I would humbly suggest you get a degree from an online program associated with a brick and mortar institution

My daughter was awarded her MA in Management form Univ. of Maryland On-line. Her diploma does not mention on-line or on-campus. My son his MS Communications from Purdue, also no distinction on his diploma. Both highly rated institutions. Always do it the best way possible.

I would start with identifying an academic discipline, and then go from there to find the right school for you. What type of degree/discipline interests you?

Either an MBA or Masters in IT/Cybersecurity. I hear there are several universities that offer credit for completion of CCC. My main goal is to have a degree prior to the Major Board, 3 years from now.

CPT (Join to see) - If you're looking for an MBA, I'd start with the list of schools ranked by the US News & World Report for online MBA programs. They are all known universities with really good reputations.

https://www.usnews.com/education/online-education/mba/rankings

US News & World Report doesn't have any rankings for Cybersecurity degree programs. I did find this resource though.

One that is regionally accredited. Don't fall into the, oh we're nationally accredited, trap. Not worth the paper it's written on.

Any are fine, but if you look at the D1 colleges that are big football and basketball schools, they typically have robust online programs.

I was looking at Troy and Arkansas State for an MPA. MBA's can be found everywhere if that's the route you're looking to go.

FYI - I have a brother with an MPA from SDSU. He wishes he had an MBA rather than MPA because MPA is rather limiting, whereas MBA can take you anywhere, mil., govt., or private sector. Best wishes.
