School is cool, kids!

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

So I have had a bit of a blogging drought. It happens.

So here I will announce my return to school. Well, kind of…

Starting June 1, 2009, I will be “attending” Western Governer’s University and earning a bachelor’s degree in Information Technology (emphais, if any to be determined later).  It is an accreditted, online school that truly is self-paced (within reason).  Plus it is pretty cheap and I get a discount through my employer.

Tuition is just under $3,000 per 6-month semester, plus a library fee ($45) and depending on the program, more fees as needed.  IT has no extra fees except the library fee.  And the semesters are 6 months, not 4ish and you can take an many classes as you can… if you finish one, you can start another.  If you can put the time into it, the value is actually pretty dang good.  It is online though, and not everyone can learn independently.

Based on my transfered credits, they estimate it should take me 18 months to 2.5 years.  I am going for 18 months or less, BABY!
