any grad school programs I can start before BA is conferred?

CM1999, you have to talk to TESU. When I applied I didn’t have all my transcripts ready for them until a couple of weeks after deadline for applying. You are fine, don’t worry.
Done: TESU ASNSM Biology, ASBA/BSBA (ACBSP Accredited in 2017)
Working on: TESU BA Biology & Computer Science
Deferred: **Deciding on several Masters/PHD programs**

No they aren't and thank you for catching it- my mind was on "open enrollment" and my wires crossed with the free Sophia/PD Courses and I wrote free Learner.org/VESI. The Learner.org courses are free to take, and open enrollment (no degree required) but to get credit on a transcript costs money. It's not terrible, around $100ish or so per credit if memory serves....but we're wise to not trust my memory today lol!

Lol...Thanks J! I was hoping for the magic unicorn code but feared there was none Wink Can someone rack up courses (for free) and decide at a later date to pay the fee (for credit) if they come across a valuable source to use them? If there is no time restriction to pay for credit, this may be a unique way to horde graduate credits for the future opportunity if/when a special university allows for a high volume of EDU transfer credits.

Just thinking out loud...

Yes maybe. The "class" through Learner is nothing more than watching the videos. I've done several with my kids (many more than once) but then doing a portfolio. It's totally indy study. They assume you have a classroom though, so you might have to get creative about that part.

Tagged for any more input. It would be so cool to do some self-paced courses for graduate credit, one course at a time.
We are all on the same side here, trying to better our lives....so let's get along and help each other out. 

Learn a trade. Gain technical skills. Make money, then use this money to get a degree...if you have the desire. 

Keep learning.

just in case anyone ever searches for this same thing....

I DID find a 'work around' wit Northcentral University. They will allow someone to take single courses before their bachelors degree is conferred so I'm going to take the first course of their Marriage and Family Therapy program while I wait for TESU to confer my BA. Once I have the conferred degree then I can officially apply to their MFT program and be accepted and the single course WILL transfer in. They are one of the few programs that will allow this. --many will let you take a single course but most of them say you'd have to take it again once you're accepted into the program.
