    I have been looking into Breyer State but am suspicious of it. No one seems to have heard of it! Can any one help!? Do their degrees mean anything?

    They are an out and out degree mill. Avoid them at ALL cost. To find more info on them go to google and enter Breyer State University AND degree mill. You will get a ton of information on their scams and deceptions.

    I have personally dug up plenty on this pigbathing mudhole just use the search feature on this forum to read more. You'll quickly conclude that BSU is truly a BS University.

    As a side note, check posts from "galanga". He's found plenty of non-flattering things about BSU as well.

    What about Breyer makes you suspicious? That would help understand the nature of your question.

    SRice said: Do their degrees mean anything?

    It depends. They have no meaning academically. But my research has shown that even totally fake schools (not that I'm saying Breyer is fake in any way) invoking a traditional-sounding name (like one with "state" in it) show a remarkable acceptance with employers--until they find out about the school.

    Now, about those suspicions of yours....

    Stacey,

    Breyer State is "based" in the United States. They DO NOT have any type of U.S. Department of Education recognized accreditation. They are not licensed in the state in which they operate. They avoid getting into trouble because they operate on an American Indian Reservation which protects them from otherwise applicapable laws. They falsely use the term "state" in their name.

    Below are two links to threads I started about Breyer State awhile back:

    http://forums.degreeinfo.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=17248&highlight=breyer+state

    http://forums.degreeinfo.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=16275&highlight=breyer+state

    That should be all you need to conclude that you should stay far, far away from Breyer State. However, I'll gladly give you more links until you change your mind.

    You may want to try:

    The Open College of Equine Studies

    Good luck.

    Well you have confirmed what I suspected! Thank you so much. I am glad I found this web site, there seems to be a lot of knowledgable people on here. I read up on Degree mills and can see how Breyer State would fall into that catagory. I really appreciate your help.. Also thank you for that website on the equine studies. It is hard to find a distant learning college that offers equine studies. Due to work I am not able to leave to go to college! Are you familar with any other colleges that offer equine studies? Thank you again.

    There are thousands of degree-granting institutions in the U.S., so some people not being familiar with it doesn't tell you much. But the real indicators will.

    Stacy, I too was considering Breyer State until I stumbled upon this site. The guy over there that I was corresponding wtih assured me that their "accredidation" was just as good as a "regional accredidation". They do talk a great game. He led me to believe that there were no online or correspondence universities that were offering the courses that I was looking for that had the accredidation I needed. This was an out right lie. The kind folks here on this site pointed me in the right direction and I am now on my way. The price was certainly better at Breyer...but considering the fact that they only thing I would be able to do with my degree from there is use the paper to line the bird cage, I think I'd rather spend more money and get what I pay for.

    By the way, did you check out the syllibus for the courses at Breyer? I was looking for a college Algebra course. Each week there were like 5 problems to do for your "classwork". :D Amazing!
