  Need to do exactly 3 courses
Posted by: tendrils - 08-21-2019, 03:45 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (17)

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 - 08-21-2019, 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.

  Masters In Business Analytics after MBA
Posted by: martialartist - 08-20-2019, 04:26 PM - Forum: Graduate School Discussion - Replies (6)

So, I was just accepted into the University of Texas Rio Grand Valley Masters in Business Analytics (AACSB-accredited). I completed my MBA at ENMU.EDU two years ago and now want to add to my journey with a data driven masters. the programme is not particularly cheap at 472.43 per credit (33), but certainly not a bad name to add to one's resume. I have been accepted to every programme applied for since Excelsior, Including Columbia Uni.

What are your thoughts about this programme, I know GATECH offer a much cheaper option with great name recognition on Udacity and Coursera. I have been tempted to pursue NAU masters in computer information technology with focus in data analytics which cost 3k for a 6 months subscription. Any thoughts?

I participated in the College Acceleration Summit of 2019 and got a free voucher, valid for any DSST exam. I'm maxed out on undergrad credits, so I'm giving it away. The first person who posts on this thread with the name of the DSST exam they'd like to take will get the voucher code via private message. Thank you Smile

  Transcript GPA
Posted by: darthweezy - 08-20-2019, 07:52 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (8)

I searched and saw many threads about how GPA is calculated from TESU but I didn't see this specific verbiage so I wasn't quite sure what the answer it.  

Most of my credits have been via test out so I understand those wont have any GPA associated with them.  The only two classes I will have from TESU are the SOS-110 and Capstone.  I have roughly 20 credits that transferred in from my local CC that are at a 2.0 ( Undecided).  Assuming I do well on the SOS and Capstone I understand the GPA on the transcript will still only reflect those two classes.  To be admitted for the program to get an alternative teaching certificate in Texas the programs require the statement below.  Am I right in thinking that the two classes from TESU will be the "undergrad GPA" or does it likely mean a cumulative GPA?

Minimum 2.5 GPA or At Least a 2.5 in The Last 60 Semester Credit Hours

Minimum 2.50 GPA (your undergraduate GPA as posted on conferred degree transcript), or.
Minimum 2.50 GPA in last 60 hours.
Your graduating GPA must be calculated and posted by the university on your official transcripts.

  CLEP: Pros vs. Cons?
Posted by: BrighterFuture88 - 08-20-2019, 07:46 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (6)

Hey all!  Next week I will be taking my College Composition CLEP Exam and then going to knock out the Analyzing & Interpreting Literature CLEP, but curious as to the benefits of CLEP vs. the current popular route of using SL/SDC/Sophia/etc. for obtaining credits?  I have read through a lot of past posts on here that showcase a variety of feelings on CLEP and thought it would be nice to have a central topic to discuss whether or not people still view these tests as a logical option.  From what I have gathered: 

Pros: 
- Not having to take the course
- If you are great at studying, then this is the option
- Testing & Admin costs paid for by ModernStates
- Far more cost effective if you can test out

Cons: 
- For some, it’s easier to test out at Straighterline
- Abysmal testing dates for a lot of universities (My local one close by only does every other Wednesday at 1PM)
- If you fail, you can’t take the exam again until three months later
- Cost-wise, it’s more than a course if you have an SL membership and have to pay for your test or choose to not use MS for a voucher

What are everyones’ opinions here?  Personally, I’m not great at test-taking, but going through ModernStates and attempting a CLEP with some studying isn’t a bad solution.  When I pass this College Composition exam, that’s my English Comp. I & II all factored in so I can move-on to other things.  With studying every day for 3-4 hours and 2 weeks of studying via IC, Peterson’s & MS, that’s not bad for two courses.
