Here are the books I recommend on the subject:
* "Accelerated Distance Learning
" by Homeschool Graduate Brad Voeller.
* or Bears Guide To Earning College Degrees Nontraditionally
Here's how it works: You pick and choose from online classes across the nation. All the work is done at home. All the results from those different online experiences are all sent to one distant location, to a real university. If you choose to do it all 4 years of college, some (but not all) of the upper level courses require you to fly to the distance location for testing once a quarter. That University will provide "accreditation" for all the credits that are earned. Those accredited transcripts will be sent the next University he wants to go to. It's possible to homeschool college for 1 quarter or all 4 years of college.
