Do you mind if I copy your plan 1 for 1 Big Grin - I'm a little lazy to research and just want to jump straight into something.

Did you treat this as a full time job during the 7 months or even more time on it?

Thanks for posting this!

You can't own a copyright on a degree plan. Knock yourself out.
Essentially, because of the flexibility of my job and creative time management, I was able to work a lot of half and even some whole days at work on college stuff. Essentially my bosses viewed it as an investment in training and giving an employee skills and education at no additional cost to them other than my regular salary. I also dedicated a lot of evenings and weekends. So in short, I basically was able to dedicate the equivalent of a full work week toward my college goals for months. And I just gave up my social life for most of the year. Also, I think I misremembered when I started, and it actually took me more like 8.5 months instead of where I may have said seven.

Somewhere on this board, there's a thread where someone identified several Lower Level study.com courses that COSC transfers in as Upper Level because of the way they match transfer courses with internal courses. (If an outside course matches an upper level course that COSC provides internally, they give you the same upper level credit as you would've gotten for taking it through COSC. If it doesn't match one of their courses, they follow the ACE recommendations instead, from what I understand.) Lower level study.com courses have easier final paper assignment requirements, so you can theoretically take a couple "easier" courses than I did to fill Upper Level requirements. When I get more time, I'll try to dig up that thread and identify those courses.

I already ave my AS from Charter Oak. Looking to start BSBA soon. Any reason for the mixture of Study, SL, Davar for upper level (mainly Business courses). Would you recommend sticking with 1? I'm thinking doing all business courses w/ Davar.

You can't finish the COSC BSBA or any of the Big 3 BSBA using just Davar or any one provider, the UL courses aren't all offered by one provider alone. You will still need some other UL requirements elsewhere... your best bet for a Big 3 degree is to use all the providers available, such as Davar, Onlinedegree.com, Saylor, StraighterLine, Study.com and so on...

There's not enough UL credits from Davar to fulfill requirements. You gotta get some from somewhere else. You can knock out the business core with Davar very cheaply.
BSBA - Charter Oak State '18
Davar - 15 credits
Shmoop - 80 credits
TEEX - 10 credits
Straighterline - 34 credits
Study.com - 12 credits
Sophia - 2 credits

You CAN do the Big 3 BSBA's using only Study.com, it's the only provider that you can get an entire degree through.  BUT, all 3 schools have a limit on how many Study.com credits you can bring in: TESU is 90cr, COSC is 87cr, and EC is 84cr.

I guess what I'm saying is that they have all the courses you need, but there's a limit to how many credits you can bring in.

I finally put together the total cost of all the SL, Shmoop, Study.com, Davar, etc courses and proctoring fees - and the tuition and fees from COSC to figure out what the actual total cost was. (I haven't done it till now because of the piecemeal nature of it all.)

It's in the neighborhood of.... *drumroll*.... $5308.59 - give or take a hundred or two on things I may have forgotten or miscalculated (Definitely not a math major.)

My transcript lists 138 credits, which breaks down to a cost of about 38.50 per credit hour. 

The actual total amount of costs is somewhat higher because I ended up taking a few redundant courses and made some mistakes on timing membership fees. That total figure represents the approximate costs if I had nailed everything right from the get-go, and only taken what ended up on the final transcript within the correct windows of membership periods. That's why I posted everything in this thread. To give someone else a more concrete roadmap and take out some of the guesswork.
BSBA - Charter Oak State '18
Davar - 15 credits
Shmoop - 80 credits
TEEX - 10 credits
Straighterline - 34 credits
Study.com - 12 credits
Sophia - 2 credits
HES - 4 graduate credits
