Cost of Online Education

Providing quality online education requires resources, such as well-trained and supported faculty members, instructional designers, media producers, assessment staff, administrative personnel, and technical facilities, and these resources have costs. One of the goals of the SUS 2025 Strategic Plan for Online Education was to determine the costs of online education campus-by-campus, and the Cost of Online Education report, presented to the Board of Governors in October 2016, documents these costs and includes strategies that have the potential to reduce costs in the future.
