Starting from scratch, where to begin?

I just start with the English pre college course from Saylor.(not for credits just to prepare) Are there (free) credit courses which are not for all the big 3 valid?

One of the nice things about using alternative credit is that if you don't pass your TOEFL, you can still gather credit while you study to raise your score.
NanoDegree: Intro to Self-Driving Cars (in prog)
Coursera: Stanford Machine Learning (in prog)
TESU: BA in Comp Sci
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:Anthro, Pers Fin, Astronomy (2014); CLEP:Intro to Soc (2014); to Computers (2014); CC: 69 units (1980-88)

Yes but i have to pass it before i can send my transcript for evaluation. So if i never get a good score, i never get a degree. Thats why i first need to take my toefl.
Your TOEFL has nothing to do with your evaluation. TESU will evaluate your previously earned credits even if you are not formally enrolled. I think TESU offers two evaluations before enrolment. You need your TOEFL to actually enrol. In my experience, it is not so difficult to get a 79 on TOEFL iBT. There are 4 sections, each worth 30 points. You are basically aiming to get a 20 in each. It is entirely possible. You just need good practice.
TESU BALS-Psych. + ASNSM(Math): 124 Cr.

TEEX(6): Cybersecurity 101/201/301
The Institutes(2): Ethics
Sophia(2): Essentials of Managing Conflict, Dev. Effective Teams
NFA(1): Comm. Safety Edu.
GED(10): NAS-131, SOC-273, MAT-121, HUM-101 (1) Intro to Psych., Soc. Psych.-1, Growth & Dev. Psych., Personality Psych., History & Systems of Psych., Org. Theory, Library Science, Comm. at Workplace, Intro to World Religion, I/O Psychology, Ethics in Social Sciences, Org. Comm., Eng. 104, Eng. 105, History of Vietnam war, Special Ed. History & Law, Differentiated Ed., Classroom Management, Foundations of Ed., Abnormal Psych., Research methods in Psych., College Math, Intro. to Geometry., Calculus (6).
Saylor (15): Intro. to Molecular & Cellular Biology, Comparative Politics, Corporate Comm., Env. Ethics, Principles of Comm. 
TESU (1): Cornerstone, Lib. 495 Capstone.
CSM (3): Quant. reasoning. 
Aleks (6): Trigonometry, Intro to Statistics. 
Thank you u didnt know that. If i apply and send a transcript. Do i pay for every time i send a transcript in to the same university?
You need to get all your transcripts evaluated course by course first, this is not done by the university, you'll need to pay and follow the instructions of the company (
After that you'll need to send that course-by-course evaluation and probably also the transcripts, but I'm not sure about that, to the all institutions of your choice.

I'm pretty sure you'll have to pay for each evaluation, the most important is you get your transcripts evaluated course-by-course as soon as possible. TESU (and others) will not evaluate international transcripts without this third-party course-by-course evaluation.
And they use not all the same evaluation company.
ECE is accepted by all Big 3, WES is not accepted by EC (no comms I suppose). Perhaps you could convince EC as they do accept WES for graduate level.
Which one uses another evaluation company?
EC was the one. It is so hard to find out everything. I hope its worth the hassle Smile

EC need a Subject Analysis where others need a course by course.
