Those anyone know anything about getting an A.A. online?

How much does it cost? Accredited schools?

Are they looked at as not as good as going to a college?

Any info would be great

There are some decent online schools. Although mostly for post graduate studies, I dont know about getting your Associates or Bachelors like that. What schools have you been looking at?

I spoke to my sister who did her A.A. online through the University Of Phoenix. She said it ended up costing about $11,000.

I had no idea it was that much. She is also doing her B.A. online through the same school.

all in all I think 11k isnt all that bad, considering i paid 30k per year to go to school. But I guess you really need to look at your personal goals, is getting your AA going to have a direct effect on the money you make? Or will you have to spend more and get your BA before that happens.

i agree with hrdgain on that one. unless you getting an associate will directly lead ot you making more money its not poin tin doing it unless you are going for a bachelors. in some instances if you dont have a bachelors you might as well just have a high school degree. im not exactly saying an associates wont get you anywhere. but i would say if you do that you might as well get your bachelors

I know it sounds nuts but I want to do it for me. The field I'm in a degree will do nothing for me.

The field I'm working on getting into a degree would benefit me. That isn't the reason behind it though. I just feel like it's something I should have done a long time ago.

As long as the school is legit I say get it done. University of Pheonix I've heard of, but I am not 100% sure what they are all about. Is there a site that rates on line colleges?
