What Makes Hubbard College’s Associate Degree Different from Other Business Administration Degrees? My experience at the Hubbard College of Administration (HCA) has been different in many ways than any prior school I’ve attended: The New York Collective, Hollywood’s MI (Musician’s Institute), you name it. At other schools I registered for each semester and then was burdened by the class schedule: One class at 10:30 another at 1:00 and then one at 6.  And that’s just one day! So I’d end up having too much time to kill between class, usually not very productive time as I’d be on campus, away from my home where I had other things to tend to. When I started HCA I was happy to find out that they have a self-paced college degree, which you study in a classroom at your own pace. So I could make my own schedule and not be restricted. Here’s how it works: there are 4 periods per day, each about 2 hours long, one in the morning, two in the afternoon and one after dinner. (I currently go for the 2 afternoon periods 1-6pm with a break between for some food) Some others who work all day do the night period after dinner, so they can still get a degree without having to quit work and get a student loan. So whatever schedule conflicts I have– jury duty, flat tire, meteor shower, etc… I can always put in my time at school. It’s great, the more periods I put in each week, the faster my degree goes. It depends on me, hey that’s novel… Now I’m getting my associate degree at Hubbard College on my own time! Cassidy Turbin, Student at Hubbard College
