  BABA MAT 140 Requirement and Learning Objective 3A, 3B - Covered by Sophia Calculus?
Posted by: FM1 - 8 hours ago - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - No Replies

I have read that the Sophia Calculus has previously been accepted for: 1) MAT140 requirement for a BABA, and 2) Learning Objective 3A, and 3) Learning Objective 3B. Is there a way to validate if this is still the case?

Source for MAT140: https://www.degreeforum.net/mybb/Thread-...#pid382129 (Post 7)

  How often Study.com transcript to TESU?
Posted by: Carnation - 10 hours ago - Forum: TESU - Thomas Edison State University Discussion - Replies (2)

I'm assuming we have to ask that a transcript be sent to TESU from Study.com.
Based on that, how often should we be requesting that happen?

  UMPI Entrance 'Interview'
Posted by: mohelena02 - Yesterday, 03:48 PM - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - Replies (1)

Hello everyone,

My brother applied to UMPI - he has an AAS from Pierpont. Previously he has two failed stints at community college which hit his GPA hard.

He just got an email from UMPI with interview questions, Jessica stated that because his GPA was low that was a requirement that they have.

Anyone ever run into this? He replied to the questions best he could and emailed her back same day.

Current Regional Accredited Credits: 
BUS 230 Principles of Finance

EGL 101 Composition I

MKT 131 Principles of Marketing

PSY 101 Introduction To Psychology 

(12 credit hours total)

Current ACE, CLEP, or NCCRS Credits: none, but willing to take as many

I’m really looking for a school where I can “quickly” get a degree to someday get CFP designation. 

I plan on being a financial advisor and don’t want to spend years waiting to get a degree. 

I also want to graduate from a school that is somewhat known. I’m well aware of like WGU, but that degree isn’t seen too reputable in the finance community. I have seen someone say Penn State here, but I’m unsure how long that’ll take.

  Virginia University of Lynchburg Accreditation on Warning
Posted by: Jonathan Whatley - Yesterday, 10:47 AM - Forum: Doctorate Degree Discussion - Replies (8)

The Transnational Assocation of Christian Colleges and Schools (TRACS), its national institutional accreditor, recently changed Virginia University of Lynchburg's status from "Accredited" to "Accredited – Warning."

TRACS states that the reason for the change concerns financial reporting. TRACS requires VUL to submit its 2022 audit, an engagement letter and estimated time of completion for its 2023 audit, and a report detailing how it will adjust its auditing procedures to deliver timely audited financial statements to TRACS no later than November 30 each year.

VUL is a brick-and-mortar HBCU dating to 1866, and also well known here for its affordable online Doctor of Healthcare Administration.

  Confused about Credly/ACE!
Posted by: yc1981 - Yesterday, 12:12 AM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (4)

Hi guys! I'm super lost. I went to submit my ACE transcript from a few years ago to a new college and found it doesn't exist anymore. Apparently I was supposed to give authorization to ACE to move all my credits to Credly back in 2020. But I never got an email about it and now it's too late. I emailed both Credly and ACE and got canned replies where the person responding to me assumes I just recently took a course and am looking for my RECENT Credly badge. I can't seem to get anyone to understand that my credits are from years ago (2017-2020) and that I am trying to get badges for OLD ACE credits that were already granted thru ACE. I have been going in circles for weeks with no luck. Is anyone able to tell me how to go about doing this? I specifically need my ALEKS one. I guess if I really have to I can contact Study.com/Straighterline/Sophia all individually to get help from them. But the ALEKS program I used, I don't even think it's accredited anymore (??) so I'm worried I might have to take all my algebra over again and want to avoid that if at all possible!  Blush Thank you!!

  Increase in YourPace Programs
Posted by: Mint Berry Crunch - 11-27-2023, 11:40 PM - Forum: UMPI - University of Maine at Presque Isle Discussion - Replies (5)

Hey everyone,

Just did some more digging for a paper I was writing, and I found this report that provides some insight into what the future holds for UMPI and its programs. I was aware of the Health Administration, but there are a couple more that I was unaware of.

Increasing need for more YourPace programs. 

"UMPI plans in August 2021 to submit a Substantive Change request to allow Criminal Justice and English: Professional Communication to deliver its programming in the CBE modality. It plans to submit a subsequent request in August 2022 to deliver Cybersecurity and Psychology, with Computer Science and Health Administration scheduled for proposals in 2023."

Here is the link for the report

I'd be really interested in the Computer Science and even Health Administration programs!
