Well after 6 years from getting my Associates degree in IST, I'm finally delving back into the college scene. I just enrolled in the University of Phoenix online Bachelor's degree program. When I am done, I will have an Associates in IST - Web Design/Networking and a Bachelor's in IST - Systems Security.

It's pretty expensive compared to traditional classes, but I'm looking at the fact that I have a Wife and Son, plus benefit of online class is nice for me.

$1545/class each class is 5 weeks long.
$75 book fee/class.

My work pays for some, but not all so the rest will be coming out of student loans and/or grants.

My school charges $500-800/class including books. However, also factor in housing and it significantly raises the price.

My last year's charge for housing was like $2300.

So really, it isn't that bad.

Good luck in your classes.

Yeah, I know it's not as expensive as some. I've done the whole traditional college thing for my Associates. Now with my Wife currently going to college and a 4yr. old son, the online thing is the way to go.
