Steer clear of the online scams rewarding degrees in 5 days!
Online learning becomes more accepted, that's why it is getting
harder to identify, which online educational establishments
require students to finish legitimate coursework, and, which are
diploma mills. The situation gets more perplexing as many
legitimate universities and colleges turn to distance learning;
so many students make up their minds to take classes online and
get their degrees remotely.
A degree is one of the most important and expensive money
investments people will have to make in their lifetime. Without
a degree career doors remain closed for the majority of
potential applicants. Though, the academic choice is not about
to dice, putting the future career promotion at stake.
However, up to the moment more and more people, who are looking
for the better career choices, and are in search of the edge in
the competitive job market fall into the trap of the online
scams, who offer to reward any degree in a very short period of
time, sometimes as less as in five days.
A fake degree is the worst thing ever; just because a person
pays money not for the knowledge he can acquire and apply in his
career, though for the pseudo-credentials to trick the
There are more than 300 unaccredited universities now operating.
More than thirty bogus universities sell online degrees in the
United States alone. While a few are start-ups or online
ventures, the great majority are so called diploma or degree
mills, which are bogus universities and fake schools that confer
any degree at prices from $3.000 to $5.000. Diploma mills crank
out "paper diplomas rather than the educational experience",
which are genuinely worthless because student's work and
operator's handling of the mill fall behind the standard
"In his classic 1959 study of diploma mills for the American
Council on Education, Robert Reid described the typical diploma
mill as having the following characteristics: "no classrooms,"
"faculties are often untrained or nonexistent," and "the
officers are unethical self-seekers whose qualifications are no
better than their offerings.""
Diploma mills are fraudulent institutions of higher education
that issue thousands of diplomas and confer hundreds of degrees
annually, earning the aggregate income of $200 million. Diploma
mills have become more prosperous because modern technology is
becoming increasingly available to general public. The Internet
makes bogus degrees easier to get than ever before. A huge
diploma mills wave is under way, which grows stronger and
stronger with each upcoming year.
John Eaton, a U.S. commissioner of education, once called
diploma mills "a disgrace of the American education."
Diploma mills prey on people's lack of knowledge and confusion
about their accreditation. It is very easy to become a victim of
the online scams, who turn years of backbreaking college
studying into five days' degrees rewarding. Indeed, it is really
hard to determine whether a degree earned online is really
legitimate. Moreover, bogus educational establishments adopt
names that are very similar to bona fide universities.
There are some things to remember when making your academic
One should remember is that accreditation, which is declared
valid by the U.S. Department of Education, is the highest mark
of educational quality. It is very important to verify
accreditation, which is given to an institution of higher
education, by an agency that is recognized by the Council on
Higher Education Accreditation.
Admission criteria that consist entirely of you possessing a
credit card are evidently the tricks of the online scams. It is
a well-known fact that valid universities require applicants to
pass entrance examinations, taking into account their existing
Getting a distance-education degree from a foreign school is a
great imprudence, unless you are absolutely certain that the
school's degrees are genuine and valid in the U.S.
The main thing is to be genned up of the possible danger, to be
forewarned and to double-check legitimacy of any institution of
higher education you're going to admit to. In this regard, not
to look before you leap can be a costly and consequential
