Finding an optimal work-life balance is always tricky, and trying to integrate going back to school into the mix as well can make you yearn for a 36-hour day in order to get everything accomplished. But colleges are here to help. Recently, more colleges are developing accelerated degree programs to help students save time as well as money so that their career goals are closer within reach. With innovative credit transfer processes, including credit for prior learning experience, and increased course availability, degrees can be completed in as little as 18 months.
