[attachment=2968 Wrote:dfrecore pid='298918' dateline='1573072594']WGU is probably the fastest option, and with your experience, you may be able to complete a lot of credits in a short amount of time to get to something like 60-70, then enroll at WGU and slam through your courses quickly.

With the Big 3, you have to take the coursework to get to 114cr, then enroll in the cornerstone and capstone, which will take time.

With all of the degrees, the NUMBER of credits you already have isn't as important as WHERE those credits will fit into a degree plan.  If you took a bunch of math courses, for example, it won't help a ton in any of the degrees (it will help some).  But if you took the right math courses, then that's great, and helpful for all of the degrees (college algebra & stats for instance).

Thank you so much for your wisdom, it has been extremely helpful.  I am feeling WGU may be the way to go.  I received my transfer eval back from them yesterday.  I've attached the eval (hope I did that correctly).  I also had a discussion with a rep from SL and feel that will be my best bet as far as my learning style to get up to 89 before I move on to WGU.  Any additional wisdom would be much appreciated!

If you complete 4 courses through Straigterline (SL) WGU has a scholarship you would qualify for ($500 per term)

Here is what they have as a transfer agreement SL/WGU: https://www.straighterline.com/colleges/...niversity/

Here is the link to their courses that shows if their final exam is open book or not.

Never2Late2Learn - Is that you BigAl2019? Late reply, have you decided on which school you're going to attend? Is it one of the Big 3 or WGU? In any case, suggestion is to get the most of your credits completed before enrolling in COSC/EC/WGU. In fact, most of the courses you will do will go to the Big 3/WGU without issues. Have you decided on your concentration or are you going for the BSBA General Management concentration?
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**
