I’m brainstorming an online degree program for DH. He has an AA but never finished school. It’s holding him back, career-wise, and I’m wondering if:
a) there is such a thing
b) if anyone in the hive has experience with that type of program
Any and all thoughts are appreciated!

I would look into public colleges & universities in your area that might have an online program. Anything national is probably a degree-mill of sorts and should probably be avoided.

@MmeVT: +1 I worked at a local Community College and to get a “real” degree I also agree to look at local colleges and find their on line classes. There are a lot of shady for-profit colleges in the U.S

I agree with the PPs. I’d find a “brick and mortar” 4-year university that offers online classes. I think that would be much more reputable than the for-profit, online-only type places.

I think online is a bad idea. I used to work in HR before law school and an online degree was not looked on favorably by the people hiring. It was pretty much no better than no BA. Find an affordable state school with an evening program.

Penn State has a ‘world’ campus which means online degree, it doesn’t say ONLINE on your diploma, just Penn State which is still pretty well respected.
There are probably other schools as well.

@oracle: How has no one said Ashworth yet! I got to Ashworth for $55 a month ($1200 a semester with no-interest finanacing). They are an accredited college that have been in business since the 80s!
They’re the cheapest legitimate college out there!

I second the comment about Penn State world campus. I know a few peeps who have gotten their masters through it, and it seemed rigorous enough based on their comments.
