The University of Colorado is creating a new online education system that will offer bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for a flat $15,000 cost.

In a decision by the Board of Regents Wednesday, $20 million was approved to allow the university to move forward with the creation of the proposed project.

Set to launch in 2022, the program targets rural students and those with blue collar jobs for whom access to CU might otherwise be limited. The regent behind the proposal, Steve Ludwig, said there’s an urgent need for this kind of education.
