From time to time I think about trying to transfer overseas with FedEx, e.g. to the UK or Australia - and between the two, Australia seems smarter given the cost of living and current exchange rate. Today, with this in my mind, I looked up the Anglican theological colleges in Australia and ran across this:
The Melbourne College of Divinity, in a joint program of Trinity College Theological School, University of Melboune and the United Faculty of Theology, offers an online Master of Divinity degree. A total of 270 points (18 semester units) is required for the degree, and the Graduate Coursework fee for 2007 is $850 per 15-point semester units.
Double-check my math:
270 points / 15-point semester units = 18 semester units
18 semester units at $850/unit = $15,300 AUD
According to XE.com, $15,300 AUD = under $12,000 USD
This has to be the cheapest reputable MDiv program I've seen.

The Melbourne College of Divinity is now the University of Divinity. (Apologies for all of the broken links above as a result.) The University of Divinity / University of Melbourne's Trinity College still offers the MDiv online, but there are now different fees for overseas students:
Total overseas MDiv cost is currently $38,376 AUD = $30,078 USD.
