    I've heard of college scams and fake degrees before….but not accreditation scams. That's good to know.

    There are jobs out there in which the minimum edu requirement is an associates. Money is one thing, but it's not an entire thing. For example, we all know in NYC a garbage disposal agent starts out in the high 40s and with OT makes over or even close to the 60s but after 3 years in the job you can expect 6-digits whereas a Dr. in Pharmacy or a Counseling Psychologist starts between 40-65 a year.-Don't get me started with the 5 year cap because you can see even with doctorate degrees, its nil!

    Thanks for commenting! It's a very frustrating place to find yourself in especially when you have SO much real-life work experience. There are a lot of life experience degree scams out there but there are some online colleges that let you demonstrate your work experience by testing out of required courses in your chosen degree. Then, you can earn your degree much faster & much cheaper. I sent you a link to the article we have that covers it & lists the schools. Good luck!
