    I have a friend who wants to get her AA DL degree in Liberal Arts.
    We have looked but can only seem to find St Leo.
    She did contact them but she said they were not able to answer her questions so she took them off her list. They seemd confused, she said. Pretty scary since that is their job.
    Can anyone give her some other schools to look into?
    Thanks

    I believe Clovis Community College offers a liberal arts degree as well...RA and $110 per class. Cheapest out there by far.

    Indiana University has an Associates of General Studies (same as A. of Liberal Arts, just different names) and a Bachelor of General Studies. They can be completed entirely online/coorespondence, have no residency requirements, and are fairly cheap. I don't know how many units can be transferred in for the associates, but you can transfer in up to 90 community college or CLEP/Dantes/AP/Excelsior tests. They require that the last 30 units of the BGS be upper division and through their school. Super informative staff, and they will do an unofficial transcript evaluation in less than 24 hours. (They also have online high school classes, just FYI.)

    Penn State has for many years offered a DL A.A. degree in Letters, Arts, and Sciences, which is a Liberal Arts degree. PSU also has an articulation agreement with the University of Iowa, where all PSU credits will transfer to the "LionHawk" Bachelor of Liberal Studies degree.

    Trivia.....I believe former MLB pitcher Al Leiter is an alumnus of this program.

    Not to keep pushing Clovis Community College...I don't know anything about them accept they are regionally accredited and online, but you really can't beat the price. For a 60-hour AA program you'd be looking at about $2200. Even when you add in books they'd be less expensive than any other option out there, especially if you buy used books from amazon or half.com. Their website it pretty vague so you'll have to call the school, but they are very helpful. I am 99% certian they offer a liberal arts AA.

    I live in Wasilla. About 55 miles from the big city of Anchorage!
    I was born here and I love it!
