Turn Old College Credits Into A New Degree: A How-To Guide

Are you looking for ways to turn your old college credits into a new degree? Here’s how and why!

Transfer your credits

Although some colleges have stricter policies, it is not common for students to lose their credits from their earlier studies. There are always ways you can make use of them for getting a new degree. Therefore, if you have a lot of college credits, make sure you use them! For instance, the credits you have earned can always come in handy for a variety of things.

In other words, all the courses that you have attended and passed, have brought you certain credits. These credentials can easily decrease the time that you would otherwise have to spend in your new college. This is because these credits can free you from certain obligations and thus make it easier and faster for you to get a new degree.

For example, if you have passed an English exam in your old college, there is a high probability that by transferring credits from that passed course you won’t be obliged to take the English course in the new degree. This way, you have made things easier and chopped a quite big part of your new degree, which leaves you with fewer courses that you will have to take!

Make use of your old college experience

Sometimes, there will be cases where you may not be able to transfer some credits. For example, if in your old college you listened to an introductory course in psychology as a nonmajor, and now you have an introductory course of psychology but as your major, chances are that you won’t be able to transfer credits.

However, don’t just give up. Instead, if your memory from that course is still fresh, you can brush it up and revise it, then take the exam in that subject in the next exam period and try to pass it. This way, you can avoid taking the whole course again, but instead just take the exam and in that way make good use of your knowledge from the old college!

Turn your work experience into credits

There is an increasing popularity in institutions giving job opportunities to students who are eager to gain useful work experience. As a result, students who take up job positions offered by the institution, get bonus credits in turn!

If, however, you have already gained some working experience, make sure you submit your portfolio and thus try to turn your job experience into credits that you can use to reduce the number of courses in your new college! One of the ways you can do this is to find the right person that will help you with the procedure!

There are a few distinct types of retroactive certification schemes, and their regulations vary greatly. For example, incoming students can get a review of their previous credits and find out if they're qualified for a retroactive degree through these programs. To that end, make sure you first check their web page where they explain the process in detail and take notes. Afterward, you will need to submit transcripts for review, then wait for the school's ruling, and if everything goes well, transfer your associate's degree to a bachelor's program!

Hopefully, you will find some of these tips useful in getting your new degree! Good luck!
