UMPI are self paced courses. The program is called YourPace. They are not independent study. You have to apply to UMPI and then enroll at UMPI. Sure you can transfer elsewhere, but why? Might as well just complete one of their degrees. Their program isn't really designed for you to transfer elsewhere. It's designed for adult learners to complete their degree program at UMPI.
Unless one has a stake in their program or work for them, why does it matter if students want to transfer these UMPI courses to another college?  Huh

UMPI's YourPace program isn't designed like a regular university program. The advisor picks your courses. There aren't a bunch of options of courses to take. The entire degree is laid out for you. Courses have a specific order that they need to be taken. Many have prerequisites and you can't skip them. I tried to skip one and was flat out told no.

Ok but one can stop anytime once you get the courses you want and then transfer. Otherwise I don't like a program like that, I understand some prerequisites, but I lile more flexibility in my choices.

Well of course you can always leave. Transferring though doesn't guarantee any other college will accept the credits though. With UMPI, you know exactly where you stand from the moment your transcripts are evaluated. You are given a degree audit and you know what you have to complete. There's no hunting around for courses like other schools. No worrying about finding enough UL credits or RA credits or if the school will accept a course from X provider for the requirement you need to fulfill. It's a completely different program than TESU or COSC. It's much more like WGU.

If was possible to pick the courses you like before they tell you in order which ones is perfect and do fast the one are easy and take the credits to TESU, the problem is that you only have 8 weeks term and you can not waste time otherwise you will ending paying more than completing the Degree at the BIG 3.

I see people are picking apart my transfers and trying to apply them to the GEC requirements. I'll make a wiki page later today or tomorrow with how my courses transferred into for the GEC for general information.

The advisor is in charge of your transfers and where they fit. That's it.

Also one big thing I'm seeing popping up here and on other sites now ever since I posted my audit is Human Biology. My biology came in as 103, this does not fulfill the requirement. they require a lab.

Yup. The Environmental Science comes in for one of the science requirements, the other requirement does have the lab requirement. They offer both of these sciences in YourPace on the Strut Learning Platform. I didn't have to take either one because Sophia's Environmental Science transferred for me. Human Biology did not. I took a geology with a lab back at community college ages ago. I did complete the Information Literacy requirement and American Government requirement at UMPI and they were pretty easy courses. I take Spanish 1 in January. 3 classes left and I'm done! Took me 3 terms because I have 3 minors. If I had 1 minor, then my degree would have been completed last week.

I think UMPI is really a game-changer. They are really affordable and I read a lot of positive feedback here.

How is a dual degree or double major policy at UMPI?
In Progress:
BS Statistics + Medical Physics
PGDip ML/AI (IIITB). MSc still unsure.
Completed:
BE Civil Engineering, Universitas Pelita Harapan, 2017
Postponed:
MM Marketing, Universitas Tarumanagara, 2020

You can complete 2 BA degrees in 2 separate areas. You can have multiple concentrations in the BA programs. You can have multiple minors in the BLS program. The BLS is a terminal degree so you can't do a second bachelor's degree with it.

Not sure if it was already posted, but look what I found.
It is an official equivalency tool from UMPI (current students and applicants can find it in maine.street under Transfer Equivalency Results ).

In my experience, Human Biology from Sophia does not transfer in as BIO103 and does not apply to the GEC. Ashkir had the same experience. Art History 1 & 2 did not apply to the GEC for him either.  There is this note on the page as well. Maybe they've made changes since we've been accepted? When I started there wasn't a Sophia page on the tool. One of my colleges wasn't on there either. A few others had one or two previous students. It is interesting to see how past courses transfer in.

This course equivalency system is constantly changing and is intended to be used as a guide. Due to ongoing curriculum development, course equivalents are subject to change.
