In your opinion, what is the best online college courses to take? Getting a degree online, etc.

As far as pricing, time online, finding help if needed etc. If you have done this with a specific accredited college,can you give me a link to go to. I see so many, but, don't know what to choose from :)

  • I go to Baker and I love it. It is a very popular school in Michigan that has many on ground campuses as well so its not entirely an online school. I can complete through my doctorate entirely online though...which I love and my degree comes from Baker reference to it being online for employers who are leery of online education. I have loved it! It offers a ton of degree options too. The link is just and you can see what they have to offer!

  • I'm not sure what to take, but I can tell you NOT to go into medical transcription. At least for me, it was a waste of time and money. They tell you, you can make $40,000 a year easily which is completely false!

  • I go to University of Phoenix and am almost done with my AA and will continue to my bachelors but with National University. My parents both graduated from National so I know they are a good & accredited college. So is University of Phoenix. I also went to Kaplan and I would watch with them they are pretty sleazy. I am a psych major.

  • I got to Liberty University ( It's not bad. It's about $3000 for 12 credit hours and is very easy. Only downside is the online is like on campus and some of the classes are very religious which can be a problem if you aren't Christian. I use to go to University of Maryland University College ( but had problems with them due to my scholarship. Both are accreditted.
