    Self-paced graduate programs/courses

    Is anyone aware of any self-paced graduate programs or collections of courses? I can only think of Western Governors University and the overseas schools that follow the annual exam system. It would be nice to take a class without worrying about strict submission deadlines that interfere with work and family. Turning down an overtime assignment to finish a paper adds hundreds of dollars to the cost of a course without any real benefit to the student.

    Thanks! That is just what I'm looking for. I wonder why there's not more of these at the graduate level. Real life happens and can bump any assignment. When you're young you can make school come first, but in adulthood you have to place it behind family, job and good health. Untimed courses eliminate the conflict.

    Nichols College has MBA , and Master of Leadership programs online that are self-paced. There are also undergraduate courses, although I do not know if those are self-paced.

    VESi has a collection of education oriented courses that can be transcribed through schools such as Morningside College for graduate level credit, and they're quite inexpensive comperably. One thing that you'll have to remember is most graduate programs will only take around 6 transfer credits (some take more, I think EC takes 15) so plan accordingly.

    The courses are intended to be continuing education for Teachers , but they can fit into interdisciplary or professional studies programs (WMNU and Amberton, respectively) and may also fullfill degree requirements if you're going after a Masters in Education , too.

    Best thing about it is that they're $190 for 2 credit classes and $230 for 3 credit classes.

    The list of courses can be found here
    Your mileage may vary; Do not Fold, Spindle or Mutilate; Taxes, tags, and freight are extra.
