TESU BALS & BSBA Double Degree - Revised Edition (requested by a few members)

So, I see that you are up for the Jedi challenge! Here is what I propose for you and how to do it: Get the TESU double combo BALS/BSBA for the price of 16 Residency Credits! Residency credits are courses to be completed at the institution - not dependent on location, each and every school has their own varying residency credit requirements. Essentially you're just going for the BALS/BSBA because of the courses you're taking, as these degrees are the cheap/easy/fast degrees that can use the max alternative credit transfers at the Big 3.

Even though you have cheap community college credits in some states and free CLEP tests now, the freedom & luxury of doing it all from home and safety + security of not catching Covid, in addition to other things (save gas/time driving), it's much better to complete your alternative credits/exams entirely online.  You'll get many answers to each and every question, as many variables are at play, but my answers are always a mix of cheap/easy/fast and I add the extra ROI/Value into the mix whenever possible.

To start the process of getting credit:  Follow these steps.  1) Invest in a second monitor for multi-tasking, it's so much easier and faster!
2) Sign up for Sophia.org, complete every course you can, pace yourself two courses at a time, blast through as many per month!  Here's a link: https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/So...lency_List

Note: Many schools have a 75% maximum number of credits you're authorized to transfer in credits, some only allow 50% or less. Most schools will have a 30 credit residency credit requirement for their Bachelors program, 15 for their Associates. For TESU, it's just 16 credits for residency. At Excelsior, if you take 13 credits through them, you pay slightly more than just 7 - the minimum required at Excelsior College.

I wonder if posting this will fix the previous post of mine, it's not showing up when I'm logged in, but does show up when I'm not logged in... that is so strange, weird! I tried on multiple browsers (Chrome/Firefox) and the thread post shows up if I am not logged in, but once I log in, my last post is missing!

There is an issue with the website, skip all the posts and links until you get to the degree template page on post #28 and #31. My final post should also have a link referencing those, unfortunately, no one can read my final post if they're logged into DegreeForum, but the post exists if you do not log into degree forum. The two links to my spreadsheets are available there...

There are plans on the wiki for TESU. A sort of a plan for COSC (History concentration). I was in the middle of making a cost comparison page when TESU implemented the 30 RA credit requirement and everything went topsy-turvy.
