  TESU BA in history, poli sci or double major?
Posted by: Ellecarlson - 15 minutes ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

I would love input and help on if any of these classes can be taken elsewhere and transferred or tested out of. I'm also unsure if its a better idea to get a degree in political science or history or what the requirements are to double major. As it stands when I toggle between the two it says 14 credits are needed for a history degree or 26 for a poli-sci. I'm not even sure what I'm doing with the degree yet, but I went to school for so long and finally need to decide on something. 


These are the classes it says I still need for a History BA:  
1 credit in Information literacy
TES 100
3 credits non western history
3 credits historical methods
6 credits area of study electives at 300/400 level
3 credit liberal arts capstone
(This adds up to 16 credits but on the evaluation page it says 14 credits needed so I'm not sure where that comes into play)

These are the classes it says I still need for a Political Science BA:
1 credit in information literacy
TES 100
3 credits American Gov't upper level
3 credits Theory/Process upper level
3 credits comparative gov't upper level
3 credits research methods
12 credits Area of study elective
3 credits liberal arts capstone




Below is a list of classes that I've transferred to TESU and what they're listed as by TESU.

  Hybrid Ed.D, No Dissertation
Posted by: sanantone - 1 hour ago - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - No Replies

This would more appropriately be called a blended program because students have class on campus every other Saturday and occasionally on Thursdays. The program requires no dissertation, capstone, or major project.

  Texas' Rationale for Requiring Face-to-Face Courses for CPA
Posted by: sanantone - 2 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (2)

I'm not persuaded.

Quote:Thank you for your email concerning the Board’s rule on the 15 semester hours of upper level accounting required in a traditional classroom format.  It has been the Board’s position that a great deal of learning occurs during spontaneous classroom discussions.  Additionally, learning continues to occur after class has ended as students and instructors look deeper into the topics that were discussed which may even carryover into the next class meeting after the students and instructor have done further research.    The Board periodically considers the acceptability of accounting courses in a distance learning format.  While it recognizes the online format, it is the Board’s opinion that there is added value in the traditional classroom accounting courses that may not be present in distance learning courses.  Many Board members who were also university accounting instructors presented information and made valid arguments that some accounting courses were better suited to be offered in a traditional classroom format, than other courses, due to the material and learning objectives.  However, the Board did not construct the rule in such a way as to identify the courses that could be taken in a distance learning format.  This was left to each university. The research that has been done indicates that students who take all online courses don’t fare as well on the CPA exam as students in traditional classrooms.

  TESU Does Accept Graduate Credits Toward Undergraduate Degrees
Posted by: sanantone - 2 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

From the registrar:                       

Quote:Thomas Edison State University will accept a maximum of 30 SH of credit from an accredited graduate program toward the requirements of a baccalaureate or associate degree.  However, please be advised that many graduate programs will not accept graduate credits toward their graduate degrees if those credits were applied to an undergraduate degree.   [P]If you expect to apply the graduate credits toward a graduate degree, you should consult the graduate school you plan to attend before applying these credits toward your Thomas Edison State University degree.

  To finish BA - school recommendations (not TESU, COSC, or EC)
Posted by: kevinmane - 3 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (4)

I'm asking this for a friend (no, seriously lol).

He thrives in structure, but not when it's a free-for-all independent study "do at your own pace" kind of plan. So doing random study.com or Straighterline-type courses are out.

He wants to get his BA. He has 87 transferable college credits (none are upper level) that he can swing to different schools.

Before recommending that he go to Amberton, I wanted to know if anybody else knew of a cheaper online traditional BA school? He does not qualify for any type of financial aid.

Reason I was going to recommend Amberton:

-no proctored exams
-semesters are 10 weeks each
-reasonably priced (about 265$/credit) 
-just do your homework timely and well = get a passing grade, move on to the next course
-no capstone or thesis
-accepts up to 87 credits from all sources (community college, CLEPs, etc.) - which he has - so he'd only be about 11-12 courses away from getting it.

Anybody else know of some BA-offering colleges that might be cheapish and structured like a traditional online college that is similar in Amberton's pros?

  Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi there, 

I am getting started on my journey after years of wasting time. 

I have a few credits from my community college I would like to bring along with me, not a lot. 

I plan on using straighterline to gain my associates degree from Thomas Edison. 

However, I do not know where I stand. I contacted TESC and they said I need to apply and be accepted (pay the fee) for them to review my credits to see where I stand and what courses I need, even if I am using straighterline. I contacted Straighterline and they said I need to contact TESC and go by what they say even though my credits will be with them. 

My question is, if I enroll and not take classes with TESC, what happens to my enrollment? 

How long will I be enrolled, long enough to graduate and not have to re-enroll when its time to transfer my straighterline credits? 

If I was to say screw the 15 or so credits I have, how long would it take me to get my associates from scratch using Straighterline? 

What's the best/easiest major to do using this SL and TESC technique?

  BA General Management Help
Posted by: darthweezy - 8 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (7)

Hey all, my wife has seen how much work I've been doing towards my degree and it's inspired her to go back and finish hers.  She has a lot less to work towards than I started with so I'm thinking realistically she can finish before I do.  She is a little torn between a BA General Management or a BSBA General Management.  I've attached the plan I've started working on for her to get the BA but wasn't sure where to source the upper level classes.  The Free Electives I just haven't filled in yet.  

If anyone has an up to date BSBA GM and feels like plugging her classes in i'd appreciate it.  Also if anyone can point me where to look for the BA GM upper levels I'd appreciate that as well!  The BA GM plans I found look to be from 2016 and I couldn't find some of those classes offered anymore.
