KD College Prep President David Dillard said some people are taking advantage of it and the goal is to get the credit, not the education.
"And that becomes a burden for an employer. That becomes a burden for society, because you don't know what you're getting and degrees could be watered down," said Dillard.
He said when you add distance into the process, there will be vulnerabilities in the system.
"If the teacher never has a chance to see the student, then obviously, there are opportunities for people to take advantage of it," said Dillard.
He said the difference between online classes in high school is that they're still trying to parent students. Online college courses, it's up to the young adult to apply themselves, or not.
Dillard added the spotlight is causing the affluent to get caught in college cheating scandals in real life and online.
