    Hello teachers,
    I am not one of you (yet), but looking forward to join. I'm making a career change and would like some advice. Which online school is best to go get my teaching credential ? I've spoken to National, Brandman and Governors. If anyone here got their credential from one of these schools or others please advise. I'm in California and only online program will fit my schedule

    Thanks much in advance.

    Honestly? I'd see if any state school has an online program before trying anyone else. It looks like California State University has several degrees available. I say this as someone who earned an M.Ed. through a state college but completely online.

    Many CSUs have part-time evening programs.

    I got my California single subject credential through Western Governors. It is a non-profit school, so very cost-effective unlike a number of other on-line schools. The main reason I chose it over a CSU is that I was able to start the program the same month I was laid off.

    I got my Masters and single subject teaching credential at National University. It took only 18 months which also included the 5 months student teaching. Expensive but fast. They had evening programs twice a week, 5-9 pm, but after the first 2 months I switched to online because it was so much better schedule wise, and I had the chance to collaborate with 50 people in the online class vs. 10-15 in the actual class. It was great,

    Ball State University (Muncie, IN) offers 100% online degrees.
    That's where I got my Master's in elementary ed.
    You do your student teaching wherever you live
    I did go to the school to walk at graduation though :)

    I'm still musing over online programs, though I happen to live a hop, skip and a jump from a university with a respected teachers' college.
