  109 credits in 10 months
Posted by: Jenniferinfl - 3 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

I haven't been here much since I originally popped in and asked a pile of questions about degree paths- but, I thought I would stop in and say that I finally finished my BS in Accounting from WGU. It's been an utterly grueling 10 months, I worked full time up until a week ago. I quit last week when my boss decided to start requiring 55 hours per week and I was freaking out that I wouldn't be able to finish my capstone on time. (It was a call center, sales job) So, I did have a week off from work to do my capstone, but the rest was done with a full time job and family obligations. I did one term at WGU, but, got a 4 week extension to finish my capstone. 

I took some CLEP, some Straighterline and then the rest through WGU. You can see the breakdown in my signature. My brick and mortar college credits were from years ago, but, everything else was since December of last year. 

I'm not completely sure that a college degree will actually help me out all that much unless I relocate- I've applied to hundreds of jobs over the last several months. Actually went in for an interview for an inventory manager position today and was offered a part time cashier job at $9 an hour. But, I digress. lol I will say that I am getting a lot more interviews now, most of them are just rubbishy bait and switch where I'm supposed to be interviewing for a management role or clerk role and then it turns into a $9 an hour secretary offer, but, I am getting a lot more interviews. So, should be able to land something decent eventually. 

Just thought I'd share in the event that someone else wanted to attempt. Doing the bulk of an accounting degree in one term was definitely a lot. I had no experience in accounting, but, my time spent in lower level retail management did come in handy for some of the general business courses. I'm thrilled to be done, but, I'll be starting the masters in accounting at WGU in December, also with the goal of being finished in one term.

  TESU Payment
Posted by: BrighterFuture88 - 5 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

Hey all!  

First off, I already know about taking 6 courses with TESU to dodge the Residency Waiver, but I’m not going that route since taking all of those courses won’t work for my full-time work schedule.  So, I was just wondering about paying for the Cornerstone, Capstone and Residency Waiver Fee.  I take it that not all of this can be covered by grants or student loans?  

I know 6 credits at a time is considered part-time and would only get that much in grants, but since TESU is a monthly enrollment, can I start the Cornerstone in one month, then start the Capstone a month or two later and still get my grants/loans since it would be within a semester timeframe?

I apologize if any of this sounds stupid, but I just want to make sure I am prepared for this financially by the time I get to that point.

  New Spanish CLEP Exam with Writing
Posted by: JWells247 - 7 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

Hello all, 
I am about to register for my first CLEP exam. It is the Spanish CLEP exam and there is now the option to register with the writing portion. This is kind of left field for me. I prepared for only listening and multiple choice and not writing. I am not great with accent marks. Has anyone taken it? How did you do? What should I expect? Thanks.

  "Easier" classes on Straighterline?
Posted by: Clepper43 - 10 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - No Replies

My son is going to take the Bio 1 and lab on Straighterline. Since that class may be more difficult for him, what are some other good classes to pair it with that might be "lighter" load to finish in the time of our membership?

He's kind of a middle of the road guy - good at math but also likes a variety of subjects.

Thanks!

  Undergraduate Certificate at TESU
Posted by: TwinMom - 10 hours ago - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (1)

I know there was a recent post about someone not getting their Certificate approved and accepted even though they were enrolled at TESU. I chatted with them just now and this was the conversation:

Me:   On your site for the Undergraduate certificate in Info Systems it states:  “For non-degree enrolled students, at least 50% of the credits required for an undergraduate certificate must be earned at Thomas Edison State University.”  I take that to mean that as long as I am enrolled in a degree program (say doing my Cornerstone) that i can transfer in all the credits (if approved) to complete my certificate

Lyrisa: Are you saying that you would be earning a degree and a certificate  at the same time?

Me:  yes

Lyrisa: then yes that is correct. 

So........
I’m hesitant to plan For a cert (although we have time) based on the other poster’s experience.  What are your thoughts?

Is it just another: We will have to wait and see what TESU does the next time?

Hi, everyone.

Below are the courses that I've completed. I'm seeking a BA. I've taken college course s for roughly 20 years and would like to say done...at least for now. I am open to school and major.

I've attached a draft in Word and Excel for your convenience.

Any suggestions you can make are greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Smile

  Please Help Me Create a Degree Plan
Posted by: NeverDone - Today, 03:00 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

Hi, everyone.

Below are the courses that I've completed. I'm seeking a BA in whatever...I just want the degree as I've taken college classes since I was 14 years old and suffice it to say, I gave up when I was 34.

I am open to attending TESU or COSC. I am open to suggestions if you think of a better option.

Now a few years later, I began to review the courses I'd completed and feel that I am close so I'd like to close out this chapter of my life, once and for all.

I've attached a draft in Word and Excel for your convenience.

Any suggestions you can make are greatly appreciated.

Thank you. Smile
