SOS-110 course at TESU and Ethic Course Requirement
#1
Hi Everybody,

Nice to meet you guys!
I am still taking a number of courses at my current institutions, and also at SL, study.com. So I did not start my application at TESU. If possible, could you please answer me the following questions if you have prior experience (since I cannot talk to an academic advisor at TESU yet):

1.    I probably will transfer 110 credits (from multiple institutes) to TESU for my bachelor degree. My question is: In such a case, do I still need to take SOS-110 Critical Information Literacy? I saw some of posts saying that this course has to be taken anyway, and has to be taken at TESU. Please confirm.

2.    The second question is regarding to ethics course requirement. I saw some of posts saying that TESU is no longer accepting credits from ethics institute. My question is: I plan to take Business Ethics course at SL, can this course be used for fulfilling the ethics course requirement at TESU? I did not see the equivalent course on the TESU degree requirement list, i.e. on list of B. Civic and Global Leadership Courses (Ethical Leadership). But some posts indicated that TESU only listed the courses that TESU itself is offering, so I just want to double check the most up-to-date information.

3.    Any other ethics course I can take? I do not have a budget issue, and I just want it to be as easy as possible….I choose SL because as long as I can get 70% in the quiz part, I do not need to worry the final part, which I like.  Please advise if you know any better option.
 
I really appreciate your inputs!

1) Yes, you are required to take the SOS-110 Critical Information Literacy course, it's a very easy college readiness course - the Cornerstone. You need to take this in addition to the Capstone. All other courses can be transferred in to meet degree requirements.

2) StraighterLine is a good option, I took it through StraighterLine as well for the exact same reason, I got a pretty good score before hitting the final with an above average grade, and still came out with an A. There are other options, but I chose this for simplicity sake.

3) If you're strapped for cash, you can take the Saylor course for $25 but I don't like using their system. Here's the course name: POLSC221: Introduction to Comparative Politics and it should still be valid as the website indicates it's still got the ACE Recommendation for credit. https://www.saylor.org/credit/

If you already bought the subscription with StraighterLine, I would just finish it there. For you, it shouldn't be that much extra work to finish at StraighterLine, but for whatever reason, you're having issues with StraighterLine, then the InstantCertCredit course is the one I would recommend, it's just $20+$15 proctoring fee. If you need other courses that are offered by InstantCertCredit, take them!
