Has anyone here obtained a degree from an online university? I have often wondered how the employer looks at those kinds of degrees versus ones from tangible, on campus types of experiences.

It depends on where you go. If you go to a state college that offers an online program it looks exactly like an on-campus degree. There are online degrees from colleges that also have a legitimate campus. It's becoming pretty popular now, though still a bit pricey.

I wonder about this myself. Even though the degrees look exactly the same, I wonder if they will ask you if it is an online degree. I wonder if there is a way an employer can find out and if it would make a difference. It would seem to me an on campus degree would be more respected. I could be wrong, though. This is something that needs more investigating before making a decision.

I would be really hesitant about selecting an online university that didn't have a physical campus. In terms of online education in general, it's considered as a more legitimate alternative than in the past. However, I think it depends on the school and the degree.
