Hey, everyone. Recently came across what I think is a good deal and wanted to share.

Fayetteville State University in NC has a respectable number of math courses at a very affordable rate of $154.17 per credit (that's including fees). That's community college level prices--in fact, even better than the community colleges in my state. There is a catch, however; that price is if you are enrolled in a degree program through them. I don't know if you'd consider it unethical to apply for a math major there only to take a few courses and then "drop out" so you could use the courses you took to get a math degree through TESU, but it's an option.

If you don't want to do that, even at full price they are still quite affordable at $258.34 per credit. Obviously that's not Luna Community College level prices, but it's not easy to find RA math credits in courses like Complex Variables, Number Theory, Real Analysis, Probability Theory, Mathematical Statistics, Topology, PDEs, two semesters of Abstract Algebra, etc. for potentially $462.27. (Or $274.77 if you live in North Carolina!). Looks to me like you could build a very respectable math BA at TESU at a very respectable price thanks to Fayetteville State.

Hopefully this helps a math major or two out there. There are some choices for UD/UL math courses (UND, UIUC, LSU, SNHU, etc.) but not too many compared to other subjects, and they tend to be a bit pricey by most of our standards, I think it's fair to say. In fact, from what I see FSU's online math major itself is very attractive for the right person, i.e. someone who isn't in a rush (very few UD math courses are offered on the 8-week half-semester system), and someone who likes a pretty extensive number of required electives courses (in math, computer science, and natural science) as part of their degree.
