TESU/Study.com partnership transfer max of 90 credits?
#1
From TESU's Study.com information page (https://www.tesu.edu/studycom/#who-is-eligible):


Quote:Study.com and TESU have an exclusive partnership to make transferring credit from Study.com courses and earning a degree as seamless as possible. If you follow our degree plan guidelines, up to 90 credits will transfer and apply to a degree at Thomas Edison State University, except when you use another potential source of transfer credit duplicating a degree requirement that could be satisfied via Study.com courses. A Study.com transcript is required to verify acceptance into the partnership.

Am I interpreting this correctly that the Study.com partnership limits you to transferring in 90 credits, therefore requiring you to do 30 credits with TESU directly? Or, is that 90 credits the max from Study.com and I can transfer in the remaining credits from CLEPs, and other credit sources?

I'm trying to figure out what the catch is with the Study.com partnership. Why wouldn't everyone do it? If, as I've gathered from other posts, only one Study.com course is required to qualify for the reduced tuition etc, what is there to lose?

You haven't been searching or researching TESU's website enough my friend. There is no catch, it's a limit set by TESU, from one source of alternative credit. Everyone finds their cheap/easy/fast option and chooses their own courses to reach that 120+ credits required for the degree. For some that are wanting to take credit, Study.com would be perfect for UL, as they can get the LL even cheaper/easier/faster with other methods.

If you did a search here as well, you would have read many threads to limit their credits from a particular ACE/NCCRS source, up to 90 credits, even in my Beginners Guide spreadsheet template or the Degreeforum Wiki. Example, I like StraighterLine OR CLEP/MS, I only recommend doing the max 90 credits from each towards a degree. The AOS, I recommend using Study.com or other testing methods.

Here you go, the TESU transfer info. Just in case you missed the read: https://www.tesu.edu/academics/catalog/transfer-credit

Courses and examinations approved through the National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS) and the American Council on Education (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service. The limit of National CCRS and ACE credits from a single source is 90 credits for a bachelor's degree and 45 credits for an associates degree.

Essentially, you can transfer ALL 117 of a Bachelors but the Capstone into TESU, create a degree plan and stick to it!
For Community College OR a 4 year college, they have similar requirements: See this page for details.

Thanks, that is what I was pretty sure the answer would be, but the way the study.com page on TESU was worded made me question it a bit.

Yes, 90cr limit on specific course providers. So if you take 90cr from Study.com, you could then take the other 27 from one or more providers and be just fine.

Do you know if Charter Oaks has the same limit of 90 credits from study.com?

That's because they write from the point of view that Study.com and TESU would be the only sources of credit. After all, neither of them have an incentive to push other providers.

When I applied to Charter Oak, Excelsior, Thomas Edison and WGU, I sent them over 100 credits from StraighterLine alone along with my other credits. TESU has restrictions on the amount of credits from one source, 80 from 2 year CC, 117 from 4 year college/univ and 90 from ACE/NCCRS (90 credits from one ACE/NCCRS source, not total). Charter Oak didn't have a restriction of 90 credits from one source, neither did Excelsior. I don't recall WGU though, hmm...
