The Disadvantages of Buying a Degree Online

Posted by writer on March 24, 2011 at 5:35 am.

Nowadays, it is a known fact that people can buy a degree online. There are several websites that took advantage of this by declaring that students can get a degree without enrolling in courses or taking an exam. However, the question is what good or benefit could this give them.

Buying degrees online are offered by what is known as Diploma Mills. It means that people can get a degree just based on their previous life experience. These life experience degrees are made based on one’s previous job experience or life experience. The great danger of buying a degree online is that people who have them would feel that they are experts without the knowledge necessary to do the job. This can impact society and could cause tragic consequences.

It is of vital importance to keep in mind that there is a huge difference between accredited online programs from world-renowned universities and life experience diploma mills. Nevertheless, it does not mean that if an online school is not accredited means that it is a diploma mill. Some truck driving schools, computer schools and massage therapy schools prefer not to be accredited but still teach students, hold classes and hold them accountable for learning.
