Distance Learning Alliance
Our search located four institutions in the state of
Nevada: Great Basin College, Sierra Nevada
College, University of Nevada-Las Vegas, and
University of Nevada-Reno. Unfortunately we were
unable to locate clearly marked online degree
programs that are provided completely in a distance
education format online.

However, the
University of Nevada-Reno offers
Independent Study courses.  As an equivalent method
of adult learning, it may be a good substitute to online
degree education. It is certainly something to

SEARCH TIP: Make certain that you have triple
checked the online program’s accreditation. First,
they tell you what it is, then you go to that accrediting
bodies website (not through the link provided by the
school), and thirdly you would visit the department of
education to see what they have to say. Do your
diligent research into the institutions once you have
narrowed down to a couple. You can look at the Better
Business Bureau for more information on the college.
