Wow, they're quick. I guess at other schools, students might change their mind after a day or few days.

I was wondering if you know how much fees are for the first term?

Are the books generally available as used books? (I know some other schools where they books are more proprietary.)
Working on second TESU degree. Graduate in June or Sept?
First Masters complete. Choosing next Masters / grad cert.
TESU BSBA (with ASNSM) in March 2018.

I spoke with them and they said they would take my unofficial transcript (which I was able to fully copy out of MyEdison using the Full Web Page Screenshots add on in Firefox) and the 'Graduation Information from Thomas Edison State University' email/letter confirming my degree conferral date of my BSBA.  I will still need to get them over the official transcript (once it posts the degree on Dec 14th).

I have just applied and filled out the 'Free Transcript Request Service' that Walden offers (they request on your behalf), now I wait.  With the free term, even if it takes a year - that is only $6750 for an RA ACBSP Accredited MBA.  If it takes less than a year it only gets cheaper, 6 months would be $2250.

With nothing to lose - Anyone else going to join Sanantone and I?

Thomas Edison State University (TESU) 
- BSBA General Management, December 2018
- ASNSM in Computer Science, December 2018

Here are the breakdown of the Tempo pricing and amount of courses for the degrees offered
Master of Healthcare Administration (MHA) is $2,050 per 3-month subscription period - 10 courses
If someone can finish a WGU degree in 3 months, they may be able to finish this in the same amount of time
If not, in 6 months, it'll only be $4100 for an MHA, I don't know if it has secondary accreditation.

Master of Business Administration (MBA) is $2,250 per 3-month subscription period - 13 courses
Healthcare Management and Project Management concentration - both the same price/number of courses
If someone can finish this in 6 months, it'll be $4,500 and you get an RA degree with ACBSP accreditation
This degree can rival WGU's offering, especially if you can get it for $2,250! (one term of 3 months)

MS in Early Childhood Studies is $1,800 per 3-month subscription period - 8 OR 11 courses
Administration, Management, and Leadership Track - 11 courses
Teaching and Learning in Early Childhood Settings - 8 courses (with added competencies)
If someone can finish this in 6 months, it'll be $3600 for a Masters degree in Early Childhood Studies
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)

Its a great offer for a free term but no, I won't be applying as I want to get this BA CS/Math completed for June 2019 grad.
However, I told my sisters and both of them are very interested in the program, they're going to apply to Walden and WGU.

Just looked at the MHA (very quickly, not indepth), but it says Foundations course needs to be taken by itself the first the first term if you start midterm.  That program starts on the 10th, so I'm not sure it you can get a freebie on this.

Need to review in depth later today.

MHA - Walden University - Started 12/3/18 - Plan to finish in two terms Idea  I think I can, I think I can...
BS Liberal Arts - Depths in Healthcare and Psychology, Excelsior College 2014
AS Licensed Vocational Nursing, Mesa College 1989
Certificate Licensed Vocational Nursing (LVN), Mesa College 1977

And, a MBA after the MHA, thenwhen I'm 70 years old, I will finish my RN, just to say I did it!

I didn't really look into the MHA, but I won't need to take the foundations course for the MBA since I have an undergraduate business degree.
