  • Hot Diggity Done!!! BS-Cybersecurity

    I got an electronic copy of my official transcript today noting my Bachelors was conferred yesterday (August 31. 2016).

    I found this forum in 2014 while researching CLEPs. From there I found COSC and realized it would be a great fit for me. I read a lot of posts here and started knocking out credits from TEEX, Straighterline, ALEKS, and CC credits. Knocking out those credits got me motivated and confident to enroll at COSC and finish my degree.

    Without degreeforum and its fantastic members I wouldn't have known about these options and would not have been able to complete my degree anytime soon.

    For anyone interested in the specifics of my journey you can click the link to my progress thread in my signature.

    Thanks again to everyone who helped and encouraged me along this journey.
