How many schools out there can you get your bachelor's online?

Posted 14 March 2011 - 01:52 PM

I'm currently going to school full time to get my 2 year degree at a tech school, after I'm looking to continue my education however I am looking to not have all my classes in class(having to attend). I'm currently working full time with a kid on the way and it just wouldn't work after this semester since I'll have the child here.

Do any of your universities out there offer online classes towards a B.S. Computer Science degree? I really don't want to stop furthering my education but it makes it incredibly difficult to continue trying to provide for my family and go to school full time.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Quick google search indicates that the University of Illinois has an online B.S. in CS though they only accept 20 people into the program per year. Ideally, you would avoid schools that are not regionally accredited and would choose from well established and recognized brick and mortar Universities.

Thanks for the reply. Do you know if employers would take non-online degrees over online degrees in terms of jobs out there?

There are probably some employers that look at online degree as being inferior. But there are also employers that would accept it.

P.S. If you're getting a degree from a school that offers both, I think you don't have to specify that it's an online degree. Just name the school, and that's it.
