I mentioned the problem to the schools. They said that your degree is a fully accredited degree and there will be no mention on it that it was done via distance learning.
Even if I want to do my masters in person. Due to the fact that I'm based in Taiwan, at least some courses will probably have to be done via the web.
So.. what's the story.
Is a degree a degree under don't ask, don't tell.

Most state schools have distance learning. Soon, I could imagine the universities may just add distance course to the standard curriculum.
I don't have access to the book that lists all the accepted US colleges and universities. The nearest copy to me is located on the third floor of Kaohsiung Normal School's library.
When I last checked out that guide years ago, I was suprised at the wide variety of schools. They even included a local Yeshiva, a Jewish Rabbinical College in Lakewood New Jersey.
I believe they also included a school in New Jersey called Thomas Edison State College (http://www.tesc.edu/ ). This college was created in Honor of Thomas Edison to grant degrees for life experience. There are absolutely no classroom hours. If you have access to the this mysterious holy book, please check and see if it is included. If it is.. how could this be?
By the way.. I'd assume the list of accepted schools should be on line by now. Anyone know where?

Could get tricky very early in the application process.
