The cost you see on any degree is an estimate for the entire degree program. It includes tuition + distance learning fees to earn the entire degree or certificate.
Each profile in our directory details how the cost estimate is arrived at so just look at any profile to see what we added up to get the total estimated cost.
Example: Look at the online bachelors degree profile for the University System of Georgia online IT bachelors degree and you will see cost data displayed (as you will on any profile)
Credits: 120 minimum (Semester Credits)
State Residents: $ 350.00 per semester credit
Out of State: $ 350.00 per semester credit
Total Cost of Degree: $42,000.00 ($350.00 x 120)
The $42,000 estimate is a calculation of 120 minimum credits x $350 per credit. If you have transfer credits it will cost you less to complete this degree but all cost estimates given assume you will need to complete all the required courses/credits on the college that interests you.
All the Best
