Hi. I really had my heart set on Robert Morris University's online MS of Internet Information Systems Degree but I just realized that the program itself is not accredited. It's a good school, and is itself fully accredited, but that particular graduate program is not. Can anyone offer some good advice as to how crucial accreditation will be. I've never actually had a position in the computer science field (it was my minor).

I would check out the various IT field certifications. In no particular order:

Microsoft- MCSE
Cisco- CCNA, CCNP and CCIE
Linux- RHCE
VMware- VCP

And Geek U. None of the other 4 cover that material.

You can self-study for all of these.

Thanks 98Springer, I'm going to start w/ geeku if admitted, and the free online intro to linux being offered this summer through the Linux Foundation. I would have commented sooner but was having problems logging in.
