    Boise State EdD Bargain

    The Doctoral Program in Educational Technology is a relative bargain at $31,416 for the entire program, and it is entirely online at an RA public school! One could also complete the program in three years, so 10K per year is likely in that best case aggressive scenario.

    Ed.D. Educational Technology - Boise State University - Educational Technology

    The only catch is this:

    "Students enrolled in the Ed.D. in Educational Technology are required to enroll in at least six credit hours during each of the first four semesters. In so doing, a student will have completed 24 credit hours within two years. A student’s research interest will be developed from the start of the program, but concentration on the literature review and research proposal development tends to gain momentum around the same time as the required comprehensive exam (this happens after course work has been completed). Only select cognate and elective courses can be completed during the summer session, no online core or research courses are offered during the summer."

    However, it does appear that they will consider transfer credits:

    "Students are encouraged to count previous graduate-level courses toward their cognate or elective credit requirements. Any transfer credits must have been taken within seven calendar years of the time of admission to the program, as well as meet other Graduate College requirements (see pp. 30-31 of the catalog linked below). Before transferring courses, or taking courses at other institutions to substitute for required courses, students are strongly encouraged have a conversation with their advisor."

    Isn't that Doctor of Education for $31,416.00 still too high?

    I don't believe it's as expensive as say Walden or other schools. And for it being NCATE accredited too, that's a heck of a deal.

    You might be able to find cheaper options. However, Boise State is a pretty decent school, in my opinion.

    Boise State University may not be well known nationally, but in this particular field it's highly regarded, and it has some really good people, like Ross Perkins. This program is an epic win for DL.

    It's less than the NSU program listed in your sig line, right?

    The Boise State Broncos have been a phenomenally successful Football team over the last decade. That fact alone has raised the university's national recognition.

    I pinged them about the program and the ability to transfer in some of my PhD level credits at NCU and USF and they wouldn't answer any questions until I proved that I would be a good candidate for the program. They do not want people who are in IT and have an interest in education , they want educational professionals.
