In progress:
Pierpont - AAS BOG

I asked COSC if I have to do the cornerstone as a second degree student and that's what they said:

"All undergraduate students are required to take the Cornerstone course, at Charter Oak State College. Additionally, undergraduate students preparing to graduate with a bachelor's degree must complete a concentration or major capstone course at Charter Oak State College with a grade of "C" or higher."

Well that's a bummer.  They call it a "foundational course" that must be taken in the first term, after English Comp 1 but before English Comp 2.  So it's silly to have someone with a bachelor's degree have to take this course.

Ok, so here are revised prices:

COSC $2,848 (cornerstone & capstone - confirmed)
EC $3,710 (capstone only - NOT confirmed)
TESU $5,097 (capstone only - confirmed)
TESU BSBA/HR 2018 - WVNCC BOG AAS 2017 - GGU Cert in Mgmt 2000
EXAMS: TECEP Tech Wrtg, Comp II, LA Math, PR, Computers  DSST Computers, Pers Fin  CLEP Mgmt, Mktg
COURSES: TESU Capstone  Study.com Pers Fin, Microecon, Stats  Ed4Credit Acct 2  PF Fin Mgmt  ALEKS Int & Coll Alg  Sophia Proj Mgmt The Institutes - Ins Ethics  Kaplan PLA

Oh snap! I thought they would omit the cornerstone for COSC. Oh well, the other options aren't bad either, someone should email Excelsior and find out, they have a free application going on if you already have some courses from ACE partners such as Sophia, StraighterLine, Study.com and even NCCRS such as Onlinedegree.com - I would say apply to each college to see where you stand, whichever gives you the "degree" with the cheap/easy/fast all factored in would be the one with greatest ROI/Value.

Really thinking hard about getting a second Bachelors degree in all of the Mathematics & Science that I studiously avoided when I did the initial BA in Liberal Studies.
BA Liberal Arts in 2014 from Excelsior College.
Certificate in Writing in 2018 from University of Washington.

Perhaps, this is one of my dumber ideas?

I wouldn't say that. But you might want to start a new thread of your own about that. You might get a better response. Smile

Nah, learning anything that intrigues you isn't dumb at all, I would take any of the usual cheap/free options for learning purposes and for lower level or upper level credit. You can also try your hand at the COSC Individual Studies or Liberal Studies with a couple of science concentrations if you wanted to go for a second degree (all the sciences count except for computer science). Learn what you want to learn, even if it may seem dumb or weird at the moment...
