I dropped out of high school and would have graduated this year. Planning on going to CC but dunno if I should get GED first?

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys, I have no idea where on Reddit is a good place to start with this question, so I'm starting here. This is a small subreddit so maybe someone can help recommend somewhere I'll get a bit of visibility.

Background: I am 31 years old. I have ~170 quarter hour credits gained from 2006-2014. I do not have enough credits in my major to complete it, and they have changed the requirements since and I no longer qualify anyway. Nor do I still live in the same state I acquired these credits.

I have 11 years experience in a specialized field in which I was nationally certified and professionally licensed.

A year or so ago I switched career tracks altogether (the industry above was rough to get a job in and my current job was awful) and started working for a state agency in finance. While I may not stay in finance forever I plan to stay with the state.

Getting through career progression here is a lot easier with a degree. I am considering contacting the local community college about converting to an associates. But I thought, with that many credits, can I possibly get a bachelors in general studies? I have seen they exist but I don't know if any are available online, and take previous credits, and are actually decent places that will be taken seriously on a resume.

There is a local college I could attend but I would need to complete 45 more credits to qualify for their General Studies BA so I'm exploring all other options first.

I appreciate any advice that can be given. TIA!!!

I'm currently a law student who is on the fence of dropping out due to it not being what I imagine it would be like. But that presents a issue due to the fact that i dont know what else I could study in the future. Thats why i want to experiment with different career paths to hopefully find what i should start studying next year.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Folks,


I am 18 (19 in June) and I want to go back into full time education as I never finished my A levels. I am worried that I wont be able to do a Level 3 Extended Diploma in Forensic Science as I will be 19 by the time Id start.


Any advice on the matter is appreciated.

Dear Redditers,


With my nonprofit organization, I am co-organizing Science-Survival Kit (ssk.rhizomeacademy.org), a summer school in Croatia that teaches research and transversal-skills through project for adults. I think (ok, I am definitely biased) it's a really great program, but since we're relatively new to the game we're struggling to reach the right people who might be interested to apply.

Do you guys have any good suggestions?


Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

This is my first semester of college. Im doing 4 online classes, one of them being an 8 week course that opened today. I'm so freaking overwhelmed right now that I want to freaking cry. Within 2 weeks of enrolling my assistant manager quit so ive been working 50+ hours a week since mid January. My sons in sports so were dealing with practice along with regular household stress.
