Do I still want to take Bioethics, Gerontology, and Juvenile Delinquency for myself? If so, then I'm going masked to a Pearson testing center. If anyone has any other alt credit listings for those besides Study.com that I was using to prepare, I would be grateful.

My Dual Enrollment student was looking at the Weather and Climate UExcel, same provisions only in person. Also attempting to get a Private Pilot License, and understands that basic meteorology is definitely a good subject to know. Again, the only other alt source I know is Study.com's Meteorology.

TECEP has a Meteorology exam.

Thanks, Rosy! I forgot about that one, hoping for ones that could be taken at the college testing center. :-)

Actually, I just noticed that Davar also offers a Meteorology course exam. The catch is that it's not ACE-approved, only NCCRS.

Here's my thread on TESU in-person proctoring:
https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ences-tips
I've done eight exams at my local library. It works okay-ish, likely better than ProctorU. Just need to stay on top of things and watch out for issues.
TESU Class of 2024 BSBA-CIS+GM, BSIT, ASNSM-CS+Math, AAS-GEN
Earned credits from Sophia, SDC, ASU ULC, TEEX, Microsoft, Strayer, TESU, Saylor, DSST, CLEP, CompTIA, StraighterLine, and others since starting in April 2020

I know it's an old thread, but I had to comment.   I'm helping an employee get a degree and JUST found out that UEXCEL exams were gone.  It is so disappointing because there were a number that were not duplicates of other CBE organizations.

Also, someday maybe a MS in Forensic Psychology, just for fun.   Oh, and a BS in Animal Behavior.  And, maybe when I'm 85 a PhD in something fun.

Fortunately, there are even more options for degrees now than there were when UExcels were a thing. Maybe not quite as easy for some people as testing out, but UMPI and TAMUC have some great degrees available for fast/cheap.
