Help with Degree Plan
#1
I received my degree audit, and, apart from cornerstone and capstone, these are the six courses I have left, along with my best guess for transfer credit:

1. Oral Communication - Sophia Public Speaking
2. English Composition 1 - CLEP or ONU?
3. English Composition 2 - CLEP or ONU?
4. ITE 330 Systems Analysis/Design - Study.com CS302: Systems Analysis & Design
5. ITE 430 Database Mgt and Design - Study.com CS303: Database Management

6. One of the following:
- MGT 460 Project Management - Study.com Business 311: Project Management
- MGT 450 Leadership Practices - Study.com Business 302: Foundations of Leadership
- MGT 451 Team Leadership - ??
- MGT 315 Organizational Behavior - Study.com Business 307: Leadership & Organizational Behavior
- MGT 330 Diversity & Inclusion - ??

My questions are:
- Are there any better options for 1-5?
- Is one of the options for 6 easier than the others?
- Are there any other recommendations?

Do you need additional RA credit (meaning, do you have the 24cr necessary?)? If not, then ONU is a good option for the Composition courses. Otherwise, I'm going to go with the CLEP since it's free through ModernStates, and is one of the easier/faster options.

There are no better options for 4, 5, or 6 than Study.com that I'm aware of. Saylor offers PM, but I know nothing about that course except that it's UL.

@origamishuttle, for some reason I thought you were going with UMPI and their BLS with some concentration, did you just recently switch to COSC?

I don't need more RA credit, so I'll probably go with CLEP too. I'm trying to figure out how/where to actually take it though. Maybe at COSC?

Thank you for the Saylor suggestion, although I looked it up, and it seems like the only upper-level accepted by COSC would be Software Engineering. I'm leaning toward SDC Business 302, but still not sure.

Great question! I'm kind of all over the place at the moment. I may end up working on multiple degrees at the same time.

The CLEP can be done online if you're in the US; if not, then you can take it at any school that offers it.

A quick update:
I found out that I need to transfer the English Composition 1 credits before June 20, and I'm worried about CLEP getting graded in time, so I'm probably going for Sophia instead. Also, I looked into the three business course options at SDC. Project Management has the least quizzes, and only a single PowerPoint assignment, so that looks to be the winner.

I guess that leaves English Composition 2. Would CLEP still be a good option for just Comp 2? Or would I be better off going with ONU, or even SDC?

For English Comp 2, I think that ONU will both be faster and cheaper in the long run than either SDC or Sophia. It being RA is a bonus for COSC, though I think you already have enough RA credits?

Thank you for the suggestion. Comp 2 (English 105) actually looks pretty good at SDC, but I definitely would not consider Comp 2 at Sophia!

I have been curious about ONU for some time, but I haven't actually signed up yet. I guess this would be a good excuse..

Basically, I would just do the CLEP as it will take one exam and essay to complete 6 credits worth...
Once that is done, do the Sophia.org and Study.com courses to finish off the degree requirements for transfer.

I would do that, although I'm worried about the 6/20 deadline. If I take the CLEP and don't pass, then it will be too late to go for another option. I can take more time on English Comp 2 and the other Sophia courses, but the Study.com courses also need to be completed by 6/30, as COSC is dropping transfer for many of these courses as of 7/1.
