Online Education FAQs


How can I tell if an online college or university is legitimate?

First and foremost, make sure to check the accreditation of any schools you are considering. Accreditation ensures that the school meets U.S. Department of Education criteria and increases the degree’s legitimacy in the eyes of employers. It also is a good sign that you will be getting a quality education. Also check to make sure you can get an actual person on the phone in the school’s admissions office. If you always get a recorded message and generic e-mail replies, consider these red flags that the school may not be legitimate (at worst) or may offer sub-par interaction and student service (at best). It’s also a good idea to check reviews from other students.
