    Hello All,

    I recently started the MSIT from American Public University. The program is already a good deal but I was wondering if there was any way to make it cheaper through testing out classes or maybe taking courses at other cheaper schools (DETC and NA included). Although I can find plenty of ressources for undergrad credit, there isn't a lot of information available for graduate level courses.

    I would be interested in finding equivalencies for the following classes:


    INFO531 Management Information Systems 3 hours
    INFO620 Enterprise Database Systems 3 hours
    ISSC680 Information Security Management 3 hours
    ITMG624 Information Technology Project Management 3 hours
    ITMG625 IT Project Management: Integration, Scope and Time 3 hours
    ITMG626 IT Project Management: Cost and Communications 3 hours
    ITMG627 IT Project Management: HR and Procurement 3 hours
    ITMG628 IT Project Management: Quality and Risk 3 hours
    ITMG630 Project Management for e-Business 3 hours


    Any ideas are welcome...


    Thanks in advance !

    I was thinking you may have found one of the cheapest grad degrees around, but on the Minot State website it states: Per credit tuition and feesOn MSU Campus$318.40IVN, Online, Distance$320.75


    So 320.75 is per credit. Still a pretty good deal for a state school (I know nothing of their reputation).

    I did the math correctly, but for some reason I mistyped course and credit hour. Just reading my post, I should have picked up my mistake (10 courses at $320.75 is $3,207.50, not the $9,622.50 that I calculated).

    Either way, that has still got to be one of the cheapest tech masters that I have seen. Two of the other cheap tech masters that I know of are also in the Dakotas (DSU and NDSU). If you are really adventurous, Georgia Tech just started accepting applications for their sub $7,000 MOOC MS in Computer Science.

    This is a great time to be in the market for a distance tech masters.
