Yeah, even if it's a local community college. I'm going through a few classes at Ivy Tech while I'm still in my junior year of high school. The hands-on experience is more than worth it.

Unless you already have a job in IT, don't do online classes for IT. Hands on is what gets you the job. :P

I wouldn't trust any school that is only online.

Most most schools now offer online courses. Depending on the school and the program you may be able to take almost all of the courses online. You should also look into schools that offer off site courses in your area. In the end though you may need to take a few on site courses to graduate.

Give us a little more info on what you want to do and we can help more.

I would have to agree with most people here. If you are not in the IT field then get a hands on degree first. Then take the online courses. I hold a Masters of Science Management with a concentration in Infosec from Colorado Tech. They are regionally accredidated and they have a brick and mortar campus. The degree for me seems to be as recognized as any other. I also got a BS from Capella and it was highly recognized also. But again they hold the stricter regional accredidation. I don't like national accredidation on schools since I find them a little more laxed than the regional.
