TESU transfer credit accepted from WGU?
#1
Does anybody know about how TESU accepts transfer credit from WGU? 
I checked at the link below and I could not find WGU.[/url]
[url=https://www.tesu.edu/admissions/transfer-credit]https://www.tesu.edu/admissions/transfer-credit

I am specifically referring to the acceptance of credits from the computer science and teaching degree programs (math and science) at WGU.
Does anyone have experience with having courses transfer to TESU? Are there any limitations on what curses they accept?
I heard that there are some schools that would not accept WGU credits because of being only pass/fail.

WGU is a regionally accredited university.

While transfer policies can vary from school to school, most RA colleges will accept courses taken at any other RA college in transfer towards their own degrees up to a limit based on residency requirements. Of course, just because they will accept transfer courses doesn't mean that the courses are usable in every degree plan. The school still has to match the incoming credits against the degree program you're considering and will only use those courses that match their local courses content-wise. This process is the same regardless of which school you're coming from or transferring to.

As for colleges not taking WGU credits because of them being non-graded, that sounds like speculation to me and is generally a false statement. First of all, WGU is not the only college out there that doesn't post grades for their courses. Brown University is probably the biggest name school that does this, but I know there are others like Reed College, Hampshire College, and Antioch University as well. Nobody blinks an eye at people attending those schools and I doubt any school would have an issue with their transfer credits. Secondly, the destination college generally doesn't care about grades of transfer courses unless they are being used to meet prerequisites for a specific degree program or to meet overall entrance requirements; this is usually only a big deal when trying to get into grad schools as opposed to transferring at the undergrad level. Lastly, WGU courses have an implied grade of "B" (3.0 GPA) that is listed on the transcript. Schools are not obligated to accept this grade, but most will.

In any case, I can say with confidence that TESU will accept courses from WGU without any problem. They accept ACE credits for everything but the cornerstone and capstone, so they will definitely accept credits from an RA college. You may have trouble matching some WGU courses to TESU courses since WGU has a lot of unique courses, but worst case they can be used as elective credit.

Of course, this begets the question of why you'd want to transfer courses from WGU to TESU instead of the other way around? Unless you are no longer able to attend WGU because you're no longer a US resident or are unable to remain at WGU for academic reasons, it is hard to imagine a good reason to do this. Especially given that TESU is like twice as expensive and a much slower way to complete a degree. It makes even less sense if you're coming from a CS degree, since the WGU program has a pretty good reputation among the tech community.

If it is a matter of avoiding additional terms, I'd just withdraw from WGU temporarily, complete as many courses as I could from places like Sophia, Study.com, or StraighterLine, and then transfer back and re-enroll. At that point, you'd just need to complete the capstone and any other required courses to meet residency requirements to complete a degree, which could easily be done in a single term.
