Kill Two Birds: Certification + Degree
For those who struggle with the notion of obtaining a degree vs. keeping up on practical knowledge in IT, there's good news: Why not do both?
The Born2Learn site posts a matrix of 21 Microsoft certification exams that can be counted toward college credit (mainly lower division, but there are some upper division ones). Yes, the benefits are ginormous, such as fulfilling certifications through corporate tuition assistance (that is, if your company offers it).
Here's a bonus: If you've taken any of the exams listed, you can get credit for them on your transcript. That'll help those who are currently in the process of matriculating (although it won't help if you paid out of pocket to obtain those certificates). More info here.
