Find info concerning Iowa State University graduate certificates, registering for required degree courses, and taking practice exams for free online. Which college degrees give you the best chances of finding employment after graduation? Completing graduate certificates, for example, can give you an advantage in job recruiting in fields that demand analytical and creative skills, such as teaching at the university level. Check with the graduate department for an updated schedule of course registration dates, a list of open classes, and major requirements. Many graduate certificate programs will have advanced placement testing available if you're seeking college credit via AP exams.

Online courses promote faculty innovation, by requiring professors to develop new course materials. Distance education allows students who can't make the commute to campus to take accredited courses. If you so choose, online education gives you the opportunity to take difficult courses that won't show up on your transcript. Alternatively, you may be able to complete online credits for a grade. Advanced Placement exams (AP Exams) are offered in a variety of subjects, offering college credit for classes that you have taken. Test yourself with free practice exams, before visiting the College Board website to register to take your actual AP Tests. If you earn a score of 3 or higher on an AP subject exam, you may be granted advanced placement in college.

The best college for a student isn't necessarily the highest-ranking school in the Forbes or US News listings, but rather the college that offers their students the best career chances. If you remain true to your career interests, not just going after salary, your overall job earnings will increase as you gain experience. However, if your focus is more on salary alone, there's a higher risk that you'll suffer early signs of burnout, and be forced to change careers later on. Technical training programs are a low-cost alternative to attending a regular four-year university, and you can earn good money as a highly-skilled, technical specialist. By taking some of your required degree courses online, you may be able to graduate a semester early, thus saving money on tuition. If you're currently employed, you can take online courses in your free time to advance your career. Massive Open Online Courses are known as MOOCs, utilizing cloud-based software, interactive platforms such as Blackboard, and mobile apps.

An online degree may be just as marketable as a college degree that was earned on campus. Udemy online learning is a new startup with backing from the founders of Groupon. Similarly, Khan Academy now offers over 4,000 micro-lectures served through YouTube. Then, there's Coursera, a competing software platform, with millions of enrolled students from around the world. Recently, MIT announced that their open courseware platform (OCW) will be available to students and instructors at no cost.
