It sounds like UCN is the kind of degree that will be passively acceptable--not a time bomb in your resume, but don't push things, either. As we know, in most situations no one is going to go looking at it. If they do, they'll find a recognized university. Thus, no embarrassment. But as soon as you press--licensure, foreign degree evaluation--things get a lot more dicey. That should not be. As John Bear reminded us, be as sure as possible that the degree you seek will meet your present and your future needs. This is an argument for being as mainstream as possible in your nontraditional choices. I'm not judging the Azteca/UCN scheme--"scheme" as in "procedure," not "scam." But you're not really attending the university and the quality controls are not really in place. Having such a degree won't likely trip you up, but you probably don't want to submit it to any real scrutiny, either.
