Getting started with BALS (Template Q&A)

This is bcos it costs $ 20 to make the first transfer, and $ 15 for successive transfers. But in this case, you could consider transferring as soon as you complete other TEEX courses. If you only plan to take one course, you should transfer it. TEEX courses expire end of this month, and you want your credits sent in before that.

TEEX courses expire at the end of this month?  Is this dictated by ACE or someone else?  Is this a regular occurrence?  I had no idea!

It's dictated by ACE. Whenever they review a course, and approve it, that approval has an expiration date. It's up to the course provider to get the course renewed before the deadline. Typically, we'll hit these deadlines, then see them extended as the course provider starts to try and get the renewal, but not always.

Actually, you should be fine so long as you complete the courses by the expiration deadline, although it wouldn't be a bad idea to get them onto your ACE transcript immediately. You can send them to TESU when you're ready, that timing won't be affected by the courses expiring.

How can I stay apprised of these expiration deadlines?  Is there a list somewhere?  I will be sure to get the courses added to my ACE transcript as I complete them.
