    Default Online sources for graduate level courses

    Hi:

    Is there any online resources ( ex: straighterline ) where we can get some graduate level courses before we enroll to the master program.I'd like to do this to earn some credits.

    Thnx in advance.

    There are a lot less options for graduate credits. You need to pick a school and see what they will accept.

    Statistics.com - Course List - Online Courses
    has a bunch of courses recommended by ACE for graduate credit

    but good luck finding a school what will accept them
    other than Rowan University Statistics.com - Degrees and College Credit

    I don't know if TESU or COSC or Excelsior or anyone else accepts ACE graduate credits

    We've talked about these before, and this only works if you are admitted to the exact grad program and school that is granting the micromaster certificate. Some of the programs like MIT and Columbia are very difficult to get into. If you're not admitted, these certificates aren't worth academic credit.

    Transferring grad credits is very hard. Many schools don't allow transfer credits. If allowed, they're often limited by university policy. Then the grad program may not apply the transfer credits to your specific requirements.
    TESU BA CS and Math (graduated December 2016)
    Courses/exams for both BA Computer Science and BA Mathematics: SL Calc 1, SL Calc 2, APU Linear algebra, TESU capstone
    Courses/exams for BA Computer Science: TESU Computer Architecture, DSST MIS, DSST cybersecurity, CSU-Global System Analysis, rest B&M courses from the past
    Courses/exams for BA Mathematics: TESU College Geometry, TESU Mathematical Modeling, edX differential equations (2 courses), rest B&M courses from the past

    There are very few online grad credits that you can get before you go for your M.A.
    It depends on the school, and most of them don't allow transfer credits. For the few that do, wherever you get the credits, they have to fit in with the courses included with the school's M.A. degree.

    That being said, I know Amberton University's Master's in Professional Development Degree will allow you to transfer up to 12 graduate credits in basically ANYthing.

    VESis are the easiest and cheapest grad courses you can take.
    If you can get an A or B in 4 VESi's 3-credit courses, then you can transfer those credits to Amberton and be 1/3 of the way done before you even start with Amberton. At that point, you'll only have to take 8 classes instead of 12 when you start.
    I'm on my 4th class with Amberton and so far I've gotten As in all of 'em.
    There's a TON of writing, but it is very doable.

    Ready for your CLEP exam?

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


    Programs like WGU offer Grad credit for certain Industry certifications...not quite the same as Straighterline, but is self study you can complete before you start the program.
