Since my Bachelors isn't in psychology, does anybody know where I can go to take those courses for credit? Those courses are usually upper division undergraduate courses so I can't go to a local junior college. Are there RA colleges with DL programs that will let me take courses withOUT forcing me to also pursue a degree/certificate at their school? I only know of Amberton U that lets you takes courses for credit w/o pursuing a degree/certificate, but alas, they don't have the 2 courses I need to satisfy the masters psychology admission requirement. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
    If you're comfortable with exams, AMU/APU will accept a combination of two CBEs:

    Excelsior College - Research Methods in Psychology (lower level)
    Excelsior College | Research Methods in Psychology
    DSST/DANTES - Principles of Statistics
    http://getcollegecredit.com/assets/p...Statistics.pdf

    The two courses are sometimes one four-credit hour course, so keep that in mind while searching. I applied for the program, and the ECE was accepted for the first prerequisite. But it doesn't have statistics, so I had to take the second exam. If you see a research methods in psychology course that is four credit hours, please contact AMU/APU, and ask if it will suffice for both prerequisites.

    Good luck.

    Thanks again Graves. I just realized the previous posts regarding the cost for APU/AMU MA Psych was from 2010 and the tuition is now $350/cr instead of $300/cr so total tuition is now $13,650 instead of $11,700. Where is everybody going for their master's in psychology (general psychology ) these days (2016)? Has anybody here gotten their MS Psych from University of Valley Forge?
    Master of Science in Psychology (Non-Licensure) - University of Valley Forge Online - Online Christian University

    I couldn't find much on this forum about them but here's my experience so far:

    Good news: they only require 30 units for the program
    Bad news: their per unit tuition is $425, much higher than APU/AMU
    Good news: total program cost is still $12,750, lower than APU/AMU
    Bad news: their website doesn't tell you anything about admissions requirements
    Good news: they're regionally accredited (Middle States)
    Bad news: their big bold phone number on their website doesn't work
    Good news: their small phone works but goes to voicemail
    Bad news: nobody there has responded to my voicemail and it's been almost a week

    So far not a great first impression. But if anybody here has more experience with them, especially if you've gotten your MS Psych from them, please let me know what you think of them. Thanks.

    Thx for heads up that NDU's psych MA req's "attendance" to "live" online classes

    University of North Dakota I applied to and was accepted to their Masters in Social Work (MSW ) program online (I am open to MSW programs as well), which I was very excited about. I also knew about the tuition going in, comparable to Saybrook's. They obviously have a B&M, but the downside to this fabulous looking program is that the classes are taught "live" via web cams, so you actually must be available to sit at your desk on specific days and times in order to "attend" class. As a student at Ellis College of NYIT, I have grown accustomed to the flexibilty of completing my work when its convenient and getting it in my specified due dates. Needing to be at the computer (when I have a long commute from work to home) at specific times won't work well for me unfortunately.

    Will have to check to see if this is still the case, but, they were one place I was certainly considering. Grand Canyon University is another, with a cost that is actually lower than North Dakota University.
