Why would care about proctoring unless you intend to cheat?

Capella University, Walden, NAU dont have proctored exams and they are even RA. They are self paced competency based.

The problem isn;t the proctoring, i just want it to be open book proctored exam.
For Tesu the fastest possible degree would be June 2020. But this would be almost impossible. You would have to do 100 credits and they them evaluated by the end of January (and remember tesu takes a month to evaluate things) so basically have the work done by December 2020. TThen sign up for the February Capstone and finish the rest of the degree by April. This is NOT REALSTIC AT ALL. I suppose if you were a brilliant test taker you could take multiple clep/dsst in one day with no studying.

For realistically for TESU you are looking at either September 2020 and even that would be a lot of work, stress and you might be pushing it to the wire. December 2020 would be more do able.

It is 2019 and I dont think you can earn a degree in 2 months anymore. Even if you can at WGU it would not be easy by any stretch.
Penn Foster doesn't ship books any longer than I can tell (you get eTextbooks for each course), but they are also not just exams - you have to take an actual course. I took one there a few years ago, it was fine, but not super easy.

Not sure how quickly you can complete the courses or a degree though, especially if you're coming in with zero credits.

I think if that's the case, you're better off doing competency-based somewhere. But that's still a good chunk of time to finish one. I'd say 6 months is the fastest anywhere.

PennFoster doesn't ship books anymore for their degree programs. All resources required are available online.
However, it is not like you jump in and start taking exams. You actually have to finish reading for a course, participate in forum posts, answer and submit assignments/quizzes etc before you can schedule a proctored exam.
I am sorry to say this, but your plan is too ambitious to finish degree in a month. I don't think it is possible, at least here in the USA. Have you looked if a possible option exists in your home country? If so, you might be able to get a course-by-course evaluation done proving your degree (from home country) is equivalent to a 4-year US degree, and this may qualify you for your master's degree.
