    Well that's a buzzkill. I thought the point of those school is to help you work something out.

    The point of them is that they are colleges with their own policies and procedures. It's not to give you credit for everything you might have taken in your life. But, if you want, you can always PLA courses. That would be a good plan, especially if you have a lot of UL credits from an NA school that you want to bring in.

    This is where my other credits are from, are they also no good? This is quite discouraging.

    EDIT: Sorry for dramatic reaction. I read the actual page and it is a "regional body" so At least my English 101 is still legit.

    MSJC is RA, so you're good there.

    This is WASC, regional accreditation. That's good, the big 3 accept regional accreditation
    New Goal: BS IT-Sec, WGU (47/123 CUs complete) 2/1 start
    BA Psychology, Thomas Edison State, 2016
    AA Sociology, community college, 2015

    BA completed using community college, Competency-Based Education (via Patten University - would not recommend), Study.com, Coopersmith Career Consulting (via Tor College Credits), TESU courses, and a handful of free ACE-recommended credits.

    See the full, long path to my degree!

    Your MSJC credits are good, and really those Full Sail credits are not a huge deal. You can easily fulfill English Composition I and II with either the CLEP College Composition (one test for all 6 credits) or with Straighterline English Comp I and II. The history class can be replaced with Shmoop Modern European History for 3 credits. Don't let yourself get sidetracked.

    Brilliant! Thank you!

    Now I am going to do the free ethics course and then apply for the Study Scholarship. <3

    They are/were technically a trade school not a college; granted they charge like they are an ivy league university but that is another story

    You can also take the English Comp I & II TECEP's (I took II, and I'm certainly glad I didn't spend the time to take the SL course).
