    Default Testing out of Bachelors Degree

    Hello all,

    I am just wondering about any information that anyone on here can give me about any bachelor's degrees that people on here have completely tested out of? I have received my CCAF degree in an Aircraft Maintence field, and have been taking a few cleps and dante's exams here while I have been deployed, and was just looking in to the easiest way to achieve my bachelor's degree, with no preferance towards anything in particular.

    Just as a side note, I am currently enrolled in Excelsior, in the Criminal Justice degree field with an emphasis in Homeland Security. I was planning on doing some of the online degree specific classes while I was here, but my TA does not cover the summer classes, so I had to either pay the full fee, or drop out. Long story short, I dropped the classes.

    I completely tested out of my BSLS with a focus in psychology at Excelsior. I think they may now require a capstone, but that would be just one course. While I did most of the exams through CLEP and DSST I did take some ECE's for the psych focus. If you are already enrolled it should be an easy switch to over the LA division. Good luck!

    Er, what? I just talked w/ a base ed counselor 2 weeks ago about taking summer courses and he said no problem. Who told you that?

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

    Study for your exam using the same CLEP Study Guides used by thousands of members of this discussion forum!

    Did you run out of TA money (the $4500 per year)? If that's the case, you can use GI Bill TA top up. They can retro the payments back I believe. If it is just summer classes, I've taken classes year round. Please specify on why TA refused to pay.
    CLEPS Passed: 10 DSST Passed: 11 TECEPS: 1

    Don't waste time by trying to save time. The only sure way to complete your degree is to knock out credits quickly and efficiently.

    Don't let easiness bite you in the rear. Know your endgame (where you want to be) and plan backward from there. Your education is a means to an end.

    Be honest professionally, socially and academically. There are people (especially little ones) who look up to you and they're going by your example.

    Be proud. Whether you're an Engineer or Fast Food worker, there is honor and dignity in hard work.

    Picking on people weaker than you only proves that you are a weak person.
