Is it quicker to get an online degree than an in person degree?
Not generally. There are a few accelerated programs out there in certain schools and for certain degrees, but you'll find those at traditional colleges as well. In general, it's important to check accelerated programs to make sure they're accredited--many diploma mills try to draw people in by promising a four-year degree in weeks or months. While you may be able to shave a few months or even a year off your college education online at some schools, it's important to investigate these programs carefully--and be wary of promises that are too good to be true.
