  Confusing chat with TESU's admission
Posted by: romoh - 30 minutes ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (5)

Hey guys, 

Just had a chat with an admission advisor at TESU and she said that unless I am transferring from a regionally accredited 4-Year college, I can only transfer up to 90 credits. 

She said that from Study.com and StraighterLine combined, I can only transfer 90 cr. 

If this is true, this means that I can't rely only on Study.com and StraighterLine for the credits? 

Someone please elaborate and explain. I'm a newbie here.

  Send CLEP test score to ACE?
Posted by: SCYankee - 32 minutes ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

So I just received my transcript of the CLEPs I took while in the Army (2003). That's 18 credits (math, science, english comp) out of the way.

Now, when I take my next exam (principles of management), do I request (at the time of registration) the scores to be sent to ACE? Or is that something that happens automatically?

Basically, if I understand correctly, each CLEP and DSST exam I take will be recorded on my ACE transcript (along with any study.com courses, etc, right?). I would then use that transcript when applying to COSC, or any college.

But what do I need to do at or before test time (CLEP or DANTES) or when i take Study.com or SL courses, to make sure it's all recorded properly?

Thanks for your help.

  Practice Test Scores
Posted by: Mom23boys - 5 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

DS is taking the BIO CLEP this week. He just finished Honors Biology with an A. He went through the Modern States program for the Voucher. He applied for it on Saturday and we hope to get it by tomorrow, then schedule the exam for Friday.

He took 2 Practice Exams over the weekend and his scores were wildly different. He got an 89 on the official CLEP practice exam and a 55 on Peterson's 1. He is going to review the topics that he didn't do well on  and take another practice exam tomorrow. My question is, which one tends to be more accurate for Biology? He was blown away by the differences in the exams.

  DBA/AACSB/Online/Cheap... does this exist?
Posted by: tesu-acct-student - 6 hours ago - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - Replies (5)

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if there is a DBA for accounting, that is AACSB accredited, online (or low residency), and cheap. I've been looking around and haven't seen anything that fits all of those criteria. Doubt it exits but thought I'd ask here. Let me know what you think. Thanks.

I haven't seen this one before:


$327 per credit hour and/or $12.50 per CEU.

One thing that is very cool is that most full-time UW system students can take any or all of these classes for free with a tuition waiver.

Someone should register at the cheapest eligible UW campus and try to run the table.

  First Bachelor Milestone officially complete.
Posted by: ChilliDawg - Yesterday, 12:12 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (8)

I just wanted to make a quick post and say "Thank you" to everyone here.   My TESU BALS Diploma was sitting on my doorstep when I got home from dinner last night.  I am sure that I already made a thank you post back when I finished the Capstone a few months ago, but getting that diploma yesterday really made it feel "official".

I am very thankful for this forum, and especially thankful to the dedicated members here who are always answering questions and helping.

Two years ago, I had nothing more than a B&M transcript in my hand, and no clue how to transfer it, or make anything out of it.  Working full time in a Government I.T. job and having a busy family life,  I was not sure that I was ready to spend my evenings and weekends sitting at the local college, trying to finish a degree.  I was Googling for articles on credits, transfers, online degrees, etc.  I somehow stumbled across this forum.  I silently sat back and observed your posts and advice to others.  Then, I started asking questions.  Before long, I was applying at places like Pierpont and TESU, even Charter Oak.  Doing Academic Evals, and crunching numbers.  Searching for Straighterline Coupons, taking TEEX classes, Institutes Courses, registering for ACE Transcript Services, etc.. etc..  I even received the Study.Com Guardian scholarship.  All while DREADING the inevitable Capstone.   Here I sit, two years later with two Associates and a B.A.L.S under my belt.  All because I landed............RIGHT HERE on this forum.

Oddly enough, I am not satisfied. Although a Bachelor(any Bachelor) was my initial goal in order to check the proverbial Human Resources box, and I have now completed it, I am eager to forge on.  I am getting anxious that I am not taking a course, presently.  I think I have decided upon WGU's MSCSIA.  My employer has already approved it, and is eager to compensate.

I really believe this forum is underrated, but I sure am thankful for it.  I always looked forward to posting a completion thread, thanking you all for the help.  But, we will instead have to refer to it as a MILESTONE thread.  I am nowhere near complete.

  Current Return on Earning a College Degree
Posted by: sanantone - Yesterday, 10:39 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (3)

Due to rising costs, the return on earning a college degree has slightly ticked down to 14%. However, the gap between how much college graduates and high graduates earn remains much higher than it was 30 years ago. The average high school graduate earns $45,000. The average college graduate earns $78,000. Don't ask me how the New York Federal Reserve Bank got these numbers. LOL. If I had to guess the numbers for my state, I'd say that many college graduates could easily get to $60k after several years. A high school graduate would probably make $30k.

  HBX Becomes "Harvard Business School Online"
Posted by: Jonathan Whatley - Yesterday, 09:09 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

The online non-degree continuing education unit of Harvard Business School previously branded as HBX or Harvard Business X is rebranding to "Harvard Business School Online."

The School Online tells holders of HBX certificates, "your LinkedIn profile will automatically change to Harvard Business School Online (as long you chose the pre-set HBX credential when you originally added it to your profile). If you did not choose that option, you may manually update your LinkedIn profile and / or resume to reflect the new Harvard Business School Online name." Another FAQ: "Am I now an alum of Harvard Business School? No, if you've completed a course with HBX or Harvard Business School Online, you are a certificate holder, not a graduate nor an alumnus/alumnae."
