I have no idea. My friend is doing that online though. Why do they laugh? Do they not consider it a real school?

I had a bad experience with UoP's financial aid department, they really tried to screw me over,  I transferred and it's been a few years and they STILL call every few months to try to get me to go back.

or what about any online college?! Would a job hire some one if they have a "online college degree"?

If it's only online, that's bad. If it's the online course through a real brick-and-mortar college, then it's good. I got my MS online from a real college across the country. My employers have accepted it as valid.

Yes and to further that topic- any TV commercial college degree is equally useless. Ashford university, university of phoenix- any college that advertises during the maury show will give you a degree that's not worth the paper its printed on and that is across the board.

Yes, it's akin to putting CollegeAmerica down.

Grand Canyon University is a real Christian university, not a degree mill.

Or "Grand Canyon U online"??? LMAO *How are people still attending these degree mills? These places have NEGATIVE reviews for a reason.
