A.A.S Block Transfer
#11
For example, out of my 64 credits from Excelsior Purdue only honored 23 credits.

Ok, so that's curious because Purdue Global or Online or whatever their new name is will evaluate credits pretty much the same as any of the big 3.

When you say "honored" what do you mean exactly- you mean that they applied them to your degree? If so, what did they say/do with the rest of the 41 credits? Knowing why they didn't apply to your degree will give you good information that will help you predict how other schools will evaluate your credits. I'm not saying to NOT apply to the big 3, I'm saying you're going to drop a bunch of money doing this- and it might be helpful to share more info here first. There is probably a very simple reason why those 41 didn't work for your degree.

If you're willing, would you post the contents of your 64 credit AAS and the results of your Purdue evaluation?

The problem isn't that they didn't "honor" your credits, it's that the credits you had didn't apply to the degree you wanted in the way you wanted them. That will be the case for most schools - things just don't "fit" where you'd like them to.

When lots of your credits are military, allied health, lower level math, etc, that's just what's going to happen. It's a bummer, but it is what it is.

So to put it differently, if you had 60 credits of math, you'd be in the same situation. Math credits transfer no problem, but no degree allows for 60 slots to be filled with math credits, thus they won't all fit into a new degree plan.
If, for instance, I wanted a degree in underwater basket weaving, it might ask for 6 math credits in the general education slot, and then allow 24 credits of electives- as such, only 30 credits would be eligible to fill the slots. It's not that my credits weren't honored, or that they didn't transfer, it's that I didn't choose a good place to put them.
Same hypothetical scenario - same 6 credit math requirement, same degree major, but now I find a college that allows 45 elective credits. In THIS situation, I'd get to use 51 credits - a huge improvement.

So, this is going to be a bit of a research project for you- playing with different degree plans and seeing where you can get the most bang for your buck. It will be expensive and tedious to have a college do this for you, my advice is to patiently try and do this to the best of your ability yourself. Working the credits against different plans can show you how to get the most out of your previous degree. (of course a block transfer would be great- but just watch for the snare that allows a block transfer but maintains that you still meet all the requirements, in that case you can end up needing to do more than 120 credits and you're not actually coming out ahead).
