The Cal State college system is just starting to offer online degrees. At $500 to $700 PER UNIT. That's going to be $1,800 for a single history class for example, and doesn't including course materials and other mandatory fees. I expect another accredited college to offer units at a fraction of this amount, and only suckers will attend the government school. In fact having a government school degree will signal the person is not knowledgeable about the world around them, and thus are not desirable as employees.
