  Instacert Scoring?
Posted by: mikepro - 2 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

So looking at the scoring systems on both Astronomy as well as College algebra  you can pass both classes without passing the final exam? Is that correct?

  Saylor updates pages to include expired courses

I really hope they get this fixed and think it's weird that they aren't on top of this. Anyone who needs computer science courses is going to be stuck for who knows how long. I may end up having to take two exams somewhere else.

  DSST MIS Resources
Posted by: studyandpass5 - Yesterday, 06:54 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

For those who have taken the DSST Management Information Systems, was InstantCert helpful? What other resources did you use? I for sure will use the Peterson's tests and the DSST practice tests. Thanks in advance!

JROE Wrote:Hey there, I’ve never posted yet on the forums but have been searching around here and the wiki. I’m started this month with the some of the free courses and pretty much starting from scratch, 12 credits transferring in. I am currently looking at doing my BALS through TESU with with a humanities concentration. Any recommendations on degree path?
I’m starting my free courses but now wondering if i should look at Modernstates.com as well along with Institutes, Sophia, TEEX, Saylor...then move towards Study.com or SL. Any recommendations would be helpful. Thanks -JROE

I would download the spreadsheet templates I have in the Beginners Guide post #28/#31 (see my signature for link) and do some decision making in which courses you would like to take.  The majority of the courses I recommend are for individuals who are more into testing at home for a small nominal cost.  

If that's the case, stick with completing all the FREE credits first (Institutes, Sophia, TEEX) and take the CSM Learn course for your math requirement.  You can take all the courses at onlinedegree.com as well for 44 credits at $9/3 credits! Saylor is cheap as well.  Sophia also have sales at $297/3 courses.   Then do the remainder at StraighterLine/Study.com

The AOS LL/UL can be done with the cheap $45/$75 TEEX courses and Study.com to finish it off.  If you are strapped for cash but very close to a testing center, and you have plenty of time on your hands - then ModernStates and the FREE CLEP option is good.

  Two BSBA from TESU, possible?
Posted by: Mitmike2019 - Yesterday, 12:29 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (13)

Hello you'll! I just completed all the requirements for TESUs BSBA GM, except the cornerstone and capstone. If I want to tackle the CIS as well, all I would need is the CIS AOS, correct? Second question, can I test out of this AOS from SL and SDC?

  Typically newbie: Heres my transcript! What should I do?
Posted by: zebra cow - Yesterday, 11:34 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (17)

Hello everyone,

So I suppose I'm posting about a very typical question here but bare with me as this is my first post after becoming aware of the big three. Which has been for me a breath of fresh air seeing as how I can finish my degree without starting from scratch. Anyway, I'm a 28 year old male that has completed 110 credit hours at Utica College which is located in Utica, NY. My degree was to be in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance. However, after roughly 3.5 years I decided to drop out based upon several personal/medical issues. Throughout, last six years I've been on a quasi soul searching journey which has involved trying a whole bunch of things, working a whole bunch of jobs including a couple entrepreneurial ventures, and figuring out what I like and what I don't. Needless to say I have pinpointed what I want to do with my life. That focus has brought me here to this forum.

Clearly, with having so much course work completed I would like to graduate as soon as possible and start working in a professional setting as soon as possible. I've come to understand that The Big 3 would best suit my needs. Of the three I'm tentatively favoring TESU or Excelsior because I've heard that they do not require a science and lab to graduate. Can any one confirm this? While having interest in the subject I've always found the classes to be rather lifeless. So I'm going to attach my transcript in the hopes that you guys can give me some direction. Basically what I would like to know is:

1) What credits will transfer, what credits will not? 
2) For credits that don't transfer should I test out (can I?). Or more generally, what is the most appropriate course of action?
3) What school will best suit my needs?*****
4) What is the estimated time frame for graduation?
5) Is their a science requirement at TESU or excelsior?

*** My main priority is that I want to finish as soon as possible. I'm sure it sounds repetitive if you're a veteran of the forums but is the truth. I really have a desire to get out into the real world and start working my butt off.****

I have not contacted any of the schools yet because I wanted to come to the forums first to get a better understanding of what needs to be done. I've attached a copy of my transcript. Thank you guys in advance!

Obviously they're both playing coy and are too modest to self-promote beyond their new "innocent" signature lines, but i'm certainly not the only one to notice...

Sooo.... Tell us more!

Through your extensive histories here, no one would argue that you have both haven't earned the right to share this endeavor with us all!

  College degree required to work at a factory?
Posted by: sanantone - 12-10-2019, 08:37 PM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (2)

As automation takes over simple tasks and machinery becomes more difficult to operate, many manufacturing companies are starting to require or prefer college degrees. People with college degrees now make up over 40% of the manufacturing workforce; soon, they will be the majority. Four out of five job openings at Caterpillar require or prefer a degree. Around 70% of Honeywell's 2019 new-hires have an associate's degree or higher. Robots have taken over repetitive tasks at Harley-Davidson reducing workplace injuries.
