    Hello, this is Byron. I just registered for the first time, but I have been gleaning plans from degreeinfo for several years. I wanted to finally say thank you to everyone here. I am a second career registered nurse in the Birmingham, AL, area. My AAS in Nursing was the first degree I completed despite multiple traditional classroom attempts. Thanks to what I learned here I completed my BSN at Thomas Edison State College (now TESU) through CLEP, classes, and credit banking. I then applied to the graduate program at Troy University here in AL and was accepted on my first try. I will be graduating from Troy's MSN program in May 2018 with a family nurse practitioner specialty. It is thanks to the knowledgable individuals here at degreeinfo that I have been able to achieve these goals. You have helped me achieve my goals even without knowing it. Thank you all, and God bless.

    Stating the obvious....I'm new here. Thank you to the person(s) that started this forum. It appears to be a great resource, but a little overwhelming to me thus far. I'll post a question here as well as I begin my search, but first a little background. I'm 26 years into my current profession, but have not completed my degree. I was given 27 hours of PLA from my current university, and achieved another 33 in an accelerated program. However, that program was cancelled and now they want me to complete the online traditional program, at a significant cost. I needed only 60 hours for my last promotion, but need to complete my BA/BS for my next promotion, or if I decide to start a 2nd career I want to have my full degree. Most of the threads I've read so far are focused on those with no hours. What would be the best course of action for someone in my predicament? I need the degree to be accredited, but the Major does not matter. I'm looking for the fastest way, I'm not as concerned about cost since I have some savings set aside. NOT to say I'm loaded, just that speed is more important. Thoughts?

    Hello everyone I am new here and I have to say this is probably the most informative site I have ever found regarding online learning. A little bit of background about myself: I am currently 21 years old and employed as a correctional officer for the great state of West Virginia. My primary goal is to become a police officer and eventually a West Virginia State Trooper. I have attended three different colleges in West Virginia so far and have not did as well as I wanted. I attended Glenville State College when I was in high school for English 101 and later went on to Concord University where I amassed approximately eighty credits toward a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. However, throughout my attendance at Concord University I decided that it wasn't really for me and I began to attend West Virginia State University for criminal justice. Unfortunately I have also found that I don't think West Virginia State is really for me either due to strict transfer rules. Overall I have completed about ninety credits, however as of now I have found that I really do not have time for college due to my long hours at work. (What's a day off?) However, in the next few months I am very interesting in finding a regionally accredited degree program that is online that will take all of my credits so I can finally get my bachelor's degree. I have high hopes of completing a Master's and doctoral degree online as well in the next few years. Overall I have been a longtime lurker on this site that has been trying to find the best college for me to complete my bachelor's at in the near future.

    Hello everyone!
    I am happy to find this forum. I was just thinking that there should be a forum for distance students... Hey guess what? Google still works!
    Anyway, very happy to be a member and I will likely be asking a lot of questions in the future as well as sharing my experiences. I am currently working on a BS at The University of Alabama in Mechanical Engineering, however considering a change to a different college as I will likely discuss at length in a future topic.
    I was very pleased to see the "washout" thread as it is a good reminder that I am not alone in my journey and many people find that where they start isn't were they finish. Also just read the article posted by "Kizmet" about the MIT students about how to "destigmatize failure"
    So needless to say this has been a great resource already and I am looking forward to being a part of it.

    Hello all!

    I surfed in by chance when googling information on Trident Univ (lots of talk about them here lately)..

    I finished an undergraduate program in education pre the concept of online education taking off (the early 90's) at the University of Memphis.. then decided to become a perpetual part time DL student starting about 10 years ago.. I finished an MBA program by distance with Anglia Ruskin University in 2014, and then finished an MSc in Strategic Management at the University of Derby (also by distance) early last year..

    Im now looking at a variety of DL DBA and PhD programs and trying to figure out what makes best sense for me.. I'm not in any way looking to move into academia after a doctorate is completed.. and I am not looking for career advancement (I've already reached the top position in my firm, and intend on staying where I am at until I retire unless something drastic or unexpected happens).. I simply enjoy the learning process, have enjoyed the research projects I conducted in my MBA and MSc programs, and want to tick off a bucket list item in completing a terminal degree program in business.. So I am looking hard at low cost, flexible programs DL options that are regionally accredited (or have international equivalency) both in the US and abroad...

    In addition to the degree programs above, I have also completed "executive education" programs at Cornell, Rutgers, and the Univ. of Pennsylvania while working on the MBA and MSc and have enjoyed those programs quite a bit as well..

    I've already found a lot of good information here on several different DBA and PhD options I have been considering (thank you!), and look forward to participating in future discussions.

    I want to introduce myself as Dean of McDowell Bible College. We are a new distance learning school providing 16 FREE degrees and certificates for Christians who are looking to train for ministry, biblical studies, leadership and administration, or information systems management. Our standards are as high as most colleges and universities, we are just new and have not met the threshold for serious accreditation yet. However, with the standards we have, we will in the next two years. You will find our courses demanding and rewarding for any new career in the above fields. Please go to our website and take a look, I think you will find our school one that you can be proud of if you become a student there. We exist off of donations and volunteer staff and qualified faculty, so our student rolls are somewhat limited, but there is plenty room for more students at this time.
