Degree Plan Review
#1
Question 
Hoping to get some input on the attached degree plan I created for my spouse.  I've also included her completed credit listed below for reference with some notes/questions. She withdrew from COSC due to life circumstances and we've now reevaluated and have chosen UMPI based on cost and degree plans available.  She currently has enough credit for the Pierpont BOG AS minus the information literacy requirement.  From there she plans on pursing the BLS Education Minor with as many non-youpace online UMPI UL EDU courses used as electives as practical.  Those courses should correspond with state teaching certification requirements.
 
Any input appreciated on the plan, education minor, comments or if you spot a course that would satisfy a GEC learning outcome not considered.
 
Straighterline:
English Composition I
United States History II
Introduction to Psychology
Introduction to Nutrition
Business Ethics (this is not listed on the SL->UMPI transfer list, I'm hopeful it satisfies 4C and/or 5D so Intro to Ethics is not required at Sophia)
Western Civilization I
Introduction to Biology (have not taken lab yet, is there any way to take the SDC Biology lab for 1 credit instead of the full 4 credit course?)
Introduction to Sociology

 
Aleks:
Beginning Algebra (It looks like beginning and intermediate algebra are no longer recommended for credit by ACE, however, these were taken while still recommended.  Will they still transfer as electives to Pierpont and UMPI?)
Intermediate Algebra
College Algebra
 
Yuba College:
ECE-1A Preschool Teach Practicum
ECE-1B Preschool Teach Practicum
ECE-3 Child Growth Dev
ECE-10 Health Safety Nutrition
ECE-27 ECE Multicultural Curriculum
ECE-11 Observation/Assessment
ECE-31 Child Family Community
ECE-20 Infant Toddler Development (taken at a CC, but corresponds to UL course at UMPI by same name, anyone had luck with transferring LL to UL at UMPI?)
 
COSC:
ECE-217 Exceptional Learner
 
Planned Sophia Courses:
Introduction to Information Technology (assuming this will satisfy the Pierpont information literacy requirement for the BOG AS)
Communication at Work
Art History I
Environmental Science
Intro to Ethics
Spanish I (has anyone tried the UMPI American Sign Language?  Would consider that over Spanish)

Edit: Found the UMPI course transfer database, doesn't exactly correspond with what Straighterline says, however, appears Business Ethics is worthless for the GEC

Beginning algebra should be accepted by Pierpont. I'm not sure about UMPI, but possibly. For both, it will need to be on a Credly transcript that shows the ACE recommendation.

For EC-20, UMPI does occasionally accept LL courses as UL. There is no way to know ahead of time unless it is already in the transfer database. Even then, the evaluation could change at any time.

Intro to IT will work at Pierpont.

Sign language is not available for YourPace students. French or Spanish are the only YourPace languages available. Sophia is recommended, but there are also ACTFL tests for students who already know other languages.

I wouldn't spend the money on StraighterLine. I would spend less money and complete classes faster at Sophia. Also the lab science can be completed on Study.com where you'll have a few options. For the $199 a month fee you can take 2 exams so 2 classes at the same time. Sophia's ethics course transfers to UMPI so no worries. Business Ethics is a tough one with many schools it's not viewed as an ethics course.

Great response, everything's on Credly and looks like Spanish at Sophia is it.

Thank you! Straighterline isn't what is used to be and I'd prefer to do only the 1 credit lab at SDC. I don't see that as an option when navigating their website.

Study's lab science courses are 4 credits. The lab isn't separate.

I don't think UMPI accepts it when you take a lab somewhere other than where you took the original course, so you're out of luck either way.

Pierpont does not have an Information Literacy requirement that I know of; do you mean Computer Literacy? If so, you can take Intro to IT from Sophia. It's a very short course.

Make sure you request the Area of Emphasis in ECE, as that is an option at Pierpont.

Continue on your journey from Pierpont BOG AAS, select an emphasis of your choice. Ladder that up to the UMPI BLS Education Minor, just make sure to complete 30 credits at UMPI and the bulk of the 24 UL requirements from them as well. I suggest adding a second minor to get that done...

Create a spreadsheet and put all the requirements into the sheets to reference and track your progress.
