Just wondering, did you get your courses evaluated by COSC/TESU and WGU?
Which one of the Big 3/WGU gave you the most credits for transfer?

You're missing the following: 28 credits total, 6 Upper Level
You need specifically - English Comp II, Ethics, Natural Science, Info Lit, Capstone
The rest can be LL General Arts/Science courses

The cheapest/easiest/fastest to take for UL would be their own UL UExcel courses
You can try asking them which Study.com courses would work for UL if you want to take some from them.

Note: You may want to decide on which school to "finish" the degree from, go with the school with the most credits transferred or the school with the easiest remaining courses to complete.

So I am only missing 28? What about the top portion labeled “Arts and Sciences”. That says I need 22 credits.

Yes, the total degree requires an extra 28 credits. 22 of them are going to be arts/sciences (LL) and 6 UL which is just two courses, your capstone should be part of the 6 UL credits, so technically, all you need to do is "Find" the UExcel exam you want that's UL and they've got several to choose from.

I searched your previous thread posts, it seems you applied to the Big 3 and WGU, did you get evaluations from them? If so, which school has the most credits for you or the least amount of courses required remaining? If Excelsior is the school, continue with them, if not, then find which one gives you the better deal - cheapest/easiest/fastest to the finish line.

Thanks a million. As you can see I have been back and forth a million times whether to move forward with my degree for years. Hahah Honestly, this is the least amount by far that I have to do. I really thought I had a lot more to do.

Still shocked. I thought I only had 108 total credits to begin with. Oh well, if it says only 28 than I am extremely happy.

*sigh, using an ipad sucks, back to the computer* There was a missing line in my replies. You still need to do the 22 credits. So in total, you need 50. You are correct, you need 22 credits arts/sciences in addition to those 28. But there are easy credits to snatch up quickly.

Get 44 credits cheap for $9/3 credit course at onlinedegree.com from home, take everything from them as long as it doesn't duplicate your courses, and do the 3 UL capstone/3 UL UExcel. I recommend these as they are easier to pass, you get 10% for attendance, 50% for quizzes, and the final is only worth 40% - you need a cumulative 70% to pass.

If you are great with exams and very close to a test center, take the CLEPS/ModernStates as it's FREE. You just need to use their resources and maybe get some extra free resources from a local library. Study and pass the exams - again, chose the ones that don't duplicate your current credits.
