I have become an affiliate for CollegePlus! I am a great fan of this program--with qualifications. I see greater needs for young men to get a degree than for young women, because they are intended by God's design to be providers of their families. Yet not every young man needs a degree. My two adult sons have not gone for the degree, and both are very successful in the working world. Eldest Son has his own business, ziplinegear.com, which is selling around $2 million a year, and Middle Son is doing programming for John Deere at home. Yet Third Son wants to be an engineer, and may need the degree to get there.
There are many good reasons to earn a degree via the nontraditional way. Listen to this economics prof explain why here.
