How to get an online degree

A lot of people would like a perfect degree, particularly those people who have experience in crappy, minimum-wage jobs. These individuals feel as if they're within a never-ending cycle. Recently, there has been a flourishing of competitive, online universities which offer high-paying, high-quality online degrees.
Many people who start online school just don’t have the time to attend full-time classes, or even night classes. Put simply, online degrees are the most convenient way to get the job you want now. Even my university, a traditional brick-and-mortar institution, is beginning to offer “Distance education”, which allows current students to take courses from other partner universities online.


However, it can be challenging to research online degrees. This is primarily because many of the so-called “colleges” you find online are not properly authorized, and are just trying to scam you into giving them your money. Moreover, numerous colleges and universities don’t provide the individualized education as well as guidance from which true learning emerges. This is absurd, especially because the tuition costs for these online universities are so high.

The good news is, there are several internet colleges or universities that are completely legitimate, and will significantly improve your chances of attaining your dream job. I’ve put together a quick ranking of the top three accredited online schools.

1) DEVRY
Devry is the #1 student-rated online university in the world. It’s completely licensed by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Students have the option of pursuing an associate's, bachelor’s or master’s diploma in a number of different fields.  Many of their programs are specifically tailored to modern career paths, and will give you a leg up over a person with a more general education.  Like other online schools, Devry is extremely accommodating and will meet your schedule needs.

2) STRAYER
Coming in 2nd place is Strayer University, which is one of the top spots for online adult students. The focus is on intensive, group-based learning among professional adults. Since the average age of a Strayer student is 34 years old, you can be assured that you are working with mature peers. Among the three online schools we’ve chosen here, Strayer has the highest-quality professors. They will work with students on an individual basis, ensuring maximum learning. While it placed slightly behind Devry, both schools are a great place to get online degrees.

3) KAPLAN
Last but not least is Kaplan University, which is the best place to earn an online master’s degree. Often described as the most trusted online university in the country, Kaplan students enjoy great success in their chosen educational field, with a large percentage employed in their field of study within 6 months of graduation. This is largely due to Kaplan’s focus on continuing education and certificate programs, which are designed for responsible, adult members of the workforce who seek to upgrade their skills. As with all online degrees, Kaplan will fit your schedule perfectly.

Well, information is information. Some find that the peer-relations involved in a class can help people retain more.

I think actually going to a university is better for you. Though its probably cheaper to get one online.

A lot of these places are just paper mills for diplomas. You're usually better off taking online courses at a local community college. In California, it's only $20 per unit.

Unless you're doing something very specialized and the online college has a good track record for employment, I would personally just go to a local community college instead and take online courses there.

very informative! I always wonder if my $200k college education was actually worth that much
