Most doctorate programs expect you to already have a masters degree and some type of license. Like a masters degree you will want to make sure it is accredited by the APA or other professional accreditation. For a bachelors you are looking at 4 years, another 2-3 for a masters and then another 4 for a doctorate. So about 10 years total if you want to be a PhD level psychologist. Fair warning that the APA has not embraced online degrees. You will not be able to complete a masters in psychology or a doctorate in psychology online. You will also need to look up what your state requires for licensure.

"Fair warning that the APA has not embraced online degrees."
Unless it's through a state college. Many Universities now section off and offer courses online.
