I am learning these waters, and I would suggest the opposite, for those who are following along. Research these things very strongly; many do not automagically turn into credit. And, graduate programs appear to be more picky about how many credits and what kind might transfer.

I started to knock out several cheap credits in order to tick the '+ graduate hours' box, but then wasn't comfortable discussing what I was doing in the interviews.

Financial aid is available for graduate credits? From MITx? Would you care to expound on this?

Looks like they very recently updated the financial assistance policy on their website. I saw before that it was available for some of the micromasters that I was interested in.

https://support.edx.org/hc/en-us/article...do-I-apply-

"Financial assistance is not available for Professional Education courses and some MicroMasters courses. These courses do not appear in the list in the financial assistance application. "

They probably got too many "sob stories"

Have you noticed any courses that aren't eligible for financial aid? The Supply Chain Management from MIT and Business Analytics from Columbia are still working on my end. I doubt there was any change in which courses are eligible for financial aid. The change in policy was probably to cover the new Micromasters coming out this Fall.

Any change in financial aid policy to reduce fraud would require a fundamental reworking of the financial aid application process. Roughly 80% of those who receive financial aid are outside the United States. A substantial portion of those are Indians, a country not known for his integrity when it comes to academics.

I've been browsing the edx site and have noticed a few very interesting things:

The MITx statistics/data science micromasters can be used towards a Doctoral program at MIT(I'm not saying it will be easy to get into but that is quite an opportunity)
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/mitx-st...ta-science

RIT seems very happy to accept many of the different micromasters credentials(even the ones offered from different schools) towards a MS in Professional Studies:
"The professional studies program is specifically designed to assist professionals and students to create a customized plan of study comprised of two or three areas tailored to their educational or career objectives."

Just a few of the MMs they accept are:
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/ucsandi...structures
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/design-thinking
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/mitx-st...ta-science
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/mitx-su...management
https://www.edx.org/micromasters/princip...ufacturing

These count for 9-12(each) of the 33 credits in that program

The MS program itself costs:$1081 per credit hour

Is comprised of: http://www.rit.edu/ritonline/program/PROFST-MS

So in "theory" one could pursue 2-3 of the MMs that interest them(and are applicable to that program)  for a cost of around $2000-$4500, have those apply to all the concentration courses in the MS, then only have context and trends and the capstone left to do at RIT for a cost of around $6600 bringing the total to around $10,000.

Seems like a pretty flexible and relatively affordable degree. It's good to have options.

I may have been mistaken about them taking away financial assistance for some of the programs. I don't actually remember now which ones I was looking at that did or didn't list that option before.
