    Well, it's expensive and not APA accredited. What are your goals that you think you need to earn a doctorate, and what are your criteria such that you're considering this one?

    Yeah wow it is expensive..I'm looking for a doctorate for a marketing edge. Plus all my clients call me dr. and I always have to correct them that I am not a dr. so not having to do that would make life much easier...I am looking for any doctorate in a simiar field.

    Keiser University makes it almost impossible to figure out how much their graduate-level tuition is per credit, which means the cost is outrageous. Stay away!

    The per-credit-hour charge for part-time undergraduate students at Keiser University at Ft Lauderdale in 2013-2014 was $642 (or over $1900 for one 3-credit undergraduate class).

    Does anyone know what Keiser University charges for graduate level credits?

    Well, a few months ago you asked about the PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. What about that one?

    Based on your goals does the degree need to be regionally accredited or will nationally accredited do as well? California Southern University has a PsyD that is reasonable (20,000 ish) and qualifies for Clinical Psych licensure in California. They are in the RA process (no guarantee).

    Calsouthern's program looks great and I really considered it, however my issue with it is using PsyD after my name as a social worker. PhD does not necessarily mean psychologist but PsyD is a pretty big implication that I'm a psychologist

    What about California Coast's Doctor of Education in Educational Psychology. Looks like at 290 per unit it comes in even less expensive than CalSouthern even with a couple of additional levelling classes if needed.

    That looks interesting. Although educational psychology is a far cry from what I practice...On the other hand it is a doctorate in a similar disciple and edd does not imply psychogist..I will definitely add this to the list..Thanks!

    Nothing so exciting. That program at ULM comes up from time to time so I went looking for previous threads about it, then saw that the same guy had posted about it.
