  Capstone Writing: Tips & Tricks
Posted by: rachel83az - 1 hour ago - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - Replies (3)

On a whim, I picked up the book How to Write a Thesis by Umberto Eco. Despite the name, it's definitely geared toward the kind of writing that one has to do as a capstone project at one of the Big 3 and not toward a doctoral thesis. It's also aimed at students who haven't had to do any serious academic writing before. I haven't finished it yet, but it seems super helpful in spite of its age. Though, I'm not sure how helpful it is for students who have a Business capstone. 

What's your favorite resource for capstone writing?

  Important information! READ BEFORE APPLYING
Posted by: rachel83az - 11 hours ago - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - Replies (1)

UMPI is not like any of the Big 3 when it comes to credit transfers. Before you apply, there are some things that you need to keep in mind:

  1. You are permitted to bring in up to 90 credits.
  2. Any or all of those credits can be ACE.
  3. Most students will likely transfer in 72-84 credits.
  4. Take English Composition classes at UMPI. They're faster and easier than any known alternate source.
  5. You will need a science with a lab. Currently, the easiest way to do that is with Study.com's Biology 101L course. 
  6. You will need at least 3 credits of a foreign language. InstantCert's Spanish is currently the fastest way to get foreign language credit. If you are going for a History degree, you will need 6 credits in foreign language. If this is the case, study Spanish with Study.com. For any degrees, if you already know a foreign language that is not Spanish, choose either a CLEP exam or an ACTFL exam for credits. 
  7. Do not expect to finish your degree in one session (2 months). Not all classes are offered every session. Expect 2-4 sessions to finish your degree.
  8. Once you apply and are accepted, you are automatically enrolled and you MUST obtain permission from your advisor to transfer in additional classes. This is usually not a problem, but it is still a good idea to wait to apply until you have completed all of the courses that you plan to transfer to UMPI.

  UNISA

I don't pay really close attention but the higher education system in South Africa has had it's problems in recent years.  This includes UNISA.  There's been a bit of a shake up at UNISA.  This article describes a bit of what's been happening.

I ran into this article and thought I'd share it.  I don't know much about this whole Scrum thing but I've heard that it has become popular.  Maybe even useful.

  Has anyone taken TEL Chemistry 1 + Lab?
Posted by: DIGI-212 - Yesterday, 08:34 PM - Forum: General Education-Related Discussion - Replies (2)

I am looking for info on TEL Chemistry 1 + Lab. Has anyone taken this from one of the partner schools? I am specifically interested in how the credits appeared on the partner school's transcript. Do they appear as transfer credits or as institutional courses? I need a Chemistry+Lab RA credit to transfer to a SUNY school. Must be RA but can be pass/fail grading.

Thanks in advance for any info you have to share.

  GPA
Posted by: carebear_007 - Yesterday, 05:02 PM - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - Replies (1)

When UMPI calculates GPA do they include the graded credits that were transferred in as well or just the courses taken at UMPI?

  The Classroom Platform ?
Posted by: elledee2020 - 10-21-2021, 08:09 PM - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - Replies (1)

Can someone who is in the program tell me what the learning platform is like?  Is it like Sophia where you go through Units and read and/or watch videos then take an assessment?  How are the lessons laid out?  How are the assessments done?  Can you just test through if it is something you are familiar with? Just trying to get a feel for what I would be signing up for.  Thanks!
