LL Coming in as UL COSC
#1
Hi everyone,

Thanks for all of the information everyone has provided here. Just waiting for one more transcript to come it then I will just need the cornerstone, capstone and a couple more UL classes for a Bachelors from COSC. My plans had to change many times due to policy changes and life but I am almost done. 

I recently got back a pretty surprising evaluation from COSC. In particular, I got awarded UL credit from a few courses that ace evaluates as LL. Since there are not as many COSC evaluations posted as there are for TESU, I thought it may be helpful for others in the future. I sent it a fairly Shmoop heavy ace transcript for evaluation. The classes are mind-numbing but the price is hard to beat. I focused on Shmoop classes that had similar names as UL COSC classes for the off chance of them coming in as UL credit. 

I know that COSC usually applies credits close to the ace recommendation so I didn't expect much, but I won't complain about the results. Would be nice to see some more COSC evaluations to see if this was just a fluke or if they have made some changes. Victorian Literature, in particular, has been posted on this forum as LL credit in the past so I am curious. 

Hope this helps, would love to hear what everyone thinks

Congratulations on being so close! Thanks for posting this. Is this for a BA in liberal arts?
I was thinking about planning a COSC degree for my husband and I find their website confusing and hard to figure out what is required for different degrees.

OP, if you still have a StraighterLine subscription, you can take Organizational Behavior course as that'll come in as UL. Otherwise, another option is to go for the Study.com UL courses as per their transfer tab, you can take Organizational Behavior here if you don't have a valid StraighterLine membership.

One more thing you can do is look at possible CLEP/DSST or other exams from their Master List to finish off the degree.

This is for a BS in Individualized Studies with a yet to be determined concentration. A BA in Liberal Studies would have a similar plan. A BS requires 60 liberal art credits and a BA requires 90 liberal art credits. I got more than enough for a BA but felt like a BS sounded better. The only difference between Individualized Studies and Liberal Studies is that all of the classes in the Liberal Studies concentration will be liberal arts classes. Individualized Studies allows for a broader range of classes for the concentration.

Thank for the advice! I actually have English Comp II, Intro to Communication, and Organizational Behavior coming over on a SL transcript right now. I took your advice on another post to take Business Ethics and Organizational Behavior and really appreciate that by the way.
