I learned from John Wilson at SOAR that there are great non-traditional college programs out there. These programs focus on the degree entirely, without requiring student to take the liberal arts foundations, like math, English, science, foreign language, etc. That means they’re in classes of interest to them, which will help them do better and be more motivated. Full Sail in Florida is the example I know of off the top of my head. These programs are expensive, but failing many semesters could cost a lot more in the end.
