Hmm, I think those have been up there a while now. I have Principles of Finance on my maybe list from Saylor and it has been on that list for at least a couple months. I also remember calling out Principles of Finance of being the only Saylor course approved as UL by ACE after the TESU crackdown started.

I thought they were former ACPE courses since they were added to ACE at the same time the ACPE courses moved to SAYA designations under ACE. Then again, most of the former ACPE courses are higher numbered, so maybe they were added first.
Goal: BSBA-CIS and ASNSM-CS from TESU by March 2019. (May add BSBA-HR/OM AOS if I end up bumping to June.)

PROGRESS SO FAR (100.66 Cr):
  • B&M CC: American Govt & Inst, Intro to Computing, Intro Astronomy w/Lab [quarter-units]
  • CLEP/DSST: Info Systems (80), A&I Literature (76), Principles of Marketing (75), Management Info Systems (467)
  • ALEKS: College Algebra, Trigonometry, Intro Statistics
  • The Institutes: Ethics 312
  • Sophia.org: Developing Effective Teams, Essentials of Managing Conflict
  • StraighterLine: English Comp I, C++ Programming, Cultural Anthropology, Principles of Management, Intro to Religion, Business Law
  • Study.com: Personal Finance, Presentation Skills, Information Literacy, International Business, Micro & Macroeconomics, Intro Psychology, Human Growth & Development, Social Psychology, Intro Sociology, College Comp II, Business Comm, Principles of Finance, Accounting 101 (in progress)

They've only been approved since 6/1, and ACE usually puts stuff on there as backdated, meaning we haven't seen them on there since 6/1 - it's usually several weeks to a month after the fact.

I never saw a post on here about them being announced, so I thought I'd be the one to do it. And add it to my spreadsheet and my degree plans.

Strategic information, software engineering are no longer UL?

Neither course is ACE recommended as upper level, so should not come in as UL. However, TESU had been evaluating them as upper-level. At least until the changes a few months back. I don't recall seeing any recent evaluations confirming that they're now being evaluated as lower-level, but given the other changes, I'd say chances are high that they are no longer accepted as upper-level credit at TESU now.

As far as I know, the only Saylor course recommended as upper-division by ACE is Principles of Finance (BUS 202).

Ugh! This is so frustrating! I was going to take Saylor Software Engineering as UL, now it seems I'll have to find something else to replace it with. Has anyone taken the Study.com course Database Management (Computer Science 303)?

Studyandpass5 - Um, let me guess - BSBA CIS? What courses do you have planned for your AOS? List them and we'll see if there are any alternatives for you - cheap/easy/fast. Hopefully, there are a few options.
Up Next: NationsU MTS, WGU for MSML & MBA ITM (January 2019)
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)

Don't make the assumption that Saylor's Software Engineering won't come in as UL, get it planned into your academic eval and find out.
TESU BA in Comp Sci completed. 51 units completed in 20 months.
TECEP:Env Ethics (2015); TESU PLA:Software Eng, Computer Arch, C++, Advanced C++, Data Struct (2015); TESU Courses:Capstone, Database Mngmnt Sys, Op Sys, Artificial Intel, Discrete Math, Intro to Portfolio Dev, Intro PLA (2014-16); DSST:Intro to Anthro, Pers Fin, Intro Astronomy (2014); CLEP:Intro to Soc (2014); Saylor.org:Intro to Computers (2014); CC: 69 units (1980-88)
