COSC and Studycom credit limits
#1
Charter Oak has a limit / cap on the number of Studycom credits you can apply to your degree. This has been confirmed twice this week - once by a colleague and once by me both with their registrar. It doesn't apply to all ACE credits, just Studycom.

Bachelor’s degree the maximum number allowed from Study.com is 87 credits.

Associate’s degree the maximum number of credits allowed from Study.com is 45.

Thanks for the heads up. This is strange,since Straighterline and others should also be limited since they have a similar format to study.com.

you'd think..... but I asked that specifically. It's Studycom only. (and FEMA which we already knew)

Maybe they're not having this problem with SL, since they don't have UL courses?  So fewer people are trying to bring in a full degrees worth of courses from SL, but some ARE trying to use Study.com 100%?  Just a guess.

Does COSC accept FEMA? I feel like I've seen threads about it but I haven't seen a clear answer.

I don't think there is any other single alternative method one could use for an entire Bachelors degree at COSC besides study.com. The others just don't have enough course variety and enough upper level. Maybe use 100% Davar for a business degree? Maybe use 100% Coopersmith for a psychology degree? But using just one source of credits isn't always the most practical.

COSC will accept up to 9 FEMA credits if the credits are related to the degree. If the credits are not degree related then the limit is 3 FEMA credits. If the credits are on an ACE transcript then they do not count toward the cap. 

That is what I found on their website:

I was going to tag you in this. Wink
That's a solid guess- the only SL UL is in the business degree, and I think there are only 2 or 3, so I think (?) that studycom was the only third-party option for a full degree (Before the cap).

Funny though, I messaged SL years ago and let them know that they only needed to add 1 fine arts credit and their courses could do an entire AA/AS at COSC (except for the Cornerstone) but they just haven't been developing like Studycom. Study is killing it. SL is, well, dying?

Yeah, I'm not sure if they're dying per se, but they certainly aren't adding to their catalog.  The only changes I've seen are when they bring in courses from another company, which I haven't noticed people liking much, and they added e-textbooks to their courses for $10 (which is worth it in my estimation).  Other than that, they are just stagnant.

I wish they would add more courses because I prefer their format among the ACE/NCCRS courses. Well, Davar is better, but those aren't really courses. I'd much prefer if TESU and Excelsior created more TECEPs and Uexcels. It would also be nice to see more CSU Global SSAs in computer science, mathematics, natural science, history, psychology, sociology, English, and communications. Those seem to be the more popular degrees on here outside of business.
