7. How long does it take to achieve a degree?
It all depends on your schedule! Each course provides 10 hours of lecture, study guide, and an exam. You can expect to invest a couple of hours two days a week to complete one course per month. This pace would keep you on track with traditional education, for example, an Associate degree in two years, a Bachelor in four years, etc.
