I've recently relocated to N.C. and would like further my education in Criminal Justice or Social Work. I have an associate's degree and I work two jobs. I've been looking into pursuing a degree online (ie. Phoenix, AIU, DeVry) but it is very expensive and not necessarily attractive to employers. Does anyone know of specific "brick and mortar" colleges/universities in North Carolina that offer an accelerated degree program, online classes and reasonable tuition? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I know ECU has a lot of online classes and is one of the cheaper universities. Of course, until you have lived in NC for a year out of state tuition is pricey.

Try NC Wesleyan College, they offer classes in Morrisville and they have an accelerated degree program in Criminal Justice.

University of Phoenix has a ground campus in Raleigh so there are more options then just taking classes online. They offer a ton of programs and they have a learning center at Brier Creek too which is great if you live closer to the RTP area.

I would strongly recommend AVOIDING private for-profit colleges -- U of Phoenix, DeVry, Strayer all come to mind. Check out their five-year graduation rate to find out why.

ECU is probably the best brick and mortar + online option around.
