The online learning steals and deals team at Get Educated researched and compared the sticker prices of 683 regionally accredited online bachelor degrees. We then compiled this special list of the cheapest online bachelor degrees just for you, the cost-shy consumer.

 

Where to Get the Cheapest Online Bachelor Degrees

Surprise, surprise, the majority of the cheapest online colleges are non-profit, public institutions. The University of Wyoming, Colorado State University, Macon State College – these guys have been helping traditional residential students get educated since the 1870s.

 

So why are these online bachelor degrees so cheap? Is there something wrong with them?

 

Rest assured, the only thing “cheap” about any of these schools is their unbelievably low sticker price.

 

Tuition is low for these colleges because you, and millions of your closest taxpayer friends, have already helped pay for these degrees. Public colleges and universities are heavily subsidized through the government mandated donation system otherwise known as your tax dollars.

 

So go ahead, get educated on the cheap.

    You have missed NAU Extended Campus, personalized Learning.

    They have a BA in Liberal Studies
    BBA in Small Business
    BS in Computer Science

    It costs 5000 for 12 months. No fees or books needed.

  2. Lacey says:

    This is a poor representation of a list that will give “in-state” tuition for online degree programs. This is a list of colleges that offer the WUE tuition rate.

    • VickyPhillips says:

      Hi Lacey,

      This list is a fact-based list of the least expensive bachelor’s programs online in the United States. The list is based on a comprehensive survey of more than 750 bachelor’s degree programs online and is specific to regionally accredited colleges.

      I do not know what you mean by “WUE” tuition so I cannot respond to that.

      You can at any time search all the 750+ online bachelor’s degrees in the Get Educated online degree directory and self-rank them by cost at any time.

      Just go to: http://www.geteducated.com/profiles/search/online-bachelor&SS=Search%20by%20Level%20%3E%20Online%20Bachelor

      Once there HIT the SORT by COST button at the top to create your own lost of the most affordable online degrees. The directory lists both regionally and nationally accredited programs and each degree profile lists both in state and out of state tuition and fees SPECIFIC to the online learning option at each school.

      Good Luck in your search!
      Vicky
