Think the cost of post-graduate studies is too high? Then you'll be pleased to learn about a new initiative at Georgia Tech.

As one of the nation's top engineering schools, Atlanta-based Georgia Tech will begin offering a master's degree in computer science through massive open online courses (MOOCs) in 2014.

The total cost for the online credited curriculum will be $6,600. On campus, that same degree would cost $45,000, according to The New York Times!

Now, not everyone is suited for online studying. But if it is for you, think of the money you could save!

I've long been excited about Gov. Rick Perry's challenge to allow the Texas university system to deliver a standard four-year degree for a total cost of $10,000.

The Texas Tribune  reports that the first degree available for $10,000 is in information technology. Four-year degrees in business administration and organizational leadership are next on tap in the Lone Star State.
