Accepted UL credits from SDC
#1
recently I applied to Excelsior, and I considered going to them. while I was waiting to make a decision I emailed an academic advisor about UL courses from SDC. Here's the email she sent back to me

"So quick update for you – Health301 is approved for the ethics requirement. Unfortunately, Health305 Healthcare Finance and Budgeting is a lower level course, which you do have room for, so I added it to your approvals.
 
I also realized that Business113 is a course called Business Communications, not Intro to Business Law. Sorry about that! However, I’m concerned that there may be some duplication between Advanced Technical Writing, Business Communications, and the Technical Composition that’s on your file. When we have courses that are too similar in terms of content, we only award credit once. So if you really wanted to take the Technical Writing and Business Communications, I would need you to send in syllabi for review for all three courses. If you don’t want to do that, that’s fine! You would just want to select different courses in place of them.
 
 
Here is your plan once again. So right now, there are 8 courses that you can take via Study.com.
 
 
21 upper level Arts & Science credits

  • 15 elective credits

  • Psycholgoy316 Advanced Social Psychology

  • Psycholgoy311 Physiological Psychology

  • Business324 Managerial Communication

  • Business313 Organizational Communication

  • One upper level Arts & Science elective course – (Subjects include: History, Psychology, Sociology, Communications, English, Political Science, etc.)

  • 3 credits for ethics requirement - Health301 Ethics and Legal Issues in Healthcare (this is an approved upper level ethics class)

  • 3 credits for Capstone – LA498 Liberal Arts Capstone (upper level credits only to be taken at EC)
 
 
9 upper level Any Academic Area credits

  • 6 elective credits

  • Business306 Strategic Human Resources

  • One upper level course

  • 3 credits for Cornerstone - IND301 Cornerstone B: Pathways (can only be taken at EC)
 
 
10.31 lower level Any Academic Area credits

  • 9 elective credits

  • Psychology106 Abnormal Psychology

  • Health305 Healthcare Finance and Budgeting

  • One lower level course

  • 1 credit for Information Literacy – INL102 Information Literacy (can only be taken at EC)"
 I hope this info can help others going to EC.

When I was accepted into the school, I immediately asked for my academic advisors email (ya know, cause I have no chill and super impatient) and sent her everything that was UL from SDC. Thankfully she got back to me with approved UL and LL courses.

That’s great. I was told By tesu that course equivalencies Had to be done via phone line mon thru Friday 11-1. Or by appointment.
Who’s available 11-1? It would sure be easier to utilize email.

At EC, you only get the discount if you take at least 12cr through them.  It's the "Course Option" rather than the "Multi-source Option."  It's still a great deal though, if I was starting over, I'd probably go this route.

Same discount for taking Sophia courses, too. https://www.excelsior.edu/partner/sophia/ It's great because some of the courses can be difficult and/or expensive to find elsewhere. This essentially gives you 2 "free" EC classes to fill in those gaps.

For Charter Oak, No to English, Yes to Sociology.  For Excelsior/TESU - Yes to both for UL.  And for other schools, you should check the website on study.com to see if there is an equivalency guide.  Just search for Study.com and the school name, click onto their equivalency link on their page: Here is the one for COSC: https://study.com/college/school/charter...llege.html Excelsior: https://study.com/college/school/excelsior-college.html  TESU: https://study.com/college/school/thomas-...rsity.html

One more thing: You should always verify with the school you want to attend. If there are changes to the course evaluations on ACE recommendations, the Big 3 and many others will most likely follow the recommendation, so it's also a good idea to review what's on the ACE site, some courses have got bumped to upper level and others have been dropped to lower level: https://www.acenet.edu/National-Guide/Pa...fault.aspx
