Will COSC review unofficial transcripts?

The computer classes I took for my degree would be totally outdated and irrelevant. 

I took Business Law and additional computer classes at Tri-State Business institute.  

I am doing a Marketing class right now on Onlinedegree.com

For math:
MA 217 Probability & Statistics (at IUP)
MATH 104 Finite Math (at Edinboro)

So I guess my plan would have to include figuring out which of those classes I might be able to knock out on Sophia, etc first.

Oh, and how were you able to find how TSBI was accredited?

So COSC won't take Business Law from an NA school, nor will they take Marketing from OD (it's NCCRS and not on their approved provider list); nor will the Stats course work for them.

EC will take the Business Law course, since they take NA courses; and they'll most likely take the Marketing course; and they'll take Stats.

TESU will take the Stats course, and probably the Marketing one.

I think your best bet is to just decide on a course of action and go that way.  Before taking anything else, decide where you're going to go.  It doesn't make sense to start taking courses without having a plan.

I think Excelsior would be your best bet at a second degree, they have a BSBA that is IACBE (I have never seen anyone request this additional programmatic - secondary accreditation), I have only seen ACBSP requested for instructors for community college and AACSB for anything higher than that level. If you are looking at competency based degrees, then Walden and WGU will accept NA credits into their degrees, since all 3 have "free" applications now, I would apply to all 3 and see which one gives you the best bang for your buck... select the one with the best ROI/Value!

Thanks.  I originally was decided on Excelsior, but they just want to talk me into getting an MBA.  But I think it would be a bit expensive.

Just tell them you don't want an MBA.

WGU is going to be a lot of work, since about 30% of the degree is GE, which will be covered.  So you're going to have to do like 90cr there (or do 60cr and then transfer in).  That might be where you get the MBA instead.  I might even spend a few months taking courses to prep for the MBA and then just jump into it.  Take the Business Core (Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Finance, Management, Marketing, Micro and Macroeconomics) for no credit at the cheapest option available, and then do the MBA rather than spending time and money getting the BSBA.

Scrap that thought, I still go by my first initial recommendation - do the FREE term at Walden and pay the $2700 for the second term to finish the Competency Based MBA instead... for the ROI/Value, this degree would be cheap/easy/fast and you can skip the BSBA. There really isn't a need to have the BSBA if your ultimate goal is to get into the business field. If you want to get your feet wet and some alternative credits in business, get a Sophia.org membership and take some business lower level and if you want some upper level experience, take some Study.com courses!

I really do like the sound of that... I just don’t know if I can finish that fast. I am going to give the free term a shot and see where I land at the end of it.  If I earn 12 credits a term, that would take me 3 terms (which I think would be ok) but if I can’t get anywhere near 12 done in the first term, I may have to re-group and figure out how much I’d want to pay.  I’d prefer to keep costs at an amount I am ok with paying out of pocket.  (Undergrad loans are finally paid off after over 20 years.).  Of course, now my son will be going in to High school and we will be paying tuition for that since he wants to go to a Catholic school.
