Bachelor to Masters program at TESU
#1
Was wondering if anyone has taken this route and if it is easier on the wallet and shortens the time to get a Master degree later. Also can three years of volunteering count in the requirement of 3 years in the field. Thanks.

I think I looked into that in the past and you end up paying for a bunch of expensive grad courses through TESU. IMO it would be better to just finish your undergrad at TESU(or another big 3) transferring 114 credits in(or whatever the max is) and then apply for one of more affordable competency based programs like WGU and try accelerate through the program 1-2 terms.

Thanks, I do agree it will be best to just complete the BA and go from there. I have found a few Master Degree options in UK that are very appealing.

Bachelors to Masters option is a very interesting subject, this option provides the opportunity of using grad courses towards both the Bachelors and the Masters, plus the option of grad credits at the undergraduate pricing. Technically, it should save the average student energy/money/time as they would need to take less courses for the Masters. It all depends on the students situation...

This is great if you're planning to continue on with TESU at the Masters level, but their Masters are expensive, I would recommend a competency based degree at one of the major providers, Brandman, Purdue, Walden, WGU, etc instead. Some are afraid that these credits can't be used towards a masters at another institution as the courses were used for the Bachelors elsewhere.

To circumvent the issue and for the student interested in a Bachelors to Masters, I would just do a regular Bachelors degree first. Once done, instead of applying for graduation, apply for the Bachelors to Masters, you can then use these grad credits towards residency requirements and grad credits towards another degree elsewhere. Further to this, there are a few grad certs that can completely be done with this method.

In the end, you get a BA/BSBA or degree of your liking and a Grad Cert or Grad Credits at the price of undergrad that can be transferable elsewhere, plus you will no longer be subject to the residency waiver fee. That in itself just saved you 12 grad transfer credits at your next program, be it a competency or traditional online program.

Thanks.

Are you referring to the residency fee at the undergrad or graduate level, or both?

Now that is an interesting option. Thank you, sir.
