    I hope I didn't make any mistakes this time. Again, I'll make the disclaimer that this degree plan can be made cheaper by those who can score high enough for 12 credits on a language CLEP and those who can complete 4 or more Straighterline courses in a month. This plan assumes that one will study before signing up for ALEKS so that all 4 courses can be passed within a month. Even with 3 extra months of fees at $20 per month, the plan still comes out below UotP's total cost of $4050. Just in case there is any confusion, I'm am using TESC's Per Credit Tuition Plan and using the TECEPs to satisfy the residency requirements. There are no residency requirements for TESC's two other, non-military tuition plans.
