Transferring from online to in-person schools
I'm thinking of getting an Associate's at an online school and then transferring to an in-person school in the last year or so to save money on a Bachelor's. Will in-person schools take transfer credits from online schools?

There's no single method for how to transfer your online credits to a traditional degree. I think it definitely depends on your schools on a case-by-case basis: some will, and some won't. Although I have to say it's much more common for online schools to take transfer credits from traditional schools than the other way around.

There's a good article on our site about transfer credits here:

In general, if you want a successful transfer from an online to a traditional school, here are a few things that may make it easier:

1. Start planning as early as possible. Don't wait until halfway through your Associate's degree to start looking around for a school to transfer to.

2. Set it up beforehand--ask traditional schools you're considering whether they'll take credits from online schools. Choose your online school based on their feedback.

3. Choose an online school with a regional accreditation--not a national one. Check out this article for more information on accreditation:

4. Choose an online school that also offers traditional classes. This may lessen the stigma some traditional colleges have about online education.
