    Greetings all,
    I am a veteran Electronics Tech. from the US Navy and I have 15 years in Electronics repair and calibration. I have come to the point in my life that I want an Associates degree in Electronics with the opportunity to apply that degree toward a higher degree. I have looked at Excelsior, Thomas Edison and Charter Oaks. I am not opposed to any of their programs. I do favor Excelsior for their accreditation (ABET). Does anyone have any good advice? I am in Minneapolis so local schools for general studies is not a problem. I need to get this going and receive a degree ASAP. Thanks for your help.

    I favor Excelsior. Sure, the name sounds like a diploma mill but it is regionally accredited, has ABET accreditation, and I have known a number of happy degreed ex-Navy nukes to get their degrees from there(back when it was USNY). They don't have any hair now but they were happy with their degrees.

    1)I am also close to Mpls. You may want to consider St.Paul Technical College - they have an electronics program.651-221-1300.
    2)The U of Phoenix offers a special A.A. program for veterans & active duty people. It is cheap. Take a look. www.phoenix.edu/students/index.html
    3)Ohio U. offers credit by exam for electronics - good for tech or engineer. www.ohiou.edu/independent/ccewords.html
    4)George Brown college offers electronics by distance. www.etcourse.com/et/site/about.html
    All the best,
