    BYU-I - BS in Software Engineering

    Link: Software Engineering

    Does anyone have any input this program? Is it accredited? I am strongly thinking of pursuing a software engineering undergrad that won't break the bank and this one seems to hit a lot of marks.

    Thanks!

    Yes, it's ABET accredited: Degrees

    However be sure to check on the non-LDS tuition rates if you aren't a member of the church. The cost doubles. One might almost consider converting for a couple of years.

    Ah - hadn't clued into that - and not really an option. $320/cr hour still not -that- bad.

    Any thought on software development programs?

    Found this link: Online Computer Science Degrees | ComputerScienceOnline.org

    And I am stoked to see that my Alma Matter, Fort Hays State University (GO TIGERS!) now has a Computer Science degree available online! Cost? $207/credit hour - CHEAP! I inquired... obviously! :-)

    This also looks like a cheaper way to get some of the harder to find UL CS credits for TESU.

    There's a tab over there labelled "Other fees"

    You'll need to email the computer science director himself (Dr. Stephen Leach) for the fee.

    His email is sleach@pc.fsu.edu

    The current cost is $299 per credit hour.

    I can't screenshot anything at this moment to show you since I've yet to sign up for Fall term.

    **I'm a current student, doing the BA in CS (out of state)

    Non-LDS member tuition is cheaper, as you have to donate 10% of your salary to the church. If my current salary would be $18,000.00 per year for the rest of my life. hahaha

    Ah ok - I emailed him directly. How come BA rather than BS.. if you don't mind my asking? And can you sign up anytime? How has your experience been so far (or have you started yet) ?
