Usually the bottom rung of education and ranges from As Seen on TV correspondence classes to modern day degree mills like Walden University or the University of Phoenix. They are all happy to take your money with the full understanding that you will never actually get a worthwhile degree , diploma or certificate for your money.
I signed up for the Walden University distance learning PhD in Public Policy only to find out that no reputable government organization takes it seriously. What a waste of $4,500.
