    I guess "low cost" is relative.

    I have been enjoying my studies with CalU and I would recommend it to people who are interested in continuing with their higher education degree. The design of the classes and the structure of the school allow each student to focus on the best way for them to learn based on time and style. Because of a six-week course format it is a heavy load for full-time working learners. Study guide for each course is very carefully prepared by CalU faculty which I did not see this feature when was enrolling in a PhD program at NCU. I believe CIU offers the lowest tuition for all of its on-line accredited programs in the USA. In addition, the school normally grants tuition scholarship once for every academic year.

    For anyone who is interested in tuition scholarship can contact Jillian Price for further questions.

    Ted!

    Thanks for all of your work! I agree, "low cost" is relevant and correlated with quality. Anyway, when 4:30 PM rolls around, (happy hour) I'll do some research on your post/listings and see what looks good.

    I do like the low cost tuition on CIU so far, that's like 3 more motorcycles in my garage with that one! LOL

    Thanks.

    Since everybody on this board probably has different incomes, I guess I'll allow each individual to decide for themselves which programs seem low enough cost to them.

    Education Programs
    Ed.D. in Organization Change
    The Organization Change concentration focuses on the broad field of organization change. Taking a comprehensive view of the world's changing external environments, this program emphasizes the theory, research, and practice of change within, between, and across organizations.

    During this next year, we will be exploring ways in which the program can be strengthened to better meet your needs as a professional in a dynamic and modern workplace. We believe this intensive review process will produce a more innovative model for delivering a high quality, scholar practitioner program in organization development and change. We look forward to taking in new doctoral students for in the Fall of 2010

    Is a distance learning option available?
    I knew of some aerospace engineering managers people taking a Pepperdine Ed.D. in organizational changes which involved weekend only classes at an off campus site near LAX.

    the old program:

    The OC program focuses on the world’s changing external environments through research, understanding, and practicing the change within, between, and across organizations. Students follow a sequence-oriented curriculum through a series of 12, eight-day,seminar-style sessions held at conference facilities. These sessions are scheduled quarterly over a three-year period and are supported with online segments.

    New Program - got to be less than 12, maybe 6 - I'm not sure
    OLD PRICE $1,150 per unit— Education doctoral programs, except Ed.D. in Organization Change, which is $11,310 per term.

    So $11,310 (x) 12 = $135,720 + maybe 3-5% increase - I'm guessing....

    Gametech,

    Can you tell me about the format of CIU please, is it 100% on line? What exams or other requirements are there that I should know about? How long will you probably take to complete your program?

    I found there wasn't that much information available on their Website and so I would appreciate any additional light that you could shed on this school. The tuition is compiling, it will come down to my requirements as a student.

    Thanks.

    Hello Morganplus8,

    Yeah, it is 100% online. 85% are written assignment, and 15% are online final exam taking at CIU's learn center. There are two comprehensive exams one scheduled after completion of the core courses (10) and the other scheduled after all the concentration courses taken (5). If I can handle two classes per term then it will take me approximately one and half year (with 8 terms per year) to finish. But it would be very hard to meet this goal- at least for me.

    Both tuition rate (plus discounted from scholarship) and the quality + specialization option of CIU's DBA program were the reason I decided to enroll in this school after they got DETC accreditation in 2/09. Note that the tuition rate is not locked under scholarship program.

    I am positive that you will find more reasons to enroll at CIU when talk to their representative.

    Good luck!

    Pepperdine is not DL. Moreover, tuition and fees are a kings ransom, and have been since my first investigation of them in the mid-1990's, when my Aunt supervised doctoral candidates there...

    Pepperdine has for some time had a DL MEd in Educational Technology and an EdD in Educational Technology with some DL components.
