WANTED: Bachelors degree, see details. (lol)
#21
Ok yeah it all sounds good. As soon as I get the review back I will post it here. Cost isn't really an issue, I can do cleps/dsst for free and tuition assistance will cover courses at whichever school that I have a degree plan through. Because of that, I cant take classes at different schools unless I choose to pay out of pocket(which I have no desire to do).

Makes sense. You could plan your degree to have the final 16 credits at TESU so that residency is covered. As mentioned, TECEPs should count. Doing a few alternative credits through study.com or another source shouldn't break the bank if you want to pursue that option for physics 1/2 and project management.

We won't know until you get your academic evaluation back, but presumably you will still need 12 UL credits in technical studies. Tesu has a handful of UL courses in electronics, so this may be good for your background. Add in the capstone and cornerstone and you've hit your 16 credits of residency... Plus the 1 credit physics 2 lab.

Diversity and Civic engagement would be best accomplished by the appropriate CLEPs.

Algebra, precalculus and statistics can be covered by CLEP and DSST combined if you're good with independently studying for those ahead of time. There are other ways such as ALEKS($20/month) to get these.

Besides any resources your base can provide the CLEP and DSST websites both state that they offer free study guides to active duty military.

Physics 1 lab can be done via StraighterLine or you can do it with TESU since the tuition should be covered. Either way is probably about the same amount of work and either way you buy a lab kit.

That *should* just leave project management and physics 1/2 which, which in my opinion can be best accomplished with study.com in 1-2 months.

*Project management through study.com is UL so that plus 3 credit capstone plus 12 UL credits in technical subject would satisfy the 18 UL credits requirement.

If the OP is active duty military, then there's no residency waiver is there?  He just needs 16cr of residency, and TECEP's count - so cornerstone, capstone, and 4 easy LL TECEP's.

Correct. That's what I meant. Taking 16 credits to satisfy residency.

Basically, the OP needs to get all their credits from alternative sources (CLEP/DSST/ACE/NCCRS, etc) and at TESU, they'll need to take 7 TECEPS (easiest LL ones, hopefully) and the Capstone to meeting the residency requirements in order to get their degree.

The residency requirement for Military/Service People is 24 credits for a Bachelors and 12 for an Associates. The residency waiver option or the 16 credits residency option applies only to non-service people.

It's all a bit confusing, but the info is in this link: https://www.tesu.edu/academics/catalog/r...quirements

Even though I've read that part about requiring 24 credits for people in the military completion plan, I've heard conflicting things from the military/vet advisors I've talked to. My situation may be different as a veteran (now) but I also talked to them when I was active duty. That's something the OP would have to sort out.

I guess it depends on how the evaluation comes back but taking some TECEPs for the sake of residency may not be the best option if:
A) they dont't contribute to the OP's planned degree
&
B) the OP still needs to take some courses in AOS

If the OP needs to get more than a few courses in the AOS, then he'd probably be better off in the Comprehensive plan, or a different degree altogether, wouldn't he?  Or am I thinking of the higher per-credit tuition plan?

I'm guessing it's probably better to just wait and see the eval before making any decisions.  But, the OP can certainly take the GE's that are required now while waiting for the eval to come through.

Except that if he plans to use GI benefits, then the comprehensive plan isn't allowed as I recall. They don't even list that as an option on the military tuition page:

The OP mentioned using military tuition assistance which is different than GI bill benefits. As davewill mentioned, comprehensive isn't an option for people using GI bill or military tuition assistance.

No matter what degree they choose, they could certainly start work on CLEPS/DSST for diversity, Civic engagement and math requirements since those would be needed for any degree.
