    PhD Study

    Hi everybody
    Please Help me to find school that provide cheapest Phd degree fully online in computer science or any related field with good accreditation.
    Walden and Kaplan are good but very expensive.

    Hmm....let's see. The OP offers two (rejected) choices, then asks about an unaccredited school that makes its lack of recognized accreditation a very murky topic buried in misleading rhetoric. What could it mean? Especially since Kaplan doesn't even offer the degree the poster claims to seek. Whoops! Neither does Walden. (It offers a couple of doctorates in IT, but that's not the same as computer science , and it doesn't offer the PhD in those. I guess that's close enough, huh?)

    So, two (rejected) choices that don't offer the degree in question, plus an unaccredited school that...wait for it...doesn't offer such a degree, either! It offers a DSc in Computer Science , but then again, it offers degrees in just about any area once you get past the bold print.

    Then there's this: "Note: Students who have been granted Advanced Placement Candidate status (APC) may be allowed modification of the above protocol." I'm guessing that's just about everyone.

    They have a mail-forwarding service in Hawaii, which is somewhere in the Atlantic, I guess.

    Yeah, go there.

    thank you for reply but I don't know if they lying or what in their official website!!!
    --- from AIU site -
    Atlantic International University is accredited by the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC).

    ASIC Accreditation is an internationally renowned quality standard for colleges and universities. Visit ASIC’s Directory of Accredited Colleges and Universities. ASIC is a member of CHEA International Quality Group (CIQG) in the USA, an approved accreditation body by the Ministerial Department of the Home Office in the UK, and is listed in the International Directory of the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

    AIU meets all state and federal laws as a degree-granting institution in the United States and the State of Hawaii. The University was legally established by corporate charter in 1998 and is in good standing.

    I know that a lot of you don't like (ASIC) accreditation but I think we have to think about it little bit!

    No, we don't. ASIC "accreditation" bestows no recognition on a school regarding its degree-granting authority, nor its acceptance and recognition as such. To imply otherwise--as you are doing--is misleading.

    In short, the school could be accredited by ASIC and be considered an unaccredited school simultaneously. You have to ask--and answer--"Accredited by WHOM?"

    Being simultaneously accredited and unaccredited is a paradox only if you don't understand the concept...or you're hoping others do not.
