How to Find Accredited Online Bachelors Degree Programs or Courses

Perhaps you have been contemplating taking an accredited online course but don't know where to find one or maybe you are already a student and just searching for a more convenient way to take a required course or work around a scheduling conflict. Here is the information you need to find the class or program you want:

  1. If you are already a student searching for an online course then the best place to begin is at your own campus. Many colleges and universities have a distance education program with fully accredited courses taught by the same instructors you have every day.
  2. Depending upon your college or university, the online university degree program courses may be tucked among the continuing education department or other non-traditional formats so it may take some research to locate.
  3. If your college doesn't offer the course you need then consider taking a class from another accredited online degree program but be sure your college accomodates transferring credits for an online course.
  4. Pay special attention to the course prefix and numbers: often what may initially sound like the same course may not meet the criteria of your school. When in doubt, put it in writing and submit to your department for advance verification an approval.
  5. If you are a new student or seeking a fully accredited university degree then try searching one of the available databases to find degree programs that fit your needs. Some of the more popular and comprehensive sources include the Directory of Schools and Peterson's Guide.
