TESU and Saylor Courses
#1
I have read a few threads but I am still confused. Can I use the Saylor courses to directly test out of a class (via Procter U) or do I HAVE to take the TECEP? I am interested in Environmental Ethics.

For the courses listed on this page, you can take the direct credit exams (that you pay $25 for proctoring): https://www.saylor.org/credit/#available-courses

Any other saylor courses are not credit bearing. some will help prepare you for TECEPs or PLA, but they will not transfer directly for credit as they're not ACE/NCCRS recommended.

You don't have to take a single TECEP if you don't want to. At this point, with TECEP's no longer counting for residency, I would say that no one here will be taking TECEP's except to continue their enrollment.

TECEPs cover some subjects that aren't available anywhere else for a similar price. For example, I would take the Federal Income Taxation TECEP over paying more for a CSU Global CBE. In other cases, I would take the TECEP to avoid the busy work for some of the ACE-approved courses. Even though TECEPs no longer count for residency, I would still take the TECEP for Science of Nutrition over the other options.

I guess I mean generally - they're not the first choice for most people. But yes, if you can't find it somewhere else, a TECEP is a good option. And, again, if you have to take a TECEP once a year to maintain enrollment, then it's a great way to do so. You can pick something easy like Sociology or Nutrition or Applied Math, and get the credits you need anyway for a great price, all from the comfort of your home.

I'm confused. I spoke to an academic advisor for Thomas Edison who said that Saylor's calculus course will not count for credit through them, but on https://www.saylor.org/credit/#available-courses it says that it can be used for credit. Why is this?

oh, on https://www.tesu.edu/degree-completion/o...rse-option it does not list calculus. That must be the reason why it does not count.

It absolutely counts. I took and transferred it within the last month. Four credits of Calculus I.

TESU advisors are off their rockers sometimes.

Sounds good then.
How does it work? You take the test at the end?
Essentially it is the same thing as Clep and the course is just the way of studying for the test?

Yep, it's very much the same as CLEP in that you just take the exam. Personally, I didn't use any of their study materials

TESU advisors can be clueless, I would always double-check their info. Not sure how they were trained, but they say "No" to a lot of stuff where their actual answer should be "I don't know." It's almost a given that they will say no when they haven't the faintest idea.
