Done MBA without a Bachelor's Degree 10 years ago & some employers still demand one
#21
Late to post a reply, but I actually think a second Bachelors would not be a bad idea depending on What the Bachelors is in... or in your case, a first bachelors. For example, a few members on this board and the sister board have multiple Bachelors degrees. Basically, it boils down to what you want to do with your education and how you want to roll with it, someone on this board or the sister board doesn't make that decision for you, they can give you the pros and cons, but ultimately - go with the gut. You may need that Bachelors to get into a different Masters program as there may be prerequisites for that Masters.

You can refer to the Wiki for a couple of users like Bricabrac and Lindagerr and there are other members such as Sanatone and Ryoder who are working towards their doctorates who also have completed a couple of Bachelors from TESU. For example, if you review the wiki https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Degree_Forum_Wiki - it mentions bricabrac did 4 degrees in 2 years for under $10K, Ryoder finished his BSBA in 6 months and knocked out another in 6 months. If you review https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/TESU_Degree_Plans , it shows Lindagerr did her 4 degrees as well at TESU.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

videogamesrock: "Athabasca has a 3 year bachelors degree in general studies. You can transfer in 90 graded credits from a regionally accredited university and pay a fee to graduate."


No capstone and just transfer in 90 hours to Athabasca? That sounds too simple.

I have a student with about 120 semester hours, 3 hours short of a degree from TESU, 6 hours short of a degree from Excelsior. The hold up is the capstone. Are you saying it would only take paying fees to graduate from Athabasca? About how much?

Oh, wait, I think see. It's about 60 hours of actual courses, 30 of CLEP, and 30 of DSST. I'm guessing that's only 60 hours at Athabasca.
63 CLEP Sociology
75 CLEP U.S. History II
63 CLEP College Algebra
70 CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature
68 DSST Technical Writing
