    Do you mean you want to enroll in an online Master's degree program at an accredited university in the U.S. or Britain?

    Or do you mean you have an organization that wants to offer an online Master's degree program, and you want to find a university in the U.S. or Britain to validate it?

    Ahmed -

    If you want to earn an accredited online Master's degree in IT, there are excellent schools in both countries. I think, however, that you will find that the least-expensive schools are in the US.

    One school I suggest you look into is Western Governors University at Online University | Online Degree Programs, Accredited Bachelor's and Master's. It is fully accredited (RA) and is popular, with an enrolment of over 10,000 students.

    This school charges by the semester - so the more courses you can complete in each semester, the less your degree costs.

    Another thought. If you want to earn a fully-accredited, widely-repected distance degree at the lowest possible cost -- South Africa might be the place. Try here: Unisa Online

    Cost is far less than US or UK.

    thanks for all ..
    but there is some Universities am contacted before told me that the price of master will be 1400$ and this is the package of accreditation's will be provide:

    Therefore, we'll be able to get the degree documents attested and legalized by the following departments :-

    • U.S. State Department

    • U.S. Foreign Ministry

    • U.S. Secretary of the State

    • U.S. Notary Public

    • Egypt Embassy

    • Ministry of Foreign Affairs Egypt

    • Approval from the Education Ministry United States

    and the time is about 1 month or two without studying any thing !!!

    this university called " McGraw University "

    is this real .. ???or it's fake Universities ?

    thank you again for all

    McGraw University is a Scam. Don't give them any $$.

    No, this so-called school is completely, obviously fake.

    "and the time is about 1 month or two without studying any thing !!!" How could you possibly think that would be real? If you want a Master's degree, study for it and earn it honestly.

    Dear Tireman 44444

    At the Master's degree level, "credit for previous experience" is always fake.

    You can find out which U.S. universities are real by consulting this resource:

    CHEA Database

    If you search for the name and it isn't there, and they say they're in the U.S., they're unrecognized.

    Well, this wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be, so it's time to finally end our misery and ban the obvious shill.

    McGraw University is a twist name of a legit Canadian prestigious academic institution; McGill University in Montreal, Canada. It sounds like you are looking for U.S Student Visa, aren't you? If so, you have to attend school on campus; which distance learning can serve only portion of your program...not entirely.

    MC, I actually don't think he was a shill. Shills usually link to the schools they're promoting, don't usually ask the sort of follow up questions Ahmed Samir did, and never admit that they were talking about a fake school, which he did.

    Yes, it is a "thing."

    Or possibly a twist on well-known TV shrink, Dr. Phil McGraw - or even popular country singer Tim McGraw. I don't think it owes its origin to McGill - any more than the equally bogus McFord University owes its origin to Fordham - or the mill Nixon University to the late Richard M. Nixon.

    I think Ahmed Samir was just being taken in by wishful thinking. Possibly, he'd seen the mill sites that promised 100% credit by experience and hoped one or more offers he'd read might be legal and valid. Even though he's banned, I think we've done him a service and he knows it's 100% wishful thinking on his part.

    In case you're still reading, Ahmed - that Apostille stuff was all fake too. It just certifies that the "degree" is not a forgery and actually came from the fake school named on it! Degrees are like jobs - and cars. You need a real one to get anywhere.

    USDLA again!! I notice McGraw "University" is another of many MILLS that fly the USDLA flag. When, oh, WHEN will this organization, conceived with the best of intentions, STOP selling its seal-of-approval to spurious degree-floggers in every corner of the world?

    If USDLA doesn't - or won't - learn the difference beween the good and the horrible, maybe it's time for their GOOD member-schools to defect en masse...

    I've seen this routine before hundreds of times and we usually ban the OP and move the thread before anyone sees it. Sometimes we let them go for entertainment purposes and they DO in fact come up with comedic replies like the ones in this thread:

    Well, it looks like we're all on the same page. Yes, they very often do admit that the school is fake because there is a market for fake schools and they know that people will bite.

    In the very unlikely chance that I am wrong, the OP is free to contact us and defend himself.

    Okay, fair enough.

    I agree with this but would also offer the following. On a global level that fake piece of paper might actually make a big difference in someone's life. We have had countless examples of how people right here in the USA have gotten promotions, pay raises, teaching positions, etc. all based on fake degrees. So imagine how rampant it might be in other places in the our world. These are places that might not have the sophistication or the resources to check up on all these degrees. Places where people may never have heard the term degree mill.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to say it's OK. It's not OK. But, in some cases, it might be understandable.
