TESU not accepting a slew of Study.com computer courses anymore
#21
I still stick to my previous post#3 - I recall these courses listed above were all CYB/ITS courses, so no one in the BSBA CIS OR BACS should be affected. Here's what it showed on their older transfer page: https://study.com/directory/school/Thoma...ransferTab

For those who have this pre-planned for their BSIT or BS Cybersecurity at TESU, then I suggest you do the course(s) right away - meaning all the quizzes/final exams, and save the assignments for later. I think the courses look at the completion date of the final exam and not when you last sent in your assignments for grading.

As long as ACE has it showing an earlier date than April 1, 2020 - you can transfer these into TESU, but make sure you email TESU and inform them beforehand and see if that is an option.

TESU, in particular, seems to be interested in cutting the nose right off its own face....

Does SNHU accept Study.com credits, or from any other online  course platform, besides Sophia.org?

I think ACP stopped a while ago, hope the remarks are true for ACE outside that project.

yeah, I searched their site for "American Council on Education" and that was really the only thing that came up

I also searched for study.com and it gave me every page that had "study" on it

Ask them for an unofficial evaluation / about acceptance

I called SNHU yesterday to ask questions about their Gen Eds, because they now have this "GE Exploration" area where instead of a list of courses that work in each area, they have "Humanities Perspectives" and "Humanities Application", "Social Science Perspectives" and "Social Science Application", "Natural Science Perspectives" and "Natural Science Application", and "History Perspectives" and "Applied History"

They would not confirm that they would bring in Art History or Art for Humanities, Biology or Chemistry for Natural Sciences, etc.  They said you have to apply to see where your courses come in.  I am not going to tell someone to hope that they bring in the courses they've taken (or plan to) without some sort of confirmation from the school about what will come in.  And I'm certainly not going to pay $320/cr for gen eds like that.  No thank you.

So for a BALS/BSLS, I'm sticking with the Big 3.  MAYBE if SNHU had a degree that couldn't be gotten elsewhere, I might consider it, but they're not looking great to me at this point at all.

I've been doing some thinking on this SNHU thing because it is so frustrating. After son #1 got his Associates at SNHU through the defunct high school program, they changed the gen ed structure and so son #2 did not choose SNHU. They act like the friendly dolphin in their ads about "90 credits accepted" but then on their website, the online degree has those funky gen ed requirements. So, I noticed their on-campus degree has more traditional gen ed's and I suppose that is where you can guess at what transfer classes will come in as and fulfill requirements. There is a user on here, Ajdt90, who said on this thread hew as enrolled in SNHU and fulfilling his gen eds through Sophia. 

SNHU does require those 30 credits from them and the Business degree adds "last 24 credits" be done with them. So no joining the Big 3 anytime soon. 
That's what I know for now! Rolleyes [url=https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/User-Ajdt90][/url]

Computer Science 204: Database Programming
Computer Science 331: Cybersecurity Risk Analysis Management
Computer Science 332: Cybersecurity Policies and Management

In order to transfer the credit for any of the courses listed above, you must complete the courses by no later than March 31, 2020.


Just fyi

I had a few of these courses (taken in May) that were accepted as electives so it looks like TESU will accept, but not apply credit directly to non-elective course requirements.
