Regionally accredited college accepting online credit transfer
#1
Hi Everyone,

I am new here. I am planing to get college credits thru Straighterline or Study.com and then transfer to a regionally accredited college so that I can get official credit transcripts from them. Can someone recommend a regionally accredited school which can accept credit transfer from these two websites and also has easy enrollment and lower enrollment fees? Thanks a lot!

I just need to fulfill education requirements from MA Board of Accountancy so I am ok with any schools as long as it is regionally accredited. Thank you guys so much!!

Original Poster, you can add WGU to that list. It's one of the favorites on this site! The Big 3 and WGU are all you need.

There are actually at least a couple of hundred colleges and universities that will accept Straighterline and Study.com credits. TESU and Excelsior are unique in that they charge an enrollment fee. COSC got rid of its enrollment fee and charges a semester fee that's significantly more than what you would find at most other schools. Colleges and universities, normally, do not charge you thousands of dollars just to become a student. The Big 3 do this because they let you transfer in 114-120 credits. 

Excelsior and TESU do make it easier for you to be considered an enrolled student and receive a transcript. All you have to do is pay the enrollment fee. At TESU, you can also take a TECEP to be considered enrolled. Just about every other school requires that you earn at least one credit from them before you can get a transcript. You can't just apply, have your transfer credits accepted, and get a transcript without ever being a student.

Excelsior, TESU, and COSC do have credit banks, but you'd be better off just passing a TECEP so that you can get a regular, TESU transcript.

You may already be aware of this, but MA stipulates specific business and accounting courses that need to be taken if your degree is from a non-AACSB school.

For something this important, you should go to the source, not take somebody else's word or speculation.

https://www.straighterline.com/colleges/

It's possible that a specific college or university might make a change that Straighterline or Study.com is slow to update. Ultimately it is up to the college or university.

The Big3 do not "charge thousands of dollars just to become a student". I'm not sure where that came from. You can graduate from all of them for far less than other schools charge. TESU does let you choose to pay a residency fee if you don't want to take a minimum number of courses, but that's better than most schools that insist you take a minimum number of courses with no other option.
