Default easy online college

I honestly need the easiest online accredited college (nationally accredited is fine) that credits may be able to transfer to RA schools.

I need a degree from an accredited college that's not a diploma mill but I need it to be ridiculously easy.

Please don't ask me or judge why I need it to be easy as I have several personal reasons. Yes, I probably will not use this degree in real life. I do need the paper though.

Does anyone know of any?

There really isnt such a thing as an easy degree, you will have to do work, complete assignments, and of course study! Some RA schools that accept NA credits are:

American Military/Public University:
www.amu.apus.edu

Western Governors University:
www.wgu.edu

Ashford University:
www.ashford.edu

University of Phoenix:
www.uop.edu

Kaplan University:
www.kaplanuniversity.edu

There are many others, you should always check with the university you are seeking to transfer credits to.

There is no such thing as a "super easy accredited school".

You may be surprised but some NA schools maybe more chalnging then some RA schools so when you say NA is fine don't expect to see easy NA degrees.
There are no such easy programs.

They all require work and its not easy.

To Perform well in online Degree programs a student must be well-organized, self-motivated, and possess a high degree of time management skills in order to keep up with the pace of the course.

Columbia Southern University or CSU is a super easy NA school. Majority of classes are 8 units, each unit is ten multiple choice questions followed by two 200 word essays. So 80 multiple choice questions and 16 200 word essays are due within eight weeks entirely at your own pace. There can be some variables in classes/units such as four essays and no multiple choice questions.

They are partnered with many schools. Two in particular are Waldorf College and University of North Alabama, both RA schools. Waldorf currently has three online bachelors programs which accept UP TO 90 CSU credits. You also have to attend two weekends for an in-person session. If you go this direction it's important to keep in contact with Waldorf while attending CSU to ensure you enroll in classes it's willing to accept.

With University of North Alabama or UNA, they have an online MBA program which has no thesis. Also if you're 32 years old, no GMAT test for admittance. They even will accept two CSU MBA classes.

American Military College which is RA accepts CSU's credits, if you complete CSU's four year degree you can enroll into their MBA. You can also transfer CSU bachelors credits to AMC as well, although I do not know specifics.

I agree there is no easy online degree. I am a current student at Columbia Southern University, and I feel TheGAguy did not accurately describe the requirements. First, he is correct that classes are 8 weeks, and, generally, you have a test that is composed of multiple choice and essay questions. However, you have to post a discussion board response by Saturday and week and respond to another student by Tuesday. All tests and any papers are due on Tuesday of each week, as well. Additionally, the majority of the classes require at least one paper. In one class, I have a research paper that accounts for 20% of my grade, and for another class I have an article review due in both weeks 4 and 8. The classes require a great deal of work and are by no means easy.

Additionally, Waldorf is owned by Mayes Education Inc. (the parent company of CSU) so you should not have too much trouble in transferring credits. It would not make much sense for them not to accept their own credits.

CSU offers per term and per course enrollment, per course is exactly how I described while per term is how you described. They are same accreditation wise, NA. If you don't think CSU is easy, you should try UoP, lol. I had two research papers within 23 classes. The per course doesn't have discussion boards. The per term option is mainly for the military as their GI Bill requires solid start and end dates.

I feel it's a gift that Waldorf does accept up to 90 CSU credits. I could understand why they wouldn't accept that many as they're NA. I believe UoP only accepts a max of 78 credits and I've heard they're very selective in accepting NA credits. I looked into excelsior and they would only accept something like 30 NA credits.

I know about the different enrollments because I have taken one class that was per course enrollment, but it did require the discussion boards. In fact the discussion boards counted for more in the per course class than in the per term classes I've taken. I suppose its just a difference in the classes we've taken.
