TESU - Classes, Credits and What to do? Need Advice.
#1
Can someone please help me with figuring out my classes and where to take them? I am working on a degree from TESU for a BSBA in CIS. I don’t feel I am getting the best information from the advisor. I know you guys will know the best route. I need 10 more credits for the General Education Electives.  I haven’t started my Degree Electives but some classes I have already completed. I am considering switching to Liberal Arts just to finish the degree up. I can just get certified in CIS or Computer Programming from there. I really want the BSBA in CIS. That would make me happy but I don’t want to be stressed over it. Is that a good idea? Please let me know your suggestions. Attached is my new updated advisory of credits. I haven't taken Biology or Environmental Science. 
 
I emailed the advisor the following:
Regarding the General Education Electives, I am considering taking the following courses through Sophia Learning. Please let me know if they will be approved for credit, how many credits I must fulfill, and in what areas.
 
Taking Charge of Your Economic Future (3)
Project Management (3)
Taking Charge of Your Economic Future (3)
Project Management (3)
Ancient Greek Philosophers (3)
 
I am aware I can take one of these Human Biology and/or Environmental Science for General Electives.
  
Will either or both of these courses apply to my Core:
 
Introduction to Relational Databases (3)
Introduction to Web Development (3)
 
 
She responded with:
Unfortunately, none of the options listed are approved for general education or Natural World. The only option that may work is the Sophia course, Ancient Greek Philosophers, but its ACE recommendation for credit has expired. If it's not renewed for credit, then we can't accept it in transfer.

The ancient greek course has been renewed until 2024 so you're good to take it.

Please see the following pages on the wiki: https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/Sa...ts_Roadmap and https://degreeforum.miraheze.org/wiki/So...lency_List

Taking Charge of Your Economic Future comes in as a free elective. The BSBA CIS has 6 free electives available. However, I really strongly recommend taking this class even if it doesn't fit into any available slot in your degree plan. There is a ton of good information in this course.
In progress:
Pierpont - AAS BOG
TESU - BA Computer Science; BSBA CIS; ASNSM Math & CS; ASBA


Completed:
Sophia (30 courses), The Institutes (old), Study.com (5 courses)
ASU: Human Origins, Astronomy, Intro Health & Wellness, Western Civilization, Computer Appls & Info Technology, Intro Programming

Pause for a second, decide on the degree, I would finish all the general education electives if you can't decide on a degree yet as both a BALS/BSBA will require the same general education requirements. But do not go any further, you want to make sure you're taking courses that go towards either of the degrees before continuing...

Last time we talked, you needed to figure out where 18 of your 30 RA credits were coming from. Did you do that yet? You have 6 from previous institution and will get another 6 from TESU (cornerstone/capstone).
COMPLETED: BSBA OpMgmt - TESU June 2021

AP Tests: 20 credits | APICS: 12 Credits | CLEP: 6 credits Saylor Academy: 6 credits
Sophia.org: 27 credits | Study.com: 12 credits | Davar Academy: 3 credits
TESU: 15 credits | Other College: 99.5 credits

You should have a plan first on how to get the remaining RA credit.  There is a 90 credit transfer limit on non-RA credit so you don't want to get more than you need.

If you do the TESU flat rate, then 16 credits will be RA through TESU.
Your classes would be:
SOS 101 info lit.
Capstone
Critical thinking (suggestion for General electives)
Easy course (suggestion for General electives)
Intro Marketing  (One of your open spots for Bus Core)
PLA-100  (1credit course)

If you get the full Pell Grant, then it's the cheapest to do 3 terms which take 9 months.  Paying for classes at full-cost 1 at a time would cost the most. 

So considering you are doing RA credit, then you wouldn't need any more Sophia GE Electives courses.

Another option is TECEP exams which if you need a total of 18 RA, you would need to take at least 1 TECEP or do the TEL learning course.

You took so many business courses, it wouldn't make sense to switch to liberal arts.  You could consider switching to BSBA General Management or another option such as BSBA Finance if you felt it would be quicker to do those.
Course Experience:
Modernstates.org/CLEP, Straighterline.com, Onlinedegree.org, Saylor.org,  Sophia.org, Study.com, Instantcertcredit, Csmlearn.com, Theinstitutes.org, and TEL Learning

TESU Degree Plans:
Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in CIS  (Capstone Done)
Bachelors of Arts in Computer Science  (Capstone Done)

120+ credits earned with expected graduation September 2021.
