You can see a lot of data about how much degree holders make by major and location. It's interesting to see how much or little difference a grad degree makes in some areas. Just thought some of you might find it interesting, or possibly useful if you're still deciding next steps in your education.

  Clep or UEXCEL
Posted by: Jsheets15 - 4 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (4)

I am enrolled at Excelsior. I see a lot of UEXCEL exams that have equal CLEPs or DSSTs. Yet I don't see much UEXCEL feedback on here or anywhere. Any reasons to take a CLEP or DSST over a UEXCEL exam?

  Different course equivilents at different colleges and transfers
Posted by: jjsafari - 5 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (4)

Hello All,

At 1 school I attended the CLEP College Math counts as MAT-110, At another school I attended it counts as MAT-143.

My question is if I send the scores to both institutions and then send the transcript from one to the other will it include the credit for the other course? Possibly receiving credit for 2 classes for the one test? Just curious if that is how it would work out, of if the credit for the CLEP would even show on the transcript

  Course approval
Posted by: garrettburton - 9 hours ago - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, Shmoop.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (4)

So I am looking at straighterline courses as a way to finish up a few courses for my degree. My school (weber state) is on the partnered list of ACE according to their site. But, I didn't see if straightliner is approved, would I have to just check with my school and possibly do an equivalency credit form to get it to transfer over?

  What do you think about cheap online tutoring?
Posted by: burbuja0512 - Yesterday, 10:28 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

Hi all - 

I have never used a tutor, and until recently would not have considered it.  However, I have a really stubborn 10-year-old who won't take math help from anyone.   So, I cautiously looked into it thinking that I could find a discount from college students or alternative options.

What I found was that there are some REALLY COOL online tutors out there!   Did you know that you can find a tutor for as low as $4/hour on some sites? The low prices are even for tutors with advanced degrees and higher-level professionals.

I know that this could be considered a little controversial because it is outsourcing some jobs to other countries.  I'm not trying to advocate this at all.  I just wanted to mention it because we all are here trying to share ways to save money on our education.  I was able to finish my degree with the help of just the resources found here and suggested by members here.  Not everyone is as lucky, and if you've only got $20 to spend, 5 hours with an expert could actually help you make serious progress on your topic.  (And break it into 30 minutes sessions and really stretch your dime!)

We ended up finding an AMAZING tutor from Venezuela who is super enthusiastic and after one session, my 10-year-old is excited about his new-found math ability.   I'm impressed and happy that I took the risk.  And as a bonus, I'll be able to afford the tutor for as much time as is needed.

Heart Assistance with degree choice, please?
Posted by: Cheeseburrito - Yesterday, 10:20 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (7)

Hi all!
I don't know where to begin, so please forgive me if I jump around a lot or don't make much sense.

I am 33 years old. I did not graduate HS, I received my GED in Canada when I was 19. I moved to the US when I was 18.

I've worked in marketing and management since I was 16 for internet companies. When I was 26 I had a bit of a midlife crisis and changed my life-path. Given my limited education I chose to take an EMT course. Years later I received my NREMT Paramedic, which is what I've been doing for 5 years now. This has inspired me to become a PA (Physician Assistant).

My goal right now is to get a BS utilizing life experience, past credit, tests outs (SL/Study.com/Shmoop) to get my 4 year degree done so I can focus on my Pre-PA studies, and then get into Yale PA Online.

Currently I am working on applying to UNM for their EMS degree however they need 24 credits to transfer, then will award 47 for my NREMT-P license. They are currently evaluating my Shmoop ACE transcript to determine if any qualify.

This made me question if this is the best degree and school to pursue a degree with, and if I may have other options that will get me through my undergrad quicker.

Education:
- GED
- EMT
- NREMT - Paramedic

Do you see anything that jumps out as a good path? Any schools in particular that may give more credit that others for my experiences/education?
Thank you so much for any help you may be able to provide!

Once you register for a CSU Global CBE, how long do you have access before you have to take the exam?

I know this has been mentioned before, but I can't find it.

  TEEX tests don't flow to ACE Transcript?
Posted by: NicoleSolomita - Yesterday, 03:51 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (10)

Hi! 

I just took the first of the 3 TEEX classes -AWR-168-W Cyber Law and White Collar Crime -while I was able to print a certificate, I was unable to find the course, or the other two FREE TEEX courses, on the ACE transcript website. So, I am unable to add these courses to my transcript? Will TESU accept the printable certificate in lieu of the ACE transcript? I also want to add that it says 1 CE credit, not 2 credits as I previously thought?
 TIA!

  COSC, Excelsior Question - Transfer from one source
Posted by: Lewis.Yim - Yesterday, 03:29 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (4)

Good Afternoon!  COSC emailed my info, waiting for Excelsior evaluation.  I looked at the information in my preliminary evaluation and have a few questions. Thank you again for those who can try to assist in answering them.

Does the school have a transfer limit from one particular source?  Example, 90 credits max from alternative methods or exams such as CLEP?  I am going to be completing a few ACE recommended for credit courses from Saylor, Shmoop, and Study.com, then sending my transcripts.

I will be sending in NFA/FEMA/TEEX too.  Can I send all transcripts from those through ACE or can it be sent in directly from the course providers?   Is there a time limit before I start enrolling?  In other words, is there a specific date I have to enroll at Charter Oak or Excelsior, can I finish those first?

Note: I am doing a BALS NSM at TESU, but thinking of changing that something easier if I get more credits at COSC/EC.
COSC Bachelors in General Studies - Info Systems Studies and the Excelsior BS Professional Studies - Info Technology.
