Obtaining a bachelor's degree fast is possible, but there will still be a great deal of work involved in obtaining this degree. Although there may be some programs, especially online degree programs, which may claim to offer students degrees quickly or instantly but some of these programs are not legitimate. Common sense combined with a little research can help prospective students to determine whether or not an online program is legitimate.
It is important to note that it is possible to obtain a bachelor degree in an accelerated fashion but programs which offer a degree based on life experience or financial compensation to the program as opposed to through successful completion of required coursework are not likely legitimate. Students should realize obtaining a degree more quickly than usually should be more difficult than obtaining a bachelor degree through a traditional four year classroom experience because the required coursework will be compressed into a shorter period of time. This is because these accelerated programs should have the same basic requirements as programs from more traditional programs.
