Online IT associates degree?

SdotLowSdotLow Member Posts: 239
Has anyone completed, or can recommend an online school to pursue and associates online degree? I'd like to start pursuing one within the next year. My local CC only offers a small fraction of the courses online and commuting with a full time job to the campus would be very rough logistic wise.

I was looking at UMASS online, but it's hard to find decent reviews.

Edit: My goal is to get into WGU eventually so I can slap an BS on resume.

    If you get your CCNA, you should be able to enroll in WGU.

    I would say get a certification (or two) that will allow you to get into WGU instead of getting an Associates degree that may not transfer very well, and you are stuck at pretty much the beginning anyways.

    I'll be contrarian here.

    If you'd like an Associate's, consider Excelsior College, Thomas Edison State College, or Charter Oak State College. Most of the requirements for these schools can easily be satisfied via transfer or testing out (CLEP, DSST, etc.).

    An associate's in IT would make transfer to WGU (and quite a few other schools) much easier.
    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
