Fast courses to get 6 elective credits

Regarding my prior post I thought I saw something about CLEP, DSST and AP on the website, guess not. Definitely check with a counselor to see if and how these are accepted.

Jennifer, thanks so much for sharing! My mom is not apart of Homeschooling for College Credit. I've actually been working with a friend who is doing a similar thing for her kids so we've been figuring it out together.

Well, it's just a free community like this one. You can join too, it's another tool for your toolbox. The distinction is that everyone there is still in high school (or their kids are) and homeschooled, so it's a big difference than here where most of us are adults who've already been through high school. The link under my name will take you to a landing page with all the groups for each state.

Thank you for the suggestions!

Any suggestions for a quick, 1-credit course? Preferably free, like NFA, Sophia etc. I have planned all of my academic evaluation requirements with my advisor at TESU. Just missing 1 credit. I could try ‘Intro to Sociology’ on Saylor, but I find it unbelievably long and boring for a 1-credit course! Any shorter, and more interesting options are welcome.

Why don't you just take the exam and see if you pass?  Then, you don't have to take the actual Saylor course.

Will try. It is a new subject for me. I need to study some basic material.

I would choose a subject that was easy, and shoot for 3cr instead of 1cr.  Unless you already know the material, why waste your time on a 1cr course except to fit it perfectly into your degree plan.  Having a couple of extra credits is not a bad thing - it's not like they penalize you for not coming in at 120cr exactly!

Find the easiest course/exam that you think you can pass, and take that.  A CLEP using MS is probably your best bet if you want free.
