There are a lot of factors that make a difference when transferring old college credits towards a new degree.
- Accreditation - The accreditation of the school you earned your diploma from will determine which schools will likely accept your transfer credits. Transfer credits from schools that are regionally accredited are the most widely accepted.
- GPA - Most schools will accept transfer courses that carry a grade of "C" or better. However, some schools require a slightly higher GPA.

You also mention the desire to earn life or work experience credit. Be careful when looking for schools that claim to accept life experience credit— scams are rampant!
Thankfully there are a number of fully accredited, reputable online schools that work with adult students to turn life experience into college credit. Thomas Edison State College, Western Governors University, and Excelsior University are all great options.

Keep in mind that these schools will still require you to complete a substantial 'chunk' of your bachelors degree at that school. You will not be able to earn a degree exclusively from your transfer and life experience credit.
Best of luck!
