Yes, we have one planned and approved, but probably will do BACS instead.

For the Chem/Physics section, Study.com worked:

SDC - General Chemistry with Lab I
SDC - General Chemistry with Lab II
SDC - Physics I

For Project Management, SDC worked again:

Study.com - Business 311: Project Management

HTH!!!

Thank you for the info. Hopefully one of Sophia's courses will fill in something.

Would Introduction to Information Technology fulfill computer concepts or move COS-101 Introduction to Computers into that position and use the LL Sophia course in the other position.

Basically, yes, I recommend to take as many Sophia.org courses as you can that will fit into the degree, all the courses can be used, including the Project Management course.  And because you're getting a second degree, you need 24 credits NEW after conferral of the first degree. The only 18 UL you need are all in the AOS, 12 (9 in Technical Studies/3 Capstone) and 6 in Technical Core.

These are the only classes I see that might work for this degree plan assuming they transfer in. Now they may not fit due to being LL but I'm going to work on these and see. The other may help a future History degree that I might finish for fun at another University one day.

Project Management
Environmental Science
Human Biology
Introduction to Information Technology

The requirement for Project Management has to be UL and be transferred in as MAN-435. I don't believe Sophia.org's option is UL. We have SDC Bus 311 planned and approved.

That said, Sophia.org Introduction to Information Technology transfers in as CIS-107 and can fulfill the Computer Concepts requirement.

No, the Project Management course listed in the screenshot just shows an upper-level number for that course/area, it's not required to be upper level. Within the degree evaluations, it'll tell you which courses requires that upper-level credit, namely in the AOS and Tech Studies requirement.
