How do I know a online college is legit?

I want to get a degree online but I don't know what questions to ask. I'm scared that I am going to be scammed by a fake college or I hear people who have working to get there degrees and they suddenly don't have the credits or the tests they need for their degrees.

    Stick to state schools with on-line components.  No private schools.

    Go through an accredited university that has a campus.

    I'd suggest picking one that is both, a real location building college and online. My oldest daughter is getting her masters online from a college that also is a building where people attend classes.

    Here's a quick and dirty method.  It's simple too.  Get an online degree/diploma at a college or university that has a brick-and-mortar campus and has existed for at least 100 years. 

    The more complicated answer is that the school needs to be regionally accredited.
