  What can transfer to WGU Teaching Program???
Posted by: Idreamofadegree - 34 minutes ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (2)

Is anyone on here familiar with what alternative forms of credit (courses) will transfer in to WGU's teaching program?  Specifically the BA in Elementary education?  I have searched the forum for days looking into this and have only been able to find one thread from 2017 where someone shared the journey of doing the middle school math certification with WGU.  

Ideally, I would like to find something that shows exactly what is/was accepted by WGU to apply towards the teaching program requirements.  I ask this because WGU seems to state that once you send transcripts, get evaluated and start their program,  you can no longer transfer in anything else in.  Therefore, getting a clear understanding of what exactly CAN BE transferred that would meet the requirements for this program is vital. 

So, if there is anyone on here who has experience or knowledge of acceptable courses that can share that info, I would greatly appreciate the help!  I would like to start a list to see the max amount of courses to get started in this program.  I'm hoping there is someone out there who has knowledge....I know there is limited info on here for this path specifically.

TIA

  University of Oklahoma Price College of Business - MS in Finance
Posted by: ThatBankDude - 1 hour ago - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - No Replies

I will utilize this thread to post information regarding the MS in Finance program in the Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma. This is the first 8 week term and I am taking Financial Management and Financial Accounting. We utilize Canvas for everything such as discussion boards, homework, quizzes and exams. All of these are done asynchronously. For the live sessions we use Zoom and it is done synchronously. For Financial Management we have live session every Monday from 7 PM to 9 PM and for Financial Accounting we have live sessions every Thursday from 7 PM to 9 PM. So far the program is PHENOMENAL. The amount of reading seems tedious but the profresslrs are top notch. My Financial Management professor has his PhD from Texas Tech and my Financial Account professor has his MS and PhD from Stanford. As the program goes on, I will update and if anyone has any questions, I would be more than happy to answer them! Smile

  BALS Criminal Justice concentration questions.
Posted by: Acaidian - 11 hours ago - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (3)

Hello, everyone! firstly, I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but I couldn't really find anything so I thought I would ask.

I've been thinking of doing the criminal justice concentration, but have some questions. Looking at the known credit equivalencies from all the TEEX courses and study.com courses. It looks like it can easily be completed. Except for 1 missing UL. So I was wondering if any of you know any other places that I'm missing that can give me the third needed UL for the concentration. Thank you much for your time!

  TESU audit dates? Chances for early graduation?
Posted by: pws - Today, 12:26 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (4)

I need to graduate in December. I currently have 5 courses left, which I'll be completing and transferring by October. I'll be doing the September Capstone, which officially ends November 24. 

I was told that, except for the Capstone, if I can have all of my courses completed and transferred by October, and that my Capstone is audited during the last week of November, I'll be able to make it for the December graduation. What are the chances that this will be possible?

I'm guessing that this follows the audit dates. How many audits are there, and what are the audits dates during the month?

  [TESU BSIT] Help with a degree plan, please
Posted by: Lightorb333 - Yesterday, 07:18 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (1)

Hello, hope you are doing well,

I am planning on working towards a degree for a BS in IT at - TESU link here: https://www.tesu.edu/ast/programs/bs/it

I want to know how I can find the course equivalent requirements for the courses. For example for Written Communication, which two courses do I take from Saylor,Straighterline, etc. Not just that I pretty much need all them

This is what really is holding me back from starting.

Also before registering to TESU can I start accumulating credits and If so were do these credits go? Is there some type of credit bank or do you just need send proof of the course completion to TESU.

Best regards,

  100% test out of BA/BS possible?
Posted by: flotsamjotsam - Yesterday, 07:01 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (7)

Hello!  I'm new to the forums and I'm still learning and figuring all this out.  So I just want to thank anyone who takes their time to respond and point me in the right direction.

Basically, I need a bachelor's degree in anything just to show that I have one.  I came across something about completely testing out of a bachelor's degree in less than a year for $5-$10 grand, and that led me here to these forums.

Is this truly possible?  I read that some of these universities have limited the amount of credits you can transfer to 114-117 and you're now required to take a cornerstone and capstone class.  Is there a regionally accredited university in which I can completely test out without taking a single class?  If possible what are my degree options?  General studies?  Completely testing out specifically got my attention because papers, projects, and essays are nightmare fuel.  I'd feel much more confident studying and passing a test.


For some background, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do out of high school, ended up passing on university, and I've spent the last decade caring for nieces and nephews, some of which are special needs.  I'm currently at a point in my life where I'd like to get away and do something with and for myself.

I'm looking into becoming an ALT (assistant language teacher) in Asia, I've always wanted to spend time over there but never really thought I'd get the chance.  However, there are a number of teach abroad programs and job listings that I've been looking at that don't require any professional experience but require a BA/BS (in any field) and that you be a native English speaker.  If I can manage to get a bachelor's degree relatively quick, easy, and on the cheap, I plan on getting TEFL (teaching English as a foriegn language) certification and trying my luck with a program.

That's my situation, if you have any knowledge or advice to drop, please share!

  University of London distance learning Masters?
Posted by: NolaRice - Yesterday, 05:55 PM - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - No Replies

I've been looking at University of London for masters' degrees. They have a lot of options that are reasonable in cost, and some of the schools under the UoL umbrella have top-notch reputations.

Does anyone have any experience with any of these programs?

  Need to do exactly 3 courses
Posted by: tendrils - Yesterday, 03:45 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (10)

I'm a state employee and to get a promotion to the next class, I need exactly three college courses, Business Law, Elementary and Intermediate Accounting from an accredited institution. I already have a bachelor's degree. I was hoping to figure out how to get these credits ASAP (preferably within 3-4 days as I am a finalist for that position and I may lose list eligibility if they figure out I don't have those courses). What's the easiest way to push Saylor/Straighterline/whatever onto a transcript, any transcript?

  TESU BSBA Degrees.
Posted by: terryd5150 - Yesterday, 12:25 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (2)

My question is regarding the actual TESU degree: the physical diploma & transcripts awarded upon completion of one of the BSBA options.

This is not a question of curriculum or how the various concentrations differ from each other.



For example: if someone earns a BSBA in Finance, how do the actual diploma & transcripts denote this?

Does the diploma say Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance, or does it simply state Bachelor of Science in Business Administration?

How would you correctly denote this degree on a resume? 

"BSBA: Finance", or "Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance"?



While subtle, that delineation can have a profound impact on how potential employers would interpret your educational experience.

There's a different impact in saying someone is a finance major vs. someone is a business major with a finance concentration.



This subtlety can have dramatic impact on how employers view someone, as being a classified as a business major can almost be labeled as a "kiss of death" in some industries.    



Anyone that's completed a BSBA with a concentration is welcomed to chime in.
