    Here is the list of 47 DL MEd programs under $10,000. This list is provided with all the usual caveats, disclaimers, and qualifiers to the effect that one should never approach a British system university about "distance" programs but only "part-time" programs.

    I did see another post with degrees under 10K. I looked at one of them and the price you listed was $105 per credit but $400 per credit for out of state. I would guess the majority of people would be out of state.

    Did you break your list down by the out of state tuition?

    I used out-of-state tuition rather than in-state (unless I made a few errors here and there) on the theory that probably 49 times out of 50, the person reading the post will be an out-of-stater. But, anyhow, I also listed the website addresses so you can double-check my info.

    Ah, yes, indeed, Randell. Early on when I had just joined this list, I had come across thread-starting posts on DL MEd programs by Ramona and Randell (that being you). So I started putting together a hand-scribbeled list of some 182 DL MEd programs. Then Renshi sent me a PM regarding how my list was going and later he made another thread-starting starting post on DL MEd programs. I think it was to your thread that I volunteered that one could get a tuition-free MEd or MAT (from Lee University) or MA in Teaching English as a Second Language (through Azusa Pacific University) by working as a missionary English language teacher with English Language Institute China and that, if one was not so inclined, one could get a DL MEd from the University of North Dakota for $105/hr. x 32-36 hrs. = $3,360-$3780. I then gave a post to Renshi's thread of 14 MEd programs under $10,000 (of the at the time 56 schools which I had then gathered pricing info on), though that one did not include info on prices & majors, as this one does. Anyhow, I posted the DL MEds with no pricing info found, the MEds under $10,000, and the MEds $10,000-$15,000. Well, it is quarter to three in the morning here in Ohio and I'm kinda tired. But I'll get the MEds $15,000-$20,000 and the MEds over $20,000 posted as soon as humanly possible. Good night! - Ted.

    Forgive me for bringing back this thread from the dead, but I thought I'd mention a degree that I'd found buried in my favorites: Master of Arts in Education (Language and Literacy Education) from the University of the Philippines Open University.

    For those who are interested, the fees page says that the university charges 1000 pesos per academic unit, which comes out to 40,000 pesos for the tuition (40 "units" in the degree x 1000 pesos/unit). There are a number of misc. fees, but it's still tempting when you consider that the tuition fees alone come out to between 900-1000 American dollars (at the current exchange rate).

    Any takers? ;)

    This is one old thread that one doesn't need to ask for forgiveness for resurecting.

    True, but a lot of the info may be outdated. For instance, the DL program at University of North Dakota now charges $363 per credit, so it now costs over $10,000. I suspect similar things may have happened to other programs.

    Of course. Prices always go up. But even if the data is a bit wonky this list is still a collection of some of the cheapest programs around.
