Hi, I'm considering getting a masters degree from the American College of Education. I see this degree is regionally accredited, which is important to me, because I might want to continue my education and get a Doctorate in Education down the road. Are there any disadvantages of this school compared to other online schools that have a brick and mortar address like Lamar University or Morningside College or Fort hays State University? I don't care that it's a for-profit school, as it's cheaper than the other schools, just trying to see if the reputation/accreditation could hurt me in any way down the road. Thanks.

First off, regional accreditation is considered the gold standard so you won't run into any issues there.
Your second concern, the lack of a brick and mortar campus could affect a potential employer's opinion of your education.
There are three primary factors that employers consider when evaluating the quality and prestige of an online degree:
- Is the school regionally accredited? Is the business school AACSB accredited?
- Is the college more than 300 miles from where you live? Is it a well-known brand?
- Does the school have a residential campus?
If the answer to some or all of these questions is 'No' you may encounter some hesitation from potential employers.
You may want to dig a little deeper into American College of Education's reputation with employers to make sure you won't have trouble getting a job after graduation.
A great way to see where you'll be in the future is to ask alumni how their job search went and a quick search on LinkedIn can provide you with lots of contacts.
You can also ask the school itself what types of careers and businesses alumni are working in.

Good luck with your decision!
