How to obtain a degree for cryptography

I am only 16 and cannot attend university yet. Is there any other ways of obtaining the degree for instance by studying independently and then taking the relevant exams?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
You might find a lot of tutorials on line for any number of courses. What you need to do is find out what is required for a certification or any pre-requisites. Study those courses and when you feel you are ready, find out when and where they offer the certification exams. They may not be local but usually a city or two away and can still run a few hundred dollars. A degree is a whole different subject. Most colleges and universities do offer credits for life experience but none that I know of will just let you take an exam and get the degree without paying for the credits needed for it.

    Why did not you attend University while you are only sixteen? There are plenty of opportunities to attend university and complete your basic academic qualifications. In data/telecommunications field, Cryptography has a specific security requirements, such as authentication, privacy or confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation. It is a part of security. You can learn, but as you mentioned, various institutions have their own policy to admit for course/certification.

    Perhaps start taking math courses online that could lead to a specialty in crypto down the road?
