Help with a degree plan/options
#1
My 23 year old son needs some help here. He graduated high school with AS from NMJC, spent some time in the Army and is now ready to do something else. He is like many other 23 year old dudes in that he has no idea what he wants to do. He is ready accelerate his education and move into, uh, something. Probably some sort of management. 

He has applied to a few local adult degree programs UIW Adult and a really cool one here South Texas College. I am hoping that they give him the maximum transfer crdits possible but we shall see. I personally prefer the STC competency program but we shall see. 

If anyone has any ideas I'd love to hear them. Otherwise, I am seeking info on the Big 3 and would appreciate your feedback.

Obviously there is some overlap with a few courses.

Thoughts?

He prefers coursework to exams as a is not the best test taker.

If I was your son, I would continue to do what's working - so more courses through NMJC, SL, PF, ALEKS, Study.com, etc.  You'll need UL courses, I would suggest Study.com for those, it's a pretty easy route.

Here's a degree plan for TESU's BSBA.  There are other options for COSC & EC, as well as WGU that are all worth looking at, but I'm kind of sticking to what I know best.

Wow! Thank you so much for that! I really appreciate it!
