Officially a CISA. 13 credits down once WGU figures out how I can get proof of the cert to them.

That link doesn't mention ISACA.

WGU has proof of CISA. I've also sent the transcripts for the 2 MTA exams I took over the weekend.

Although I sent a request for transcripts for Pierpont on 5/5 and asked them to hold them until my degree conferred (5/11), they hand't sent anything to WGU on 6/4. I emailed PCTC on 6/5 and CC"ed Ms. Parks, and they supposedly mailed out transcripts on 6/6. Here's to hoping everything gets to WGU by 6/15 so I can start on 7/1.

Reminder to self: Ping HR about tuition reimbursement.

For anyone following this thread:

https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...ranscripts

You'll know that Pierpont's BOG AAS is effectively useless for getting a block GenEd transfer, since they refuse to supply transcripts for their BOG AAS degree. This after almost three months of them telling me they had sent transcripts. My EC at WGU recommended I request an exclusion for Pierpont, which I did on Monday.

As much as I've raved about the WV BOG AAS and Pierpont, if you're planning on continuing your education past the AAS, I can no longer in good conscience recommend getting this degree. For me, it ended up being a time sink AND useless...

The exclusion request went through, and it looks like I'll be able to start on 9/1. They also (accidentally) evaluated me for a BS NOS. On that eval, they counted The Institutes class as Critical Thinking and Logic, so I challenged it on my current eval. Hoping everything gets straightened out and I start next month at 50% (61 CUs of 122).

Pushing back the start date to 10/1. I don't want to take the CCSP as I pay ISC2 enough money already. The other option is the CCSK, according to my eval from WGU. The CCSK has the advantage of being an open book test that is "for life" (no annual fees or continuing credits required). Also, you get 2 attempts at the test for $349. Work will pay for it, so worth waiting one more month. I'm also taking the MIS DSST next week (to avoid taking the boring and useless ITIL exam).

Also, The Institutes did NOT count for Critical Thinking, so I'll have to take that class. From what I've been reading, though, I can likely knock it out in a couple of days, so no biggie.

My boss signed my tuition reimbursement application today. This finally feels like it's happening :-)
