He thinks the ACLU is a college?

Maybe he's just dyslexic.
A college that only produces Knee surgeons.

Someone should tell him it is the "American Christian Law University" .. and watch his brain (if any) short out ;)

Speaking of colleges...

Now that I'm getting settled here in Dayton, my mind it starting to turn towards finally finishing school. When I left DFW, I was 3 classes shy of my Associates: Math, Science, and the "Don't be an Asshole" Awareness* class. It all came down to time and money, because all three were campus classes. The Math class I may have been able to pull off online, but I just really need instruction with math. My brain has a hard time processing math past simple arithmetic. I guess I see it wrong, or something.

Anyway, I started looking at local 2 and 4 year colleges, which lead me to looking at some other online colleges. Some I know are pretty much a scam and stay clear of those. But has anyone heard anything about Arizona State's online division? It looks like it's actually ASU, just online. Tuition is about $13k a year. I know ASU generally has a good reputation as a school, but was wondering if anyone has heard anything about their online offerings. They definitely have a larger number of online degree programs, that is for certain.

*I call it that, but it is a class on how not to be a bully, troll, don't harass, belittle others... so don't be an asshole.


I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.

ASU has some of the few respected full-online programs. Just make sure you don't confuse ASU in Phoenix with that other online school that has "Phoenix" in its name.... :-)

Western Governors University also has some respected online programs, if you want to look at another option...

Thanks Dr. Blue!

I looked at WGU. Tuition is pretty sane, comparatively thinking, but their programs are limited and do not include the writing/communications degree I need.

ASU is about the only school I've found that offers a BS in Technical Communications (i.e., Tech Writing) completely online. Definitely will pass on WGU to a couple of friends looking to go further though.

Avoid Taft University. (We know who is the most famous graduate from its Law Skool.)
