Answer 1: be careful about the search-of the so-called "non-traditional" education. That term is often used by diploma/degree mills that are trying to convince diploma/degree seekers that so-called "non-traditional" educational methods are legitimate. They are not . Do not be sucked in by it! Just get that phrase in your head, because this is typically a good-for-nothing (usually illegal) diploma and/or degree mill! Now, that said, there are at least a couple of legitimate forms of "non-traditional" education, but in general, it is not the panacea that diploma/degree seekers. The most common is the "college credit for life experience." That, despite the fact that, unfortunately, is the type of "non-traditional" education diploma/degree mills try to convince diploma/degree seekers is legitimate. Mills request a copy of your resume and copy of transcripts of previous college courses; and then they claim that the "student" almost enough to win one of their diplomas or degrees; and, then, the plant will have them take a course or two, perhaps read a book or two and write an article or two about them, and, next thing you know, voila!, you've earned a "degree" (or title) of the factory. But it is false! It is not a true degree or diploma! It is a rip-off! Stay away from it ! There really is such a thing as the "credit by life experience" in the real and legitimate colleges/universities; but it is very difficult to win. Most of the accredited schools only allow a limited amount of it, too... usually no more than a year's worth of credit... or almost 30 US credit hours per semester. Fake schools, on the other hand, there is almost an entire degree's worth of "life experience" credit... which is ridiculous. Most of the legitimate and accredited schools do not allow even 30 semester credit hours worth... the majority of allow for a lot less. And reach life/work experience for credit involves a lot of work. One must go back through the details of all the life and the document of work/life experience one has to assign directly to any of the school's real-numbered courses in which one is trying to obtain credit. All of this documentation, and shows how the experience of the maps directly in the course(s) must be mounted in what is called a "portfolio." And most of the schools require that said portfolio to be damn detailed; and the whole life of work and the experience of being carefully documented and verified... sometimes even require detailed affidavits of his former employers. It is very hard... much so that, in reality, rather than to consider the presentation of a life experience portfolio at the end up to go ahead and take the courses because it is really simple and maybe even faster. If the student is the presentation of a portfolio must also pay for the loans granted through the "life/work experience," the same as if s/he just went ahead and took the course, after that, there is usually enough to disabuse students of the notion of trying to win the "life/work experience credit a legitimate and accredited by the university. The fake/fake-schools-mills-on the other hand, the award "life experience" credit to virtually anyone with a pulse and checkbook. And none of those credits are actually worth anything in real life. No college or employer will accept... or the false/fake "degree" or "diploma" of the false/fake school that arwarded. What is the point!?! In fact, in some states, Oregon for example, just to name one, a person with a fake/false title of a mill can actually get in legal trouble... maybe even be arrested. So, trust me: Just get "non-traditional education" out of your head. Usually it is a scam. To get a true and accreditation of college degree requires a lot of work, and takes a long time to win. There are No shortcuts; and only the degree/diploma mills claim that there are! Did not grow up in it. .
