Are online non-traditional universities accredited and do I have to
attend classes?

Accreditation is the process in which schools undergo with an outside agency
that verifies the school meets the standard set of criteria. The criterion varies
depending on the agency, if it covers the institution, just specialized courses, and
where the agency is located. This is a voluntary process and some schools do
not seek
accreditation.  Some non-traditional schools are accredited and others
are not. Most reputable schools advise that you check with potential employer(s)
before proceeding with a Life Experience Degree and verify it will be accepted.

Non-traditional distance learning educational institutions are unlike traditional
colleges and universities and have no residency requirements, no buildings or
campus, and no full-time faculty. Instead, they use technology to reach students,
allowing them to pursue their degree wherever they are. They recognize that not
everyone has the time or money required to attend a traditional university.
Through a Life Experience Degree program, students are offered the opportunity
to obtain a degree based on knowledge and experience they already have. This
takes far less time and money and allows for career advancement without having
to take time away from work or family.
