About Us

Online colleges provide a great, convenient route to get a degree, but the amount of scams pervading the Internet sometimes make it hard to trust the online school system. We at onlinecollegedegrees.com want to provide you with the information you need to make an informed and safe decision when choosing a school and we feel that the first step along this road is accreditation.

With information on why your school should be accredited, a detailed description of various accrediting branches, and the ins and outs of how to avoid an online diploma scam, we feel that our site offers you the facts you need to make a smart choice.
