  • BBB Warns Your Online Diploma Could Be a Worthless Piece of Paper
    It's time to head back to school for many students, and Better Business Bureau is warning consumers against online programs that offer fast and easy high school diplomas or college degrees. As millions struggle to find a job, earning a diploma or an advanced degree is one way to stand out from the crowd, but some students found out the hard way that the diploma they thought they earned online wasn't worth the paper it was printed on.
  • Diploma Mills: Degrees of Deception
    Are you ever tempted by an e-mail or an ad claiming you can "earn a college degree based … on life experience"? Don't be. Chances are good that the ad is for a "diploma mill," a company that offers "degrees" or certificates for a flat fee, requires little course work, if any, and awards degrees based solely on life experience. Most employers and educational institutions consider it lying if you claim academic credentials that you didn't earn through actual course work. Federal officials say it's risky behavior: If you use a so-called "degree" from a diploma mill to apply for a job or promotion, you risk not getting hired, getting fired, and in some cases, prosecution.
