What they would miss is:

1. A "certification" that they have learned the information and skills.
2. The opportunity to develop interpersonal skills specific to the degree, although this can be done without formal "school" as well.
3. The opportunity provided to "practice" the profession. For example lab courses and practical experiences through internships and co-op programs. Although, again, some of this can be replicated outside of the university as well.

They would also miss the opportunity to develop non-educational interpersonal skills. There is more to college than taking a course and passing tests.
