This "college" has misrepresented itself as an accredited institution. On their website they emphasize accreditation through the "Educational Accreditation Association." Please be aware that this organization is NOT authorized by the US Dept of Education to accredit schools.
The education is an absolute joke. The teaching staff that have been hired have no teaching ability, nor communication skills and you should expect month long delays to simple questions. All course work is graded by an open book test that literally takes material straight from the text; you do not need to read any of the material, nor do you gain any new knowledge.
Please be warned that colleges may not recognize BSU classes as credit because of their USDOE unaccredited status.

Even Wikipedia says that Breyer State is a scam

AUTHOR: TCSC - (United States)

POSTED: Saturday, August 29, 2020

Don't waste your time and money.

From Wikipedia:

Breyer State University, also called Breyer State University-Alabama, is an unaccredited distance education, for profit, private university that formerly operated in the U.S. states of Idaho and Alabama and now reports a location in Panama. It has been described by The New Republic magazine as a diploma mill that "claimed official-sounding accreditation to attract hundreds of people to obtain degrees.

The institution states that it is accredited by the Educational Accreditation Association (EAA), but the EAA does not claim to have appropriate recognition or authorization to grant an accreditation.

 In July 2008, the Asbury Park Press reported that the superintendent and two other administrators of the Freehold Regional High School District in central New Jersey had received tuition reimbursement for enrolling at Breyer State and had been given salary increases based on doctoral degrees issued by Breyer State University, described by the newspaper as "an unaccredited institution deemed an 'apparent diploma mill' by education officials in its home state of Alabama."

This was stated to be a violation of a New Jersey law against the professional use of titles and degrees earned from unaccredited institutions. The superintendent stated that he did not intend to seek an accredited doctoral degree, but he planned to continue using the title "Dr." The superintendent had to be ordered to stop using the title "Doctor".

Rebuttal To Breyer State University Ripoff

AUTHOR: Jenny Belkins - (United States of America)

POSTED: Thursday, August 16, 2012

I beg to differ with your comments. Even though the university is not accredited, it is far from a diploma mill. Having been through the system, I had to endure a rigorous application process, and challenging course work. Having obtained a degree from BSU, none of my employers have turned me down because of the "unaccredited status". They were more concerned with the knowledge learned and the certification I had on hand.
