Degrees that can be obtained using only alternative credits.
I'm sure Dfrecore has a list. Most, if not all with the exception of finance, of the BSBA programs are test/alternative credit-friendly. I did the BSBA in CIS. I don't know if Communications and Criminal Justice are still test-friendly, for the most part. I'm about to help someone with a CJ plan.

I guess, to summarize, this was more a theoretical exercise than something I actually want advice on.

It's the "theoretical" part that makes it hard.

Understood, and I'm not asking for one person to "come to the rescue" with a list, just hoping maybe a few people could contribute one that they know can be done (i.e. I know that BA in Psychology is an option, so I listed that)

I'm not holding anything back- off the top of my head I can tell you 100% that Liberal Arts and Business are good to go. Beyond that, I'm cross-referencing degree requirements against ACE's list just like you would do.

I know that BA in Psychology can via TESU (as outlined here).

I saw a post in another thread that a BSBA in Healthcare Management is now achievable this way, and though I'm not sure what they are I think there are other BSBA areas of study that are achievable.

BAs in History and Sociology from TESU are each one class away (Historical Methods and Social Theory, respectively), though perhaps's Historiography & Historical Methods will get ACE accreditation soon.

Any other majors that are fully test-friendly?

Can you share the thread referencing Healthcare Management degree?
