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!
