The ranking gurus over at GetEducated.com just named
Northern Arizona University’s online Hotel & Restaurant Management (HRM) degree as a “Best Buy” among affordable online degrees in management.
They ranked our HRM degree program #26 in the nation and
tops in Arizona.
OK, we love winning awards and
it’s always nice to be named the "best".
. . but let’s just clear something up right now.
Not one NAU-Extended Campuses student pays $42,744 in
tuition for their HRM bachelor’s degree.
Zero. None. Zilch.
That huge tuition figured was calculated based on our credit
hour costs ($345/hour, the lowest in the state) times the 120 credits for a
bachelor’s degree, plus eight semesters of fees.
Well, at NAU-Extended Campuses, we cap our tuition for
full-time students at $3,353 a semester. So eight semesters at five classes a
semester (or 120 credit hours) really equals $26,824.
That’s a lot lower.
Now, factor in this: With 2NAU and other transfer
programs, we’ve actually cut the cost of a four-year bachelor’s degree to
Where would that more realistic total put us on
GetEducated’s ranking chart?
