Howdy.....well, I am looking around trying to make myself more marketable, and I fell upon this online University:

Americus University

They say they are an accredited school by these guys: IDLAC

Can this be true? Or is someone just p*ssing me off again?

Thanks for any info you can give!!!!

yes, you can get credit for work experience towards a degree at some places but not an entire degree based on it

If you are really great at something. They will give you an honorary degree. :)

The paper that the degree was printed on would have more value than the degree itself.

Gullible enough to ask to see if anyone else knows.....NOT gullible enough to just run out and do it on the spot.

Actually, their site shows the degree with credit hours and work experience. Roughly 50/50....
