    Hello,

    I have been accepted into the Liberty University Ed.S. program. Because I receive the military tuition discount, I added it all up and noticed that I can enroll in the Ed.D. program and still spend only $16,000. The only problem is that I would have to travel to Liberty 4 different times, which is difficult because I live and teach in Hanoi, Vietnam.

    I've searched tirelessly for another option. The only other consideration is CMU because it is cheap and it doesn't require any visits to the school. However, I'm not fond of the program (Doctorate of Technology). I prefer to do something related to curriculum and/or teaching.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    I considered ACE, but I don't know if the degree would give me the opportunity to teach at the university level. I want to leave that door open if I decide to go that route in the future.

    Online Doctorate in Education - University of the Cumberlands

    $23k ~ not sure if you get any military discount.

    says it can be done 100% online.

    That's true, but you have to be online to be in class in the evening East North America time, and that can be difficult for those who live in Asia and work during the day.
