    Which commonly known state colleges have the lowest cost BA or BS degrees that can be completed entirely by distance that would meet the admission requirements to the MBA program at CSU Dominguez Hills?
    I am not against RA private schools, but they are likely costlier and I'm looking for a school where people don't ask for explanation when you mention the name.
    Any CSU or other state public university undergraduate business (or liberal arts degrees containing the minimum required business courses) that can be completed online etc. and are recommended?

    try Fort Hays state University:

    $130 per credit hour, I think it's the cheapest around.

    Do you really expect someone else to do all your research for you ... right down to telling you which of how many programs is least expensive? Hmm. Well, I really don't know which one of these is the least expensive, but here's an array of undergrad dl state university business programs. Happy hunting!

    Thanks for the info. I didn't need exact tuition costs, but I figured someone had already looked this up and would have the information at hand.
    I'm looking for the ones that cost the least additional over going to a CSU school full time as an on campus student yet have some name recognition also.

    If you are in Florida, UF has an online BA that is pretty cheap. Around $100 credit hour. I think FIT does too.

    I'm in California, so if not a CSU school, then out-of-state State Univerisities with lowest non-resident tuition costs.

    I agree.

    However, while I understand your reasoning about wanting a school with a B&M presense to avoid questions, I expect anything that has "State" in the name is probably okay, even if it doesn't have a physical campus. For example, no one has said anything about my Bachelor's, and it's from Charter Oak State College. Typical conversation:

    Q: Where'd you go?
    A: Charter Oak State College
    Q: Where's that?
    A: Connecticut.
    Q: Cool.

    But whatever you decide, good luck!

    If your ultimate goal is a CSUDH MBA why not go with one of the big 3? Much quicker and cheaper. Good luck!

    CSU Fresno www.csufresno.edu would be in-state.

    What exactly does too much spice in one's diet do to a person? What is it about me that causes you to make that diagnosis?

    LSU's independent study program charges about $229 total for a 3 semester hour class and offers a degree in general studies through the University of New Orleans. The total tuition cost would be less than $10K for an entire 4-year degree.

    I saw a bunch of online couses on the CSUF web site so I called to ask about degree programs today. The person I spoke to said they have online courses, but isn't aware of any complete online degree program at CSU Fresno.

    Can you earn a degree from them 100% DL? I tried to find the link but did not have any luck.
