Show Notes:

This episode we discuss SUU's plans to lower tuition costs for online-only students in an effort to make an education more accessible.

Featured Quotes:

The hypothetical full-time, face-to-face student shows up, it takes 120 credits to graduate, if that student takes 15 credits per semester over four years, that student is going to end up paying $29,000 tuition and fees, we’re not counting inflation, it’s just $29,000 to get a bachelor’s degree. Then, if we take the hypothetical average online student, this is a student who is taking 7 credits because that’s all she can take, she’s going to take 17 semesters to finish from start to finish. And at $2,500 per semester, she’s going to end up paying $43,000.

The driving motive [for SUU] is access and affordability, helping people move up. And as we have been talking about online, we’ve discovered that there are some challenges for online students to get in and get a degree, and one of those is cost.
