    Where could I find some cheap college-level correspondence courses (not online courses) in the following subjects: English, Bible, Geography, Sociology, History?

    Again, I'm looking for print-based, not online courses.

    Thanks for any help.

    Just looking now to renew my teaching certificate the fastest way possible.

    The fastest way for me to renew my credential was to go back to National University, because they have one-month classes. I finished the required courses in about two months. The only problem is the fact that it wasn't cheap, so it might not fit your requirements. I paid about $900 per class. As the old saying goes "Cheap, fast, good; pick any two".

    That's something that definitely should be considered, and I actually did, but I just couldn't afford it, as their tuition for one course now is almost $1600.

    Agreed, that's too much just to renew your credential.

    Would something from Aspen U work for credential renewal?

    If you pay out of pocket any class grad or undergrad will cost you $900 with National University via their Peruvian office.

    I'm afraid not; I need an RA school.

    I don't know what's involved in renewal, but can you take graduate level courses with an EDU prefix? If so, annenberg media has tons of them for CHEAP. Less than $100 per credit, all classes are either 2 or 3 credits and all have EDU prefix. Teacher Professional Development and Teacher Resources by Annenberg Media the credit is offered through Colorado State I believe, and it's correspondence -not online-. You watch the videos and mail in the homework.

    Go into the "courses" tab and follow the links for "credit"

    This is a great find, Farina -- thanks!

    I was just about to post a new topic about cheap graduate-level writing courses.

    Do you know of any others?

    Greetings,

    Both the best and the worst RA correspondence course I ever took cost about the same. Chestnuts are for squirrels. ;-)

    I thought I would add this...... at about $27 a credit hour Seminary Extension (DETC) is about as cheap as college credit gets.
