    It's been discussed at length on Degree Info for many years, since before they were even accredited. They're currently attempting to become regionally accredited.

    Still, I don't remember anyone here going for a degree with them this whole time. Maybe if they achieve RA, that could change.

    I did an evaluation for them a few years ago and in the specific program mentioned above. The short of my findings:

    Materials/Educational quality: Very Good

    Interface: Fair

    Instructors: Very Good

    Student base: Low-to-mid level with a few stars sprinkled here and there, comparable to other open enrollment programs of its type

    Communication from Student Services and Administration: Unacceptably POOR

    Also, if you're not a fan of peer grading systems, this school will drive you crazy. I hope they took my recommendation into account and started giving orientations to students on grading papers because what I witnessed was just not good.
