    Default Thank You, Study.Com!!!

    My son took the last final exam of his Guardian Scholarship period this afternoon. He was able to fit 5 courses/exams into the 3 month period, and I am just thrilled about it. We had been on the fence about whether Study.com was right for him, but as it so happened, changes were made during his membership which addressed our concerns - most importantly, the final exam score being viewable upon completing the exam. Papers were graded quickly and fairly, and he felt the finals, for the most part, reflected the coursework well. He is taking a much-deserved 4 week break from school, and then I'll be signing him back up to complete a few more courses on Study.com. I'm hoping Employment Law will be available soon as well so he can take that one too. I appreciated your format so much that I signed my younger son up for the 12 month regular membership without college credit courses - and next year he'll be upgrading so he can earn college credit as well. You have definitely earned a loyal family of customers!
    Here Researching for my son, who has done the following:
    Community College: Intro to Philosophy, Fundamentals of IT, English Comp 1
    Saylor: Intro to Business, Principles of Marketing, Corporate Communication
    Shmoop: US History 2 (WGU won't accept this)
    ALEKS: Int. Algebra, College Algebra
    Study.com: Personal Finance, Principles of Finance, HR Management, Global Business, Advanced Operations Management - Next Up: Project Management, Employment Law (Pending 3 Credit ACE Approval)
    Straighterline: US History 2, Environmental Science, Microeconomics, Macroeconomics, English Comp 2, Principles of Management, Business Law, Business Ethics, Psychology, Organizational Behavior, Accounting 1 - In Process: Communication, Managerial Accounting, Statistics
    Ed4Credit: Managing Information Systems
    Goal: Complete BS in HR Management at WGU in one term.

    Did he take Labor Relations? That is a good intro to employment law, there will be some overlap there. It's UL at Study.com. There is an Employment Law course through CSU-Global CBE, and PF has Employee Benefits, Compensation Management, and Training Concepts as well (and all UL). More expensive than Study.com obviously, but I wouldn't necessarily wait for them to offer the courses that you want, since there's nothing that says they will (at least, not that I've heard).

    I need to find out if CSU Global's CBEs are transferable to WGU. A rep from Study.com stated they have been working on an employment law course with ACE approval, which is why I said what I did.

    Ah...well, that makes sense then. I guess if he still has other courses to take, then it makes sense to wait and see what Study.com comes out with.

    But, if you could check on the CSU-Global CBE's acceptance at WGU, that would be great to know for the rest of us.
