Does anyone have experience attending ASU online to complete a BA? I've got about 80 credit hours from LSU but can't complete my degree in person given the amount of hours I work per week. I'm looking for a very good brick and mortar school with a good reputation and liberal arts degrees.

Any personal experience would be more than welcome.

    Back in 94 when I graduated highschool I remember it being one of the easiest brick and morter schools to get in to. I think the ACT score was 18 back then. Most schools I was looking at required 21+.

    It's the only thing I know about the school.

    Any particular reason you chose ASU?

    Louisiana participates in the Southern Regional Academic Common Market. Long story short, if you live in a participating state (there are 16 with some restrictions), you can go to any school in that market and pay in-state tuition if your home state does not offer that program. So for something like History, you probably won't qualify because every state has a college with a History major, but you will be able to find other programs.

    Go here and choose your home state and search for programs. Pretty self-explanatory after that. You can select online programs only.

    The results aren't a complete list of every major the states offer, just the ones where you qualify for in-state tuition based on the home state you chose earlier. Should give you a good starting point for comparison.

    Cool, good deal. I was also going to suggest Penn State University. They have a first rate program and make no differentiation on the degree or transcript between regular matriculated students and online.

    However, since you are good to go at ASU, don't worry about it. icon_smile.gificon_wink.gif
    I usually hang out on 224.0.0.10 (FF02::A) and 224.0.0.5 (FF02::5) when I'm in a non-proprietary mood.

    Stay away from the women and parties! ASU makes easy seem like graduate-level calculus and Ph.D level physics all rolled up into one (from what I've read, anyway...seriously I wouldn't know personally.)

    Congratulations all the same though.

    He's doing it online from across the country, so luckily (or unluckily) he doesn't have to worry about that.
