4 ways to save time and money on your bachelor degree (PART 4- Community Colleges)

Hi Friends,

One of the best ways to save money on your bachelor degree is to earn your general education credits at a community college. The cost of tuition at a community college is significantly less that that of a university. However, it’s best to take on this endeavor with a plan. I recommend the following:
1. Find out the general education requirements of the bachelor degree program that you want to transfer into.

2. Meet with your academic counselor to take courses that are equivalent to the required courses in program of your interest.

3. Don’t take any courses that are not required for transfer.  Using this option will cut down the cost of your education significantly.

I hope you have enjoyed this series. Feel free to ask any questions in the comment box below.

Godspeed,

4 ways to save time and money on your bachelor degree (PART 3- Tuition Benefits)

Hi Friends,

Are you looking for a job to earn some extra-cash while you are in school? If so, you might consider looking for employment with a company that offers tuition benefits.

Many companies offer a full or partial tuition benefit as part of their total benefit package. It may be in your best interest to research companies that offer such a benefit as you search for work.

I hope this series has been helpful for you. Please join me tomorrow as I talk to you about how to save money by earning your general education credits at a community.

Godspeed,

4 ways to save time and money on your bachelor degree (PART 2-Prior Learning Assessment)

Hi Friends,

I hope that you are enjoying this series. Today I am going to share with you another way to earn college credit by putting “what you already know” to use.

Many universities provide students with the opportunity to compile a portfolio that demonstrates a learning experience in a particular subject area. Students are then allowed to present the portfolio as a means to earn credit.

I hope you find this information in this video to be useful. For additional information feel free to view the American Council on Education website.

Join me tomorrow as I talk about employment tuition benefits.

Godspeed,

4 ways to save time and money on your bachelor degree (PART 1- Exam for Credit)

Hi Friends,

What if were to tell you that you are able to earn college credit for what you already know? Believe it or not, you can earn college credit by testing out of subject areas that you feel that you have already mastered. These tests can be taken for a fraction of the cost of what you would pay for tuition at a university.

In my video I mention 4 different types of tests that are commonly accepted for credit at universities. I am including them below.

Some of these exams can be taken for as low as $85.00. Currently CLEP and DSST are offering a $10.00 discount if you register during the month of September.

I hope you find this information useful. Feel free to ask me any question in the comment box below.

Godspeed,
