    I did a double take, but yes, it has been that long hasn't it? That's longer than I've even known what DegreeInfo is. Of course, he can always be found on the B forum, but this is a welcome cameo.

    Not as short as you might think, but most of us don't have time to do that much digging.

    The utility of NA undergrad degrees for graduate studies has improved by fits and starts over the years.

    DETC doesn't award degrees, it accredits schools that award degrees.

    DETC graduate May 30, 2014

    Hello. I started this thread. I went on and graduated from Columbia Southern University on May 30, 2014. I am an official DETC graduate with a BSBA degree. I am definitely going for regional accreditation for my master's degree. Oh yeah, I joined the DETC honor society Delta Epsilon Tau. Woo Hoo!!!

    I just refused to take an additional 10 classes at a regionally-accredited school, or take 6 more Dantes/DSST or Excelsior exams for a bachelor's degree at Excelsior College. In other words, I was pooped and ready to be done with anything pertaining to bachelor's degrees. Aside from that, Athabasca University in Canada won't take any national credits or CLEP tests period. I always thought that Canada sucked, with the exception of Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Canadian Bacon. Yum!!!

    Congratulations Ann on your considerable achievement! And welcome my Delta Epsilon Tau sister. But don't give up completely on Canada yet until you've travelled there. It has some of the most beautiful scenery you'll ever experience. Again congrats.

    Cool beans, Ann!... I graduated Magna Cum Laude with 3.83 GPA from Columbia Southern University with a BSBA a few years ago. It was, by and large, an excellent experience for which I have no complaints and absolutely no regrets. Currently working on an MS Information Management/Project Management from Grantham University . Grantham has been a great experience thus far as well; they are both a B&M and DL institution, and DETC accredited at this time; however, I hear that they are also pursuing RA as well. Currently squeaking out a 4.0 GPA, but I probably just jinxed it.

    How is Grantham a B&M institution? "Grantham University offers coursework exclusively through distance-education programs," Grantham says themselves here. A "100% online university," they call themselves here.

    How current is this information?

    They had an application in process with HLC, and were scheduled to host a comprehensive evaluation visit from January 23-25, 2012. "Following the visit, the team will submit a recommendation to the Commission concerning initial accreditation status." The result was no grant of candidacy or accreditation.

    This Indeed.com résumé for former Grantham Provost Vincent Pellegrino seems to indicate that within the 2010's Grantham also pursued the possibility of accreditation with WASC. In this respect it mentions a "San Diego campus." I don't see any evidence that Grantham ever developed a San Diego campus, beyond presumably having the idea that they might set one up in conjunction with an application to WASC.

    I'm finished with DETC degree

    I have already finished the degree and have pretty much decided on American Public University for the master's degree. It is pretty inexpensive, online, plus it has the regional accreditation and the programmatic accreditation that I desire for a business program (ACBSP). I think it will work for me.

    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 , Adjunct Faculty,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. This school is recognized by the U.S. Department of education , CHEA( Council for Higher Education Accreditation) and DETC(Distance Education and Training). They also have programs that have (program accreditation) from PMI(Project Management Institute) as well as AAPM(American Academy of Project Managers ). I am still active duty, (Air Force) and just to ensure I have future success, I have attended career fairs and job interviews and, as I stated earlier, haven't hard a problem, getting offers. It has helped me serve on boards, and help me get hired for an Adjunct Faculty position, so I'm experiencing the payback. :D .. Plus the military also, recognizes national accreditation for commissioning programs.

    ?? On Adjunct Position

    Mrworkman said... "It has helped me serve on boards, and help me get hired for an Adjunct Faculty position, so I'm experiencing the payback."

    Is the Adjunct Faculty position at an NA or RA University?
