    Default TESC BA Psychology AND AS Business Administration degree plan review

    Hello everyone. After studying for my BA in Psychology on and off since 2001 I decided it's time to get it over and done with. I currently have 85 credits from SNHU and American College of Dubai. SNHU is generous with transfer credit policy (90 credits) but you can't do anything in your last 30 credits so I'm stuck cuz I can't afford it anymore. I decided that I'd go with TESC using per credit enrollment and test out using TECEP, saylor academy and exe (I know I'd have to take the capstone and in all fill Tesc residency of 24 credits, 8 courses/exams, still cheaper overall). Oh and use the free credits towards AS in business administration in addition to the BA in Psychology (I know diploma will only read BA). I need someone with experience (I am sure many of you) to look at my plant and tell me if I need to alter anything.
    I'd also like to confirm that if I enroll now with 35 credits remaining TESC won't force to use another enrolment plan.
    OK so here's my plan of how my credits fit (in brackets is what I still need to take, course names and numbers as they appear on my transcripts).

    What I meant above in regards to the pay per credit enrollment is whether I'm allowed to take this many credits (36) under this plan within a year.

    Are you asking if there is a limit on how many exams you can take in a year? If so, I don't believe there is.

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

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

    Yes that's what I meant, but I meant this under the pay per credit enrollment. I have come across a thread somewhere where someone said that they were made to take another enrollment so I was having doubts. Can't find that thread now.
