Following is a partial listing of virtual education/distance learning sites at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Usually tuition and extra expenses are involved. Many of the programs here are highly respected and accredited (it's essential that you always check!) Black Excel's pick here (because we've worked with several students that have gotten either undergraduate or graduate degrees through its program, is Empire State College which is part of the State University of New York. It's highly respected, and does its job! Many of the other programs listed here, have equally fine reputations.
