Accredited Online Degrees For People With Prior College Credits?
Q: Are there accredited online degree programs that may require less
Are there Online colleges that are genuine and accredited?
A:If you are wanting to go on to graduate school and get a Master's Degree after you get your Bachelor's, make sure that the school you want to go to will accept your online Bachelor's Degree -- they might not. Are there examples of traditional universities refusing to accept degrees earned online from accredited schools? I ask because the admissions officials surveyed regarding this question. He asked how acceptable a degree would be earned 100% non-residentially. Of the 337 responses, 93% said they always would, the other 7% said they almost always would. That sounds very supportive of non-resident study, and suggests your caution may not be supported by the evidence. But it would be important to know the exceptions, if there are any. I am enrolled in the Excelsior Real World Computer Information Systems program. You can received up to 24 hours of credit for IT certifications such as Novell, CompTIA and Microsoft. Excelsior is a member of the University of the State of New York. All their programs are accredited at the highest level and recognized by the US Department of Education. In a nutshell; in the US earning a Bachelors Degree normally includes the successful completion of around 120 semester hours of credit. The credit value is pre-determined on a per course basis, normally 3 hours per course. So this means you must complete approximately 40 courses. Of this, 50% are generally in your major, with 25-40% at or above the Junior or Senior (3rd and 4th year levels). The remaining 50% must include General Education and Liberal Arts studies specific to the curriculum. The Real World CIS is a non traditional degree, it can be earned entirely by examination. Such as, the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) or Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES) Subject Standardardized Tests (DSST). Excelsior also offers several correspondence courses. The certification examination program offered by the Institute for Certification of Computing Professionals (ICCP) can be used to satisfy the major and upper level requirements. http://www.iccp.org (These are all just examples). You can also complete courses through a recognized regionally accredited college and transfer the coursework into your program. It is very flexible.
