Online college class and career advice
Alright so I have some questions about this online community college thing like:


When can I do it?


Where do I find these classes?


Do they cost money? If they do cost money how much do they cost?

How long will it take?

Will I be able to go to a great college after I am done with these classes?

Must the school allow a program for you to do it?


And career advice

Should I be a zoologist or a professor in zoology?

If I am a professor do I still get to write scientific papers?

Do I get to travel the world for research?

If I am a zoologist, will I make little money in which I can't have kids?

If you answer my questions thank you.

Country of residence?

If america, pick a college, most have online programs. Classes cost the same as if you are physically at the campus if not more (some have a "online" fee), how are you paying for it? typically a class costs about $742 ea here in virginia USA...each, not counting textbooks which can range from $50 to $250 depending on how many books are required for that class. I have two unemployed archaeologist friends who hold master's degrees, both have been without jobs of any kind for several years. One just got a job 2 weeks ago at a call center....both have traveled the world on digs, most of the time they are unpaid..it seems there is one overseer who gets financed a salary, the rest are students or volunteers. I am not comparing zoology with their work, I am merely stating becareful what you wish for, research the employment viability of the path you choose to follow.

How long will it take? 2.5 years typically for a 4 year degree in an accelerated program (8 week semesters0

Will I be able to go to a great college after I am done with these classes? It is wise to get as much of the lower classes, and any others the higher college will accept before going to the higher college as gthe cost for those classes is much higher usually. Also ensure the community college is regionally accredited....which means the university will accept their credits.

Must the school allow a program for you to do it? yes, it must be in their program.

best of luck.

My school does not have a online course program, so I must wait until I graduate highschool to start at community college.

Online courses work like this,

1. You are given a window that has all your assignments in it.
2. You do the assignments within the time frame of when it says.

3. You find them on the college webpage that you attend. You sign up for college, pay them money for the classes. Seriously though, talk to the Councillor of the school. They will answer all these for you.

4. Depends on the degree your getting.

5. What do you mean go to a great college? Your already attending a online college? Are you wanting to do all your community college courses online and transfer?

6. yes

7. I can't answer that for you. I have no idea what you want to do.

8. Is that what you want to do?

9. Yes

10. Depends

11. Depends
