Hi folks, I am about 70% done with my degree in Aviation at UVU ( Yes, I know an Aviation Degree, but I truly cannot see myself doing anything else in life besides aviation, In case of the worst scenario, I have always thought about aviation management or Sim Instructing) . I have been finishing it online. Its getting a little expensive, considering I am trying to pay off my massive loans for flight school, and trying to save up for a future wedding. Just wondering if any other fellow guys know any affordable online degree programs that will honor alot of transfer credits and is relatively affordable? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

You can't lose your medical or be furloughed? There is probably a 100% chance you won't listen but I think you are making a mistake.

Taking an overall view on it you're probably right, but at this point given how much the OP has invested his quickest way to check the box is probably finishing the Aviation degree.

To the OP, check out Thomas Edison State College.

He said he loved aviation. There are other aviation jobs besides being a pilot (2 of which he mentioned) that should he lose his medical an aviation degree could be beneficial. Especially with 70% of it already completed.

If an aviation degree is the fastest and cheapest with credit for your ratings then that is what I suggest. But then work on an MBA to make you marketable if you can't fly. TESC is probably the cheapest way. If you're prior mil look into Liberty, they have a great discount.

If you are 70% done I would just stick with UVU.
