funderbird, I see you are 33 years old, so I'll assume you've been in the Navy for a few years. And, since you're going to San Clemente, probably some kind of a tech rate.
I got my BS in Liberal Studies from New York Regents College, which is now Excelsior College. I'm a nuke, so I had a lot of elective credits from the nuclear power training pipeline, and I was an EM1 at the time, and they gave a ton of credits for military experience, too.
I took the five CLEP general exams, including the English Comp with essay, to get the freshman year Gen Ed requirements done. That knocked out 30 Semester hours, and I had enough overall from the military experience/schools to get me over the required 120 sem-hrs, but I still needed 25 upper level credits (nuke power school was only worth a few). Regents let me take GRE Subject exams to get the upper level credits. I took Sociology, Revised Education, and History, and I got 42 upper level credits, plus some more lowers (some areas of these three exams overlap credit-wise).
Keep in mind, I did this the first time I was on shore duty, back in 1996. I was stationed in Bangor WA, working in the nuclear repair department at the time. My hours weren't stable, with occasional shift work, and my wife and I had a newborn baby at the time. Testing out of everything seemed a logical move for me. I don't think I'm the smartest nuke in the ocean, but I've always been good at multiple choice exams. The CLEP English Comp exam wasn't any harder than the stuff I did in high school Comp (thank you, Iowa school systems!). The total amount of time I spent taking exams was less than 20 hours, and I put maybe 2-3 hours into the ARCO CLEP study guide (Humanities section). Due to the frequency of test dates between the Bangor sub base and the shipyard in Bremerton, I was able to get everything done in six months. I spent ZERO hours in an actual college classroom.
Have you looked at NKO yet? Thomas Edison also offers some good programs, with some actual courses required. For my world, Nuclear Engineering Technology seems to be popular, but I just wanted a BS, and I wasn't too picky about what.
