Statistics.com ? BS Data Science and Analytics TESU
#1
Hello guys! I have a pretty basic question: How does statistics.com work exactly? 
Background: Essentially I have most of the Gen. Ed. requirements for TESU done and on an ACE transcript. I have yet to apply to TESU and I was originally planning on a Math Degree, but I found the Data Science degree and I think that would be more beneficial to me. 

The BS for Data Science and Analytics with TESU has basically all its course through statistics.com and I'm interested in potentially pursuing that rather than a BA in Math. What should I expect? Is it self-paced like SL or Sophia or is it like an actual class? How long are courses usually? Is it flexible? And if I were to do courses through them for TESU, could I put statistic.com's courses on a transcript with ACE and after I complete most of them, then apply to TESU? 

I'm not sure what exactly a wise course of action here would be, so any information or advice/tips would be super helpful and appreciated. Thank you!

If you read the stuff at statistics.com, these appear to be actual courses. I'm not sure how self-paced it is and I don't know if anyone here has actually gone that route. I was interested in this route myself, but I think you'd still have to pay TESU the tuition waiver. That makes it a rather expensive option. Probably worth it, if you're trying to get into that field, but not cheap either.

They are not self paced. If you look on the website you will see the courses have start and end dates. They are 4 weeks long I believe. They are also a lot more money than study.com, etc. The BS data science is expensive or at least more expensive than liberal studies.

People on this fourm have done that degree through.

For all the AOS courses, they are 4 weeks long. It's not flexible, since you have to take them during the scheduled dates. 

You don't have a GPA associated with the courses, they all transfer in as CR, but there is no capstone. You send them to ACE and then they get counted towards your TESU AOS, so I don't see why this would be an issue. I enrolled with TESU first though so can't say for sure.

I managed to get all my statistics.com courses done between June 2019 and January 2020 so still doable within a shorter timeframe, and at one point I did take 4 courses at a time while working... but I wouldn't recommend this unless you have prior exposure. I was a bit burnt out after all this.

Hi, did you already have work experience with statistics or data science? Were you working full time? What was the per course workload like?

I was considering doing the BS Data Science but it seemed like it would be difficult to manage while working full time, with no previous statistics / data science experience without adding a lot more time before my final graduation.

No work experience with data science and statistics specifically, but worked a lot with Python through summer research and work projects... not so much with R but it wasn’t too awful. If I’m not mistaken, there are classes in Excel you can choose to take if programming isn’t your strong suit, but in terms of scheduling so that you can graduate quickly, it may hold you back a bit. There was a SQL class and I have taken two SQL courses before I started and used it at work regularly. Also picked up on it in my free time so I wasn’t completely unfamiliar. I ended up sitting in on a graduate-level Data Mining course at a local university in my spare time, which helped with a few of my courses. I was working full-time the entire time.

Each course is 4 weeks long, one assignment per week plus a final assignment I believe. I definitely remember some of my assignments being pretty in-depth, but when I took the courses they were generous because they understood the needs of working individuals and allowed you to miss one assignment.

Might be a bit of a challenge without experience though. Not impossible, but you would definitely have to at least have some familiarity with Excel, coding or math.
