TESU math degree plan. Am I doing this right?
#1
I did an unofficial credit evaluation on myself from previously earned credits, and this is what I'm coming up with.  

For general education credits, I need the following:

1)  Oral comm (3cr)

2)  Information literacy  (3cr)

3)  Ethical leadership  (3cr)

4)  Civic engagement  (3cr)

5)  Knowledge of Human Cultures  (3cr)

6)  Physical and Natural World  (4-7cr)

7)  Gen ed electives  (12cr)

How do I find out which alternate credits I can take to satisfy the gen eds?


For math:

1)  Geometry  (Study.com)

2)  Calc 1  (Saylor)

3)  Stats  (Saylor or DSSST)

4)  Intro to math reasoning  ()

5)  Calc 2  (Straighterline)

6)  Calc 3  (Westcott)

7)  Linear Algebra  (Westcott)

8)  Abstract Algebra  (Westcott)

9)  UL math elective (TESU)

10)  UL math elective  (TESU)


Electives:

9 credits in electives


Does this plan look legit?  Thank you

Jake, don't just copy and paste what you're missing. We need to know what has been taken as well so we don't recommend you take the same course again. So, copy/paste the entire evaluation including the "other" field at the bottom of the list. You may be able to salvage a course that they placed into the "other" field and finish faster.

Hi Jake, I have homework for you. Click the Spreadsheet link on my signature and download it from post #27/28. Modify the My Degree Plan! worksheet and use the other spreadsheets as a reference tool. Enter in all the ones you have completed and ones that are missing, write down the provider you want to take it from.

Lastly, use this as your accountability thread, color code it accordingly to mark your progress, post that attachment to this thread... you may want to save it to a google doc or one drive so people can see the updates regularly and comment on what can be used for courses you are missing...

Very helpful.  Thank you

Just a quick note - try not to take business courses when you're not getting a business degree. TESU won't count most of them towards places you need them (they come in as Free Electives, which should be the last area you fill).

Also, I know that APU is cheaper than TESU and has a math degree, they have a bunch of UL math courses that are about $810 per course.

Thanks. The business courses are from years ago. You're suggesting that I take the UL math courses from APU and not the whole degree? Just to clarify

Yes, just a course or two if that's what you need for the TESU degree.  There are probably other schools that are cheaper than TESU as well, I just don't know which ones they are off the top of my head.

I am interested in this as well, can you guys name some of these cheaper schools for math credits? cause for UL math the cheapest I could find was AMU, I would please like to be proven wrong!

@jakepg Any reason in particular you want a pure math? I think its cheaper to do the BALS with an AOS in Natural Science and Mathematics. I was considering the math degree as well though! With a math undregrad you can do a masters in all the cool degrees! CS, EE, CE, ME and all the impressive stuff. I cant do WESCOTT though cause they dont have testing available for my country.
