Unfortunately, it's not likely that he could get any of those exam based tests completed in the next week or so to meet the deadline for March graduation.
So that just leaves the Study.com options. Like Math 102, 107, or 101 (College Math, Quantitative Literacy, or the College Algebra/Intermediate Algebra course). It sounds like the Intermediate Algebra course is out though based on his earlier comment.

Why couldn't he go take the Applied Liberal Arts Math DSST tomorrow? If he's taken and passed Math 97, he can probably pass the DSST. Now. It's certainly worth a shot. I found the TECEP to be the easiest math test I've taken in YEARS  easier than even ALEKS Beginning Algebra back when they had it for credit.
Study.com's courses may work as well  especially if you use the placement test to "test out" of a big portion. Use the placement tests for both College Math and College Algebra to test out of as much as humanly possible.

I suppose he could, assuming he has access to a local test center, they are offering that test tomorrow, and he can get in on the list.
I know it varies, but every testing center I've ever gone to either had a specific schedule for test days or was open by appointment only, and you had to register well in advance for whatever day you intended to sit for exams. Preregistration was also required since space was limited and not all tests are available on each day (some did CLEP on one day and DSST on another for example). Then again, I am sure there are some test facilities that are open every day without a wait list, so that could be a good option if he can find one.
Though he also mentioned that he struggled with Math 97, so it might not necessarily be a course he could just sit down and take tomorrow without prep. Particularly if he barely passed the SDC version. It shouldn't take that much prep time though if it is as easy as the TECEP.
Personally, I found I could get through an SDC course much more quickly than the time it took me to study for a CLEP/DSST exam. But I haven't tried to take any math related exams. And my experience wouldn't count anyway since I have dyscalculia so most math tests are a struggle for me, even when I know the subject matter.

Considering that I struggled to even pass Math 97, that's a bit of an understatement.
I have another appointment with my advisor next week, but I don't think I'm going to wait that long. Back in the day, I found Geometry easier than Algebra, and I'm also going to check out the SDC Quantitative Literacy class. I've been in the business world for so long, that I'm hoping it might help me get through that one faster.
I had to really push my advisor to allow the SDC/UExcel Social Psychology tandem to count as completing the 6 unit requirement, so I don't know that I'll be able to successfully petition him again to accept Math 97.
That doesn't mean I won't try though...
Better safe than sorry I suppose. My advisor told me to notify the registrar that this last class would come in late, but it would come in, and they will likely allow it. Of course, I don't know how late, "late" actually is.

Having done the Math 97 course, the Geometry was about a third completed. I did most/all of the studying for it in one day and then took the final immediately. (I finished the final at 12:15am!) The final was a bit rough  I'm not entirely sure if it was because I was brain dead at that point or because the test itself was rough. Either way, I passed. So it's doable to do it quickly if needed and it will work for my requirement for the BALS. So that's another option for those who hate algebra and the like. It was decently tolerable.
Will TESU accept the SDC Geometry 101 course for the GE requirement? The SDC / TESU equivalencies web page shows it transferring in as MAT260 to TESU:
https://study.com/directory/school/Thoma...ransferTab
...which isn't listed as an acceptable class under the GE Quantitiative Literacy requirements on the TESU website:
https://www.tesu.edu/academics/courses/2016andafter2
Yes, the SDC Geometry 101 will work for the Quantitative Literacy requirement. I made sure to check with my academic advisor and it is preplanned into my degree for that slot!

Testing centers are all different  some require scheduling in advance, while others let you walk in.
Applied Liberal Arts Math is literally the easiest math test I've taken in my life as an adult. There were things like fractions, percentages, and very basic algebra I stuff. After taking Math 97, I think he could easily pass the exam. I think it's probably 6th8th grade level math. Now, yes, if you have dyscalculia, or it's been 25 years since you've cracked open a math book, it might be a bit more difficult  but really, I think it's crazy easy, and I'm not a math whiz by any stretch. Since Nodaclu did take a math course recently, his chances of passing this exam are very high.

If this class doesn't work for me, I just want to be sure that TESU will accept all other SDC math courses for the Quantitative Literacy requirement?
SDC refused to put it on my transcript because TESU supposedly no longer accepts it. So it didn't even get sent over. If I want it added to the transcript, I have to specifically tell them to include it from now on.
Hmm, when did SDC start filtering transcripts? There are a lot of SDC courses that TESU doesn't officially reflect in a transfer agreement yet they do accept. I would expect them to always send over everything since even if TESU doesn't accept it now, they can change their mind at any time.
If it were me, I'd ask Study.com to just send everything. You paid for it, you should be able to send it. If TESU doesn't accept it, you can either ask for clarification or challenge since it was accepted until recently, or just accept it and move on to another course, but you'll know for sure one way or the other.
If TESU doesn't take it you could always try taking the Liberal Arts Math TECEP since you already passed Math 97 and that TECEP should cover similar material. SDC also offers a specific study course for that TECEP that you can use as a refresher if needs be.
I have math issues myself, so I can understand where you're coming from. I ended up using ALEKS since you can work up to the level you need, up to College Algebra & Precalculus anyway. I think pretty much anyone can earn math credits that way.
Alternatively, you could try to take one of the other easier math courses on Study.com, like Math 102 (comes in as MAT102: General Math I), though I'm not 100% sure what math you need for your degree. Next easiest would probably be Math 101 (comes in as MAT115: Intermediate Algebra). So Mat101 College Algebra from Study.com will not fulfilling the Quantitative Literacy requirement for TESU for the BABA General Mgmt track? I know it states needing college algebra and statistics at the end of the document. Does that mean I need to take MAT107 instead to fulfill the Quantitative Literacy requirement?

I’m just confused I guess. For the BSBA General Mgmt degree from TESU do I need to take Mat107, which will transfer in as Mat119 or not? I see on the TESU site College Algebra and Statistics will fulfill Quantitative literacy but do I need the TESU class transfer to Mat119 specifically? My goal was to only take Mat101. College Algebra and Statistics 101 for all my math to complete the BSBA Gen. Mgmt degree. Do I need a third math (Mat107)?

If you want to use Study.com courses to meet your BSBA Quant Lit requirement, you can either take Math 105 (Precalculus Algebra) which transfers to TESU as MAT121 (College Algebra), or you can take Math 107 (Quantitative Literacy) which transfers to TESU as MAT119 (Quantitative Business Analysis).
In addition, you'll also need to take a statistics course, such as SDC's Statistics 101 (Principles of Statistics).
Alternatively, you could take comparable courses at any other provider. I used ALEKS for all my math courses (College Algebra, Precalculus, and Statistics).
