General Studies Information Systems Concentration help needed
#11
OP is talking about this degree
https://www.charteroak.edu/catalog/curre...tudies.php

You could get all the alt credit done, then enroll and start paying quarterly fees. Then see for sure which courses transfer in before taking the last few courses. 

Things don't work out, maybe pivoting to a PUG Professional Studies degree is a good option.
Course Experience:
Modernstates.org/CLEP, Instantcertcredit, Sophia.org, Study.com, Straighterline.com, Onlinedegree.org, Saylor.org, Csmlearn.com, and TEL Learning

TESU Degree Plans:
Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in CIS  (Capstone Done)
Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science  (Capstone Done)

120+ credits earned with expected graduation September 2021

I graduated with the BSGS w/ ISS concentration so I know what she's referring to. They didn't consider courses in MIS or IS to be programming courses. Additionally, I'd steer clear of using an "Intro to programming course" to satisfy the "Logic" component. But, if you can get them to accept it in writing, go ahead.

Their choices appeared arbitrary, -- the head evaluator changed my course approvals after I asked for a review because my math and political science courses hadn't been credited. But, while correctly crediting the aforementioned courses, she deleted upper-level credit for courses that were previously approved.

So, my experience wasn't ideal but I graduated and have moved on to better things. Wink

"A COSC admissions advisor just confirmed that "most programming courses" satisfy the logic requirement.    Here's a related excerpt from the email conversation:"

 "I was also informed that most programming courses will satisfy the logic requirement as would a general logic course typically found in mathematics or philosophy departments (such as our MAT 115).  That’s the most I can do if you have questions about non-Charter Oak courses."

COSC's course MAT 115

Is almost exactly like this study.com course
https://study.com/academy/course/humanit...lysis.html

That would be easier than taking a programming course.

I cant believe they think they can compete with other RA institutions if they will force students to take a lot of courses from them. Most of people are signing up to get COSC degrees due to ability to take only 2 courses from them. Which cuts off costs tremendously. Dont know what they r thinking ...... people will go somewhere else...

"Most". The devil's in the details. It can be left to interpretation. I was advising the OP and others that if what COSC said about programming courses being used to satisfy the Logic component is true, it would be safer to take a pure programming course. Like non-introductory courses titled, C, Java, C++ or Python Programming. But, it depends on what they accept at the time of your evaluation. If they are no longer giving evaluations before enrollment stick to the types of courses I stated.

I sadly advise people to avoid COSC ever since they changed their policies and become very unaccommodating about ACE credits. I just don't think they're a good option at all anymore.
Harvard Extension School - MLA In Progress
U. Isabel I/ENEB - Master of Business & Corporate Communication
COSC - BS Business Admin.
Pierpont C&T - AAS English
Arizona State U - 31 cr
ACE (Straighterline/Sophia/Shmoop/Study.com/TEEX) - 157 cr
NCCRS (Davar) - 15 cr

Thank goodness there are other schools, like UMPI and EC! It's a shame, because I think COSC used to be one of the easiest-to-deal-with schools. I almost chose them, back in the day, before settling on my current degree path. I wouldn't go with them now, though.
In progress:
Pierpont - AAS BOG
TESU - BA Computer Science; BSBA CIS; ASNSM Math & CS; ASBA


Completed:
Sophia (30 courses), The Institutes (old), Study.com (5 courses)
ASU: Human Origins, Astronomy, Intro Health & Wellness, Western Civilization, Computer Appls & Info Technology, Intro Programming
