Can I take required general education courses online?

By | December 1, 2015

I currently attend Suffolk University in Madrid and I want to continue my education next year. Because the economy in the US is so bad right now and college is so expensive, my parents are worried that if I don’t get financial aid for next year, I won’t be able to go to school at all. Last night I considered the option of just taking some general education courses on the internet (such as math, American Lit, science, etc. ) for next year or maybe just next semester and working at the same time to earn money for my next year of school. By doing this I would also be able to stay in Spain which is what I really want to do.

I guess my main question is will the credits I earned this year be able to be counted with credits I would earn from online courses if I were to transfer to another university in the next two years or so? I just want all my credits to transfer correctly, but I don’t know anything about this. Thank you!

    It is possible to earn a four-year degree entirely online these days, but you won’t do it for free. All accredited colleges and universities – the only responsible places to seek such degrees – require fees for each and every credit hour you earn through them online…Where you’d save money would be not having to pay room and board…that is, if your parents are willing to help you with your education by allowing you to continue to live and eat at home while you pursue your studies.
