In addition to the new categories, I noticed...

here's the link to the new way exams fit in https://www.charteroak.edu/catalog/curre...mlist2.pdf

The old Ethics gen ed (category d) now seems to be part of ARH (arts and humanities) instead of separate category. Well, at least one of the ethics exams is that way. The point is "ethics" category not there. and exams that fit ethics before don't really seem to fit a new gen ed category. I'm overthinking.
US and Non US are not separated. Some of the Non US are part of ARH now, and some are "HIS". US seems to be one way to meet"HIS"
old "global" category not there with new name.
Not seeing an Exam way to get DEI category. Not sure any of the non collegiate providers has a course that is ready for that.
still looking.... I'm sure others will find more little things.
It'll be interesting to see what non collegiate providers offerings will fit the new categories.
TESU: BALS June 2021 (comm college, clep, sdc sophia coopersmith, SOS110, and capstone)

I agree with you. It will be difficult to fulfill these new requirements. For example, in their own current list of courses, there is only one way to satisfy the "Innovative Thinking" requirement, and that is MGT 350 Entrepreneurship. https://www.charteroak.edu/catalog/current/courses/ And there is only one exam on their list that satisfies it, the "Intro to Entrepreneurship" TECEP.

You're looking at the 'master list' of exams, they take ACE credits from partners as well, you want to 'max/mix' the most of your credits using RA/ACE credits to get a better degree plan created for yourself. COSC takes 24 RA and 6 from their cornerstone/capstone, you just need to take 24 RA credits elsewhere and transfer them in, for the remainder of the courses, it can be all ACE credits with whatever provider is showing in their list of approved/authorized partners. For your Innovative Thinking, you can throw in Study.com Intro to Entrepreneurship under the ACE category and use something else for RA...

Unfortunately, I don't think "Intro to Entrepreneurship" is on the transfer list for Study.com and COSC.

They have changed by becoming specific and limited, more so than probably dozens of schools, about ACE/NCCRS credit from civilian alt-credit course providers.

But their residency requirement is still just the capstone and cornerstone, and they're still one of the most RA, CLEP, DSST, military, and portfolio credit friendly schools anywhere.

Wouldn't you need capstone, cornerstone + diversity, equity, and inclusion taken at Charter Oak?

You need also:
  • 30 RA total credits
  • 80% minimum grade on transfer credits
  • 30 UL courses  (hard to get with limited Study.com options)
Degrees: BA Computer Science, BS Business Administration with a concentration in CIS, AS Natural Science & Math, TESU. 4.0 GPA 2022.
