Computer Science Degree Plan
#11
FYI, although we do generally use $100/class as a rule of thumb around here for alternative credits, if you take a significant number of CLEPs your number will be lower as long as you do them through Modern States to get them for free.

WGU might be the better option. I think ita more cost effective for the CS degree.

For WGU (my 0.02):

Intro to IT is CLEP'able via Information Systems
Geography is CLEP'able via Intro to Psych/Sociology
English Comp is CLEP'able
Integrated Science is CLEP'able via Chemistry (not sure about Biology) or the Astronomy DSST
Project Management is available from Study.com
Science Lab - save the $$ and do it through WGU....it takes a couple of days at most
Intro to Comms can also be done via SDC
Intro to Humanities is also CLEP'able via A&I Lit (a much easier test from what I hear)
American Politics is likely CLEP'able via American Government
Stats can be done via DSST/SDC as well
There is a new DSST that will likely cover Ethics in Tech
Technical Comms can be covered via the Tech Writing DSST
Working On:  WGU MS-ITM (start early 2020), GA Tech OMSC (start early 2021?)
Completed:  WGU BSCSIA (started 10/1/2018, finished 01/11/2019)

Operating Systems is at SDC and ACE approved, I believe.

Are you talking about: https://learn.saylor.org/course/view.php?id=94 and https://learn.saylor.org/course/view.php?id=73  I'm wondering why these don't show up at https://partners.wgu.edu/Pages/Single.as...769&pid=86 Do you know for sure that WGU will take it?

It looks like Software Engineering is only 3 credits, but WGU wants 4. http://www2.acenet.edu/credit/?fuseactio...CE=1008220 I don't see Operating Systems on ACE.

It would be a huge help if these worked. I feel like I need just a few more credit sources to make a 1 term WGU work.

Does anyone know of sources for Discrete Mathematics I (4), Business of IT - Project Management (4), American Politics and the US Constitution (3), Ethics in Technology (3), or Technical Communication (3)? Those seem likely candidates to transfer, maybe.

***********
Its always up to the discretion of the school whether or not they will take it. I agree with whoever said its best to ask first.

"It looks like Software Engineering is only 3 credits, but WGU wants 4."

Doesn't matter. If the evaluator feels the course fits, you'll get a "transfer" or "requirement satisfied" and get the 4 credits. For example, "Intro to IT" is 4 credits, while the Information Systems CLEP is only ACE accredited for 3. For me they transferred in the CLEP and gave me the 4 credits.

I see several posts here saying WGU, even two terms, is cheaper. How is that possible when one term is $3,225 and two would be $6450, assuming there are no other fees?
