    "Aspen’s monthly installment plan will allow a graduate degree student to make three $350 monthly tuition payments (due at the start of week 1, week 5, and week 9) during each 10-week class. This plan will be offered to both existing students and new students effective June 1, 2013."

    I do not see the innovation. It is a nothing press release. For almost half that price one can earned an RA degree that has maximum portability and utility. Also at RA schools one will not be on the hook for the whole program tuition. These monthly payment plan are traps.

    Innovative...OK... whatever? Perhaps Title IV is an issue at this point for Aspen University. At one time I really liked Aspen University. However, since they have raised tuition, I see them as just another nationally accredited online university charging too much for tuition. (Though $350.00 is not horrible.)

    Didn't Aspen offer good quality, inexpensive degrees in the past?

    At one point yes. However, there are far better alternatives available now.

    And that list is just RA non-AACSB. There are also RA AACSB MBAs for less than Aspen's monthly-installment tuition.
