    Seeking the cheapest undergraduate and graduate credits available. In our four person family everyone is involved is distance learning. Be well.

  2. You might want to check out the Excelsior College DistanceLearn database, available through Peterson's online at$.startup

    Scroll down to the bottom of the page; you can search by key word, subject, delivery media, undergraduate/graduate credit and maximum cost.

    But have some caution; not all schools will accept all transfer credit, so if your goal is a degree, you'd do better to find one school that fits your needs pretty well and take courses through them or courses from other schools that they've approved.

    I put my own table of these up last year, then couldn't find it, but Bill Gossett found it and reposted it, so it is somewhere on this forum, hopefully findable by search. As I recall, the range was from under $50 a unit to over $400 -- and, as always, no apparent correlation between cost and quality.

    Here is an updated (as of two or three months ago) version. CSU Sacramento isn't on the list. Their offerings are confined to wastewater management and, iirc, were being offered as CEUs or something rather than academic credits. Several schools seem to have discontinued correspondence study. This appears to have been in favor of online courses at a few schools, or, as with a couple, by simply dropping them or hiding the pages so well I couldn't find them in a reasonable time frame.

    Many schools charge fees in addition to tuition. Registration and/or administrative fees range from $0 to $75 per course. A few tack on other, additional fees.

    Here is the tuition information for those who are busy :D .
    U of UTAH $105.00
    USU $110.00
    UVSC $120.00
    SUU $105.00
    CEU $74.50
    SLCC $84.50

    :D LOL!! Yeah, I looked at 8/30 and kindof assumed because of the proximity to today's date it was recent.
    Some of my friends have suggested I should reign in my assumptions a little. ;) I'll assume they are correct.
