Wouldn't have even been considered without a degree to check the box. So this has turned out to be a very worthy investment that will more than pay for itself in a year.

That's amazing news and so inspiring!  Thank you so much for sharing all of the information you did.  I think this has to be one of the best threads on here.....seriously.  So very happy for you!

Congratulations, I hope to being able to finish in the same way you do!

As international student my options are a bit more limited.

It is requisite to have a Natural Science with Lab course? Can this be done 100% online?

COSC does require a science w/lab - and it can be completed completely online. In example: Study.com has a Biology I w/lab option (the lab is virtual)

Cool, online education never ceases to amaze me.

In the screenshoot numer 3 the document says: Natural Science course with laboratory required

I see now that the term "requierd" refer to the lab, my original interpretation was the a Natuarl Science course with laboratory was required for the BSBA in COSC

This is great!  Congrats! Pretty much what I am hoping to do, although I do not necessarily have to do it in less than a year.  Did you finish all these credits BEFORE you registered with COSC or after? Also, I've seen mixed info on how many courses MUST be taken at COSC to earn the degree.  Some say 90, some say none.  Which is correct?

2 courses (6 credits) must be taken at COSC to earn the degree, the Cornerstone and the Capstone.

In response to the last few questions
1. A science with a lab is required. In my case, I used Straighterline's Microbiology w/ lab. They don't provide the lab kit. You have to go to a third party supplier and order it from them, but all the worksheets/instructions/grading is through Straighterline. As I recall, I had to do a DNA extraction (mixing up a couple things in a test tube), build simple models. get some Jell-O and items of my choice to represent parts of a cell and build two cell models (one plant one animal), several drawings of cell stages, chloroform extraction with chemical strips (one I'm certain was "stale" or faulty and I noted that in my turn-in paper as to why it didn't seem to give the expected results. They didn't penalize me.), a lot of sorting beads to work out the probability of genetics and one or two other things. I personally hated microbiology. I chose it because it had the cheapest lab out of the Straighterline options. If I had to do it over again, I'd probably pick a different science. Your preference may vary.

2. I took most of my classes BEFORE enrolling in COSC. But not all. There were several I completed while also doing the two semesters of COSC's in-house cornerstone/capstone. They allow you to continuously transfer in courses while you're enrolled. If there's a required slot you're missing, your student advisor will point it out and ask if there's a class on Study.com or Straighterline you want to take to fill it. There is a deadline ahead of graduation after which you cannot transfer anything in. So you couldn't, say transfer in a class 4 days before you graduate. I think it's common sense they need time to process anything you transfer, but not everyone has common sense.

3. You're only required to take one 3 credit cornerstone and one 3 credit capstone. They can't be in the same semester. You have to complete the cornerstone before you are allowed to take the capstone. The cornerstone is a very simple "gatekeeper" course. I would describe it as "how to college." They teach you how to write a research paper. So two semesters at COSC at one class each and you can transfer in literally everything else.
