So... Is that for Nuclear Engineering Technology or for History like he asked?

That's not a dig, I'm just honestly curious because I see quite a bit of History classes in there too. Are you minoring in History?

If that track "is" for History, why on God's green earth would you need calculus?!?

Here is my evaluation. TESC is taking forever to update it so it is a little out of date, so I will do a quick "personal" update of the test that are missing. The bold courses have not been taken yet, and are just to show you were some of the test/classes will fall into. I hope this helps. If you have any questions feel free to let me know.

At one time I was comparing the two for that very major. I found that with TESC, I could have tested out of the entire degree, but it would have been more expensive to go through them. ( I don't live in NJ.) With Excelsior, I would have needed a Historiography class for sure (there is no exam for that one), and maybe one or two more. Its been a while since I researched this. I finally decided a liberal arts degree would suffice for my needs, saved the dough, and went with EC.

The degree I posted above was for Nuclear Engineering, not History but I am open to getting a second degree. I absolutely love history but I want to finish this degree first, since the majority of my credits came from my training. I took alot more exams then have been applied but overall, I'm happy.
