Beginners Guide To Getting Cheap/Fast College Credit
#31
A few people have asked me to create a BACS/BSIT degree plan for them using primarily SL/Study.com sources as they're not near a CLEP/DSST testing location (yeah, I know how it feels, I am 1.5 hours away from the nearest one).  So, here it is for you to compare the programs!  If you are near a testing center, just change the SL/Study.com course to use CLEP/DSST instead.

For the individuals who asked how to get both, you may want to go with WGU as the pricing for both combined is pretty similar, I think it might be slightly cheaper at WGU.  For those who want to stick with TESU to get both, the comprehensive tuition is recommended, as you can take up to 36 credits within the year to get the "hard to find sciences/comp sci/IT courses or to use on the two capstone courses, also there will be no residency waiver fee".

Finally, to the others that asked about a BSBA GM/BALS NC combo with the addition of the two ASNSM Comp Sci & Math.  The file is pretty similar to the My Degree Plan!.xlsx file with minor modifications.  I have updated the science requirements to use the easiest ones, as well as updated the Associates/Bachelors and Masters sheets, I also added a Cost sheet to it as well and removed the certificates sheet/tab.

Note: If you look at the "options" of the BALS NC, you can change the optional list of courses around and add the 3 CS/CIS courses instead of taking History to get a BALS NSM instead of no concentration.  You can play around with other UL courses on Study.com to get a concentration instead of a no concentration BALS.  As again, your two degrees only require a different capstone + 21 credits.  "Tweak it" so it uses the 99 credits from the previous degree to lower the cost.

Hi guys i have some questions.
I got transcript from a college that medium of the language is english. But saw that thomas edison college requires an ielts or a toefl. I don't have those yet. Do i have to get those or could i complete my degree without ielts?
And saw that it requires a ssn number. I'm not u.s. Citizen. I'll be an international student.

Thanks in advance.

If you come from a country where English is not the native/first language, then you must clear the TOEFL/IELTS. This holds true even if English was the medium of instruction at your educational institution. I am an international student, and I had to clear TOEFL. From my experience, I can say TOEFL is comparatively easier to clear than IELTS. Also, there are a lot of free resources on YouTube to train for TOEFL. So, you could go on the ETS website, create a profile for yourself, and check out the dates on which TOEFL is offered in your country.
