What is an on-line Distance Learning institution and how does it work?
An online distance learning institution does not operate a campus like traditional
educational institutions do. Due to the benefits of online technology, applicants come
from across the United States and around the world. Anyone with a
high school
diploma and years of significant experience, skills, knowledge, and/or expertise in a
given field of study can apply.  Applicants are accepted from across the United States
and around the world. All students are evaluated on an individual basis according to
predefined criteria established by each institution.

Life Experience degrees are awarded to individuals who have demonstrated core
competencies of skill and knowledge in their prospective career field. Schools that
offer Life Experience Degrees use a Prior Learning Assessment to assess your prior
experience. Your prior experience can include: military service, work experience, prior
college, certificates of achievement, travel, professional development courses and
workshops, community and volunteer services, and much more. The information the
school reviews needs to be verifiable. Many schools will request more information if
they feel that the information is not accurate or incomplete. Some of the more popular
non-traditional institutions include the following:
-     Almeda University
-     Ashwood University
-     Breyer State University
-     Suffield University
-     Redding University
-     Ellington University
-     Rochville University
-     Bronte University
-     Glendale University
-     Madison University
-     Columbus University
Non-traditional Colleges and Universities have developed Degree Programs that can
provide you a Legal Diploma from your life experience. To qualify, most all the schools
require you to fill out an application form with prior experience. Many of the schools
provide the review service for free, but some will charge up to $100.00 per application.
If you have met the minimum requirements for the degree that you are seeking; you
can expect to receive your Diploma in 5 to 20 business days. The actual number of
days varies from school to school.
