Journey Thread -- BS Cybersecurity
#11
Since Hodges killed their UPower program, I'm going with WGU. I've sent them my CLEP, ACE, CompTIA, ISC2 and B&M transcripts. Holding off on DSST transcript until I take MIS. Hoping to start 6/1, but Pierpont conferral isn't until 5/12, and I have to send the transcripts after conferral happens. If I have to wait until 7/1, I can live with that. Going to try to knock it out in one semester. Taking the CISA (13 credits) 4/16 (and sending transcripts when I'm certified). May also attempt the 4 MTA exams that count towards the degree between 4/16 and 6/1.

Got a preliminary pass on the CISA this morning. I have to wait for ISACA to officially grade it, then show my relevant work experience. I should have the official designation in about 6 weeks. 13 credit hours down for WGU :-) .
