Online Bachelors in Education

I choose to take classes online as opposed to the traditional classroom setting because of my job. I thought, hey, I can work on my class work at my own pace, and not have to worry about running to classes after work and getting home late. I thought this to be the perfect solution. Well it turned out to costly.

Once I signed up for the program, picked out my classes, and saw the tuition bill, I was shocked. The per credit rate was twice that of the other schools I was looking at, and not only that, you don't get a full three credits like at other schools. Financial aid would max out for me, I would have to get loans, because the tuition was so high.

The semester at the other schools were about to begin, and I did not know what to do. I decided to take one course. I figured I would finish the one course and transfer the credit to one of the other schools in the spring. Well spring came, I registered at another local college, and tried to transfer the credit. There was a problem because the traditional college did not deal in units.

Do not misunderstand me, the class work was challenging, yet easy enough to master. The instructor was great in responding to my needs, and I was able to work around my job. The only major problem it was just not affordable for me. If anyone has the means, and time, then go for University of Phoenix online college. If you are on a budget, this is not the school for you.
