TESU SDC Information Literacy Options
#11
Is CLEP an option for you? If so, the Analyzing and Interpreting Literature exam is considered very easy (many people pass it with no study; it's basically a reading comprehension test for the most part), counts for this requirement (plus three extra credits to use elsewhere), and is free through MS.

Do people know that SOS-110 has other options?
https://www.tesu.edu/business/asba/open-course-option
Or is that just for the ASBA? Because it's missing from here:
https://www.tesu.edu/degree-completion/o...rse-option

Seems unlikely that you'd have to be in business to test out.

I would guess that they simply haven't updated that page since they promoted SOS-110 to cornerstone status. I'm fairly confident they won't accept the Saylor course instead. Somebody should probably ask if they will, but I don't doubt the answer will be no.

CLEP is an option so I may consider this. I wish I would have known about MS before I started taking CLEPs.

I see that SOS-110 is now featuring on all of TESU’s Associate degree options, except one (I think it is ASBA?). What does this mean for those of us currently pursuing a Bachelors at TESU, have completed the TESU-100 Cornerstone, and might consider applying for an ASNSM or some associates degree at the time of graduation? Will we be asked to complete SOS-110?

Where does it show the SOS-110 course as a requirement? I don't see it in my evaluation anywhere. Where is it on the OSS website now? I hope I am one of the lucky ones who had applied and got a waiver for the cornerstone and it doesn't show up for me on the OSS website at all. I guess if you add a program any time after January 1, 2019 then it would be a requirement. The 2019a catalog I keep reading about here.
2019 Goal: TESU BSBA CIS & GM and BA Computer Science

BACS & Planning for Masters (BACS instead of BALS CS/CIS)

Cert Accounting: Complete 
ASNSM Comp Sci: Complete 
ASNSM Math: Remaining - Study.com Calculus

Updating courses remaining by following forum advice, guide, spreadsheet & wiki. 
Taking a majority of credits at StraighterLine and Study.com to finish these degrees

Check out this page: https://www.tesu.edu/heavin/asnsm/mathematics

Just two days ago, I saw that there was one associates degree still showing the older cornerstone program as a requirement. I thought to myself that may be TESU is yet to update info on that page. Today, all degrees show SOS-110.

I would expect not as the catalog you're under doesn't require it and in the past adding an associate's was done under your current catalog, but we ARE talking about TESU. They could just decide to randomly declare that an added associate's will come under a new catalog. If you even think you might want to do that, I would add it NOW. Nothing says you have to complete it if change your mind.

TESU does add new degrees under different catalogs.

When I applied for my BSBA, I came in under the 2017-2018 catalog. However, when I later added the ASNSM (~August 2018) it was added under the prevailing 2018-2019 catalog instead of the 2017-2018 catalog. Based on this, I would assume that if a new degree is added today it would likely reflect the 2019A catalog. In such a case, for someone who has taken the TES-100 cornerstone for the main degree, I would hope that the SOS-110 requirement will be waived.
