Default Beware of almeda college, almeda university - fake scam.

Almeda is one of the largest selling diploma mill over the internet.
The degree they are offering is not real. they claim to provide you with a life experience degree.

Life experience? LOL!!! How much does that cost? I sincerely hope no one has bought into that, that's sad.

Default Question about Kennedy Western and also Penn Foster College

Kennedy Western - Unaccredited by any CHEA-recognized accreditor as yet - I read they might have applied to DETC for accreditation under new name, something like Atlanta University. (New state law requires schools to get accredited or leave Wyoming.) Lengthy articles on either or both of www.degreeinfo.com and www.degreediscussion.com. Recommended reading!

Penn Foster College - 100% legit, DETC accredited - grants Associate degrees. If a nationally accredited associate degree (in about 13 business or tech fields) suits your purpose, have a look at their site - Google \"Penn Foster.\"

They were formerly known as Thomson Education Direct and originated from ICS -hence their new name - Penn for their Pennsylvania roots and Foster for the founder of ICS. (1890s?)

Kennedy Western seems to have some mixed reviews from what I've seen. Some people rate the quality as being decent while others don't.

No, I haven't heard anything about Westwood... though I did read somewhere else about Almeda.

Childeroland... is your name from the Stephen King book or the poem?
