I want to make a career change, either to IT or CS. I have a teaching degree, so I won't need to complete general education requirements. I have found three cheap routes, but they all have problems: 1. In-state tuition, public university. The most affordable CS degree in my state would cost $7306, but that is taking 18 credits per quarter, which I can't do with my busy 60 hour/week job. If I took 6 credits per quarter, the cost is much higher, at $11,000, impossible at my salary. 2. WGU or a similar competency-based program. Although I think this appears to be quality program, my current job is 60 hours per week, so I don't have time to study this program quickly, so the price-per-quarter method is not good. 3. TESU or a similar low-credit degree, with credit from alternative sources. This is affordable, at round $5,000 for a degree, but I'm concerned this isn't a route for actually learning the material and preparing for a job. I'm just looking for an option that I can complete at a slow pace (i.e. 6 credits per semester). Is there any type of route to either IT or CS, where the tuition is lower when completed at a slow pace?
