    I have two DETC degrees and a diploma. My AAS and Diploma from CIE got me into TV Broadcasting. That was back when DETC was the National Home Study Council. My LL.M. from Taft Law School was probably a factor in a substantial raise and "promotion" into my current position.

    Thank you, I am happy to be posting here again.

    The message I'd like to send is that, though Academe distrusts online RA degrees and tends to completely disregard DETC degrees, the working world doesn't see things that way at all. More and more, the traditional University is becoming simply irrelevant through being too expensive and red tape bound. It is entirely possible to spend $120,000 for a B.A. in English Literature from a fairly ordinary school. That's just nuts.

    You can rarely be SURE that a degree got you the job or the raise or the promotion but I would never hesitate to recommend a DETC program unless perhaps the degree is not acceptable for a required professional license and there is no work around for that. Engineering , nursing , education , like that.

    I think there is a time and place for everything and as it relates to a DETC or RA accredited institution, each scenario and how one is seeking to utilize the education within his or her field is significantly important in making that decision. As a holder of both a RA and DETC accredited degree I can only stress that in my opinion, a RA institution would typically be what I would recommend to anyone simply inquiring about enrolling into a distance learning program as there are some reasonably priced RA schools out there now and with much competition within the distance learning arena. Certainly more now than back in the early 2000's when I continued my education via distance learning.

    In either case, I recommend doing research within one's field and identify from HR and just as so, what educational background are you finding those above within the organization have within the company or field of work you are pursuing as this I think will at least give you some direction in making that decision.

    All the best

    I certainly cannot speak for another country, much less Nigeria or even institutions or businesses within the US as each has their own criteria as to what they feel is acceptable regarding a degree granting institution.

    If you are concerned with a school or employer accepting a DETC degree then I would suggest you inquire first with them or do some additional research before enrolling.

    New Job

    I have a DETC bachelor's degree and 2 months after graduating I have gotten the best job that I have ever had in my life. Great starting pay (way more money than I have EVER made), and super benefits. I know the bachelor's degree helped a lot.

    People will have their opinions…. I received both undergraduate and graduate degrees from a NA school. University of Management and Technology. I have a Master of Science degree in Management and, have not had a problem receiving calls from employers for HR , project manager, analyst, program management and general management positions. It has been difficult for me to see the merit in the argument of those who speak ill of NA schools. I’ve had plenty of interaction, professional and personal, with people who’ve graduated from RA schools. I’ve been surprised at their lack of post-secondary level acumen. Any education at its core, will manifest itself by what the student puts into it, and how they apply it in the field. Having the degree will get you an interview, but unless one can articulate the concepts of their specialty, and if hired, apply it to the firm to increase bottom line and add value, they will go back to the drawing board RA, or NA degree..
