Washington State University fits some of your requirements, not all but I thought I would just let you know!

They are accredited and I have not heard of any issues accepting previously earned credits. As for short courses, they are a semester long and do have due dates. But, other than due dates you can work on the stuff on your own time (I work full time and fit it around my schedule). Occasionally there are video camera proctered exams but I have only had one or two a semester. You can take as little as one course or as many as 7. They offer “intersession courses” that are three weeks long and you can take one class. These are offered between semesters, approx. 3 times a year. There are shorter summer session courses as well!

If you have any other questions, just let me know!

@Tyme4AWedNN2014:  

American Military University (I got my BS there)

U Maryland University College

University of New Hampshire

All three do not follow a typical semester schedule. Classes start every couple of months so its really flexible. I wish I had gone with UMUC.

@BluePeaches:  

Oh yeah and some other options are Thomas Edison State College (I took some classes through them…very hard!) and, of course, Excelsior. If you are military, try looking through the DANTES catalogs online as well as SOC for your branch

Is there a particular major you are interested in?

SUNY (State University of New York) Empire State College is online and accredited, I work at a university and many of my colleagues take online classes through them because it is accredited, not one of the degree mill schools. http://www.esc.edu/

I’m getting my Master’s through the University of the Incarnate Word. They have 8 week terms, which I know you said you didn’t want. I would say about 75% of the students are military. I have only had one class where group projects were required, and it really wasn’t too bad. No webcam lectures or proctered exams.

What I really like about UIW is that they are a strong brick and mortar school as well. They’ve been around forever, and even have two high schools affiliated with them, one of which I attended 🙂

I take one class a term, but many students take two or more. Textbooks are free for undergrad and you don’t pay a lot of the school fees since it’s online and you’re not using the facilities provided by the University anyway. They claim to work really well with previously earned credit.

Here’s the site for more info: http://online.uiw.edu/

I would look into Ashford University. I know they are military friendly and classes are 5 weeks long. Classes consist of discussions, quizzes, and a final paper. It doesnt hurt to check it out! Good luck in whatever you find!
