Bridging Credits Question
#1
Question 
Is there a regionally accredited 4-year college that will allow a person to have alternative credit sources, transfer them in, and also transfer to a state university?
A state university near to me only allows 90 transfer credits and they have to be from a regionally accredited 4-year college.

Both these schools meet your criteria.
Thomas Edison State University - 4 year college, regionally accredited, State University. Its known as TESU. The college, TESU accepts 114 alternative credit sources.
Charter Oak State College - 4 year college, regionally accredited, State University. Its known as COSC. The college, COSC accepts 114 alternative credit sources.

Do you have a list of how many credits per provider? Example: SL 30 SDC 60 OD 12? There are additional limitations.

No, that's called credit laundering. Whenever you apply to any college, all credits are evaluated from their original source- so for instance, you apply to College A. College A accepts CLEP credits, and they add them to your transcript. If you then decide to apply to College B, your CLEP credits do not flow forward onto your College B transcript. All credits are always evaluated at every transfer.

There are only 4 companies (that I am aware of) that are alternative credits that can appear on a transcript as original credit, but that wasn't your question, your question. As suggested already, if you want more alternative credit to make up your degree, your best bet is using a college that allows that. (Thomas Edison State University, Charter Oak State College, Excelsior College all fit that requirement)

Regarding your local University. Do they accept CLEP or DSST? Are they in the ACE database? The NCCRS database?

What are the four companies? I agree I can only think of two.

Off the top of my head, I can think of:

Outlier (via University of Pittsburgh)
Westcott (via Brandman)

And I know cookderosa usually considers ASU's earned admission program in this category, though I'm not sure I agree. Not sure what the fourth is.

For sure ASU would be b/c it generates "original" ASU credit, thus laundered from edX to ASU.

1. TEL = Colorado Christian University (confirmed by me)
2. Outlier.org = University of Pittsburg (confirmed but not by me)
3. edX= Arizona State University (confirmed by me via mysonx3)
4. Lumerit/ Get Unbound = Waldorf (confirmed but they were just sold, so I'm not sure this is still a viable option)

*need to confirm*
5 (?) Westcott/Omega Math =Brandman
6. (?) Veritas Press --> Cairn University
7. (?) Classical Conversations -->Southeastern University / College at Southeastern

I just don't think ASU earned admission counts because it isn't getting "laundered" from edX - it's an actual ASU class, which you sign up for on ASU's website, with ASU professors. With the others you list, the course content isn't provided by the school that grants the credit. The role of edX in these courses is much more akin to the role of Moodle in a TESU course than any of the other options you list.

I guess what I'm saying is that the course doesn't start as edX and then become ASU credit - it's ASU through and through.

But it's not important - merely semantics.
