10 Ways to Spot Fake Online Universities

A diploma mill, also known as a degree mill, is a phony university that sells college diplomas and transcripts—the actual pieces of paper—rather than the educational experience. Diploma mills are scam colleges that literally crank out fake diplomas to anyone who pays the requested “tuition.”

Diploma mills often promise a fast college degree based on “life experience.”
The Get Educated online education team has prepared these Top 10 Signs of an Online College Degree Mill to help students protect themselves from this popular online scam.

Don’t be fooled by degree mills. Many maintain impressive-looking websites, and all of them advertise heavily online under the attractive terms “fast degree,” “life experience degrees,” “fast online degree” and “work experience degree.”

To protect yourself, look behind the curtain. Flip past the flashy graphics on the website and the promises of an instant degree for the name of the school’s accreditation agency.
Then, take the time to verify that the agency is recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) or the U.S. Department of Education.

If you remain suspicious, consult the Diploma Mill Police for a free accreditation report and to evaluate if your chosen college might possibly be a degree mill.

Top 10 Signs: Diploma Mill vs. Real Online College

  1. Your chosen university is not accredited.

Degree mills love to use official-sounding terms to impress potential students. These terms often sound good, yet mean little in terms of educational quality. Be wary of these terms and phrases: “authenticated,” “verifiable,” “licensed,” “internationally approved,” “notarized,” “recognized by the Pope” and “accredited by UNESCO.”

 

  1. Your chosen university is accredited … but NOT by an agency recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation(CHEA) or the U.S. Department of EducationThe majority of Internet degree mills are “accredited.” The problem is that they are accredited by bogus agencies that they themselves have created.{{LeftSponsor53}}

    These bogus accrediting agencies—also known as accreditation mills—typically have prestigious sounding names. They often claim to be “worldwide” or “international” agencies and therefore superior to any single agency operating in the United States. Check the Diploma Mill Police’s list of suspicious schools for scam reports and details on the real accreditation status of any online college.

    3. Admission criteria consist entirely of possession of a valid Visa or MasterCard. 

    Previous academic record, grade point average and test scores are deemed irrelevant. Telemarketers and spam emails promise “you cannot be turned down” for a degree.

    4. You are offered a college degree based on a “review” of your work experience and faxed resume.

    Most degree mills offer what are known as experience degrees. Credit for career experience is a valid option at many universities that deal with adult learners. But the process of evaluating work experience for college credit is complex. No valid distance learning university in the U.S. will award a graduate degree (master’sor doctorate) based solely on a review of work, life or career experience.

    5. You are promised a diploma—an instant degree—within 30 days of application, regardless of your status upon entry.

    Degree mills are in the business of selling paper—fake diplomas and transcripts. Ergo, they’ll get that piece of paper to you as quickly as possible.

    6. You are promised a degree in exchange for a lump sum—typically $399-$2,000 for an undergraduate degree and up to $3,000 for a graduate degree.

    Universities do not commonly charge flat fees. They typically charge per credit or per course tuition and fees.{{ad100}}

    7. Your prospective university has multiple complaints on file.

    For trustworthy factual accreditation reports, visit Get Educated’s Diploma Mill Police.

    8. Your online “admission counselor” assures you that international online universities can’t be accredited in the United States by CHEA-recognized agencies.

    This is a lie.

    9. The school’s website either lists no faculty or lists faculty who have attended schools accredited by bogus agencies. 

    10. The university offers online degrees almost exclusively to U.S. citizens but is conveniently located in a foreign country, quite often a tiny nation that lacks any system of academic accreditation.

    Alternatively, there has been a rise in the number of scams where the “university” claims to be located in the U.S., yet specializes in “evaluating” and “awarding” degrees based on an “international assessment process” specially designed to help immigrants wishing to enter the U.S.

    Once you have researched an online college for degree mills and evaluated its accreditation report with help from the Get Educated Diploma Mill Police database, you can make an informed decision.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR CLAT AND OTHER LL.B ENTRANCE TESTS

“Focus can bring energy and power to almost anything, whether it’s physical or mental.”

DO HARD WORK SILENTLY SO THAT SUCCESS WILL BEAT THE DRUMS LOUDLY.

POSITIVES OF LEGAL CAREER

The preparation of any competitive examination requires sincerity, perseverance, a clear strategy and of course, slogging hard in a focused way. Any student who has set the goal to achieve high score in CLAT or any other LL.B Entrance test has to do the same. The good news for such aspirants is that the law entrance examination have not become as gripping and hard as CPT, ISEET or NEET etc. The reason is relatively lower outreach of law courses in CLAT era. However, this is not going to be the case for many years to come. The entry to premium law schools in the  country is bound to get difficult and complex. This will be further polarized as we are witnessing the fast paced success amongst law grads of good Law Colleges.

