  • YES, American Intercontinental University (regionally accredited like most other brick and mortar schools), Colorado Technical University (also regionally accredited), do a google search for online universities/colleges, just be sure they are regionally accredited or else it could be a problem.

  • Just about, literally, every college and universities no matter number of years suggested for degrees or certificates have degrees and certificates that can be earned totally on line. I'd go to u s government dept. of education portal and call their higher education division. Personally I'd rather have a college/u federally approved as well as regionally. Sallie Maes are federal for $college.

    My daughter's totally online with some classes sometimes testing on campus. At least we know the college is legit and can get Sallie Mae loans.

  • I went to Walden University online. It's real. I got my MS in 2 years.

  • If you live near a Strayer University (brick & mortar) they offer online and in-class courses.
    My husband earned 2 degrees from AIU and gave them high praises. He is currently working on his Master's at Strayer.
    I am working on my 2nd degree from CTU and they are tops with me.
    I haven't heard too much about U of Phoenix, but I haven't met anyone who attended there, either.
