Exclamation TESU BSBA with foreign credits
Posted by: pgsatx - 6 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (2)

Hello everybody,

  1. Firstly, hats off to each and everyone in their journey for knowledge. Appreciate the responses that I have already received and the numerous templates available.
I moved to the united states around 2005 had a lot of adventure with my own work, went through life and now I have a regular 8-hour job and I like what I do, so far. I consider myself to be a creative person and feel that the time has come for me to think differently at work and in life in general. 
Thought of starting my master's degree in 2009 and visited a few institutions too. That was then, I am here now. 

This year I got serious and started my roadmap for which my starting point was getting my foreign 3-year degree evaluated. Note the following:
-I graduated in 2001 with a business degree
-that I was in possession of all the original marks statement for all three years
-that I never collected my degree or transcripts
-my three-year marks statement were enough, all this time. 

So the tedious task of digging up my transcript and degree began in early 2018 (Feb) from the foreign university. After much difficulty, I sent it all for evaluation to WES.
WES deemed my foreign degree to be equivalent to a three-year degree in the U.S awarding me a total of 90 credits.

I was under the impression that I could bridge the gap and secure some form of conditional admission in a masters program or at least get admitted to an undergraduate program and complete this formality. I am tired of phone calls, emails and transcript fees.

I am so glad all of this happened. I am not going to waste my time anymore. I could be very well studying and I already am. I found about the process and you all evening of Jul 17, did as much research as possible and am now ready to get some more help. 
  • I went through the beginner's guide and please don't hesitate to mention that to me again, should the need arise. 
  • Wiki link is broken.
  • Yes, I (according to WES) have 90 US equivalent credits and original documents.
     2. So that you all could better gauge
[*]I am looking at a fast track. So the order will be fast/easy/cheap (checked with my benefits provider and found that CLEP, SL, DSST expenses are all covered)

[*]Yes, at my new work location I am about 2 miles from the nearest CLEP testing site. Shouldn't take 5-8 minutes
[*]I have time to study in the evenings and could go test at a site as well. Online would also be an option as the benefits cover it. (if going online will help me knock tests out better if         you guys experienced it, I am all for it)
[*]I have $5400 set aside for this year. Idea is to finish off an undergraduate degree. Then like "Johnnie Walker" ...keep walking and visit with MBA
[*]So the order will be fast/easy/cheap

     3. What help or advice am I looking for?
  • I visited TESU website, talked to them and was advised to apply first
  • WES is going to send them my evaluation (course by course) and my certified transcript and degree from the previous institution
  • I need help understanding how do their bachelors to MBA program work (will it be conducive to use my existing credit in some form, fulfill missing credits and jump to an MBA OR
    complete my undergraduate degree go to a school of my choice? (Thinking of a live classroom setting for a few during my masters)-For the purpose of finishing the undergraduate program first. I compared most programs in TESU and have narrowed it down to BSBA CIS or BSBA MARKETING (don't know how closely previous credits will align with it but from the looks of it, it does to a large extent. (check the .xls file attached)-I want you guys to critique my plan, give me pointers so that when I talk to the advisor in a few days, I could contribute and drive the plan-I want to understand the what. I have received a lot of information in the last 3 days and I am ready to act. -I consider myself confident and understand that I can do it and this is the way I am going.Thank you all for paying attention. Attached is a draft of my degree planP

College Algebra
A&I Lit
American Government
Intro to Sociology
Ethics In America
Substance Abuse
Biology

Management Info Systems
Fundamentals of Cybersecurity 

And I would have to find some other Computer Science electives somewhere. Would this plan work? Does anyone know if the college will help you plan this out if you are no longer enrolled?? haha

  STUDY.COM Mirco & Macro Economics
Posted by: Jimmy999 - 11 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (3)

I need to take both Micro & Macro Economics for my Degree plan and was wondering if a fellow study.com user could help.

Which course should I complete 1st?    Will Taking Micro Economics 1st help complete some of the chapters in the Macro?  or Vice-Versa?

Any Advice would be greatly appreciated

  American College of Education (ACE)
Posted by: acamp - 07-18-2018, 08:51 PM - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - No Replies

Good evening all,
I searched and saw a few threads regarding the college “American College of Education”.

Their masters degrees are less than $10k but they do not accept financial aid.

Has anyone on the forum worked on a masters degree through this college? If so, can you share your thoughts/experiences?

Thanks in advance!

  Shoutout to Alanis Business Academy YouTube channel!
Posted by: camjenks - 07-18-2018, 07:06 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

Just wanted to give a quick shoutout to the Alanis Business Academy YouTube channel, specifically the Marketing playlist. I had the Principles of Marketing Clep scheduled for this afternoon and was feeling underprepared even though it's supposed to be one of the easier ones, so I binge watched the playlist over a couple hours. Several questions I ended up knowing the answer to because of those videos, and it gave me a good overview of the main points.

I had already gone through the Modern State course (watched the videos, which were average; skimmed the 550 page textbook for subheadings, bolded words, and summaries; and went through the quizzes). The Peterson practice tests for Marketing are WAY harder than the Clep. Seriously, I was scoring 50% and scratching my head on most of the concepts the questions were based on, so I got a little nervous that I was taking the test too lightly. Fortunately, I found the Alanis playlist and it definitely filled in some gaps. I ended up scoring a 75. They have many other playlists for business subjects, which I haven't checked out yet, but I assume they're similar. It's in the style of Khan academy (black screen with writing/drawing and narration). 

P.S. I did search and saw there are a few posts about Alanis from around 2013-2015, but I hadn't stumbled across those since that was long before I joined here.

  Business Degree and Dental School
Posted by: Flowers12 - 07-18-2018, 02:12 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (6)

My son's ultimate goal is to become a dentist (and possibly move on to becoming an orthodontist).
That said, he would like to obtain a bachelor's degree in business (COSC) prior to dental school.
I am wondering how to proceed with consideration to cost and time spent in classes to meet dental school prerequisites. Most dental schools have prerequisites such as English Composition (6 credits, no pass or fail grades, so no testing out) plus 26 or more credits in sciences (biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, biochemistry etc), many with lab component requirements. Some dental schools require that these be taken at a four year college/university (no community colleges). I would love to hear your thoughts/suggestions because I have been known to overthink things when the logical route is right in front of me. Thanks!
