Chukles, one of the site administrators, earned his Masters. My ex-husband earned an Associates, Bachelors and Masters all while on active duty. Of course some stations are easier to go to school but it is doable and not impossible.

As long as you stay persistent and knock out at least one class a semester it can be done. It might take a long time, but it can be done.

Gears-what advice do you have for those attatched to a cutter? If underway time is a minimum of 2 out/ 2 in how do you complete the course work? From past comments I have seen internet described as sketchy during patrols...

Many cutters have Internet connectivity, and some even have classrooms set up underway.
You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

interesting....my son was on the Bertholf and he said that internet was spotty, and he couldn't imagine doing classes on line while out on patrol. He is probably only about 20 credits shy of his BA and I made him promise he would complete his degree when he decided that "school was no longer what he wanted to do"....lol

Most online schools only require you to log in once a week. Actual participation likely varies from program to program. I would recommend he find a REALLY flexible one. 2 on 2 off watches are brutal, but if can find two hours for assignments a day he can probably handle one class at a time.

Man, at 20 credits shy it's almost not worth it NOT to finish the degree. Hope he can find the time and determination to get through it!
