Hello! I've been researching this forum for the past couple of days, soaking in the available information in like a sponge. I understand fully the difference between nationally and regionally accredited schools, but I would always enjoy some additional feedback from the community. A little background: I'm 21 years old, and have attended a local community college for a couple of semesters within two majors--Computer Information Systems, and Criminal Justice. Both of my parents have stricken ill a few years back, making it difficult to maintain this path, and has such I have basically flunked out/stopped attending. Bills are catching up, so I had to pursue a full time job, and have about $8,500 in student loans to repay. I have approximately 12 credits within the Computer Information Systems major, and only 6 within Criminal Justice, and flunking everything else hence the large debt(lol). This made me realize a B&M institution isn't really for me, as time constraints and other issues seem to not be working in my favor. I have searched on here and have found Ashworth College which is DETC accredited. It looks to be a fairly good online college, does anyone else have feedback from this place? I am interested in a BA(Bad Ass, I mean Bachelor/Arts) Criminal Justice degree so I am able to obtain a law enforcement position such as Probation/Parole/Police,etc. Ashworth also seems very cheap--at only $80 per credit. It is hard not to click on it right this instance. Does anyone have a path they would choose? Now I understand that employers seem to discriminate against DETC accredited in terms of favoring regionally accredited. I have also found Ashford University, which is regionally accredited, and I have contacted them and they stated they do accept credits and Ashworth is on their "acceptable credit transfers list". Can anyone offer some insight? I plan on enrolling within the next week. Thanks!
