Dream Degree - New Source of Credit
#1
Personal Education Coaching - DegreeDegree

$299 per 3 credit course. Some different offerings from Straighterline and Propero.
Might be useful for some.

Their twitter account mentions 3 free credits but I see nothing on the website, although I haven't contacted them about it.

You could, since COSC is listed as one of their "partner colleges". However, you might want to consider taking this course through Straighterline to save money:

Introduction to Philosophy Online Course- Online Intro to Philosophy - StraighterLine

If you prefer an exam what about DSST Ethics in America or even DSST Business Ethics? There's also an Excelsior Exam for $95.

I don't know anyone who's actually done it, but the saylor.org business ethics should fulfill the ethics requirement at COSC....I'm not at all sure a philosophy course would work (maybe).

I'm always happy to complete the free application waiver for those applying to WGU (I get a free gift from WGU for this).  Just PM me your first/last name and a valid email so I can complete their form.

This was my first visit to their site- so it's a secular version of college plus? Am I understanding that correctly?

Ew! But at least it looks like you can purchase courses a la carte. The website is not very clear about anything. I already spotted deceptive advertising when it says that it has 1600 partner colleges. I don't think this is true. It looks like they are just pulling a list of schools that are open to accepting ACE credits. The organization is not-for-profit, so I'm interested in knowing how much they charge for their services. They also claim to offer scholarships.

I don't know why you're asking that question. I was just making an observation.
