Anyone know if there is a COSC application fee waiver or coupon?
Title says it all, I'm almost certainly going to attend WGU but I wanted to see how my current credits lined up and transferred in at COSC but I'm not sure its worth the 75$ to explore that avenue at this point. So I was wondering if anyone knew a way around that application fee to get an evaluation done.

Just for those that are curious I'll go ahead and post my situation, 

      I have an old NA degree (AAS Electronics) from a crappy now defunct embarrassment of a school and finally have the time and money to get a bachelors degree that doesn't embarrass me. I started lurking around here for ideas and advice around March of this year and have been casually taking saylor and SDC classes since then (also was fortunate enough to get in on that guardian scholarship before it ended, thanks to everyone for alerting me of those free 18 credits) The degree plans I'm exploring are in business, it fits my current job better as I've slowly transitioned out of help desk/tech service into office work at a manufacturing company and my only cert expired years ago. 

TESU - was my first idea but they don't accept any of the credits from my old NA school so I would be starting at zero there, not out of the question but not ideal.

Excelsior - accepted several of my credits, all the GE ones/Economics/ and a few others that count as free electives, I had about 30% of the needed credits there so not too bad, would need nearly all my UL credits though as only one of those transferred 

WGU - gave me a block transfer that took care of all but one GE class and covered a couple more, the block transfer put me at almost 50% completion there, only downside is the list of classes that aren't transferable so I would have to take 7 classes and finish in one term to make this economical. 

COSC - ? Unknown, not sure if its worth the money or just assume that WGU's block transfer of that crappy NA degree would be more generous.
Hey so I just went to the cosc site and asked them:

Hello. How may I help you?

I have a AAS from a nationally accredited college. Does cosc accept course transfers from nationally accredited colleges?
Hi Michael. No, we require regional accreditation or in some cases, ACE evaluation of courses.

Oh ok thank you
You're welcome.

So yes, it sounds like wgu is your best bet at this point. Which Saylor courses have you completed?

Yeah I should have mentioned that COSC made an agreement for students of that defunct school (ITT) stating that they would accept and transfer some courses but it doesn't list which classes would transfer in. So they told me that they would have to do an evaluation after I paid the application fee and sent in transcripts.

Since March I have completed the following classes

Saylor: Business Law, Intro to Business, Principles of Marketing, Management Info Systems

The Institutes: Ethics Financial Accounting, Intro to Managerial Accounting, Principles of Management, Human Resources Management, Organizational Behavior, Business Communication, International Business, Project Management, Advanced Operations Management, Macroeconomics, Principles of Finance, Personal Finance, Intro to World Religions

Currently enrolled in classes: Applied Marketing
