Another idea for Gen ed electives is instead of ONU is to do TECEPs for Ra credit. It is a single exam and I've heard both the computer concepts and liberal arts math are easy ones. If you know the TECEPs subject well enough it could be quicker and easier than ONU. TECEPs do count as RA credit.

There are so many variables in play, it's best to keep things to a minimum number of providers.  So, I would recommend skipping StraighterLine as you're paying for one course and a monthly membership would be a waste - I advise sticking with Sophia.org and Study.com and if you prefer taking courses TEL Learning/ONU or if you're into exams, TECEPS/UEXCELS.  Anyways, it's all personal preference for you.  Here are my recommendations...

1) You may want to take a look at the TECEPS and take a few instead of taking the course at ONU/TEL Learning:  https://www2.tesu.edu/listalltecep.php
2) You have listed Sophia Project Management in the Principles of Management field - that won't work!  Take this at Study.com instead...
3) I'm not sure why you're taking an Upper Level BUS 324 Managerial Comm, take the Study.com BUS 113 - Business Communications...

Thank you VERY much for pointing those things out, I will change them on my plan.  Really don't want to make the plan harder than it has to be!!  I chose ONU over exams because I am an extremely nervous test taker.  ONU sounded "safe" and affordable so that is why I put those courses on my plan.  I am hoping others will blaze the trail before I get there and review the courses and also report on how they transfer in before I need them :-).  I had heard that StraighterLine might be more "test" friendly than SDC, but you are right, I am going to be taking the other courses through SDC so I might as well jump in.  Other than those issues, are there any others that should be addressed?  I am very grateful for the help!

I agree with bjcheung77 on the PM course, and the Business Comm course.

I would also swap out one of the UL Marketing courses for BUS 203: Intro to Retail Merchandising, as it's LL and will be easier.

Other than that, it looks good.

Edited because my comment was already said a few times. There weren't any comments when I posted weird.

Thank you, I’ll change out the MAR-308 Applied Marketing course for BUS-203 Intro to Marketing.

Also, just double-checking on my other changes, making sure I understood correctly:  
Changed SL Managerial Acc (ACC-102 Intro to Man. Acc) to SDC
Changed the Sophia course listed for Management to SDC course BUS-102 Principles of Management
Changed UL Business Management Communications course for SDC BUS-113 Business Communications. 
Very grateful for help and guidance!

Maybe this will help someone else out?  While several of the errors in my degree plan were due to honest ignorance :-), one question I was asked was why I had chosen BUS 324 Managerial Communications instead of a lower level course.  Just wanted to let you (y’all) know I chose BUS-324 because it is the one recommended on the wiki.  The only other choice was MAN-390 Managerial Comm from Davar, another upper level course.  I honestly didn’t know I could choose a LL.  I'm delighted to exchange the UL for a LL course, thanks to input here.  BTW, I think the wiki is amazing and very helpful, I constantly referred to it.

Thanks for pointing out the wiki issue. I thought I had changed all of them before but, apparently, I changed none of them?! Well, they all have Business 113 now!
