Online Security Degrees

Does anyone have experience with any online security degrees? In the past I have focused more on certifications and never got a degree. Now I'm considering going to school and getting a bachelors, but will probably have to go for an online course.
I thought Boston University's course looked interesting, although I honestly haven't looked too far into it.
Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated.

Edit: Major oversight on my part...didn't realize BU's program was just for a Masters, not Bachelors. Whoops.

Re: Online Security Degrees

WGU seems to be one of the more credible / popular online programs amongst IT types. I don't know much about them or their reputation personally, but you might want to check it out: http://www.wgu.edu/degrees_and_programs

Awesome - thanks for the info. I'll look into that one. I saw it on my initial Google search, but hadn't looked into it much yet.

Re: Online Security Degrees

I've got a buddy who went through WGU.  He took away a lot from his studies, and it really made a difference for him.  Ten years later, he's the CEO of an IT firm, doing very well for himself.

Re: Online Security Degrees

Good to know. I just spent a while looking at reviews online for WGU, as well as many threads on here about it. It definitely seems like a viable option and I may be able to use some of my existing certs and experience toward credits.
I think I'm going to contact them for more information.
