That's always been the case as far as I know. It doesn't come up that often because credit banking isn't useful for most academic purposes. It mainly comes into play for employers or other organizations (like boards of accountancy) that want to see courses on a college transcript.

Thanks @davewill. I may be misreading or misunderstanding. Is this an additional cost I have to pay to have them evaluate when my son/daughter transfer their ACE or direct transcript to TESU for them to award potential credit?

Thank you in advance.

Credit banking fee does not apply if a person is seeking a degree/certificate from TESU.

Most often seen here is is used for someone who has already earned a 120 credit accounting bachelor (from any school), but they need 150 credits to take the CPA exam - in order to get these alternative credits to appear on an RA College transcript for this purpose they pay TESU to 'bank the credits' for them; the person is then able to produce a TESU transcript to prove they have the required additional college credits.  Note: You cannot use these banked credits to transfer them to another school - that is something called credit laundering, which doesn't work.  In example - If TESU accepts 'Alt Course X' for Credit, you cannot bank it with TESU and then transfer it to say COSC who does not accept 'Alt Course X' normally.  Also, you cannot bank credits with TESU that TESU does not accept; ie: you cannot credit bank Shmoop ACE course credits through TESU, as TESU doesn't take Shmoop.
