The last thing you need is to spend time pursuing an online degree or certificate, only to find that no one recognizes it.
Before you pursue a degree program, check for accreditation on the Council for Higher Education Accreditation web site (www.chea.org).
Beyond that, writes Eve Tahmincioglu on CareerDiva.net:
• Determine what a degree from a particular institution will do for your career aspirations. What’s the “perceived value” of that degree?
Tip: Call alumni from the school to find out. If the institution isn’t willing to share this information with you, cross it off your list.
• Find out what degrees are held by the people in coveted jobs. That’s easy to do these days, thanks to web sites like LinkedIn.
