Ranked in the top 15 public universities in the United States, and widely known as a "Public Ivy," Pennsylvania State University, also known as Penn State, is clearly a top notch school. What many people may not realize is that in addition to its 24 campuses throughout the state of Pennsylvania, there is also an online college -- Penn State World Campus.

Penn State World Campus allows students to get a degree from the comfort of their home and adds credibility to the world of online degrees. Deborah A. Benedetti, Penn State's outreach contact, told WalletPop in an interview that "Penn State World Campus now offers more than 70 certificate, associate's, bachelor's and master's degree programs online." The degrees include traditional liberal arts, specialized certificates, bachelor's, and master's degrees.
