Get a discount for earning your degree online
Mizzou Offers Online Incentive « CBS St. Louis
I thought schools that compete in power conferences wanted more face-to-face students they could charge a ton of fees. I guess they taking money however they can get it.
or . . . . . . . . . maybe they're actually interested in educating people.
It can't be that simple. [vulgar emoticon deleted by Mod]
This offer only applies to Missouri residents.
"Eligible students must be Missouri residents and graduates of a Missouri public community college. They also must be working toward a degree from the university’s undergraduate distance programs."
Personally, I'm fascinated by the fact that there are vulgar emoticons.
When we first introduced the new batch of emoticons we eliminated a bunch that were kinda gross. Some remain. People should not mistake their existence for approved use. I reserve the right to edit, especially when you're in conversation with me. Please try to be nice, not offensive.
My bad. Liberty might recall my degree for using such emoticons.
Hmmm well Liberty might be upset but I'm not.
Back to the topic at hand, which is a discount for taking online courses:
This may be new at Mizzou, but it's not a new concept. UIS (University of Illinois at Springfield) for example, is currently charging $313 per credit hour for in-state on-campus students, $631 for out-of-state on-campus students, and $358 for online-only students, regardless of residency. (I guess that's only a discount for out-of-state students.)
