They usually won't transfer all your credits from a two year course. They want as much of your money as they can get.I thought you also have to do an internship. Maybe that is only for a PE?
That is why he needs to inquire about a transfer plan now, and should be working to fulfill the requirements of the university's 4-year program while at the community college. Also it is likely he can do his internship with his current employer, but that is the last step and he has a lot of classes to get through first.
You mentioned going thru the NJATC. I know in my local there is an accreditation program which can get the people who went through the apprenticeship up to 48 college credits at local schools. Talk to your hall about it.
Good advice, many programs recommended by the American Council on Education can be transferred as college credit and this is something that should be investigated prior to registration.
I looked at Va Tech and Ga Tech requirements and they were less than the ones I posted earlier from Washington State (133 vs 180) and could be done in 4 years with 33 credits per year.
Completing 33 credits per year while working fulltime is not very realistic. A bachelor’s degree is totally possible, but it's an investment that will take some time.

If you want it bad enough, don't let a weakness in Math discourage you. Its no cake walk, but it is attainable. I had to start at algebra and trigonometry before being able to take the core Math and Science courses. There are benefits to doing it in one shot as opposed to chipping away at it over time, but everyone's situation is different.
Good point, same here; I didn't take enough math in high school and had to take a couple prerequisites before even being able to begin the math classes required for the degree. I’d advise the OP start out with something easy that interests him just to get in the groove of taking classes and doing homework. Then when it comes to math, do all those classes back to back so that you don’t forget stuff and follow that up with all the physics courses; physics was like math story problems from :censored: hell.
I just want to learn to make $50k/yr trading stocks, :laughing:
I would like to just win the lotto and retire. :yes:
