    Also, do bosses see enough credibility in online master’s degree to grant payraise to an employee who attains one besides working hard and doing a good job? Will employers consider someone who at least got an online degree from an accredited school if not a big name school? I’m thinking about getting an online master’s since I need to keep steady with my current job. For any hiring managers or bosses who’ll answer this post, what’s your take?

    I think their should be an asterick beside an online degree. From my experience a lot of what you learn is from interacting with teachers, and other students. I know some of you onliners will forcefully disagree. Too bad you can’t say it to my face.

    I am currently enrolled in an online accounting program to obtain my bachelors degree in accounting. I’m curious as to whether or not a person can attend 2 different schools at the same time. While still attending my school, I wanted to know if I could apply to another to obtain an accounting diploma online. I just thought it might further my career to have as much training as possible, but I didn’t know if you could actually do this or not. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I’m already pursuing a degree from an urban university in USA, but I was thinking of getting an online degree from an accredited college also at a cheaper rate.
    I have little to no idea about such degrees. I’m really confused on a lot of grounds like :

    1. How will we give the exams ?
    2. Any chances of financial aid for International Students in USA ?
    3. After completing the coursework, how will we receive the degree ?
    4. Can we complete it in very short time like 2 years (Bachelor’s) ?
    5. Can we complete online degrees while already studying on F-1 Visa ?

    I’m considering online colleges like Baker’s (MI) or Unv.of Phoenix.

    A few details, which I felt I should add :

    1. How exactly is Baker College ?
    I’m asking this cause it’s the cheapest & has my area of interest i.e. Computer SCIENCE.

    2. Do International students really get scholarships for online degrees ?

    3. I have seen that each course is 6 weeks long, so can I opt for multiple courses at the same time, which together will run for 6 weeks straight ?

    Im a sophmore in high school. I have a 3.7 GPA and always score above mastery on the standardized test. I really like staying at home, and I dont think I want to leave home for a better education. I was wondering, is there any online engineering programs? If so, are they actually acceptable, as in will people look at it and say ,”dont hire him he got his degree online”, or will they look at it just as if I attended a campus? Plus do you learn just as well with this? Thanks!

    I am wanting to go back to school for a master’s degree (I have already obtained my B.A. in Psychology) and am wondering if anyone had thoughts on online degree programs. I’m not sure if I would be getting as good of an education or if it looks as good to employers. Any personal experiences, suggestions, or thoughts?
    My B.A. was not earned from an online program (if that is not clear enough) so this online stuff is completely new

    I am in a position where I am going to a 4 year university, but I may have to change to an online degree program because of my work schedule. Do companies look down on degrees obtained online? I am going back to get an accounting degree adn was considering Phoenix University.

    I heard that businesses actually look fondly on people with online degrees because it shows self discipline and motivation. Any advice?

    I’m considering going back to my original university but only in the capacity of a distance-education student as it’s over an hour and a half away from where I live now.

    They have a full online degree program in the area that I want. I think I know the answer to my question but I’m still trying to find some clarity on the difference between the two degrees, if there is even one.

    I know if you get an online degree from a totally online school there may be a difference but if you go to a traditional 4 year university and do an online degree program there is it considered a BA-in-whatever and not, say, an online-BA-in-whatever? (hope that makes sense!)

    How can you really learn effectively from taking classes on the internet? These for-profit schools like University of Phoenix and Grand Canyon University are taking the seriousness out of degrees. I know that they don’t even require you to take the GRE’s to get into their grad programs…. I feel like online degrees are taking the guts out of what was once believed to be achieved through hard work and personal collaboration. Why do you think most of these schools do not offer science degrees like Engineering, Physics or Chemistry?
    RobWolf, I’m just curious, what type of business do you own and what type of students (degrees) do you employ?

    Im looking into a vet.tech. degree from PennFoster the degree is accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association and requires two 9 week practicums. Penn Foster is also fully accredited. While this all sounds good to me and looks good on papers how will this look to future employers?? The woman at the front desk at my vets office got a degree in business management online, and got a job but theres a difference between answering a phone and giving a shot ( no disrespect intended). Have any of you gotten/ not gotten hired, hired or not hired due to an online degree??
