I'm currently enrolled in Central Michigan University as a grad student. I'm taking classes off campus at the joint education center at Camp Pendleton. Central Michigan has some degrees that they offer online and they are considered a legitimate college. There's certainly many more to choose from but maybe knowing about CMU will get your creative juices flowing!

Just a note about University of Phoenix... as far as I can tell, it is a legitimate degree however many employers just do not see it as "the real thing". Also, UP is expensive.

My advice to you is to first decide what degree you want, then start looking for brick and mortar colleges that support online programs. Look for a college with a football team! HA! How's that for a criterion?!

Hey! There are lots of good colleges without football teams.

I agree that a football team does not a good college make, but it forces the person looking for a "real" college to look for "real" things.

Yup. Totally agree.
And we did have a great basketball team for a few years.

Penn foster is one of the most highly accredited colleges to actually obtain a degree with just a ged, the only thing is it costs, but they work with your monthly payments, depending on your income.
