TESU Degree planning
#21
For COSC, the cost for tuition & fees for 2 semesters and only taking the cornerstone & capstone (so bringing in 114cr) is $3,181.

For EC1, the cost for tuition & fees and only taking the cornerstone, info lit, and capstone (so bringing in 113cr) is $5300
For EC2, the cost for tuition & fees, taking the cornerstone, info lit, capstone, and 2 add'l courses (so bringing in 107cr) is $5850

For TESU, the cost for tuition & fees and only taking the cornerstone and capstone (so bringing in 114cr) is $6654.
---------------------------------
For COSC, you would need to figure out your 2nd concentration, which may or may not be tricky (it can't be business or something non-liberal arts, it must be Pscyh or History or Communications or something like that).

For EC, you don't need a 2nd Area of Focus, but you will need to figure out 5 UL liberal arts courses to take (you need 30cr of UL, 6cr from cornerstone & capstone, 9cr from non-liberal arts areas, and then 15cr from liberal arts). It would be very easy to find those.

For both COSC & EC, you get to choose the concentration/area of focus that will go on your transcript, which is nice.

The only issue I see is making sure that they bring in the UL credits you've earned.

Here is what you need for Sophia:

AREA A
WRITTEN COMMUNICATION: English Comp II
ORAL COMMUNICATION: Public Speaking
QUANTITATIVE LITERACY: College Algebra

AREA B
DIVERSITY: Intro to Sociology
ETHICAL LEADERSHIP: Intro to Ethics
CIVIC ENGAGEMENT: NOT AVAILABLE

AREA C - nothing needed

AREA D
Need Chem I & II w/labs or Physics I & II w/labs (not available)

AREA E: MATHEMATICS
Need Precalc or higher, not available

GE Electives
REQUIRED: Intro to Statistics
REQUIRED: Intro to IT (I think this works for Computer Concepts requirement)

-----------------------------------------------

Switch to Study.com for math, PM, and Civic Engagement:
POLS 103: Comparative Politics (you could also opt for InstantCertCredit's American Government instead)
MAT 103: Precalculus
BUS 311: Project Management (I think UL is required which is why I suggest Study.com instead of Sophia)

-----------------------------------------------

For science, it's going to be a bit harder, as you need science with labs, and unfortunately, I don't think they will take Study.com's Chem I & II w/labs, even though they are VERY similar to TESU's own courses.  I might ask about it though.  They also don't take Straighterline's Chem I w/Lab for this that I can tell (based on the course equivalency number).

Portage Learning has Chem I w/Lab and Chem II w/Lab, for a price of $792 each (lab included I think). That will probably be your fastest option.  Even if you found them at a school, having to take a semester of I and then a semester of II will make it a long time before you're done.  Schools like APU have them, but they're 16-week courses.

--------------------------------------------

I'm sure someone on here with more experience will give you more info on with the science portion.

I sent a request to TESU advising for the courses recommended in Area A for Sophia. The advisor confirmed English Comp 2 will transfer in as ENC-102 and College Algebra will transfer in as MAT-121 (via ACE transcript for both). 

But informed the following:

"Public Speaking through Sophia learning is no longer accepted for credit."

Too many changes lately, needed COM-209 and I believe that is how it transfers but now it is not accepted for credit?  Undecided

Having said that, there are other options to get the most bang for the buck, since you're missing mainly general education courses.  This is what I suggest you do, if you want to be enrolled, just register for the 1 credit Medical Terminology TECEP at $50 and leave it, you'll be enrolled for the next year.  See my last update post here: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...o-Withdraw

Hey guys, I'd been reading this forum for a while and there are always unclear things in my mind as well as new issues. I hope it's okay if I take the opportunity in this post to make sure I get things straight.

1) From dfrecore plan to wxcooper (applicable in some way to my wife), I could guess that the flat-rate fee is for each term instead of a year, right? (just by reading TESU's website and for being from/leaving abroad I thought it was for the year).

2) As an international student, my wife registered at TESU (status of "non-matriculated student") and she has taken a couple of TECEP exams already and paid for another 3 upcoming (we weren't well aware of study.com and the 90 credits taken up BY provider), is this really enough to be linked to the current catalog? So, one only loses it after the registration expires then? Which it is after a year, isn't it?

Thank you everyone for being so helpful, you have no idea how all of this is going to change our lives.

1. Flat-rate tuition only applies to courses taken within a single term, not in a single year, yes.

2. She is enrolled and linked to the current catalog for a year from the date of her last TECEP.

Hey beto, Welcome to the board. I just noticed your post. Hope we can help you and your wife... You should also look into COSC and/or Excelsior as well as maybe look into some competency degree offerings... It may be a good idea to create a new thread with your academic evaluation or your wife's evaluation and we can recommend a plan of completing remaining courses.

1) Flat-rate tuition is just for that term you sign up for. I only recommend it to individuals who will take a mix of lower level credits for residency purposes. Some would try to cram as much into that one term, but I wouldn't do it that way, I would do a "mix and match" what you need and course combo you can handle.

2) Any TECEP taken will enrol the student for 1 year, to save cash, take the 1 credit Medical Terminology. I would recommend applying and getting an evaluation, you do not need to enrol right away as you get a couple of evaluations free. Enrolment just gives you access to academic advising, extra evaluations, and other resources when you need them.
