Help With Academic Plan
#1
Good Morning Everyone, How are you all doing today.

I am looking for some insights on how to best complete my Requirements to get my degree in the fastest cheapest way possible. I would like to test out of many Subjects as Possible. I'm including my Evaluation from Excelsior below.

This is my plan so far,

BS IN 1 TERM


36 Lower Level Credit needed.

I want to test out out of everything possible , so below i have all the DSST and CLEP Courses I plan on taking.

1 Social Sciences and History
2 Natural Sciences
3 College Mathematics
4 Principles of Supervision
5 Drug and Alcohol Abuse
6 Criminal Justice
7 Fundamentals of Counseling
8 Here’s to your health
9. Information Systems and Computer App


18 Upper Level Credit needed.

-Now I wanted to take these courses to fulfill my upper level credit Requirements, However when i went into MAP the ones in Red are the only ones I was able to find and add to my Academic Plan. So I would need two other Exams to satisfy the requirements. But where i am really confuse is with the depth, from what I am reading online the depth ca be credits that were brought in, so i feel like i should met that requirement because my original degree from Rutgers University was in HR so i have a ton of Human Resources and Labor Study Courses that I feel should have fulfilled at least one of the depth requirements. Please tell me what you think and all suggestions are welcomes. 

1 World Population
2 Ethics Theory and Practice
3 Management Information Systems (DSST)
4 Organizational Behavior
5 Human Resource Management
6 Labor Relations

Just wondering, have you applied and enrolled at Excelsior College? Are you open to going for a BALS at TESU? My suggestion is to apply to TESU and get your credits evaluated. From a quick glance, you have your BALS Upper Level requirements complete for TESU. You can finish the degree cheap, easy, fast with the alternative ACE/NCCRS providers, or use CLEP/MS.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Comp Sci/Math Double Major (In progress)
Next up: WGU for MSML & MBA ITM (ACBSP - Starting in 2019)
**Deciding on other Masters/PHD programs**

From my experience testing out is the quickest way to get the credits you need fast. Now the time and money can be reasonable if you pass but if you have the extra funds I would use the Test Prep Petersons program. I still have it installed myself and my personal golden rule was if my pre-test is 70% then test out ASAP. I did 1 -2 tests per week in 2010 just from listening to iTunes University for free while I was driving.

I did experiment on straighterline, sophia, aleks, and others using them for only what I already knew and could complete in one day. I took all of my UL classes at my local university because I get bored unless I find it interesting.

I still do this today but much slower now.

Hope this helps.

Itunes University, I've been looking for something like that, since I'm always working. Thank you everyone for your input, what i figured as correct, ill only need to to actually take the capstone and can test out of everything. So i'm using modern states to do as many free clep's as possible and will only have to UEXCEL EXAMS and then i'm home free.

Quick question: how did you find the courses on the iTunes University app and get it to play the Audio? Did you search specifically for CLEP related courses?
