  Strayer Challenge Exam Prep
Posted by: GIGAGUY - 2 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

I see many threads about taking the Strayer challenge exams, but nobody mentions how they studied for them?  Is is just a matter of buying/reading the textbook? Any ideas?

I am only about 5 classes away from my BS, and 4 of them are available as challenge exams. They are all CIS, if that makes a difference.

TIA

  Getting an internship as a TESU student
Posted by: Meika - 5 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (1)

Hey guys! 
I'm currently 39 credits in (18 on the way, waiting on my eval). I never had a job in an office setting before and chose TESU (BSBA CIS) due to its low cost and my personal preference to stay out of the classroom. However, I'm slightly worried about how I'm gonna get a job. And one of the things I came up with is taking on an internship. Do you guys have any experience with that? If I can get it and how the employees will view my online degree at all? I'm trying to mostly test out the degree, so I basically don't even have GPA yet, as well as any sort of professor's recommendation. Please do tell about your experience or anything you know.

  Can anyone share a degree plan for Psychology at TESU?
Posted by: CollegeKid - Yesterday, 04:41 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (4)

I've looked around on the forum and I'm trying to find a degree plan for Psychology at TESU. Does anyone have one?

Also, I know there are some upcoming changes to the UL Psychology courses that TESU will be marking as LL after 12/31/17. But I can't find the thread that talked about that. Does anyone know what courses those are??

Thank you!!!!!

  Study.com's Personal Finance course - terrible!
Posted by: dfrecore - Yesterday, 02:46 PM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (10)

I just finished, and it was torture.  Very repetitive, but also didn't include things they should, or included things they shouldn't.  And it was like they took all of the things they wanted to teach, wrote them on a piece of paper, put them in a hat, and then pulled out 10 things and made a chapter out of it - there was zero flow to the course.  It was odd.  I took the DSST exam for this and thought it covered things you actually needed to know.

Then there's the whole "quiz" thing, which in no way reflects the material you're actually tested on.  The quizzes are totally useless.  The chapter exams were much more along the lines of the exam, so I'm really not sure why quizzes are required (they shouldn't be) but chapter tests aren't (and they should be).  Just a weird way to set up this course.

I have 5 more to take, and I sincerely hope they are better than this one.  A terrible introduction to the study.com universe if there ever was one!

  Associate Degrees at TESU
Posted by: rlw74 - Yesterday, 07:35 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (5)

So I'm curious, has anyone transferred an Associate's Degree from TESU to a four year B&M college? or from WVCC? How did that go?

I'm looking into options for my 8th grader who starts high school next year. She is in a couple of advanced classes at the school already and wants to work on an Associates concurrently with high school work. Here are the options we are considering:

1. Ideally, our plan right now is to enroll her in a program our high school has. She can take classes at a community college and get credit for both high school and college at the same time. However, they don't accept everyone into the program and there is a possibility she can't start until she is a junior.

2. If that doesn't work out, she has an opportunity to enroll part-time with the school (take a couple of classes, participate in extra-curricular opportunities etc) but take the rest of her coursework at home. They may accept alternates like SL or study.com but I have to check on that and make sure it would be approved.

3. She can take all her alternate credits in addition to her high school credits and possibly get an associates online. What I don't want to have happen though is her taking a lot of credits that don't transfer anywhere. Yes, she can get a Bachelors from TESU and do it all online. However, I really prefer she sit in a classroom and have that experience. Right now she doesn't have a degree in mind so I only want her to focus on Gen Ed courses anyway.

I'm assuming an Associates, while fine, will not guarantee those courses will be accepted elsewhere unless that school happens to accept credits from places like SL or study.com etc. I am looking into the option of CLEP exams too. CLEPs are more universally accepted but schools put limits on what they will accept. She won't get a full 60 credits that way.

Has anyone looked into other options for a similar situation?

Hi! I Need an Easy and Fast Gen Ed Elective from STUDY.COM. I would also like one from StraighterLine (I have extra time there) for insurance just in case I have problems with the transfer from Study.com. I need this to file for graduation by 1/1/2018. I'm also taking my capstone with Longenbach in November if anyone would like to give me any insight on him. I've enclosed my plan in the attachment below. Many thanks to this site and all who participate and help!

  MEd that's a good price, 1 year or less?
Posted by: Ideas - 10-18-2017, 06:38 AM - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - Replies (4)

I am looking to compare some MEd degrees, ones that don't need you to already be a licensed teacher. I'm kind of flexible about areas of study because I have a few interests, but don't want one focused on K-12.

I like competency based programs, because of the cost, and I like the pressure to work quickly. The only competency MEd I could find are the two that WGU offers. It is fine with me that they don't lead to licensure.

The main thing I dislike about WGU is they won't take grad transfer credits. I'd like to do as much as possible though VESi and similar programs to save money and time. I think the VESi credits will also be convenient.

I do like WGU's offering, but is there any MEd program that's cheaper in total than 2 terms at WGU?
