    Does anyone know a place that offers a degree that can be obtained in 16-18 months and is a reasonable price? I've been looking at colleges with a Accelerated College Degree Program and so far they are like $30,000-$60,000 for a bachelors degree at most places I've looked, I'm looking into something more along the lines of $7,500 most for the entire program.

    Maybe it's just better to fake one? I haven't looked into it but I guess there might be some legaly registred ''schools'' that sell diplomas and add you to graduate database or something.

    Forging a degree is a crime. And the OP is not asking to forge one, he's simply looking for places where he can get out faster.

    Really bad suggestion. OP you need to avoid this because you may land in a soup if you're caught faking a degree.

    Seems legit. Degrees offered by Indian Universities would obviously be cheaper as compared to the degrees offered by European Universities. Though there can be rare cases where this would not apply.

    They aren't talking about fake degrees, just degrees from unaccredited universities.

    A fake degree is fake only. No matter how you acquire it. Just my 2 cents.
    But, I do agree that if you're not personally "faking" the degree , then you'd not be legally punishable under any law.

    If you want something cheap and fast, go novelty. Not saying its the right thing to do, but most of the time it gets the job.

    Study for CLEP's, apply those credits towards a school such as Thomas Edison, Penn Foster, or Excelsior. I got my B.S. Degree in Operations Management in a year and a half from Excelsior and it took me about 3 months to earn the credits through cleps, and transferred to University of Iowa where I am currently working on my Masters. Cost me about $5,000. There are some people who get their bachelors in 6 months but have literally no free time due to CLEP's. However, it wasn't really easy. A lot of people fail the test for credits. Probably 90% or more people who study through excelsior for degrees in nursing fail horribly at Clinical tests.

    Most people can't self study and pass CLEP exams. I think this is how college should be, instead of professors and schools holding your hand through the entire process which would make the job market for graduates much better. I went and interviewed for a job against a guy who didn't know what the word "menial" meant in regards to job labor skill - and he

    I tell plenty of people I have an international MBA... no one has ever questioned it. Including those I work with.

    If I told people I was a paramedic school dropout, no one would respect anything I have to say, ever.

    Of course, you can't BS a paramedic certification. At the same time, what good is a degree in marketing, or communications, or business, if you have the know how and the experience?

    My friend faked a degree by photocopying his name onto it. He did get jobs for years before any trouble.

    I think that is like stealing mail.

    You can also go the route of starting a school for a semester, dropping out, and putting on your resume / CV that you are currently obtaining your degree and that you wanted to get started in a career before you finished it. Friend did this, and he makes about $140k a year at FedEx, lol.
