Florida International University Online Degree ($10k! ACE accepted)
#1
Florida International University accepts ACE credits from Straighterline and Saylor Academy!

https://transfer.fiu.edu/transfer-101/ac...d-courses/

It could be that they'll accept study.com credits too. They said they'll accept ACE credit course that comes with a proctored final exam.

They offer many online degree programs:

Their admissions confirmed that they accept max 90 transfer credits. They don't limit the number of ACE credits you can transfer in.

Their out-of-state tuition fee is only $345 per credit. So once you successfully transfer in 90 credits, you can get their online degree for $10,350 (30 x 345).


Florida International University ranks among top 200 universities in US:

Hmm.. that almost makes them close to the "big 3", and very, very close to COSC, just 30-50% more depending on which big 3 and how frugal you are shooting for

Yes, but they're more prestigious than any of big 3. In fact, they have the 6th largest facilities among US universities.

Their ACE credit requirement isn't that simple though. You must pass proctored finals with good grades.

One big challenge is to find enough alternative credits that FIU will accept into their program.

iirc the state of Florida has been offering 10k degree programs for afew years now.

https://www.floridatrend.com/article/171...ors-degree

just google 'florida 10k degree list', there's a list of programs. IF THOSE programs accept ACE/alternative credits, u would be able to push the cost below $10k

Ok. Honestly that's a good offer but it seems like they won't accept sophia learning credits and i bought a yearly. Don't know what to do? I have regionally accredited 46 computer engineering credits and have 10 k money and enrolled into Snhu. Also i have to complete my degree in a year. I really love the snhu but just don't know. Panic attacking!

Isn't it odd that schools like this and CUNY, for instance, mention Saylor specifically (and generally no other provider) on their non-college credit transfer pages. Is it the case that Saylor is just good at marketing themselves to colleges? Because while I haven't done one of their courses, they don't seem to have a great reputation here.

6th largest facilities in the US? Are we talking about football stadiums or research facilities? Where I live no one cares about FIU and most people have never heard of it. Same holds true for many universities. It all depends on your location if it's impressive.

I think that’s based on the fact that their campus is pretty much spread across Miami; so they do own quite a lot of real estate. 

Depending on the program, you either have heard of FIU and it’s prestigious, or there’s another Florida school that’s better so everyone talks about that one. 

I only wish their grad program costs were as nice as their undergrad.

Out of all the possible reasons to choose a school, the amount of real estate that they own doesn't seem like a particularly meaningful one

They're 6th largest because of the real estate they own? That could be all dorms. Absolutely meaningless. Where I live no one cares about Florida. It's thousands of miles away. If someone earned a degree from a school with big name recognition like USC that matters even though it's on the other side of the country. FIU isn't going to be a big deal to much of the country especially since their claim to fame is real estate holdings. I mean the University of Rochester is in my backyard, but they are an internationally renowned medical research facility. They brag about that not how much real estate they own or lease and trust me they're all over the place with medical offices. I go to their doctors because of the specializations they offer not because they own 100 buildings in a 10 square mile distance.
