TESU wants Course Numbers for ECEs taken in 2004
#1
My TESU transcript review is complete. It included my BSc from Excelsior, and the review included the following note:

We received an Excelsior College transcript. The transcript lists Excelsior College Examinations. However, the examinations do not include course numbers. Course numbers are required to grant credit.
Please have a corrected transcript listing course numbers for the examinations sent from Excelsior College.
Examination credit will be added to your record when the corrected transcript is received.

Has anyone come across this before?  I'm not sure how I would get the transcript revised as it's the official one direct from Excelsior. I wouldn't care, except that all the ECEs I did were for UL credit, and I think they'd knock out a few more of the courses I would need for the BSBA (I'm showing needing 57 credits right now, but my understanding is I only need 24 NEW credits, plus to meet all the specific BSBA degree requirements.)

Create a copy/paste or screenshot of your transcript without your personal info. You should also do the same for the evaluation at TESU. TESU needs the numbers as it will translate to either LL or UL, just having a course name wouldn't do for most schools you transfer to. So, if something needs to be done, it's Excelsior that has to update their transcript info to include what the corresponding exams mean within their transcript. If you look at their Uexcels, it has a course number associated with them... THAT is what has to happen... talk to Excelsior pronto!

Did you send an Excelsior transcript or an exam transcript? I believe they look slightly different and that maybe the problem. If you login and search for Excelsior Exam transcript follow the directions to send that. It should contain only your exams.

Excelsior Exams all have course numbers (for example, Cultural Diversity is SOCx305, and is worth 3cr UL).

TECEP exams also all have course numbers (for example The Science of Nutrition is BIO-208 and is worth 3cr LL).

CSU-Global SSA exams all have course numbers.

Strayer Challenge exams all have course numbers.

What degree are you getting at TESU that you need courses from your Excelsior bachelor's degree?  For a 2nd degree at TESU, you need new credits anyway, all in the AOS, so I'm not really certain it even matters what the course numbers are.  Do they know you're going for a 2nd degree?  Because you would get a waiver for the GE and Free Electives.

I sent the official transcript. My Excelsior transcript includes about 5 ECE exams on it, as well as CLEP, DSST, and other ACE-evaluated credits.

I'm aiming for a BSBA. I know I need new credits in the AOS, but my understanding was that I just need minimum 24 new credits, and that they have to be in the AOS. Is it actually that all of the AOS has to be new credits?

They waived all of the Gen Ed, but I still "need" 57 credits, and many of those (like College Algebra) I already took as part of my Excelsior degree. I've attached my evaluation. I can't attach my Excelsior transcript until I get home and can scan it.

Weird, I don't see the attachment of your academic evaluation.  57 credits seems excessive if you have transferred in a degree already.  They actually need 24 new credits in the AOS/degree program requirements but, you also need to have all the "other requirements" as well.  So for example, if you have 0 in business, the professional business requirements have not been met, there already are 39 credits in that section alone, and the 18 in the AOS.  We won't know until we view the evaluation, I am guessing a bunch of the courses went into the "other" field.  The Excelsior transcripts are just to "confirm" the courses were taken and to see what level they come in as...

Yes, unfortunately the BSBA is 60cr (36cr in the core, 18cr in the AOS, and 2 pre-reqs that are part of the GE (College Algebra and Stats).  Only 24cr of this has to be new though, so if you have prior credits that will work in any of these areas, it's worth figuring out.

I would probably contact EC and ask them for a digital copy of an old catalog with the ECE info in there, so TESU will be able to see that.

Ah that's a good idea. I might try that, as I think it would be easier than trying to get them to modify the transcript itself.

I've attached my Excelsior transcript, and retried the TESU evaluation. (I missed a step last time. Hopefully it comes through this time.)
