I haven't seen this one before:

https://il.wisconsin.edu/

$327 per credit hour and/or $12.50 per CEU.


One thing that is very cool is that most full-time UW system students can take any or all of these classes for free with a tuition waiver.

Someone should register at the cheapest eligible UW campus and try to run the table.

  First Bachelor Milestone officially complete.
Posted by: ChilliDawg - Yesterday, 12:12 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (6)

I just wanted to make a quick post and say "Thank you" to everyone here.   My TESU BALS Diploma was sitting on my doorstep when I got home from dinner last night.  I am sure that I already made a thank you post back when I finished the Capstone a few months ago, but getting that diploma yesterday really made it feel "official".

I am very thankful for this forum, and especially thankful to the dedicated members here who are always answering questions and helping.

Two years ago, I had nothing more than a B&M transcript in my hand, and no clue how to transfer it, or make anything out of it.  Working full time in a Government I.T. job and having a busy family life,  I was not sure that I was ready to spend my evenings and weekends sitting at the local college, trying to finish a degree.  I was Googling for articles on credits, transfers, online degrees, etc.  I somehow stumbled across this forum.  I silently sat back and observed your posts and advice to others.  Then, I started asking questions.  Before long, I was applying at places like Pierpont and TESU, even Charter Oak.  Doing Academic Evals, and crunching numbers.  Searching for Straighterline Coupons, taking TEEX classes, Institutes Courses, registering for ACE Transcript Services, etc.. etc..  I even received the Study.Com Guardian scholarship.  All while DREADING the inevitable Capstone.   Here I sit, two years later with two Associates and a B.A.L.S under my belt.  All because I landed............RIGHT HERE on this forum.

Oddly enough, I am not satisfied. Although a Bachelor(any Bachelor) was my initial goal in order to check the proverbial Human Resources box, and I have now completed it, I am eager to forge on.  I am getting anxious that I am not taking a course, presently.  I think I have decided upon WGU's MSCSIA.  My employer has already approved it, and is eager to compensate.

I really believe this forum is underrated, but I sure am thankful for it.  I always looked forward to posting a completion thread, thanking you all for the help.  But, we will instead have to refer to it as a MILESTONE thread.  I am nowhere near complete.

  Current Return on Earning a College Degree
Posted by: sanantone - Yesterday, 10:39 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (3)

Due to rising costs, the return on earning a college degree has slightly ticked down to 14%. However, the gap between how much college graduates and high graduates earn remains much higher than it was 30 years ago. The average high school graduate earns $45,000. The average college graduate earns $78,000. Don't ask me how the New York Federal Reserve Bank got these numbers. LOL. If I had to guess the numbers for my state, I'd say that many college graduates could easily get to $60k after several years. A high school graduate would probably make $30k.

  HBX Becomes "Harvard Business School Online"
Posted by: Jonathan Whatley - Yesterday, 09:09 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

The online non-degree continuing education unit of Harvard Business School previously branded as HBX or Harvard Business X is rebranding to "Harvard Business School Online."

The School Online tells holders of HBX certificates, "your LinkedIn profile will automatically change to Harvard Business School Online (as long you chose the pre-set HBX credential when you originally added it to your profile). If you did not choose that option, you may manually update your LinkedIn profile and / or resume to reflect the new Harvard Business School Online name." Another FAQ: "Am I now an alum of Harvard Business School? No, if you've completed a course with HBX or Harvard Business School Online, you are a certificate holder, not a graduate nor an alumnus/alumnae."

  BAT Degree
Posted by: natshar - Yesterday, 12:07 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (5)

What do you guys think of a BAT Degree? It's a Bachelor of Applied Technology it's like an AAS (associates of applied science) but for a Bachelor's degree. They are becoming more popular. I just wanted to know if people had heard of them and if they would be as valuable as a BA or BS degree in the workplace.

Has anybody here used  any of these sources to gain college credit?

Coursera
Udacity
Alison
Courses.com
AcademicEarth

Or anything similar?

Coursera, for instance has pages hosted by specific universities:

coursera.org/duke (I don't think this will show up as a live link, but if it does and shouldn't please kill the link.)

There's got to be a way, right?

  Onlinedegree credit equivalency

Does anyone know which of onlinedegree's classes are being accepted for credit at TESU? Specifically, I'm wondering if the biology class could be used as a physical & natural world requirement, and the intro to programming as the computer science AOS requirement.

  DSST Principles of Public Speaking
Posted by: MrsIrie - 06-15-2019, 11:03 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

Can anyone advise who administers Part 2 of this exam?  I finished part 1 but the testing center told me they could not do part 2.  I live in Texas but travel frequently and can hit up a testing center almost anywhere.  

Help??

TIA
