    Not sure if I'm on the right forum, if anybody can recommend which one to go to that'd be great.

    My (graduate) school coordinator just informed me, A YEAR LATER, that I'm missing credits so they can't issue me my diploma (I had deferred thesis submission so I wasn't supposed to get my diploma until recently..but still.. they could have told me earlier there was a mixup.). I am beyond pissed. I am missing 4 credits, so that is 1 class. The coordinator suggests I come back (I live on a different continent) to take another course at the university or take a class at a

    'regionally accredited US institution or a recognized university listed by the International Association of Universities and/or European University Association.'

    Do you guys know of any distance learning universities? I'm not even sure where to begin. The class must not go towards the degree's requirements. I figure I can just take one class right? I'd want an accelerated, distance learning programme as cheap as possible. Was thinking of the Open University. ANy help with this would be appreciated.

    Tbh I think its your responsibility to know how many credits you have and how many you need. The OU sounds good, am sure it must be on the list. You really need more info from them as to which courses count.

    Four credits if it is UK equivalent sounds small as modules tend to be 120 and 30 credits, so it may be more than that..

    Hey,I do/did accept my responsibility in mixing up my credits. it was also the job of my department’s three coordinators to check that students were on track for graduation, as they did with another person who also miscalculated her credits. Anyhow, thanks for the response
