    Of late, I have been doing a lot of thinking about teaching and the consistent "18 credits needed" jargon common therein. I had an email communique with someone well established in the online business who suggested graduate certificates as a possible consideration.

    In the vast experience of this forum, where have posters seen the cheapest graduate certificates?

    Thanks for the responses...I guess I am looking for cheaper than NCU. Just a thought about expanding my "bag of tricks" to show I have 18 units in a particular area.

    The extension stuff looks promising...I am going to check that out more closely.

    Thanks!

    Apus

    Thanks for the informative post...

    I didn't realize that APUS offered so many certificates. I have found gradschool.com to be an interesting source, as well.

    APUS is a good deal, I’ve taken some history and humanities classes with them. The courses are rather structured and in all honesty rather rigorous also. To your point the deep selection of courses outside of the standard business fair make them a compelling RA online school.

    If anyone has any questions about them I'll try and field them.
