Attaining your college degree online has become a popular option for many people. A large number of people have not had a chance to attend a traditional college or university but seek the increased earning potential and career advancement that a Bachelor degree affords. Still others might have a degree in one discipline but would like to pursue something they now have an interest in. But just how much does getting an online degree cost? In this article I will answer some of your questions.

These days you can get a degree in virtually any subject or level you can think of. From bare bones liberal arts Bachelor Degrees to Masters in various disciplines including the MBA and ever Law Degrees and other PHd's, the only limit is how much time, effort and money you want to put in. While nationally recognized institutions still are respected for their pedigree, especially the Ivy League schools and other universities with well-known specializations, for many that don't need the prestige or expense of these institutions an online degree will serve just fine for their goals.

Bachelor Degrees

As the entry level standard, Bachelor Degrees are the first step in your pursuit of higher education and the earnings power that it brings. Popular online degree programs from such institutions as The University of Phoenix offer Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science Degrees in many subject areas. Fees for a full Bachelor's Degree in Communication for example which consists of 60 credits at $515/credit comes to $30,900.

For another well known and highly regarded option, Kaplan University offers a $336/credit fee for their BS in Communications which would run approximately $63,000 for the 180 credits they require. This compares favorably with a typical bricks and mortar education but allows the flexibility that only an online degree can offer. There are Online Bachelor Degrees that run from as little as $3000 to as much as $100,000 and more. It really all depends on what caliber of program you are willing to pay for and how much a famous ‘name' is to have on your resume.

Once you attain a Bachelors Degree you might consider a Masters in a subject in which you want to specialize. Masters Degrees are a cost effective way to boost your career and earnings power above what you could obtain with only a college degree. Although typical per credit costs tend to run higher in Online Masters Programs, the degree requirements are for fewer credits so the total cost may be less. As an example The University of Phoenix charges $625/credit hour for their Masters Programs compared to $110 less for the Bachelor's level.
