What is the Best Online College?
Like most other questions about which Online College is best, it really depends on what you want out of the training and what field you'll be going into.
How to check an online college's accreditation?
- Search the college's website to see if it makes any reference to accreditation. Make a note of the specific agency that has given the accreditation
- Check the credibility of the accreditation agency with the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Its database is linked in the resource section. Questionable online colleges will sign up with a dubious accreditation agency or create its own agency. Those credentials are worthless for transferring credits or proving that your degree is legitimate.
