  COSC no longer accepts Coopersmith and others
Posted by: CatsDomino - 27 minutes ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (1)

Hi, all.  I'm fairly new to the site, but have been reading and learning all I can.  I've settled on COSC and will begin in March with a goal of finishing my BALS in December.  In the spirit of helping others like you folks have helped me, I wanted to share this little gem I came across while searching through the newest catalog at COSC:

Charter Oak State College determines the amount of credit and the level of credit accepted in transfer based on policies established by its faculty. Charter Oak State College reserves the right to limit or exclude the transfer of credit if the course content, assessment process , or student learning outcomes do not meet Charter Oak’s faculty standards. Given these standards, effective January 16, 2020, credit will no longer be accepted in transfer from the following organizations:

  • Consortium for International Studies (CIS)

  • Coopersmith

  • Rechtschaffen Institute of Judaic Studies (RIJS)

  • Tor Academy

I'm not sure if this will effect those who have already applied and sent Coopersmith credit (or any of the other providers listed) for evaluation at COSC.  Hopefully it won't if the credit was evaluated and accepted before January 16.

  Advice on transfer credit D's
Posted by: bsinsc - 1 hour ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (8)

Ok, so some of you helped me years ago get a degree plan together for myself at TESC, now TESU. I am seeking advice again. I have a 20 year old son who has been 2 years at a very well known college but has struggled with learning disabilities. I am trying to find a college he can at least transfer what he has for an AA/AS in anything. He has some D's and some military leadership classes amongst others. He just needs a degree so he can go on to flight training. He has 58 credits but like I said they are all over the board as far as grades and subjects. He's had such a hard time and we have spent so much $ we are at the point of just getting a degree of some description and move on to flight training. Does anyone know which colleges will work for this situation?

  TESU's Capstone "APS-401 Current Trends & Applications"
Posted by: CarpeDiem8 - 7 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (2)

Hi All!

Has anyone taken this course through TESU? Taking a look at the syllabus, it appears to have written assignments, but it appears it may be less intense that the Liberal Arts Capstone?

It also does not appear to have alternative credit, so required to take through TESU.

Thanks!

  Alternative to COSC
Posted by: nilahti2 - 10 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (5)

I had my mind set on going to COSC.  I submitted my application with an anticipation of starting 01-21-20.  They have all transcripts.  However, they have not completed my evaluation.   So I cannot register for this session.  I have to wait until March.  The capstone and cornerstone cannot be taken simultaneously.  So that also pushes me into taking summer school.  I had an a plan of completing my degree by the end of March.  But this school blown my plans to pieces.  Because their restrictions places me at finishing 08-16-20.  My reason for choosing this school was for affordability.  But this keeps me in a job that I hate for the majority of another year.  Can you suggest an alternative school that is a bit more flexible and brings me closer to my goal of finishing by the first quarter of the year?

  When did SL start looking more like SDC?
Posted by: BrighterFuture88 - 10 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (5)

I am going back to SL to finish my remaining electives and noticed that a chunk of courses now have quizzes after every section like SDC does.  Was this a recent change?

  SL Comp II - Drafts vs Final
Posted by: Tlm - Today, 11:10 AM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (1)

I have never hated a class as much as I hate this one. I have taken way too long to complete it.  I am finishing the essays and the drafts are coming back completely different than the marked assignments. Things that one person says to change, the next is saying is wrong and that I should have left.  The feedback of a strong thesis statement on the draft is coming back as a weak thesis statement on the final.  I know I have to let it go, turn in the work, and be done with it.  My marks are still good, I am just getting nothing from this class. I just needed to vent.

  BS general studies with physics concentration: Worth less than a physics major?
Posted by: sciencemathematics1 - Today, 08:15 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (9)

I am thinking of going to Charter Oak or SUNY: Empire State College in order to get a physics concentration. It looks like they seem to require similar amounts of credit for a physics major and a physics concentration. I am wondering if I get a physics concentration if it would be less valuable then a physics major. What could I do with a physics major that I couldn't do with a physics concentration?

Charter Oak offers Bachelors of Science in general studies, while offering concentrations in various subjects. It requires 36 credits out of 120 total to get a concentation in a subject, which is similar to the amount required for a major.

I also want to apply to graduate school for physics. Would I be able to do this with a physics concentration

  Creative Project Capstone TESU
Posted by: coldseal - Yesterday, 09:12 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (3)

I am a self employed glass artist, so I am thinking doing the creative project option for the capstone might be easier, as I am not a fan of writing long papers. Am I able to make something out of glass for my project, and does this project need to take a certain amount of time? I plan on calling tomorrow to ask more information from TESU as well.
