses in order to complete the degree. Of course, the online college you will be attending has a lot to say, as far as what it has to offer, so be sure you check out all the options, or at least ask them about what options you have, prior to merely applying for something that seems “cool” for you. Many students, younger or older in their educational pursuits, need at least some guidance with regard to what courses are available for them, and very importantly, what they intend to do with the degrees.
It’s important to mention that if you have attended college before, some or all of your courses may be used for credit against a degree you’d like to obtain. You’ll need to check with the online college of your choice as to whether or not they will accept courses for credit with specific regard to undergraduate work. If you have never worked on any college courses before, then this experience will truly be unique for you, hands down.
The course work involved, on a course-by-course level for online colleges, is mostly done in a “self-paced” fashion, with certain deadlines that need to be met, in order to continue to the next course. Some colleges encourage taking several courses all at once, but not every student is able to operate in that fashion, so they will be advised to take one course at a time especially if they are a full-time student. It should be mentioned that typically either full or part-time college is how one attends school online. Full-time generally refers to 6 months and a full 12 + credit load, while part-time is just 3 months with a minimum of 6 full credits that must be taken in order to both stay in school and off of probation.
Not passing your online college courses can result in you going on probation or suspension with the school, as well as having PELL and other money becoming not available, should you go on suspension. Additionally, a “Not Passed” will go on your college transcripts for every time you do not pass a class. This may say something about you to others, as in you don’t complete things, etc. You will need to think carefully, when planning to attend college online.
