    30 college credits from an acceptable institution (e.g. community college), including 6 college credits in a Maths subject plus a High School Diploma. If you do not have 6 college credits in Maths then you must pass grade 12 high school Maths at a grade of A – B or

    Performance-Based Admission: If you do not qualify for the Standard Entry Route, apply for performance-based admission if you meet any one of the following criteria:

    • High school diploma or
    • 12 college credits or
    • Work experience will be considered on an individual basis.

    So, if you collect lots of CLEP, DSST, Excelsior exam credits, you may be eligible to enroll into University of London's online computer science program.
    I wish I could find this earlier! tuition is £10k for 3 years... it means it costs about £3,300 per year.
    That sounds very affordable.

    In U.S. most of top programs will cost you over $30k+. I've checked this with Northeastern University's online IT degree program.

    I think this is right. If you search in some countries (like India), you are going to find inexpensive and good degrees for a quite low price!

    Hello!


    They do. I thought about enrolling there and they would have accepted me (but I decided against them) and a member of this forum, chrisjm18, earned his MBA there!


    Best regards,

    I still think University of London has the best program. I will post here if I get accepted. Their application deadline is August.

    Please wish me luck! ;)
    I'm planning to get both computer science Bachelor's and Master's completely online.

    Do you plan to do both at once?

    Thanks! :)

    If possible, yes. Both online Bachelor and Master are part-time programs... and they cost £10k British pounds each. They allow you to pay per module and course.

    You may, but only if those at the University of London agree that those constitute academic credit.

    Yes. and I've been working in CS and IT industry for many years.

    • High school diploma or
    • 12 college credits or
    • Work experience will be considered on an individual basis.
    It says or ... that means if you have high school diploma and some work experience, you can still apply to the program.
    In that case, your work experience should be related to computer science I guess.

    If you have any college credits it will be more helpful obviously but not required.
