I'm new here and it was wonderful finding a whole lot of information for cheap education and also earning credits towards completing any degree basically from the BIG 3. I'm in a situation where I have a B.Sc in Psychology already but it's not from any of the schools in the United States. I have been here for for years now, couldn't afford to take classes for my Masters when I got here, all the option I had was survival, meaning I had to get out there and do what's always right and acceptable to make a living. It has never been easy but it has not gotten worse, I am an educationally oriented individual and I planned on getting back on track fast even if it's means burying myself in manageable debt, which I have little to none up to this day.
Right now, I'm ready to start earning credits towards a new Bachelors from an accredited school in the United States, as my previous B.Sc rarely gets acceptable now because UT at Arlington denied my admission last fall, so my plan is get one from the start using the resources shared on here and putting in a strong application into any Grad School for a Masters degree. I have looked at Sanantone's and JSD's BA in Psychology Path and also looked at the list of courses for a BA in Psychology at TESU, I know what's required of me, but since I am still very much at shock on how this is possible, its basically elating and I have been going through this forum for days, hardly closing the browser and have a lot of thread opened in different tabs. At this point it is overwhelming and I need help.
I am looking for anyone who would spare a little bit of time and work with me in structuring a road map or pathways to earning the BA in Psychology from TESU from just testing out. Here's the list of TESU courses needed to earn the 120 credits needed:

III. Electives 21
The following TECEP® exam, DANTES DSST exam or Guided Study course may be used as an elective in the psychology area of study.
SOS-305-DE Drug and Alcohol Abuse (3 credits)
SOS-304-GS Drugs and Society (3 credits)
Note 2: SOS-304-GS Drugs and Society DUPLICATES SOS-305-DE Drug and Alcohol Abuse.
So, where and how I need help is what recommended sources for each of this courses or resources to earn this credits, so I can start build my road map and also go on ahead to start testing out. Remember, I wouldn't want to attend a community college, except if recommended and if it would help me with Gov't loans or grants, but I would really need very few credits there as I have limited time to do anything else other than to go out there and earning a living so survival bills reponsibility can be met.
If any one has a question, I would be happy to work with them, I am looking forward to hearing from JSD and Sonantone, I thought it would be better building my roadmap rather than using JSD's.
Thank you for the anticipated help guys, Shine.
