So I had mentioned to my friend, who does not have a degree, that at one point I had come across a program online that offered a free associate's degree. The program did not accept transfer credits and could not transfer credits to other institutions; it all needed to be completed through their online platform to be awarded the degree, at which point you had a degree that would be recognized by other educational institutions. This is at least how I am remembering it, and I could have sworn that the degree was regionally accredited, but this, too, may have become distorted in my mind over time. Does any of this sound familiar to anyone or have I just completely mixed things up? I had seen whatever it is I am referring to less than two years ago, but I can't find it anywhere, which is causing me to doubt how accurately I am remembering this.
