Accredited Degree Earn Education
Q: How does one earn an accredited degree in six months for under
A:By enrolling in one of three universities in the US that offer people the chance to earn their degrees within 1 year at the most as long as they demonstrate possession of academic credit. The different sources of credit were described in the letter you received. Enrollment fees are about $500, testing fees run betwee $45 and $60 per test, and graduation fees run about another $500. "Ashworth College will allow people to pay as little as $35.00 per month to earn an accredited degree..." "...Does Excelsior do that?" Actualy, Excelsior has made a payment plan for their enrollment fees now (it depends on what school you take courses it to determine whether you can finance tuition fees for classes or not. I personally don't see that many problems w/ DETC degrees in the workplace. I know a couple of people where I work that have gotten their job because their degree. I think you can even become a commissioned officer now in all four branches w/ a degree from a DETC school (I may not be right on this one I seem to recall reading the USAF allowing nationally accredited degrees). FBI is another example. Before they wouldn't even accept non-resident programs in general (DL, Assesment schools like TESC, Excelsior, & COSC, etc.). Now they accept national and regional accredited programs. I think the problem w/ DETC is trying to pursue further education w/ a degree from a school accredited by them. Some schools will not admit you into their graduate program, nor will they transfer undergrad credit towards a degree, just because it is DETC (fair? I personally don't think so.. But, I think it is really up to the school). In most countries, academic institutions are recognized by that country's ministry of education or its equivalent. In the United States, we do not have a national or government-regulated system of recognition. Independent regional accreditation boards are responsible for the accreditation of American academic institutions. For that reason, a foreign degree from a nationally recognized institution becomes equivalent to a degree from a regionally accredited institution in the United States. Each NACES member approaches a foreign document from the same basic perspective.
