So I've been attending an online school for the past year. AS in IT, maybe continuing on for a BA. It's brick/mortar and is locally and nationally accredited with degrees available at the Master's level. A friend of mine got her Master's in Nursing there after attending a brick/mortar school and is making a lot of money now, but I'm a little nervous. I recognized going into it that the tuition was quite high. The cost of an associate's degree is going to end up being around 30K. That's high, very high when compared to a 10-15k cost at a local community/state college. The curriculum and teaching is merely adequate, and sometimes I'm left feeling a little under-taught. I'm a good student, have a 3.6 GPA. I'm thinking about transferring, but only a handful of my courses are eligible, about half.
My question is, should I saddle myself with what will be an essential $7500 (15K total, 7500 = estimated half the value of my transferred credits) dollar loan with nothing to show for it simply to move schools? Or should I stick it out and get my associate's degree, and move to another school afterwards? I may end up having to do portions of my degree again anyway?
