    I think New Mexico State University is the cheapest for Civilian.

    If your friend lives in California then the new Cal State Ed.Ds should be affordable.

    Prescott has a Ph.D. in education - tuition around $8500 per term so not cheap.

    If she doesn't mind an Evangelical Christian school, Liberty University has a reasonably priced EdD in Teaching and Learning . It's sixty credit-hours, $425 per credit-hour, for a total of $25,500. However, they say that those with an EdS degree may be exempt from up to half, so if they consider your friend's second Master's similarly, s/he may be about to do their EdD with just thirty credit-hours for just $12,250.

    Do you have a more specific web address for that program? I go through their distance learning pages and I can find their Bachelor's and Master's degree programs but no mention of a distance doctorate.

    I've sent email inquiries to the folks at University of Wyoming about the possibility of a distance ed EdD but have never received a reply.

    Regarding New Mexico State University, I just inquired within the last few days, and here's what I found out. They start a distance learning PhD cohort every two years, and the application deadline for the one that will be starting in summer 2008 was January 15, 2008. Although I received an application packet, I didn't have time to submit it before the deadline. The program requires the GRE. I wasn't able to determine from the web site exactly what the tuition would be for out-of-state students, and I also was unable to determine if they offer a distance-only EdS. There is (was -- I can't seem to locate it again) such a program listed on the web site, but the person I spoke with about the PhD program seemed to imply that the distance PhD replaced (or absorbed) the EdS. I have a pending email inquiry to the person who was listed as the EdS contact on the web site, but I haven't heard back.

    The PhD program requires summer residencies. Here is the web site: http://vrc.nmsu.edu/distance/degrees/details.cfm?id=20

    Ooops, correction on New Mexico State -- their PhD program does not require the GRE.

    At one point I expected to apply for the NMSU program. I like their focus on social issues and instructional technology , and the program is designed to fit into NMSU's policy that if you take only online courses and only six credits per term or less, then you pay in state tuition -- making it less expensive than a butt-in-seat program at my local state university.

    What got me, though, was that the NMSU program requires two weeks in Las Cruces in each of three consecutive summers. That essentially would mean I would have no annual leave for anything else until 2011. In the end I just couldn't ask my wife to accept that, so I took to looking elsewhere.

    On the other hand, for a schoolteacher or someone else with the time, it's great, because it means that a significant percentage of the credits in the program are earned on campus rather than online, which should help when dealing with distance learning skeptics.

    So did anyone here apply for it?

    You are correct that they make no mention of a distance EdD on their distance learning page. The links are here: http://ed.uwyo.edu/Doc_studies.asp or http://ed.uwyo.edu/coed_edd.asp .

    Prescott's tuition is $8,490/term which, at two terms a year, is $16,980/year, which, over the four to seven years time in program, comes out to between $67,920 and $98,860. You're right it's not cheap.

    The University of Wyoming's doctoral program is 80-82 hours long if you're entering without a master's degree and one can get 28-33 hours credit if one is entering with a master's degree, hence 49-52 post-master's hours. Tuition for in-staters is $164/hour while tuition for out-of-staters is $470/hour. This means that an in-stater will eventually pay between $8,036 and $13,448 (depending on whether or not he/she has a master's degree) while the out-of-stater will eventually pay between $23,030 and $38,540 (depending on whether or not he/she has a master's degree).
