University of the People

This is a tuition free, non-profit university that is entirely online. They provide two degree programs:

  1. Business Administration
  2. Computer Science

It is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) Accrediting Commission is a U.S.-based, private, non-profit organization that operates as a national accreditor of distance education institutions.

The only things they charge for are application processing fee, based on location of the student, and an exam fee.  No books are required to be bought–all information is open resources which are free.

I’m tempted to see about switching but working a University to where I only pay online fees and for textbooks is iffy  whether or not it is worth the change.

P.S. Yes, I am a huge advocate of education for all people everywhere, period.
