My Journey: BA in English from TESU
Ideas Wrote:I'm already doing a double major in Comp Sci and Biology. I don't have much left, but I'm a lot slower with Comp Sci and Biology than other courses. Plus I thought I was going to do English so I spent time on some of those courses.

My ASNSM was Comp Sci and Biology. At the time I didn't think I'd ever do a Bio degree and wasn't sure I would complete the Comp Sci degree as planned.

Good luck with Math!

What!! My first love is Biology, I could not find enough cheapo credits for Biology so I kinda gave up on it for Math and settled on the ASNSM Bio.  Where are you getting the UL Biology courses from?  I was thinking of going the Logan University and APUS route but don't have the cash to pay for school yet.

For BIO, I am missing Cell Biology, Organic Chem I & II w/labs and the 13 elective credits, 12 of them being UL.  The strangest thing is, if I do an evaluation - My LL extra biology courses FIT in the AOS and electives where it specifies, it requires the courses to be 300/400 level.  Does your evaluation do the same thing? Haha...

For MATH, I am missing the same number of courses, but it's easier to find these courses I think, probably cheaper too in the long run.  However, your post is making me think I want the Biology degree more as that is actually more of my interest instead of Math (decisions, decisions...)

I'll spend some time doing a spreadsheet to see which option would be better for me.  BTW, did you get a concentration for your BSBA?  If you did the CIS concentration, you can probably get up to 3 courses or 9 credits moved towards your BA Comp Sci AOS.

WOW, thanks for this.  It just might work for someone who wants to get the English degree.  I'll let a fellow member here (pws) know and have him be the guinea pig to see if it will work or not.  I'll have him email TESU advising...  That's a mighty good find if it works... thanks again!

Since you said "first love", I think you should do it. I will PM you.

I don't know about the evaluation thing you said. I guess you mean unofficial. I have an official eval.

I didn't do CIS as a BSBA concentration, but I did extra CIS courses just because. I think it made things harder because of the "24 new" requirement.

Interesting. I hope that class works for the Non-Western requirement!

According to another thread, HES Poetry in America courses will no longer be very cheap after this summer. Regular registration has already closed for summer, but there's 2 more weeks to register with a late fee. I'm considering taking the one I haven't taken already. It would only take half as long since it's a summer course.
