easiest way to earn a degree from home...?
#1
*posted in the wrong category before, posting in the correct one now* 

I have 6 or 9 credits that will most likely transfer as electives from around 20 years ago, so idk if they'll even still transfer. I am looking to get my bachelors in business with either a marketing, management, communications, or even possibly computer concentration. The issue is that I have 6 children and homeschool so taking CLEP or DSST exams or other out of the house exams is very difficult.  I also keep putting off just getting started and need to just START but I need to figure out a solid plan and do it. I'm wondering what the easiest and most cost effective way to start is... preferably taking courses through Saylor/study dot com/davar/etc where I can take as many tests at home and earn credit that way.  Can anyone help me figure this out? And I was wondering if the $200 a month for study dot com allows me to take tests for credit on multiple courses each month or only one...? same with Davar?  And does anyone have multiple degree plans to let me download and peruse?

Welcome!
I know you were already given a link to the Wiki.  I. personally, read through the forum posts for weeks and checked out the Big 3 colleges' websites.  All that info helped so much!
I am not personally going for a degree (I already have what I need) but I too homeschool my twin boys so i understand time/energy constraints.  Take it slow.  Read through the posts and I bet as you think of questions you'll eventually find the answers on this forum.
Good luck!!  You CAN do it!
