US News and World Report University Directory publishes a small piece covering online psychology degree opportunities from Almeda University.  Degrees earned (read: purchased) from Almeda are not recognized in many states, Oregon and Texas included.  More information.

If doubts should ever arise concerning degree legitimacy, we highly recommend consulting the GetEducated.com Diploma Mill Police.

** UPDATE 1 ** US News and World Report University Directory took down the page in question.  However, Google still has it cached.

** UPDATE 2 ** Inside Higher Ed is on the story.

** UPDATE 3 ** The Chronicle has a paragraph on the blunder.
