    I'm going into a credential program and thinking about whether to accept admission to Alliant University's credential + MAE program. The program is only 7 units on top of a credential to earn my master's, which sounds amazing and for only a few thousand dollars over the price of credential. However everything I see about Alliant has them ranked pretty terribly against other national online universities and brick and mortar schools in general. I need to do an online program for my current work and personal life. I'm wondering if the school you get your credential/masters from really matters when it comes to getting hired or if it's more how you market yourself and your experiences. Will I not get a job because someone else got their credential from somewhere like Cal Poly or Stanford? Is Alliant really not a good school?

    Thank you,
    Claire

    It is regionally accredited which is the first thing to look for with any school. Whether or not it is a good school, I guess ymmv.

    That's kind of what I think, it's the credential issued by the ctc and the fact that I have a masters that should matter.

    Keep in mind, a masters with no teaching experience is not always looked upon favorably by administrators. If you aren't currently teaching, you could price yourself out of a job.
