Also have experince in IT (systems, networks, database, report writing, data analysis, software development) and accounting system setup and administration.  How do I get credit for this experience


I'm not trying to be rude, but everything your asking has been cover already, do a quick search on the forum and you'll find a ton of information. I'm now taking my capstone to finish my BSBA-CIS, and found all of the information on here, do some searching and if you have specific questions please feel free to come back and ask.

There's an excel sheet that's has excellent information where you can test out of a lot of course, given your background you probably would be able to do alot of them.

You'll need to send in your transcript to the school of your choice to see what credits will be accepted, and then follow the excel sheet from there.

I have a degree plan for the BSBA CIS that is helpful.  TESU probably won't take your certs, which is a bummer.

BUT, I think that you may want to look at a WGU degree as well.  It looks like your credits may fit into their IT or BSBA plans, and you can test out of quite a bit there.  They do take certs, though, and that's very helpful.  And, their degrees are lighter in Gen Ed's and heavier in the major (about a 25/75 split instead of a 50/50 split like most schools), and it sounds like you could more quickly get an IT degree at WGU with your experience.

If you want credit for your experience, basically, it's all done through PLA (Prior Learning Assessments ), they take at least 3-4 months of you documenting and validating your experience through various means - in essence, it's time consuming. It would be wise to only PLA the Area Of Study in the degree.

In terms of transferring your credits over, which school did you obtain those courses from? If my guess is correct, that's from WGU. Why not continue with WGU and get a Bachelors in IT with them? I understand that WGU may not be right for everyone (yes, I've read horror stories on Reddit and Techexams), but it's a very good school in my opinion.

My recommendation is to continue with WGU, I've said this before - tough it out for the remainder of that degree. If you look past their "shortcomings", you'll be in their for graduation at a faster pace than at TESU - cheaper/easier as well. The other non profit alternative to WGU would be Hodges Upower ASCIT, ladder to BS CIT program.
