St Francis college took 42 of my 2year school and I did 9 while I was there resulting in a total of  51. Curious if TESU or an online college will take the 45ish from 2 year school + 9 and academy ones.

If you can, list the names of the courses too.

Since your main priority is speed(and ease) and you will probably need most of your upper level credits, study.com will probably be where you get the majority of your classes(you could probably get all your classes through them if you wanted, besides, cornerstone and capstone).

how do I find out how many actual credits I have towards my degree and what classes I need? Also based on my classes taken what’s the major I should aim for?thanks

Before hearing back from TESU since my transcripts won’t arrive for a few weeks, what classes should I take on study.com?
Also what’re some of the quicker/easier courses I should start taking now that I’ll need for my major? Looking to speed up the process as quick as I can.
Thanks

Also are all final exams proctored? I’d be taking completing many of the course load on a desktop at work which wouldn’t be suited for a video chat type exam. Is study.com the only website which conducts finals like this?

Almost all of the providers utilize a proctored final exam so there's no avoiding that except for a few courses through Sophia, TEEX and maybe another few.

Also, just to clarify, SDC = study.com
I think I sent a few PMs that might have confused you.

Btw, it may be much simpler if you address all your questions on this thread so we can keep track of all the information in one place and crowd source answers from more people who know a lot more than me.

Either way, good luck!

Not suited because it doesn't have a webcam, or not suited because webcams aren't allowed on your office computer? If just the former, then USB webcams are cheap and easy to set up. If the latter, there are tons of sub $200 refurbished laptops available online that would work fine for this.

We’ll both considering my occupation desk area has a lot of papers and moving parts its not just closed  in an office. I can do the final at home though so it’s ok.. although I’d prefer a non proctored if any suggestions can be made. Either is fine at the end of the day though

Your only option for online courses are proctoring with a third party vendor such as RPNOW or ProctorU. My suggestion is to get all your coursework done anywhere and do the proctoring at the home office. As a side note, if you're using ProctorU, you're being watched by someone and RPNOW, you're being recorded to be reviewed later. I suggest Study.com for the bulk of your remaining credits (usually I recommend the SL/Study.com combo)

would my best bet be taking CLEP exams for majority of my credits? Do they just consist of 1 exam testing your knowledge and giving you 3 credits if you pass without doing any assignments?
time wise, is it worth to study for an exam on a topic I'm not familiar with or should i just do a SL or SDC course and do the quizzes and assignments + final. which would be easier/less time? sorry I'm new to this and trying to figure all of this out. thanks

It really depends on the individual. A really good test taker might prefer studying and taking the single exam to having to jump through extra hoops. Someone who isn't might do better with the online course approach so that they can take things in small bites, and the final, when it comes, isn't as stressful because it isn't the whole grade. I would suggest trying both. You're going to want to do at least one or two SDC courses, anyway, in order to get their discount. CLEPs are free if done through Modern States, so that's easy to try.

Also, you're going to need UL courses, which CLEP doesn't offer.  There are a few DSST's that are UL. Study.com has a BUNCH of UL courses, as does a few other course providers.
