Update on Study.com/TESU Transfer Guide
#1
Hello! This is Study.com!

We know there has been some confusion about whether or not Study.com’s 1- and 2-credit courses transfer to Thomas Edison State University, and for how many credits.

Originally, when we first received the transfer guide from TESU, we were informed that the courses ACE had evaluated as 1- or 2-credits would transfer as complete 3-credit courses to Thomas Edison. This is why older versions of our transfer guide had 3 credits listed. After some discussion however, TESU opted to adhere to ACE’s recommendations for 1 and 2 credits for those courses, and so we updated the transfer guide on our site to reflect this.

The courses currently transfer as follows:


Communications 101: Public Speaking >> COM-209: Public Speaking - 1 credit
English 101: English Literature >> LIT-208: English Literature I - 1 credit
Business 113: Business Communication >> COM-300: Introduction to Business Communication - 1 credit
Math 107: Quantitative Literacy >> MAT-119: Quantitative Business Analysis - 2 credits

The full transfer guide is available here: Thomas Edison State University

As always, the specifics of how courses transfer in depends on your degree plan and other credits you may have earned, so please make sure to check with your advisor.

We are actively working on these courses with the hopes of receiving 3 semester hour recommendations from ACE in the coming months.

Thank you so much, and we apologize for any confusion about this.

Any chance that someone there can work directly with TESU to work out some issues with a few other courses? I have sent messages to advising, but no luck getting anything resolved. Colleen Doran was the person who responded to me when I sent my first question, but then never responded after that, even though I referenced her personally with my second request for information. Here was my second request sent to advising:


1) They already had the History of Vietnam War (HIS-351), and added the Causes & Effects of the Vietnam War. When I look at the contents of each course, they are different from each other, yet the new course was given the same course #.


2) Advanced Technical Writing was given the same course equivalency as Technical Writing (ENG-201), even though this course is considered UL by ACE. I would think this would be given a course number in the 300-400 range.


3) They already had Organizational Behavior (MAN-311), and added Leadership & Organizational Behavior. When I look at the contents of each course, they are different from each other, yet the new course was given the same course #.


4) Globalization and International Management - I just want to make sure that this course will fulfill the International Business requirement.


5) Advanced Operations Management - I’m wondering if they also did not look closely at this course, and would give it a separate course number from Operations Management (OPM-301). It looks to have some different material than the TECEP.

3) Advanced Organizational Behavior as

Analysis and integration of the organization behavior. Emphasis is placed on the behavioral aspects of modern organizations and applications of basic principles to specific problems. Topics include: landmark research results with regard to leadership, power and authority; organizational change in complex organizations, organizational conflict and its resolution; organization development, including the dynamics of planned change and process intervention; and the role, norms and behavior of groups in organizations, including the methods for observing and analyzing group behavior.

KayV and drefcore - We will follow up with Thomas Edison and let you know about those courses.

We're happy to answer any other questions or field requests. Please let us know if there's any other information we can provide either by replying here or starting a new thread, as appropriate.

Here's a pie in the sky request... most folks around here are business major folks, so I'll represent my psych major :p

As of the most recent known TESU catalog, the only required course (aside from the capstone) for the psychology major that isn't available elsewhere as an exam is "Ethics in the Social Sciences." Two other required courses, "History and Systems of Psychology" and "Physiological Psychology," are only available as exams through Tor College Credits. Perhaps these might be worth Study.com exploring, since they are not easily available but are required?

On that same note, even though sociology is certainly not as popular as psychology or business admin, the only sociology requirement not available as an exam elsewhere is "Social Theory," and sociology electives in general (especially upper level) are a bit lacking. I assume its more worthwhile for you to explore the psych courses based on the popularity of it, but just some wishful thinking on my part Big Grin

That's very good to know, jsd. We can evaluate those four course requests and see about the feasability of developing them as Study.com courses.

I'm going to add requests for Criminal Justice majors, which seem to be popular on this forum. Propero and CSU-Global have a bunch of exams, but they are a more expensive option than study.com. Also, Ethics in CJ is a required course now for TESU, so that would be a great one to add, as CSU-Global took this CBE away recently.


Also, for business majors:
Financial Accounting
Managerial Accounting
Principles of Finance
Principles of Marketing
Microeconomics
Business Communications

A few UL courses in Accounting, Marketing or Finance would make it possible to do the entire set of Business requirements through study.com, which a lot of people are loving.

Last requests: a couple of different options for people to take more than 2 exams in a month, and a discounted rate to do so (so maybe $229 for 3 courses, $249 for 4 courses, etc.

Hey, if we've got someone from study.com here with us, we may as well ask for the moon!!

Thanks for your help!
