Getting Credits Evaluated
#1
Hi Guys, quick question. I am applying for a new job that requires 15 credits of Criminal Justice course work. I have those credits through SDC and SL, the only issue is that they are not evaluated by a college. I need to upload a transcript to show that I have taken the courses. Is there anyway of getting this done? I have not applied to any schools as I wanted to wait till I had more credits. The deadline to apply is the 23rd. They specifically say in the job posting that copy of your degree or college transcripts must be uploaded.

Ouch, good luck with your job hunting. This is my only suggestion as you will most likely not hit any schools that will give you a transcript by that specific time (sad but true). Two options that may make it in time...

Options, 1) Apply to a school (like TESU) and create an ACE account, then send all your ACE credits into the account, from SDC/SL, whatever other ACE providers you have, like the FREE credits (do them all, since it's FREE and worth college credit!) and get them to forward you a copy of your transcript.

Note: I don't think they'll do that for free, you have to pay $20 for the signup and they throw in a free transcript that way to one of the schools you apply to. All subsequent transcripts are $15.

Options, 2) Apply to Excelsior FREE as you have a few courses under SL & Study.com, send all your courses to them for evaluation, get the transcript service from them done for $42 (hopefully, it's $42 total, not per course!). The only draw back is, the evaluation time (gasp, ask them to get your transcript done ASAP and send you a copy of the evaluation)

TESU will take a month minimum from application to evaluation (getting your transcripts onto your account). So I would skip them entirely.

You could try COSC or EC, I know they're much faster with evals.

I think I'd still send them to ACE - besides being a good safeguard in general, you CAN get a transcript from ACE, and that might work. It also might be a bit faster.

Yeah I already have an ACE account and have been banking all my credits there. I guess I will submit my ACE transcript, it can't hurt to try. Thank you for your help!

I'm fairly sure that you won't be able to get transcripts from any of the Big3 unless you either enroll in a degree program or pay for credit banking. So, you're not likely to get them on a college transcript cheaply. If they will accept a printout from your online student account, you could get that just being an applicant, but not an official transcript.

If they apply and then sign up for one the TECEPs, that would work right? It would be cheaper than the Credit banking.
