    Allen Community College Computer-Related Degrees

    ACC in Kansas has several AS and AAS degrees that seem to be fully online. I say "seem to be" because their website isn't very helpful in indicating whether all of their programs or just some are available online only. The cost is excellent and they're RA. Furthermore, they have agreements with other KS schools for transfer credit. Fort Hays has some interesting BS degrees for the future.

    Has anyone looked into ACC and any feedback regarding their computer-related degrees?

    As you indicated, I did not see a clear, definitive statement that students can complete any of the degrees 100% online. It may still be true but I didn't see it written. If someone were to fall in love with ACC and decide that no other option will do then I'd suggest that this be verified. Otherwise, if it turns out that some courses can not be completed online, it is often possible to take those courses elsewhere and transfer the credits over to ACC . Also, if you thought you might wind up at FHSU eventually then someone might simply just start there and not have to worry about the whole transfer process. FHSU also has one of the lowest costs per credit deals.

    Thanks for the response. I plan on taking some time in the upcoming weeks to call and speak with an advisor regarding the online programs since I was already accepted (I think they pretty much accept everyone who applies). Unfortunately, FHSU's tuition for out of state students is over $14K. I don't even live in a contiguous state for the lowered tuition, so my thoughts are to attend ACC and transfer if necessary. I'm mostly trying to move into the Network department here at work, and since I'm internal and know our business, an AAS may be enough to get started there.

    FHSU has an online tuition rate that's a lot cheaper.
