Foreigner: any way to get a degree online - no CLEP DSST

I wasn't suggesting that SDC is RA, just saying it's something else I would look at in putting together a degree plan, as you'd have 60 alternative credits to play with. I didn't go with TEL not because of the cost, but because none of the classes were useful to me. And like many of the options always recommended here (Luna, Clovis, NMJC, etc.), the offerings are just too sparse.

Most of those options are semester-based, while TEL is self-paced.  So for anyone who isn't on a strict timeline for their schooling, TEL might be a MUCH better option.

But the fact that you can't use any of their courses is certainly a reason not to go with them.

I said why *I* didn't go with TEL. I wasn't claiming to speak for anyone else. I explained why I made the choices I made, because the degree plan offered *only* named TEL as an option for RA, and I think that's misleading.
