Biology Everywhere: UC-Boulder/Coursera: $49/month and $80/credit hour
#1
UC Boulder and Coursera have a specialization called Biology Everywhere that starts today.  It is composed of four courses.  The courses can be taken for free on Coursera.  However, the certificate track is $49 per month.  In addition, UC Boulder will award three graduate credit hours for completion of an additional honor's track.  These credits cost $80 per credit hour or $240.  I am not sure what the grad. credit prefix is.  Here are some links and the email that I received from the creator of the program: Dr. Melanie Peffer:

"If you want to audit the course it's free - but you won't have access to the honors track assessments. Otherwise it's $49/month to have access to the full specialization and get a certificate at the end that you can display on your LinkedIn. Coursera does have financial aid available as well. For graduate credit, it's $80/credit (or $240 for all three credits that you would earn for completing the whole specialization)."

It sounds like a good deal but I don't know where to use the graduate credits... too bad they're not giving any undergraduate credits.

Well, if the prefix is BIO, then it is possible to use the grad. credits as undergraduate upper level credits. At least that is how TESU took them when I attended.

Can you use any Graduated credits as a UL credit or is a special rule for it?

That's a good price for Upper Level credit at TESU. Much better than what they charge for even 1 credit. This can be applied to a BALS.

I'm taking this course right now the only real issue I'm having is waiting for other people to finish their assignments so they can review my assignments and I can review theirs. It's a terrible waiting game lol.
