Excelsior business degree plan
#1
I went to the Excelsior wiki and I didn’t find much information to make a degree plan. I contacted the college and they told me they would accept my associates degree from Ashworth College in General Business. I want a degree plan for the upper level courses and the free electives suggestions. Any suggestions from anyone in the group would be helpful. I want to major in the bachelor of science in business at Excelsior.

So, it's not much help to know that "they will accept" your degree, because that gives you very little info on the more important part: what they will bring your credits in as. Yes, they accept NA credits. Awesome. You're halfway to a BSB. BUT, which courses you took, so that you can make a degree plan, is much more important.

Much better to list all of your courses here.

List by Course #, FULL course name, number of credits, and grade if less than a C-.
repeat until all courses are here

@desireelws50, you've been a member for a while and most of your posts are questions, we don't know your situation. Laddering up from the Ashworth Associates to an Excelsior Bachelors is a recommendation, but you can also look at others once we get more info from you. You really should fill in the template and last page addendum, provide us as much info as possible for us to assist you the best we can: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...Area-works

30 transfer credit came from Williston State College. The rest of the credits came from Ashworth College. The credits from Williston State College are over 10 years old and mostly general education credit. Ashworth College accepted them. I plan to major in Business of science for my future bachelor degree. I’m looking for mostly good suggestions for my junior and senior year at Excelsior. I’m 37 years old and want a degree to hopefully work in Technology Sales or the insurance industry as a claims adjuster.

Edit your post - and list courses you took at each school separately (EU will not look at transfer credits, they will look at the original transcript).  Don't split by term, just list courses by school.

Make sure your courses from Williston State College are listed by what THAT school lists them as - course number and full course name, because that does matter.  What Ashworth brought them in as is irrelevant.  For EU, that Business English course name WILL be important (they've stopped accepting English Comp II and want Business Writing instead).

Oh, and list the actual years you took your courses (general). EU will accept courses for the BSB that are 15 years old or newer. So "greater than 10 years old" is not as important as "less than 15 years old."

Any particular reason you want EU over UMPI? UMPI has several options for business degrees.

Probably because Ashworth is NA.

UMPI has accepted some NA credit.

ETA: Ashworth is in the transfer database. They've accepted quite a few courses from them.
