Another fake (nonexistent) school: Antonius University

  1. The Big Three is now The Big... FOUR!!!

    Where can I begin to express the gratefulness that I currently feel for the time and efforts of the fine people who post here on I must admit, I have been a lurker for quite some time, however, I have used the information gleaned from your willing spirit to achieve the life-long goal of obtaining a Doctorate!

    I followed my degree path from start-to-end via non-traditional means and would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to a school that I have never seen mentioned on this board. The "Big Three," that is, Charter Oak State College, Thomas Edison State College and Excelsior College, have allowed for great opportunity to people unserved by traditional educational outlets. By allowing minimal-to-no residency requirements and offering credit based on prior learning, they have opened doors where there previously never existed any that could have been fathomed open.

    There is a new player in what previously was a game for three. A college that not only has NO residency requirements (AT ALL!), and not only has the lowest enrollment and graduation fees of all four, but allows you to obtain a degree, at any level, based upon their own pantheon of credit-by-examinations, all of which are at no extra cost after enrollment!

    I obtained my Associates, Bachelor's and Master's from the University of Antonius when they were only nationally accredited. Now that they have officially obtained regional accreditation I submitted my dissertation and was awarded the finest achievement of my life.

    Please consider UofA when plotting out your future degree paths, as it worked out so beautifully for me and I expect it shall for many of you!

    Happy Studies!!!!

    University of Antonius?

    I feel silly for asking, but I'm gonna do it anyway. Is there a web site for this school?

    I can only presume that the OP is attempting to populate Google search results to legitimize a fake degree. There is no school in the CHEA database named "Antonius" Regionally, Nationally, or otherwise accredited.

    Untrue. I just wanted to share my experiences.

    "There is no school in the CHEA database named "Antonius" Regionally, Nationally, or otherwise accredited."

    Untrue. I went to the school, paid my enrollment, studied until my eyes bled and took about 30 of their exams. I should know whether or not such an institution exists. Satisfied?

    *sigh* I guess I shouldn't take this personally... my accomplishments are what they are and I am proud of them. I thought degreeinfo would be the last place on earth you'd get gripe for going to a little known college. Anyway, I know most people here aren't like that and hope my story is useful to others.

    If you earned these degrees I would expect you to use the correct abbreviations.

    University of Antonius, Caesar's Military Academy, Octavian School of Business and Cleopatra College for Girls could have been members of the SPQR university system in an alternate reality. The Nero-Caligula School of Psychology could have been of particular renown at UofA.

    I had assumed his degres wwere in music but I received a PM from Dr. G. with following degree titiles:
    BMuS = Bachelor of Multidisciplinary Studies
    MMuS = Master of Multidisciplinary Studies
    Mu.D = Doctor of Multidisciplines
    I tried responding but my PM response bounced.

    Incidentally it is bad practice to include both your title (Dr) and doctorate on a signature line.
