Looking for the cheapest ( affordable) On line Educational Specialist degree i Special Education.
NCU (Northcentral University) just introduced an EDS program..11 classes, mid 2k per class i believe. They have a Special Education concentration as well
Liberty University requires 30 hours for their Ed.S. The cost is $1500 per class, or $750 if you are a veteran. They are NCATE certified.
Northwestern State University of Louisiana: Ed.S. in Educational Leadership and Instruction.
Two concentrations are available online, one of which is in Special Education. "Internet-only students do not pay any out-of-state fees." If I have it right that makes tuition 885.95 per 3 sh Internet course. The Ed.S. is 30 sh.
Jonathan beat me to it -- NSU of Louisiana is a great deal. Their other concentration is in Educational Technology, which can be a good thing for teachers and administrators to know.
Just to add to what managerial0550 said...
The Ed.S at NCU is a good option if you want the leadership focus to be something other than school administration. One focus is actually an extension of organizational leadership in general, with focus in the corporate sector as well. I think it is a rare find, and will probably end up being my terminal degree. All of it matriculates to EDD accept for 3 credits of it (so I am told by NCU admissions), so that is a huge bonus also, but you have to declare your EDD intentions before you complete the program (again so i am told).
I have been at NCU for a while and I don't think you have to declare your intentions but it might help fi they change some of the programs on you. I have changed in and out of programs a LOT and have never been burnt by it. Of course if they do change something I will suffer but the worst case scenario is that I have to take another class or two. No big deal. It is true, the OL courses are truly multi-disciplinary and that is unique as far as I can tell.
