Bragging - Degree Completion

And, the cornerstone IS waived for 2nd bachelor's degree students.

Definitely not regarding macroeconomics, I'm struggling to get through it the first time.  The material itself is easy, it's just terribly dull even with SDC's normally entertaining videos.  But, there are enough options that I can take new classes that I haven't tried before from SDC that won't duplicate any of my previous credits but will still fill the required slots to earn the degree.  Since I can take up to five exams per month with SDC, it won't impact my schedule if I have to take additional courses, especially since I'm over 50% completion with most business courses at SDC due to quiz overlapping.

As stated, you must earn 24 new credits after the conferral the first degree and they must be in the AOS. All gen eds and free electives are waived. TESU is very strict about this policy. Once they get the transcripts showing your WGU complete you must have 24 new credits after this, which might mean you have to re do courses.

Doing a second AOS would eliminate this problem and you would still only to take one capstone. I suggest a CIS AOS because of your interest and knowledge in computers. That would be easy to do via SDC and I believe the free TEEX count towards this AOS as well.

I would like to get a clarification from natshar and dfrecore.

For the 24 new credits, I should get that after the conferral of the first degree.

This is my situation.
I am a student with foreign credits on Business Administration..
But since my field of work is in IT and i got CompTIA certs, I decided to go with WGU and 50 of my General Education foreign credits and certs was credited on a BS Network Operations Security degree. Which I will have 50/122.

My Business Administration foreign credits will not be applied on my BSNOS degree since its irrelevant. I have a potential of 30 foreign business credits that is equivalent to a TESU BSBA courses.

So lets say I finished my BSNOS degree then I decided to get a second Bachelors degree in BSBA at TESU. Would I forfeit my 30 Business foreign credits at TESU? Do I need to take fresh 24 new credits?

Yes, the foreign credits are from before the WGU completion, so they are not new. They need to be earned after completion, even if you didn't use them in your first degree.

Thank you very much for the clarification JSD.
It's a bummer that 30 of my business credits will go to waste.
Now I won't be taking the free TEEX Cyber courses and CSM until I graduate at WGU. I might be able to use it as free electives or AOS when I decided for a 2nd degree at TESU. Or might as well take an MBA instead.

I really wanted to do Orlando.  Unfortunately, for the first time in years, WGU isn't doing Orlando in 2020.  So, since I live in North Carolina, I will likely attend the one in Charlotte in March.
