TESU questions (application process, etc)
#1
Hi- I have 4 quick questions. I've done plenty of searching but am not finding any recent information.
I'm helping my daughter map out her Psych degree. We were going with COSC but for various reasons, especially their extremely unhelpful Customer service department, we are considering switching to TESU.

At TESU:
1) She still needs Eng Comp II. Does the Tech Writing DSST count for that (it does at COSC)? I know there is the DSST Adv English Comp and a TECEP, but she's already completed the Tech Writing.
2) Is the A&I Lit still counting for 6 cr at TESU?
3) Help me remember about the application process. She has 96 credits (only missing the 2 TESU courses and her major). If we're pretty confident how most of the credits will fit and don't want to pay yearly fees, we'll be waiting til this fall/winter to apply. How many credits should she have completed if all she's doing through them is the Info Lit and Capstone? What if she's doing a TECEP- should that be done before or after she applies? 
4) When do we send the transcripts over, and for the usual ACE courses (study.com/sophia/etc), should they all come from ACE?

Thank you!

If you think COSC has unhelpful customer service, hold onto your hat if you switch to TESU! You will be sadly disappointed...

1) TESU requires English Comp II, the DSST or TECEP will both work (Tech Writing will not)
2) Yes, the A&I Lit CLEP still counts for 6cr, but that could change at any time (so if you take it, send it to TESU right away)
3) TESU doesn't have per-term or annual fees; you must stay enrolled, but that can be done by either taking a TECEP or course; there is no minimum amount of credits she needs to take the cornerstone; she needs 100+ credits and her AOS completed to take the capstone; take the TECEP after she applies
4) All ACE courses need to be sent on an ACE transcript except Study.com - which should be sent directly from Study.com

I would apply sooner rather than later, as you'll want to lock in this catalog (changes are usually made at TESU in April and July); send all transcripts to them upon applying; take a TECEP within a year (unless you take the cornerstone); and have CLEP/DSST scores sent straight to TESU from there on out (which is easy to do once you've enrolled).

Thank you for your help.
I actually graduated from TESU a few years ago so I'm familiar with their unhelpful Customer Service. Although I did have a really good experience with the people there that helped me formulate my degree plan.   
That was one of the many reasons we're considering switching. Also that COSC requires 30 UL credits while TESU only requires 15... and some other reasons.

So to clarify, if we send in transcripts now and take the TECEP within a year we don't have to pay another re-enrollment fee?

TESU requires 18cr of UL for anything except the BSBA.

To clarify, sending in transcripts have nothing to do with enrolling, they're two separate things.

If you take a TECEP or course, you're enrolled for a year.  So you would have to take one every year, not just once, if you take longer than a year from the time of your TECEP or course.

Yes; I was referring to 15 other than the Capstone. 
What I'm trying to ask is, once I send in the transcripts, how long will they keep them before I have to enroll/pay a large sum of money? Wink

Once you apply, I'm not sure how long they keep your transcripts - they do an eval within a month, and then will do a second one if you send in more, but that's the limit until you're enrolled.

You can do a LL TECEP to enroll, it would only cost $150.  Totally worth doing.
