There are a number of online universities and training programs that will give you a 'quality' education (for a price).
The most famous one is the University of Phoenix, which has a countless number of commercials and online ads claiming that you can start your life fresh, get a degree, and find a rewarding job. It's that easy!
But should you really take these programs? The answer, for University of Phoenix, seems like a pretty resounding NO.
A simple google of "University of Phoenix scam" comes up with some scary posts, like this one, where one man claims that his degree consisted solely of him paying $50,000 to fill out a bunch of thoughtless papers and get a useless degree.
Unfortunately, students at many good universities also experience this 'scam'. The online University of Phoenix takes it one step further, however, by accepting ANYONE into their program. Here's an example from the aforementioned article:
"1. They enroll anyone and everyone meaning if you can't get accepted at any 2 year or 4 year college, they will accept you, even if you failed your S.A.T. exam.
2. You don't have to take any SAT or other scholastic achievement college entrance examinations to enroll.
3. You don't have to take the GRE (Graduate Record Examination) to enroll in graduate level study.
4. The majority of colleges and universities in the U.S.A. state that if you have been out of college for 10 years, all of your college credits that you have earned become expired, meaning, you have to start all over again, as a freshman with 0 college credits. University of Phoenix Online will still accept your college credits even if you've been out of school for 20 years.
5. They will take life experiences as college credit.
6. They enroll people with extremely bad English grammar and writing skills.
7. They say that they'll train you and teach you job skills like how professionals do it in the real world and they don't.
8. Classes are an easy 5 weeks of typing papers and relying on the person with the most knowledge to pass the learning team.
9. Classes are taught by facilitators, not instructors or teachers."
Sounds way too sketchy for me! However, if you're looking in getting a few shady looking degrees under your built in order to apply to some equally shady jobs, then by all means, look into more online degrees.
