Re: Universities On-Line
There was a spot on Dateline (I think) last night about career colleges. ITT Tech, U. of Pheonix, and Career Education Centers (maybe, I don't remember the name exactly) have all gotten in trouble with the government for misleading their students/other questionable practices.
Also, as has been stated, many of the spam emails you get are from non-accredited schools. Those degrees are worthless.
Many state universities and community colleges offer distance learning classes. I'd check out that avenue first.
