However -

There are some diplomas that aren't accepted. There are many "diploma mills" online that aren't accredited by anyone, the Army included. Just a few weeks ago I was offered a diploma for a Doctorate & some time ago another one for a Professorship. Wouldn't mean a thing unless I wanted to impress some friends. All I had to do was pay, I think, $50 for one & $100 for the other.

This looks like an old posting. Check to see if that is accepted as a diploma.

I didn't look at the site, but as long as the school is accredited, they should take it. Your recruiter will tell you if it's not any good.
