It's a MOOC (massive open online course) and apparently the first online credited degree offered by a major institution.

Great deal. It's hard for me to believe it's $45,000 for a Georgia resident though.

If you have the grades, and graduated from a Georgia high school, HOPE will pay for a good chunk of the tuition. HOPE isn't as good as it used to be, but it still pays for a lot.

That's good to know. Those 5 years of college were some of the greatest days of my life.

yes, a two year graduate program including living expenses would cost a state resident that much, at least.
However by not including living expenses with the cost of the online program they're not really comparing apples and apples. The online tuition is only a tad less than the cost of on-campus tuition, I'm surprised it's as high as it is, actually. What a potential cash cow for schools if this works out.

These are annual estimates for undergrads, tuition is higher for grad programs.

So, this is a graduate program, well then, HOPE would not operate as it is only for undergraduate degrees. I didn't read the link, or apparently the thread heading very well, before posting, sorry.

Could be the first balance and popping of the college bubble.

I'm sending my son off to a Big Ten college, paying at least five times the cost I paid.

And I arguably received a better product with lower student to teacher ratios than 2013 colleges.

Five times more, lower value - definition of an economic bubble.

The only great thing is that he truly understands and took as many AP lasses as he could in high school and is starting as a mid-sophomore.

I expect to have to support him for some kind of grad school, but he's really hoping to be done in three years with his bachelors.

By then, there could be a ton of under $10k masters programs from top school for him to pursue.

My wife's grad school was 100% paid because shw was a TA. She also received a substantial untaxed 'stipend'.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
