Reputable College for Military??

My husband has two CCAF's but as most of you know AF Associates Degrees are pretty well worthless.. Almost no schools will take it. He is having a really hard time finding a reputable college that is Military friendly. Seems like most "Military Friendly" schools are for profit only schools that are basically a joke.. My husband almost went to Ashford but realized it would be a mistake. 

Are there ANY reputable school that have online programs and are Military Friendly (and accept TA).. My husband wants a degree that will be valued by employers when he eventually retires. Anyone have experience with this? I would love some suggestions!

FYI hes trying to complete a bachelors degree. They dont have to necessarily accept then CCAF either, he is just looking for a decent online program.

Ummm... My husband uses his TA at Troy University (online) going for buisness management. I believe some of his military classes (like the ones for leadership (?) ) were accepted as credit

Also, i attend Kaplan University online, and I know soldiers do too, i have some in every class. So maybe that does too?

 Look for degree programs at places like UVA, UNC, or PSU-World Campus.  They tend to be very military friendly.  I know someone who teaches for PSU World Campus and he has a lot of military students.  There may be other public universities with good programs, but these are the ones I know of.  Good luck.
