    Wow, that’s quite a discount. It’s interesting since they just raised prices last December. I’d have to wonder if their enrollment went down when they did that.

    Nice find

    Wow, isn't that very close to the old price. You know the one that got them all the students in the first place. Sounds like they took some of their own classes :)

    Thanks BTW

    I called and it appears that they "had an influx of cash" and wanted to spend it on the students

    Interesting.. I must say I'm not to happy with their e-mail responses. If you called than obviously they were in the office, yet no one from the [email protected] responded to my question. I asked another question via that same e-mail address a while back (if I joined for a cert, but already had the max transfer credit would the cert still count towards the degree), and I never got a response to that either. Previous to that I did have some responses...

    I might have misunderstood the page, but I thought the tuition rollback was for any Masters Degree Program.

    Yeah, I am kinda confused myself. I don't see the 4,200.00 price reduction listed anywhere. Am I missing it?

    I don't believe them. If you have an influx of cash the last thing you need to do is incentivize prepayment.

    Nor did I, but lets face it - an admissions adisor is really a salesperson.

    I think they are just trying the older prices to see if it brings back the admissions numbers. I would think it will, and they will no doubt run “specials” more often.

    Siersema - I too had the question for Aspen regarding maxing out credit. They told me that they max out at 18 credits...if you have more than that (certs, pmp, transfer credit) - you only get the 18.

    Of course, feel free to verify...

    Didn't somebody near the top of the thread point out that the "roll-back" price of $4200 was pretty near the old price? What's that called when a business raises prices in order to roll 'em back (move 'em out) for the sale?

    Thanks Dave. Does that apply to a Bachelors, Masters? I doesn't really specifiy, unless I missed that as well.


    Take care,

    I interpreted the offer as applicable to Bachelors and Masters program. That's a deal for the MSIS. I'm just too busy to pursue it right now.

    What degrees are you interested in?

    Oh, don't worry about it. I was just thinking ahead for a friend of mine. He was talking about pursuing a MBA. I will give him the website so he can check into it.

    Thanks anyway,
