Help picking school

If this is the wrong place to ask this I’d appreciate a point in the right direction.

I’m looking at a couple of options for a bachelor’s in cybersecurity and I’m hoping to get some input on chosing between the two.

The first I’m looking at is the cybersecurity program at Full Sail. A couple of the biggest perks are that it is guaranteed all online and is an accelerated program. I’ve got a couple friends who went there for totally unrelated degrees so they can’t speak to the program itself, but it sounds like the school provides a lot of practical knowledge and support on starting a career. The downsides are that it is fairly expensive and I can’t get any clear information on if a degree there is valuable or not.

My other option is a bachelor’s in IT Networking/Cybersecurity from a local community college. This route would definitely be cheaper than Full Sail by far. It sounds like I would get some certification during the program on too of the degree as well and they say it’s a top program on the west coast. One of the biggest issues I see there is that I can’t guarantee all the classes will stay all online after the pandemic and my work schedule has no flexibility in it so in person classes aren’t an option. I also don’t know if a degree from a community college would be very respected either.

Any input anyone has would be immensely appreciated. Thank you very much.

Full sail is not a regionally accredited school, so a degree from there is not going to have the same weight as a degree from a traditional college, I don’t think.
