WHAT IS BA IN 4 WEEKS?

BA in 4 Weeks is a userís manual for adult learners. It details the process of gathering credit by examination and converting it into a bachelor diploma. The series seeks to provide a template that you can apply in whole or in part to your particular set of circumstances where and when you think it appropriate.

 

 

DOES BA IN 4 WEEKS CONFER ONLINE DEGREES?

No. BA in 4 Weeks is not a distance education college or online university. It is the articulation of a systematic approach to earning a degree that has had a remarkable track record of success. It is the most comprehensive and detailed work available on earning a degree by examination, either in traditional print or on the web. It has one other fairly unique characteristic; itís free.

 

 

WHAT KIND OF INSTITUTIONS ARE LISTED IN 4 WEEKS?

The only universities and colleges featured in BA in 4 Weeks are the legitimate kind which confer degrees, diplomas and certificates that enjoy the widest possible recognition, acceptance, and portability, in the U.S. and elsewhere.

 

All schools listed whether offering college credit, full online bachelor degrees or online master degrees, are either, state funded, and recognized by the government of the country as an institution of higher learning, or, in the case of US institutions, they may be public or private, but they must be regionally accredited.


Note that there are many institutions with other types of quite legitimate accreditation, such as DETC accreditation (some of whom advertise their wares on this website), but it is my judgment that those accorded regional accreditation or the foreign equivalent thereof, best meet the standard of providing online degrees, diplomas and certificates that enjoy the widest possible recognition, acceptance, and portability. That is, they confer degrees that provide the holder the greatest marginal utility.

 

 

WHO IS BA IN 4 WEEKS FOR?

The series was originally written to assist and encourage those adults who had failed to complete an undergraduate degree, and who now sought some method of translating current competencies into an accredited college degree. The guides are now also being used by an increasing number of younger readers to augment or replace traditional credit gathering practices.

 

 

WHY, ďBA IN 4 WEEKSĒ?

Four weeks is the practical minimum amount of time in which this process can reasonably be completed. The title, BA in 4 Weeks, was purposely chosen as a vehicle to convey that possibility and to provide a convenient platform for exposition of methods and techniques. It acts as a framework upon which these latter elements may be hung.

 

 

WHO CAN COMPLETE A BA DEGREE IN 4 WEEKS?

Those learners who already possess the full compliment of required competencies, require no new learning, and only need demonstrate those competencies so that they may be properly validated and officially recognized by way of conferral of an accredited bachelorís degree.

 

 

WHAT ABOUT THE REST OF US WHO DO NOT YET POSSESS ALL REQUIRED COMPETENCIES?

There is no imperative that the process be wrapped up in a month. The process may be completed in as little as 4 Weeks1, but does not have to be completed in that time frame. Clearly, learners can pace themselves as best suits their unique abilities and circumstances.

 

In any case, it is expected that the great majority of the intelligent and curious who remain engaged, may (if they so choose) complete all requirements within some minimum period ranging - one month to one year. Should circumstance, ability, or preference dictate some other time scale, fine.
