Answer:

If the school offering the degree has an open enrollment or open admissions policy, then a high-school student who has completed a GED would be able to enroll in classes. Most schools have biology programs and offer biology courses online. Credits earned from a community college or other accredited programs should transfer to another two-year college or a four-year college after graduation from high school. Before enrolling in any program, be sure that the program is accredited by a reputable accrediting body. It is also important to manage time wisely, particularly when studying online, and to keep up with assignments and lectures. Some schools offer synchronous learning, meaning that students have to attend virtual lectures at specific times of day. This provides real-time interaction with professors and other students, but the schedule might conflict with high school classes. Many colleges offer night classes to accommodate students who work full-time, which might not conflict with high school obligations.

Some schools offer dual credit or dual enrollment programs that facilitate enrollment in college courses and high school at the same time. High school guidance counselors and community college admissions offices may have information about local opportunities.
