    I don't see a capstone, but a lot of these courses are going to be hard to find elsewhere anyway. I see that TESU has also added a couple of new healthcare programs in partnership with Rutgers.

      I wonder if they are basing it off of certs. LPI that is listed with the Linux requirement is a certification organization. It looks similiar to a WGU program, so maybe the Intro courses are code words for the Microsoft MTA exams.

      I see a lot of options for someone with certs to use PLA. CCNA for routing and switching. CEH for Offensive Security. CHFI for Forensics. MCSA for Windows. CCNA:Sec for Firewalls. CCNA:Wireless or the other wireless cert for Wireless. SSCP, CISSP, CASP, etc for defensive security. MTAs and/or CompTIAs for Intro. Cloud+ for Cloud computing.

      The Ethical Hacking CBE form CSU Global should match up with Offensive Security and the Cloud and Big data one for Cloud computing. Not sure if Sophia Project Management would work for IT project management.

      Also seem to be a lot of overlap between the requirements and those for the MS IT so possible dual degree here too.

      I've been waiting for this to show up. Looks like I would need at least 30 credits. Wouldn't switch now , but could be an option for a 2nd degree. More technical than BSBA:CIS and could use the help with GPA and writing for grad school.

        This would be a very expensive degree to get through TESU, I think you'd be better off at WGU, or APU.

            It would be a little more expensive than APUS. Anyone choosing to take a lot of courses at TESU would choose the Comprehensive Tuition Plan. Since APUS caps non-traditional credits, it might end up being cheaper at TESU. Does WGU have a cybersecurity degree at the undergraduate level?

              WGU has a BSIT in Security.

              I was not thinking of the Comprehensive plan. But I was thinking that there are probably a lot of other options to get this type of degree less expensively than TESU. I just threw 2 out there. But really, I think a degree and then a cert in Cybersecurity, or a masters would probably be a better deal than the whole BS degree from TESU. Just a thought.

                This looks like a great degree! If there are a lot of alternative credit methods for it I would definitely consider switching from current path to BSBA CIS.

                  If you read the entire post from start to finish, you will see that this is not a degree that has an inexpensive route.

                    Yea I did see that :/
                    Who knows though. Maybe in the future some ace/nccrs options may present themselves for this degree option.

                      Comparing this to the COSC Cybersecurity and JTP's experience with the program, COSC may be the cheaper option. Tuition is less and it depends what they require for PLA assessment.

                        For the COSC CyberSecurity, it may look good on paper and cost, but if you're doing a PLA, it maybe more than the TESU.

                        The pricing of the PLA for COSC is $320-$400/course if I recall correctly; so, if you need a few courses, it's going to be expensive.

                          COSC might be cheaper if they allow for more free electives. I haven't looked at the degree in a while. COSC charges $377 per credit hour for non-residents. That's $11,310 for 30 credits not including the semester fees. TESU is $9,352 per year for up to 36 credits.

                            I was able to use some CC courses for a couple of the lower level reqs, applied and got the PLA scholarship, and utilized the following "non-traditional" options:

                            TEEX Cybersecurity for IT Professionals -- ITE 145: Fundamentals of Information Systems Security
                            CLEP Information systems and computer apps -- ITE 102: Introduction to Computer Science
                            DSST Fundamentals of Cybersecurity -- CSS346: Access Controls, Authentication and PKI
                            CompTIA Security+ -- CSS 435: Fundamentals of Network Security
                            ECC Certified Ethical Hacker -- CSS 437: Hacker Techniques, Tools and Incident Handling
                            ECC Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator -- CSS 436: System Forensics, Investigations and Response

                            Now I had my company at the time pay for the CEH and CHFI credentials and then I paid the $300 to have them evaluated for credit. Anyone interested in the future will not have to pay that assessment fee again...you're welcome!

                              With the recent update to OSS, the program can now be selected as an evaluation. Some surprises like DSST MIS filled the IT Project Management requirement, difference between Tech Writing and Tech Comm, more detail on the Homeland Security option. It doesn't fit my needs. The only way I would consider it at this point is if I delay grade school for a while. Even then it still looks very expensive.
