What's so hard about EC? The website has a page of what transfers into EC and what it transfers in as.

BS Organizational Leadership - CSU Global - in progress  - may be transferring to WGU into the BS Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing

AAS Business Administration - local community college
AS Individual Studies - local community college

Sophia: Environmental Science, Developing Effective Teams, The Essentials of Managing Conflict, College Algebra (in progress)

Planning on using SL and SDC in the future

Or maybe it isn't that hard. I guess its just that ECs degrees in general are more tricky to plan where as TESU is very straightforward. But I guess I didn't realize the gen eds are pretty easy to plan out.

Not sure what's so hard about planning with EC's degrees. Their catalog is online on their website. Sophia has a webpage that shows what transfers and how it transfers in.

Study.com also has an EC page for transfer credits.

https://study.com/college/school/excelsior-college.html

EC's own website has guides for degree completion using Study.com.

https://www.excelsior.edu/partner/study-com/

It's not hard. It's probably just a matter of looking around and knowing what you're searching for while using the correct terminology. The info is definitely out there, but if you're unfamiliar with EC I can see how it may be a bit more challenging since you have to do the looking around. But it is college after all. We're supposed to be able to find out information. Smile

EC does not always give course equivalency numbers, while TESU does. So it is easier to plan, and easier to figure out if courses duplicate. But this post is specifically about TESU, so I don't want to get off track.

So the only Sophia courses that TESU doesn't bring in are the foundations courses: algebra, English composition, and statistics.

27 courses.

Credits: Business: 10. English & Communication: 16. Humanities: 15. Math: 15. Social Science: 18. College Readiness: 3.

Total credits available: 77.

There aren't always course equivalents. That's why EC doesn't list them. They tell you which type of elective they will come in as. What more could you ask for?
