The Best Online Degrees Money Can Buy
Someone recently asked, “how much does a college degree cost?” and the answer was unbelievably high. For years, regular people have been trying to find any way they could to make the cost of college cheaper. One way that many have been doing that is to seek out online colleges – and, some of them are very good.
As a matter of fact, one of the best online degrees you can get right now will cost you $50 per class – not per credit hour – per class. For instance, check out MOOCs, or one of the course provider, edX, and you can take as many classes as you want for absolutely NOTHING! But, to get the college credits for those classes, the schools ask you to pay $50 for the class after you pass the test. On top of that, all the schools in the MOOC programs are famous, well known, top-rated schools in the world.
You can study French at the top university in France for free and pay the $50 for each class after you pass your test. You can study engineering at MIT for free and after you pass your test in each class, pay that same amount of money for the credits. What’s more, every single college and university is accredited and internationally recognized. And the best part is even the top multi-national employers accept these college class credits as valid.
The Easy way of doing things
There is another option if you are too impatient to do the work. You can buy a degree online. There are some online colleges that sell you a degree without you lifting a finger or taking the time to take one single class. These are often referred to as “diploma mills”. The question you must ask yourself, though, is whether or not it’s worth it to miss out on the education you could have to make that purchase.
You should know that if you use that kind of degree and then later want to attend a real college when you do have the time, money or energy, there is a fairly good chance that whatever school you apply to will turn you down. Just because you don’t list the college on your college application does not mean that it will not show up when the college does a background search of your credit and education. It does.
Let’s Discuss Fake Degrees
There are tons of pages that show up online whenever you Google “fake degrees” or “fake diplomas”. Some of these offer to let you download a template, fill it in and print your own degree for free. And then there are some of those sites that offer to let you buy a fake degree and all kinds of accompanying documentation to go with it.
They offer you a “transcript record” that will claim you took whatever classes are required to obtain the degree you claim you have. They also state that they have a verification department that you buy to answer the phone and tell anyone doing a background check that you did take the classes and did graduate from the school. Some of those claims are just as false as the degrees they print for you.
Granted, buying one a fake diploma is the cheapest online college degree you’ll ever find anywhere. But, there are places you don’t want to use it … ever! Never use a fake degree on your real college application – whether to enter as an undergraduate or to enter one of the master’s programs.
You also never want to use a fake college degree to get a job with a large to multi-national company. These corporations have third parties doing their background checks and they do a very thorough job. These third parties know every college in the country and international colleges, as well.
When they enter your information into their computers, they’ll get a red flag if any of the fake colleges or universities pop-up. Legitimate colleges are cross-referenced with the courses that are offered there, the names of the professors going back more than 20 years, the names of the department heads and what campus each course if offered at.
Add to all this, these third party investigation computers know every class ever offered online, for how long and who taught it. With the click of their mouse, they can find out if every bit of information you put on your application is legitimate or full of poop.
Fake high school diplomas and fake college degrees are not illegal as long as they are used for novelty purposes such as something to hang on your wall for decoration or to give as a gift to a loved one who swears that you’ll never make anything of yourself. You can use them for bragging rights when you’re feeling inferior, if you want. Otherwise, you should think of the consequences of presenting a fake certificate in order to get a job. But, one thing is sure: a fake degree is the best online degree money can buy.
