What College Would I Get My Degree From?
Most colleges and universities in the United States, 3900, accept credit earned? for these exams. However, many schools limit a proportional amount of the total credit required for a degree. Most schools will accept between 30-90 credits earned this way. Most community colleges will accept 45 of the required 60 for an associates degree.
Our program can help you with your degree plan, regardless of where you currently attend, or plan on attending college. High School students can use this program to complete their freshman?and?sophomore?year of their intended college while they are still attending High School. For Example: John Doe high school student gets accepted to Wayne State University, his dad’s Alma mater.As his parents stress over paying the bill John goes to the Wayne State’s website and sees they accept up to 60 credits by exam. He enrolls in CDE and our partner at Straighterline’s degree planing gets him started on the General Education requirements for his desired degree for Wayne State University. In his spare time ?and in a few months with the help of CDE Johnny gets all 60 credits completing his freshman and sophomore year enabling him to start college as a Junior for a cost of around $2500 all inclusive!?
?If you have not chosen a school yet?consider this: There are three HIGHLY rated colleges that will accept 100% of the credits required for a degree from these exams, we do not receive any compensation from these schools what so ever. They are:

In addition to credit from proficiency exams , these schools will accept credit from other sources such as; other regionally accredited colleges, workplace and military courses that are approved by ACE (the American Council on Education), life experience through assessment or portfolio and credit from professional licenses.

These schools are known as assessment institutions, since they can be used to collect credit from disparate origins. When enough credit of the correct type and proportion has been earned, these institutions will award the student an accredited bachelor degree.These school are all fully accredited. If you are wonder where a person with a degree from one of these schools might go, look at the list of Graduate School Acceptances from Charter Oak State College.

Which college is the right fit for you and your degree plans? There are a lot of factors to con
Will I get a Real Degree?
Of course you will!
A?real degree?is one that is issued from a?regionally accredited college.College Degree Express is not a degree mill, nor do we work with unaccredited colleges or universities. The schools we help you obtain a degree from are all regionally accredited and most are state owned and operated. Anyone can buy a degree online or even print one from a home printer but it wont be worth the paper it is printed on.
Whether your degree comes from an accredited school or not is crucial and can affect your future. Hiring companies will check your degree during the hiring process and will not offer you a position if your school isnt accredited.Graduate schools of course will know if your school is real or not and if it?isn’t?dont even apply.You need to be?careful,?these fake colleges are setting up fake accreditation agencies and actually requiring students to do a little work to make them feel like they earned their degree.
The easiest way to verify accreditation is to go to the US Department of Education Database website
and check that your desired college is listed.
How to Verify if a School is Accredited
Even if a school seems to be affordable and legitimate, follow these guidelines to verify that a school is accredited. ?
1. Check with recognized authorities like the Council for Higher Education (CHEA).?www.chea.org
You can also go to?www.abika.com. This website validates public education records.
The U.S. Department of Education also maintains a database of schools that have been accredited.http://ope.ed.gov/accreditation/search.aspx
2. You can also check with the schools Admissions Office. Accredited schools will have proof of their accreditation.
Write down the accrediting institutions and follow up to make sure the accreditation is legitimate. Many schools are accredited by more than one organization if they are online or have many campuses.?You may also want to check how long the school has been accredited and if there have been any complaints about its academic programs to any of the accrediting institutions.
Many individual accrediting institutions are divided by geographical area?Midwest, New England, North Central and Southern.
3. Check for other accreditations. For example, schools that offer online classes may be accredited by the Distance Education Training Council. Be sure any accrediting organizations are recognized by CHEA and the U.S. Department of Education. The regional accreditation organizations are the main accreditation agencies.
Schools pursue accreditation to show they provide a quality education to their students. Accredited schools have proven their dedication to being a legitimate academic institution.
If a school (whether brick and mortar or online) is not accredited, do not enroll in any classes. Schools that do not pursue accreditation often turn out to be degree mills that are largely motivated by profit. Degree mills award degrees without any academic merit or accreditation.
