Schools with less-stringent residency requirements?

    OK, we've all been over the Big 3 and Athabasca with their zero residency requirements.

    Now, how about DL NA/RA schools with minimal residency requirements for Associate's/Bachelor's? In some cases finding a school that would require, say, 15 units taken through them might be preferable to the Big 3.

    Anybody know of these?

    SACS rules require 25% residency -- many SACS accredited schools hold right on that 25% with a 30 hours residency requirement for both their online and in-the-seat programs. None would be able to go under that 25% but some do require more.

    I'll jump in and say that I know of a community college in CA that has an 18-unit residency for their AA/AS and offers classes online. But that still works out to 30%. . .

    Try 100% Online RA Touro for the BSBA, BSHS, BSCS, or BSIT:

    They have a 30+credit residency requirement, so you have to take 10 classes from them to finish, basically.

    You may want to check out Eastern Illinois University BGS program. I believe they only require 15 hours residency credit to complet the program.
