DegreeForum alumni check-in
TESU - BALS - December 2020

DegreeForum was absolutely key in my completing my bachelor's degree 40+ years after I first started college.  I would occasionally pop on to see what others were doing and after our work went remote in March 2020 I popped in and saw a post that Sophia courses were free through July 2020.  I immediately signed up for, and took, possibly every available course they offered offered- completing 67 ACE credits in about 4 months.  

In July I sent my 57 RA credits (from early 80s!) along with my Sophia credits to TESU and EC for an evaluation and TESU came back with my needing 4 courses to complete a BALS and EC came back with my needing 6 courses.  I chose TESU with an August start and then returned to this forum to find 2 UL ACE courses.  I then got permission from my TESU advisor to transfer in TEEX Death Investigations and SDC Advanced Technical.  

That just left the cornerstone and capstone, both of which I took in the August term.  After 40+ years I earned my degree in December 2020.  DegreeForum helped me check off that box (and enabled me to get a promotion).

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!   Smile
