I called and got information about ASU's 2nd degree program for the next cycle, but I was shocked to find out how much it cost! There are nearly $20,000 in fees - on top of tuiton! That's alot for a 12 month program. I thought GCU was expensive - however with my GPA scholarship, the BSN program should be around $24,000. With me paying for school out of pocket (I refuse to take out a loan), GCU is better suited for my needs. I can spead the payments out longer and I would save approximately $11,000.
I definitely see your point, but GCU is also a five semester program that requires additional prerequisites. While the tuition is high, it was nothing compared to the lost earning potential (for me) of being in a full time program for two years (not to mention the value of the experience I could gain in that time or the benefits of attending such a highly ranked program). I know everyone's needs are different, and if you can accomplish your goals through a different path with little to no debt, that's wonderful! Good luck to you!
I hope so! Letters go out this week, so I should know soon. It would be nice to know someone else who applied, but ASU didn't not advertise it very much. (It's still not even on the website.) It's a little crazy not knowing if I'm in with classes starting in just 6 weeks. I'm excited to find out though! =)
I'm SO relieved - I really want to do an accelerated post-bachelor's program, to save $ and time, but I support a family of four and wasn't sure how we were going to up and move to Flagstaff for at least a year.
I should be busy for the next few hours researching the program - Thanks for posting!
