I would do a bit of a comparison in price/time with your schedule and previous college credits. Even if you don't have any IT experience, Hodges gets your ready for several certifications such as A+, Network+, MOS etc. They are NS+DHS certified - meets CNSS standards. Anyways, this is how I see it by doing a quick calculation - starting from 0 credits. At Allen CC, it's $112/credit X 60 - $6720. At Hodges, you take 40 credits elsewhere (Saylor/Straighterline/Study.com) and finish the last 5 required courses at $3000/term. Example, I took 30 courses at Straighterline for 90 credits and it took me 6 months. That cost me $2370 ($59X30+600 membership) If you can finish 1 course in 1 month+1 week at Hodges, it will only cost you $3000+$2370=5370 total for your degree at Hodges.
