Protection For Students Against Online Diploma Mills

We all have seen them. College degrees that can be awarded in a few months usually via the mail. Are they legit? Often times- not. So what should students who are not lawyers do who are considering a school that is not well known and one that they suspect is a diploma mill? That is the subject of an excellent article by onlineuniversities.com, here. Basically, students can check with the Office of Postsecondary Education and access a database from the U.S. Department of Education, which lists accrediting councils, regional organizations and accrediting agencies.