AMIT K. Mahapatra, Managing Director and mentor of IJAS Law Institute says “the preparation of law entrance begins with simple steps and culminates in high scores.” Essentially, the students have to know each subject of entrance test, identify their individual strength in each subject, work on the challenging areas and then go through individual subject test, simulated test and mock test. There was a time when the only options we heard of with regard to law was civil or criminal practice/advocacy. Now things have changed tremendously, and the options after gaining a law degree are immense and are continuously growing in India as more and more multinationals are opening up here. With the growing economy, liberalization and globalization career opportunities for lawyers are growing by leaps and bounds. Legal Education in India is presently moving towards its second generation reforms. These comprehensive institutional reforms are required in the context of increasing interest shown by legal academia, profession, judiciary and the Ministry of Law and Justice, Govt. of India. The population of over a billion, the responsibility of remaining a powerful global economy and the dream of becoming a knowledge based society, necessitates a strong and adept class of trained legal professionals. This means that the policy level changes initiated by second generation legal education reforms urgently need to be coupled with supplementary measures at the grass roots.

Generally, the law entrance test would try to assess the Legal Aptitude, English language, general awareness, analytical skills along with elementary mathematics of the candidate. The objective of the test is to identify better and suitable candidates for law education. Of course, the other objective of the test is to zero on the number of the candidates based on available seats.

The preparation of English language and comprehension begins with brushing basic Grammar and usage, vocabulary building, developing reading skills and apprising with pattern of question as asked in last two to three years of question papers.  The questions can be filling the blanks, synonyms, antonyms or sentence arrangement. One should also develop reading habits, as the student of law has to read a number of books, articles, journals etc. all through his career.

The approach to general awareness section should be with good quality and basic book of General Knowledge. The book should cover the elementary areas of subject like Indian Polity, Indian History, Physical Geography of India, Science etc. as also the glimpses on famous personalities, Committees, Commissions, Treaty, International Organizations, Academy Awards, Games, Nobel Prize, Books & authors etc. The preparation of current affairs should involve going through The Hindu Diary of Events of the last one years or a good magazine will do the needful. Similarly, the legal; aptitude will test the general awareness legal framework like basics of Indian Constitution, Penal Code, Contract, law of torts IPR etc. It is important to notice that the depth of knowledge in the legal subject is not put to the test but it checks the basics of legal reasoning and legal awareness in law aspirants.

The law entrance test would also assess the reasoning and analytical abilities of the candidates, so that they should develop the concept based knowledge in this section. The subject can be classified and categorized in different actions like  syllogism, coding-decoding, matching, relations, sequences, analogies, direction sense etc. The mantra of success in this section is developing conceptualization of the topics and regular practice in each section. There are few questions from mathematical reasoning also. The preparation of this section would be again concept based. There are only few questions from Elementary mathematics. So, if you have even basic command over mathematics and with a bit of practice, you can definitely solve all the questions in this section. The mathematical reasoning is also with the same approach. Law as a course to study has undergone a sea-change over the years with establishment of National Law Schools and the corporatization of the placements in top law schools in the country. In 2008 National Law Schools decided to conduct Common Law Admission Test (CLAT) for admission into various under-graduate and graduate study programmers in leading National Law universities of India. If you are CLAT aspirant, you will need to know what portion of the syllabus you should be Sticking on to now and how much time you ought to allot for it, where the time allotment itself would vary from student to student depending on their understanding skills.

·         TIPS FOR STUDENTS:

·         Be more focused.

Grab more knowledge.

Daily practice must be done.

Take help for weak subjects.

Have faith and confidence in you.

Group study will also prove fruitful with likeminded students.

Never attempt questions which you don’t know as there is negative marking.

First attempt those questions which you are sure.

Time management should also be learned.

Have patience within you.

 

The success in any field is the result of a series of small step completed with sincerity and purpose. The success in competitive exams can be achieved by focused preparation with regular practice. Why are we emphasizing on practice? It is for two reasons. One is time management which has become key success factor in competitions. With practice, you will be able to devise your own individual attempting all questions in stipulated time. The other one is identifying areas to work in different sections or sometimes identifying  the patterns in each section. So buckle your seat belts and start the journey of preparation for law entrance with confidence, with a purpose and firm belief that you can do it !
