I agree that you would probably be better off getting those upper-level biology/zoology courses in the classroom, lab and in the field. As for the other core courses and some electives you might want to check out Thomas Edison State College in Trenton, New Jersey. They are a fully-accrediated state school that will allow you to complete your entire degree by non-traditional means. You can just test out out of a lot of the basic core courses, and take courses on-line, by computer, correspondence courses and get credit for knowledge you have already gained through work experience, prior training, military courses, etc using their portfolio review process. They accept both resident and out-of-state students but out-of-state tuition is a bit higher.

Thomas Edison is not just a 'paper mill' and getting credit for courses in not a cake walk but it is viable for those who work and have schedules that make it difficult to attend classes. They offer both Associate and Bachelor Degree programs.
