As a professional and a parent I have some thoughts on this. Typically unless you are accepted to attend an Ivy League College, there is no significant differentiation between colleges.
As a employer I am looking to see that you had what it takes to attend and successfully graduate college, whether it was online, in person, or a smaller university.
As a parent, I am now much more impressed with candidates who choose financially to take advantage of less expensive higher level learning and set themselves up for future successes by saving now. This shows the ability to look ahead at the future and actively plan for your stability.

Fresh out of college/university yes, but not after several years of work. What is more important is internships. Try to take as many internships as you can before you leave college/university.
