I was awarded credit for English Composition I & II Course through the College Level Examination Program. However, my undergraduate university did not accept CLEP for English Composition II so I had to take it online . I also took my statistics course at the university online. I am not sure if medical school will accept it. I am starting to think that I need to retake it in person. I took the majority of my undergraduate Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration degree Southern New Hampshire University online and my Master of Science in Health Care Administration degree from another university in person. I took summer and flex community college courses. Also, I took summer and flex courses from SNHU that counted towards my BS in Business Admin with a concentration in Health Care Administration. I took the prereqs later in person i.e. Biology, Physics, Chemistry. My mother always warned me about taking courses online. I should have listened but I wanted to earn my degree faster. Now I understand why she was weary of it because I learned the hard way.

Will I even really get a job with my online degree?

To ratify this, I am considering getting a second degree but this time in Biology or Biomedical Sciences.

If you earned the degree from a Regionally Accredited facility, then it's legitimate. This isn't the early 2000s where an online degree is only given out by those scam schools that play commercials at 3am.

But many medical schools still do not accept online prereqs.

So the second term of English and Stats online? Every other prereq live?

Have you now learned to always listen to your mother?

Will I even really get a job with my online degree?
Yes,

No, waste of time. Perhaps taking some advanced courses informally would be helpful

@gonnif Yes, every other class was live. Yes, I have learned the hard way to always listen to my mother. She told me to go out of state for medical school and that is what I will be doing next. Thank you for your informative post.
