General education or teaching degrees can take four to seven years, depending on if you choose to earn a master's degree as well. Some states require educators to have a post-bachelors degrees before considering hiring them.

Each college will have their own start dates and rotation cycle of classes. This is different from a traditional classroom setting where class time is set and there is no expediting the semester. Online classes are offered at a faster pace, with lectures being offered more often and increased class loads so students can expedite their ending date. Traditional college that offer online degrees may follow the regular semester with the traditional classes.
