As an FYI, please realize that many CLEP tests were recently revised. This means that older study guides may prove less useful. The tests that were revised are listed below.

With the advent of online education, can snow days and teacher work days be replaced with prepared content from faculty? Some school districts are moving in this direction to cut costs. In many classrooms, each student has a Chromebook or an iPad so it is not too big of a leap for students to work on online content with the supervision of an aide. Even on snow days, students could work on this prepared content.
Another place this may be utilized is in the college classroom. When a faculty union strikes, instead of having the non-striking faculty members substitute teach all of those classes it could be outsourced. There could be a small niche company that offered credentialed individuals to substitute teach and oversee classes during strikes. This could all be done online, meaning this team of credentialed individuals could reside in one place instead of moving around to striking colleges.
I am not necessarily in support of either of these, but thought it was interesting to think of these two scenarios.
Throughout this blog, I discuss online resources to help you in accelerating your degree. A major resource that has loads of information is the InstantCert forum. It is a forum for students who are trying to accelerate their degree or are taking the higher education route in a more non-traditional way. There is a lot of information contained in the website, so don't forget to use the search bar to narrow it down to what pertains to you!

Accelerating your degree can be done at any age, which recently caught national headlines. A teen in Kansas will be graduating high school early and graduating with a bachelors degree from Harvard's Extension School. His hope is to attend law school and continue on to a career in politics. I have written about this in the past, graduating early to offset the cost and time to attend law school. I also have a free product documenting it on TpT.
Without a doubt this teen is very intelligent, but he credits most his success to working hard. I truly believe that anyone can achieve this sort of success with hard work. He can be on his way to a successful career as a lawyer at the age of 20!
I hope to write about Harvard Extension School in a future post, but you can find their website here.
In case you missed part 1 of this post, I wanted to make people aware of the fact that I have a TPT account where I post free content that can be used as a resource by parents, students, counselors, etc! The account can be found on TPT by the name TechFront. Part two of a recent slide package I put together can be seen below.

I hope to go into more detail about gaining credits through affordable online schools and the importance of them being regionally accredited. However, for now, I will post this list that was published by the user Ideas on degreeforum. Again, verify that this will work for your situation, but if it does it could be a great opportunity for you!
I would like to plug DegreeInfo as a wonderful resource for degree programs. The forum has been around for a very long time and has a very helpful community of people.
The degree programs discussed on the DegreeInfo forum are generally non-traditional focusing around fully online degree programs. Therefore, if this is something you are interested in, I would see if anyone else has been in your shoes and to determine what you can learn from their journey.
I would highly recommend visiting the website and reading some of the posts!
Central Texas College is a community college in Killeen, Texas. It is truly a wonderful resource for anyone who is in Texas or can take advantage of in-state tuition in Texas, which is as low as $2,130 in 2015! They are very accepting of alternate sources of credit and could be a wonderful way to earn a degree depending on your situation.
Also, this is a good example of the importance of understanding all of your options when pursuing higher education. For example, this could be a way for you to earn an associates degree on your way to a bachelors degree which could possibly lead to a pay raise. Or this institution could be a great starting point for a college journey, since once your earn credit in Texas it will transfer to any public university in Texas.
The message I want to convey with this post is to be different in your college pursuit! Understand all of the different avenues so that you can make an informed decision as to which one suits you best!
I have already discussed PSEO in a previous post, but it was not catered as much to a certain state. For this case study, we will focus on the state of Ohio and the information will be presented in a variety of PowerPoint slides. Feel free to print out any slides as reference material and as a good reminder of all of the opportunities of earning college credit.
