    I was asked recently by a friend about online education from "ivy league" schools and was unable to come up with any on the spot; are there any out there?

    Thanks!

    There's also Columbia. 100% online.

    http://www.cvn.columbia.edu

    I think there are a few more - but you'ld have to search the archives for details.

    The most prestigious (open to opinion I guess) of the online degrees are Harvard, Columbia, and Penn State. All three have 100% online degrees that don't say "online" on the degree!

    Columbia Universities Teachers College just rolled out a new online masters degree.

    Not Ivy, but equally as good is Stanford's online masters degrees.

    NYU, USC, Boston University, Purdue, Duke, and a number of other Tier 1 universities offer online degrees as well. Let me know if you want any links.

    Stanford's has a catch, though. Your company has to be a member of their network.

    Typical tuition for a newly matriculating student registering for a three credit course would be $3552 + CVN fee $375 + transcript fee $75 (one-time) = $4002.

    Basically 40 grand for a 30 units MS. A nice cash cow for Columbia.

    I think that could be said for many online degrees, especially the high priced MBAs.

    40 grand for an Ivy League masters degree sounds like a decent deal to me. If they offered a business or accounting degree I would do it.

    Based upon my reading of threads on this board and other boards I must say that I do not think that any of the Harvard degrees are available 100% online.

    Brian,

    You didn't specifically mention masters vs. certificate programs so you may want to consider ecornell.

    Although Stanford is not an Ivy, you may want to consider it's online Masters (provided you're employer is a member of SCPD). The website leads me to believe you can do it's MS entirely online as long as it's Biomedical Informatics, Comp Sci, Elec Eng, Mgt Science, or Mech Eng. Anyone out there doing a on line Stanford MS that could confirm? (Just curious...)

    Although UF is not Ivy League, it is pretty damn good!

    As far as I know there are still no Ivy-Ivy Equivalent schools that offer 100% DL degrees in areas that are not either engineering or computer science, where there has long been significant acceptance of the DL format. Even Teachers' College is offering the DL master's in teaching and computing. Penn State and UF I would put more in the category of "flagship state schools," where there has long been more acceptance of DL for non-engineering/CS degrees, and where state regents need more cashflow with new DL degrees.

    University of Pennsylvania, an Ivy League school, has an executive EdD in Higher Education Management that requires one weekend per month in Philadelphia but is otherwise online. I know that's not the same thing, but it may be practical for people from as far as Northern Virginia to as far as Southern Connecticut, so I thought it was worth mentioning.

    It's ridiculously expensive, by the way -- at least $100,000. But you're done start to finish in two years and they're ranked top ten in Education.

    Penn is probably the most forgotten Ivy, although most people seem to forget altogether that the "Ivy League" originally referred to football and not to some kind of educational sacrament. Does anyone know what group prominent eastern liberal arts colleges like Williams and Swarthmore fall into? I regularly see these referred to as "Ivy League schools," often by parents of students there who certainly know better. Can anyone name the Seven Sisters? We should offer prizes.

    Perhaps somebody could correct me if I'm wrong, but I'll say: Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Moubt Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar, and Wellesley.
