One of the unfortunate byproducts of a job search is that job searchers are constantly bombarded with information about online schools. This would be no big deal if it were not for the fact that I need to get a state license to do what I intend to go the school for.
In the flesh education is less convenient and harder, but that would be why it’s more legitimate. When faced with this forty five thousand dollar question the answer is assess, assess, assess. (That fourth “s” is very important)
So I sent this email to the state board. Will they reply? Five bucks says no.

Dear BBS Webmaster,
I’m currently looking for a grad school to qualify me for a license in mental health counseling.
I’m told you do not recognize a master’s degree from an online school like Grand Canyon University or Capella. Is that true?
Do I need to get an MS or will an MA do?
Thank you for your time,
Richard Leland Neal
