Yes, TESU is pretty military friendly. But not when it comes to CJ. It would be faster, easier, and cheaper to ignore half your credits and get a UMPI degree than it would be to get a CJ degree from TESU.

Look at what will get you to your goal fastest and easiest, don't fall victim to the sunk cost fallacy and continue looking to the past.

If they don't need a degree in criminal justice and just need a bachelor's degree then the BLS with a minor would be a pretty good option since it has so many elective credits. The OP doesn't have much for UL credit. They need a decent amount of the GEC as well. Almost like starting at the beginning. If they want to hold on to those military credits then maybe Excelsior would be a better option?

Yup, that's what I was thinking, get a BAS with some other minor other than CJ... and if you really want a CJ, do that at the Masters level. Further to that, your BOG AAS at Pierpont should ladder up to a RBA at Marshall or WVU... they need 24 credits residency though... You can always go for a Walden BSCJ, they may take most of those credits and the application is free!

Looking at previous credit is just looking backwards. You want to look forward. Make multiple degree plans (UMPI, EC, TESU) and then figure out which one you can complete most quickly and for the least amount of money.

The best way to think about it is this: let's say TESU gives you 60cr for your previous credits, and then you can get another 30cr for your GE for $2,000; but then it's going to cost $8,000 to get your final 24cr done in the AoS. Then it will be $6,654 for your final 6cr + RW and fees at TESU. The degree will cost $16,654 to complete.

Now, let's say you only get 30cr from UMPI; but it will be fairly cheap at $2,200 to get your GEC; and then you enroll, and take 3 terms to get your BA in CJ for $4,200. That is $6,400 to get your degree.

Even though TESU gave you many more credits, the cost to get those AoS credits is a LOT, and so that matters much more than what they brought in.

Kind of why I was wondering if a degree in criminal justice is really needed or if any bachelor's degree would do. The BLS would give them the most credit as they have mostly general electives from the military. They're in good shape for a BLS not so much for a BA in CJ.

Has anyone successfully transferred FEMA credits from Frederick CC to UMPI? If so, how did they transfer in? Just a random thought that I’ve been wondering about.

Post the course numbers and I'll look it up. What's the full name of the college? I looked up Frederick Community College and nothing is in the database as transferring from there. I haven't seen anything in UMPI transfer literature about accepting FEMA credits.
