Does TESU do blanket transfers from degrees?
#1
Long story short, I have my BSc Information Technology, but I somehow got away with not taking a natural science course or a small handful of others. Is it likely that TESU would transfer my degree in as a way to fulfill General Education requirements? I know some schools do it, just not sure about them.

I'm looking into the BACS as a way to level my math out for graduate studies and transcript the nonstandard math credits into something that my target university programs wouldn't balk at (rather than spending $6,000 getting more math classes done). If this is remarkably difficult, I might take a different route, because I don't exactly need another Bachelor's degree

If you have a bachelor's already, TESU might do a blanket transfer and waive the GE requirements - including (IIRC) the cornerstone requirement. AFAIK, they are usually more generous with credits when transfering in a bachelor's rather than an associate's. If, for some reason, they say that you do need science classes, Sophia is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to take a couple of those classes and fill the hole.

Sophia has easy College Algebra as a way to transfer some math credits too.  It does seem like Sophia is upgrading some of their courses, and the upgrades are harder.  College Algebra is not upgraded yet.  CLEP is great for College Math.  It is 6 easy credits, and if you watch just the videos and answers the questions on Modern States you can get a voucher to take the CLEP for College Math for free.  There is also a REA book that has just the practice CLEP exams for @ $25 if you wanted more practice.

If you already have a bachelor's degree and are seeking a second bachelor's at TESU, all GenEd requirements are waived, including the cornerstone. So it is effectively the same as a block transfer. The only exception would be if you have any GenEd pre-requisite courses for the new degree that are not met in your old degree. For the BACS, you will need Calculus I and Discrete Math which are GenEd courses, but are included in the AoS for the BACS, so they aren't technically considered GenEd courses for the BACS at TESU.

To pursue a second degree, you only need to fulfill the degree core (major) and/or AOS requirements for the new degree program. As part of that, you will need to transfer in at least 24 new credits that were earned after the conferral of your prior bachelor's degree.

What does Sophia seem to be upgrading? I'm wondering because many of the courses I recently completed were definitely their original courses.
