Earning credits for an Online Bachelors degree is achieved by enrolling in and completing a full semester course. Most online bachelor degree programs require at least 120 credits to be earned before a degree is awarded and some require upwards to 190.
If you are transferring schools mid-semester or mid-year, make sure to get all the necessary information regarding transferring credits. In some cases, specific courses do not transfer over to the next school's curriculum and must be either counted as an elective or put aside. To ensure that you are taking classes that transfer over to other school or for any questions regarding credit transfer, make an appointment to speak with an academic advisor. Be sure to have your transcript, curriculum chart, and other vital information on hand.
