iFlipI've taken a number of online classes through my universities. They have been fine. Online classes should not be confused with online colleges. The majority of online, for-profit universities are a black eye on university-level education. University of Phoenix or the vast number of other online-only, for-profit colleges are simply degree mills. Pay your buck, get your degree, then collect your unemployment because no one should ever respect a degree from one of those institutions.
Very recently a huge number of for-profit online universities filed bankruptcy and shuttered their virtual doors. One-fifth of all student debt in the US is from these online colleges. Recently students have been successful in suing these closed colleges for their debt, saying their degrees are worthless. Even if they get their money back, they still wasted years of their lives that could have been in pursuit of a real degree from a real university.
As an employer, I would be highly unlikely to hire someone with an online-only degree.
It isnt a for-profit college, its through CSU and is labeled as a Colorado State University degree. I have a lot of real world experience in the field, I currently work as a marketing major. I would just like a diploma to go along with it.
Do you think that would be something that keeps me from getting employed in the future?
