How much does it cost to get an online associate's degree as a pharmacy technician?

Usually it wont really matter what kind of associates degree you get. There are generally a few different programs that you will be able to choose from to obtain an associates degree. The classes will generally be a little different, but the overall cost will be the same. I am going for associates in business, and it is going to cost me a total of $16,000 dollars which is absolutely ridiculous. I am however cutting out about a year of schooling. (online is much faster pace, but those credit hours rack up very fast)
