Yeah ASU CEP is almost double! I met with an advisor at ASU regarding the cost and basically the:
Traditional 4 year
At ASU all cost about the same
The advisor told me something about the "rank" of ASU as a Nursing school and that was part of the reason it costs so much. She may have a good point but if we are doing the nursing portion at a Maricopa CC and the online courses at the University does "rank" really matter?
If this helps, I took all the AHI and CU classes through rio salado because they have shorter sessions so you can get them all done faster. I turned in my app for Maricopa waitlist a few weeks ago and from what the advisor told me at Mesa CC there are A LOT of people wanting to do the CEP so girls get your apps in ASAP.
Competing for a spot at ASU is like trying to win the lottery, they give students that have taken more credits at the college a better shot anyway, WHATEVER.
After all this I still don't know if I want to do ASU or NAU CEP but i just decided to take courses for both in case my gpa isn't high enough for ASU. I'd like to find out how the online bsn classes are at ASU versus NAU. Anyone know this?
I'll let you guys know how the info session goes....
Lovebug4002, you need to go to the school and talk to someone asap. My transcript was in the "clouds" at Gateway and when I went there to talk to them it miraculously appeared lol
