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.

I thought they got rid of ASU edx in favor of ASU earned admission.

Also what's TEL to Colorado Christian.

A state university near to me only allows 90 transfer credits and they have to be from a regionally accredited 4-year college.

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)
The three colleges you mention don’t have the degree programs I’m interested in unfortunately, but thank you.

Are you sure college doesn't accept credits from a 2 year college? Also what about clep and dsst?

A good option could be tecep and excel those are test out but also count as credit from regionally accredited university.

ASU self paced college algebra and pre-cal use Aleks math, which is ACE accredited, and grants college credit on an ASU transcript. Incidentally, also a cheap way to use Aleks, if you can’t test out the first month. Monthly rate is $20 normally, but ea.asu.edu charges $25 ID fee, and you get 1yr to finish. $400 to transcript each course. $20 fee to send a transcript to a school.
