"Because they can" is not an explanation for why, it's merely stating "they are allowed to". I know the real reason is "so they can get more money" I just wish they would at LEAST have the decency to make some bullshit up like "to offset revenue lost to on-campus vendors" or some shit.
I attend University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. For every class I take online I have to pay $300 on top of the already ridiculously high tuition. I have no idea why; there's no additional resources they're using, and they don't have to use any classrooms for this. It should be a $300 DISCOUNT.
