I am looking for any advice ANYONE can give me. I received an Associates Degree from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1996. I have recently decided to continue my education and seek a Bachelors degree. I have never had so many doors slammed in my face! I being the first to go to any further schooling in my family, thought I was doing something wonderful by just ATTENDING college, I knew nothing about accreditation at the time. Since speaking with 10/15 schools and being told that my degree from AIP is not recognized, and my credits are not transferable, I have been trying to do more and more research on the subject. I now know (although too late and 24, 000 in debt) that this degree is in my opinion worthless. It seems at this point I have two options; I either get a BS degree (and I would like to call this bull sh**) but mean Bachelor of Science from another nationally accredited school...i.e u of phoenix, florida metro u, baker college, etc, and pay a TON of money, or I attend a regionally accredited worthy school and have to start as a freshman, like I never even attended college at all. I am looking for any advice anyone may have at ways around this or if anyone knows of ANY regionally accredited school that is known to take credits from AIP, or a nationally accredited school. Or, just what to do at this point. Thank you .
