For people who had already

For people who had already been in the workforce for years and did not want to take the standard 4 year route for a degree, I used to always tell them to figure out what they want a degree in, get the on the job / life experience credits from Thomas Edison, take CLEP exams to get credits for other courses they need, fill in with classes at a community college and then transfer all the credits back to Thomas Edison college to assemble all the credits into the degree. Just make sure that the community college you go to has credits which are accepted by Thomas Edison college. AFAIK, that's one of the ways they worked. It's been a while since I looked into all that, so maybe things have changed by now. Got my degree the old fashioned way, but had I known about this option before I went to college I might have tried it out.
