University of Alabama - Online Degree Completion (45 ACE credits, $375 per credit)
#1
The University of Alabama's continuing education department accepts max 45 ACE credits, total 90 transfer credits out of 120.
I just confirmed this with their admissions.

They offer many online undergraduate degree programs:

Tution fee is $375 per credit:

So once  you successfully transfer 45 ACE credits and 45 RA credits, you'll be able to get their degree for $11,250 ($375 x 30).


The University of Alabama has a great reputation:

Could still be a good choice for someone who happens to want one of those degrees that isn't offered by the Big 3.

If one lives in the South, then this school will be thought of differently than the perspective of being in California or New England.

You articulated my point better than I did.

UT at Austin, UC Berkley, UVA, UW at Madison, etc. are public schools that have a national reputation for the quality of their educational offerings.

What do I know about Alabama the state? Well, on a walking tour of NOLA, when the guide was talking about their problems, he said that their saying was, "Well, we're better off than Alabama." Or something like that. Not what I call a resounding accolade.

I'm not sure why people are trashing University of Alabama on this forum? If I'm not mistaken the Business school from the University of Alabama is AACSB accredited. I don't believe that any of the "big three" have that accreditation. Sure it may not be a top tier school but it may suit the needs for some members of this forum. 
Their tuition is even lower then TESU.

Let me clarify for you. I am not bad mouthing U of Alabama at all. I'm saying in different parts of the country, different schools are thought of in different ways. In the South, U of Alabama is well thought of.

That is because TESU tuition is overpriced. This is why we encourage people to only take the cornerstone and capstone from there and transfer in everything else. That is really the big value of TESU and the other other Big 3 schools. It certainly isn't its name recognition or cheap tuition. Smile

I suppose that's true. I am a Southerner, and admit to being at least slightly biased against Cali or Yankee schools. Certainly if, on a full ride, I had to choose between attending Bama or Berkeley, I'd choose Bama.
