Best college for a cheap technology security MS
#1
DSST recently added more exams on technology security. Based in London United Kingdom, which colleges accept/credit an MS entirely made of DSST CLEP exams?

DSST is welcoming European students based in Europe that’s fantastic but the college search is tricky as cyber security is growing fast and is fairly new.

Thank you Confusedeeya:

DSST/CLEP are typically not accepted for graduate level degrees. These are almost universally viewed as undergraduate credit.

Really absolutely no college in America offers any masters with CLEP DSST credits what a shame! Thank you for your answer anyway.

To be honest, no college SHOULD accept them as graduate work. They're no where near the rigor of higher level course work.

BS IT Security, Western Governors University, 2018
BA Psychology, Thomas Edison State University, 2016

ok so how can we get a Master degree on technology security for cheap? Credit by exams are fantastic for adults with years of working experience.

All CLEP exams are considered lower level (first two years of university) credit. A few DSST exams are considered upper level (last two years of undergrad) but not many.

Do you already have a bachelor's degree? What is your goal? Western Governor's University might be a good fit for you if you are trying to get through a master's degree in IT quickly.

Hi Kay, I have several years of working experience on technology security and competition is fierce. I wanted to validate with a degree my working knowledge and add up some skills with a master degree. I emailed DSST to confirm that none of their exams are recognised at a graduate level. I will try Western Governor's University too Wink

It is a real shame because the DSST and CLEP are fantastic organisations we do not have that in Europe. It is very flexible and cheap.

Nearly all graduate programs in the US require a bachelor's degree as a condition of admissions.

https://www.edx.org is an excellent way to get low price certificates of in technology from schools like MIT and Columbia University. Free if you don't want proof of completion. About $50 - $100 per course if you do want a certificate.
