Ashford universtiy- with military scholarship it ends up being $750/class, but classes are 5 weeks each, you take 1 at a time.
American Public University- Also $750/class, classes are 8 weeks and you take 2 at a time.

that's what UOP costs too... i think most online "for profit" universities charge about that..

OP, i'd look into community college maybe?

and i think the site for that, is militaryonesource.com or something like that.. they should be able to give you a little more info about what it covers and such.
