Do I Have Time to Complete a Degree Program?
Earning a degree shows that you have gained a high level of skills in an area of study. However, completing a four-year program may not be the most efficient way to spend your time if you already have a bachelor's degree. Some positions in software development require specific technical expertise that you can learn by completing a shorter program. If you already have a degree, you may want to look into programming-related certifications that can provide you with the skills you need for a role in the tech industry.
Will I Be Accepted by a Reputable Program?
When you apply for admission to a computer science program, each university will look at your educational and professional background. However, they will consider more than just your resume. Standardized test scores and transcripts hold more weight for students applying to colleges directly after high school. As a working adult, your life experiences, professional skills, and even volunteer work are factors that will also be considered. Don't let a fear of rejection stop you from pursuing a degree that will help you advance your career.
