Attending an online college or university offers many benefits -- especially if your military service has you stationed in an area where attending school on a traditional campus is inconvenient. With an online school you can complete classes at your own pace and on your own schedule -- working around other family, work, and service commitments. But, if you decide to later transfer to a traditional on campus university, it's important to make sure your online college credits will transfer. You certainly want to save yourself the frustration of repeating courses simply because your new school won't except the online credit. So, if you are attending an online college -- or have plans to attend one -- take a look at our article on collegeeducation411.com about Making Sure Your Course Credits Transfer to a new college or university. The more proactive you are in your research about transferring college credits, the more successful you are likely to be in making sure your courses transfer over. Good luck!
