Online Degrees explained by Andrew Jackson University

By | November 6, 2015


You’ve heard a lot about it, but what is so great about online degrees? Online education allows you the freedom to learn anywhere, at any time. There is no driving to and from campus, and class times fit into your schedule. A motivated person, armed with a laptop or mobile device can attend class in any location they please. That is where Andrew Jackson University gets its mantra: TAKE EDUCATION ANYWHERE. But what about degree mills? Degree mills are unaccredited, unlicensed schools who issue diplomas without the authorization of a state or recognized accrediting body. Each state licenses universities to issue degrees. AJU is authorized by the state of Alabama to issue degrees. What gives those degrees validity is accreditation. Accreditation is the process by which a recognized organization approves all aspects of a school, therefore establishing their credibility. AJU is accredited by the Distance Education Training Council, which has been recognized by the US. Department of Education for over 70 years, giving your diploma the validity you need when entering the work force. Confused? Don’t be! Andrew Jackson University is glad to answer any questions you may have about online education or accreditation. Contact us at 800-429-9300, visit us at aju.edu, or email us.

    I’ve had bosses who completed their advanced degrees at online schools and let me tell you they were the most professional lot I’ve worked with. It takes a special kind of character to successfully balance the demands of family, career and education. Sure the reputations of online schools vary but the same principle applies to brick and mortar schools so let’s not generalize and tar all distance learning programs. Having taken classes in both settings, I say it’s what you make of it.

    Online education lacks compared going to a brick and mortal school.
    I’ve done both. Although legit online/distance learning is recognized I don’t think it should be.
    It’s difficult or impossible to actually interact with the Professor on a solvent level which leads to an overall substandard educational experience.
    I’m sure I don’t need to mention that one taking an online test at home has more access to resources (unsupervised internet, CD, DVD). than most in a classroom environment.
