  Any Canadians Around? Koodo or Public Mobile Referral Needed
Posted by: bjcheung77 - 04-21-2019, 11:00 AM - Forum: Off Topic - No Replies

Hi All, I hate to ask, but are there any Canadians around on this board?  

I am going to use a Canadian Carrier Koodo and their sister carrier, Public Mobile.

Looking to get a referral as it will net myself $50 and the referrer $50.

I am looking for PM as well.  Sorry for taking up your time.  Thanks!

  Military waiver for residency charge at tesu
Posted by: Zachcleigh - 04-21-2019, 02:45 AM - Forum: Military Discussion - Replies (1)

as active duty military do you have to pay the residency waiver at tesu? Or is that cost waived because of active service? I’m getting mixed information on this topic.

  Civic Engagement
Posted by: PAMHarris - 04-20-2019, 07:47 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

Does anyone have any experience with Intercultural Communications meeting the Civic Engagement requirement at TESU? I have taken American Government, but need it in my AOS for my Political Science major (same with Comparative Politics/Government).  I took Intercultural Communications at a CC and I was wondering if it would work.

  Still no cheap Associates anymore, right?
Posted by: jsd - 04-20-2019, 04:25 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (18)

A buddy of mine with an unrelated Bachelors and Masters (in GIS) is looking to get an associates in Computer Science to boost his career change opportunities (he has professional CS experience, he's not going into it blind). 

He's asking about an associates in CS, and is not in a state where he can do this cheaply. Are there better CS specific opportunities for him to do this quickly? A WGU  bachelors is an option, but seeing as how his gen ed is done, an AA/AS in CS could just be 5 courses or so at a community college, whereas a BS at WGU is probably a lengthier process and overkill. He just needs a checkbox sort of thing.

He has tuition reimbursement for $4k/yr through his employer (but not for alt-credit). Doesn't need a Bachelors/Masters, Associates is enough to boost the resume.

  Dine College: $55 per credit hour
Posted by: eriehiker - 04-20-2019, 04:03 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (16)

I don't remember seeing this college on the forum.

Dine College is a college in Navajo-populated areas on the border of Arizona, NM, Colorado and Utah.

I have no experience with the college, but it appears to have a tuition of $55 per credit hour and a reasonable selection of online classes.

  WGUs integrated physical science requirement
Posted by: dicetomato1 - 04-20-2019, 03:41 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (1)

Anyone have experience satisfying this requirement for wgu? Does astronomy or geology work? Would rather not take chemistry or physics. I'm thinking astronomy dsst or study.com also chemistry shows up as non transferable for the secondary biology teachers program.

  Equivalent transferable credits to WGU
Posted by: pingmanping - 04-20-2019, 09:49 AM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (14)


I planning to take the BS in Cybersecurty that WGU is offering. I have spoken to an enrollment counselor and I was told that I do not have to take the placement test and can directly start taking classes.

I am currently researching if I can test out of WGU's General Education Courses and maybe some of the main courses, but I am more concern about the GE courses because I know very well I am not good at these courses.

I enrolled at Straigtherline back in 2018, but found the material very lacking of information. What I mean by this is when I took some exercises, I could not verify my answers if they are correct or wrong. Plus, it is so confusing the way SL laid out their materials. Anyways, my current plan is to take CLEP or something similar exams to earn transferable credits, but I do not know where I can get training materials for the exams that I can transfer to WGU. I don't even know what specific exams I should be taking. I asked my enrollment counselor about CLEP and he simply dodged my question. My guess is because CLEP is not a WGU partner.

Here is what I currently have in regards to transferable IT certifications:
Cisco CCNA (R&S, Security, Wireless) and CCNP R&S
CompTIA A+, Network+ and Security+

I found this Saylor Academy transfer pathway agreement https://partners.wgu.edu/Pages/Single.as...69&pid=78#
Also, for Straighterline https://partners.wgu.edu/Pages/Single.as...53&pid=78#

Straighterline will probably my last resort due to my experience with their provided study materials. The Saylor Academy has crazy estimated study hours and the materials are like deep dive. However, Saylor Academy I think it is more organized (compare to SL) and offers a cheap way to get credits. My plan of action is to take some SA exams but use maybe Khan Academy's AP study materials for studying.

So far this is what I think the equivalent courses and approach based on WGU BS Cybersecurity General Education:

  • English Composition I and English Composition II -CLEP College Composition exam and this should cover both I and II. Study materials from Modern States College Composition
  • Introduction to Communication - no idea
  • Technical Communication - no idea
  • Applied Algebra - For study materials, I will be using Khan Academy Algebra I & II. For the exams, Saylor Academy MA001
  • Applied Probability and Statistics - For study materials, I will be using Khan Academy Statistics & Probability. For the exams, Saylor Academy MA121
  • Integrated Physical Sciences -  For study materials, I will be using Khan Academy AP Chemistry. For the exams, Saylor Academy CHEM101
  • Ethics in Technology - no idea
  • Introduction to Geography - For study materials, I will be using Khan Academy AP Macroeconomics. For the exams, Saylor Academy ECON101
  • American Politics and the US Constitution - no idea
  • Critical Thinking and Logic - no idea

I preferred video materials because of my commute to work is an average of 60 minutes in the morning and about 1.5 hours on the way home. And if it is a video, I could listen while I get free time at work. I am not planning to take the long road. I have a full-time job (+ 2.5 hours commute) and a part-time job. I am working on my AWS certification and plan to get this AWS before 2020. I just want to get this done as fast as I can, but learn as I go.

Do the materials I put together make sense or are they even correct?
What about the courses I don't know the exams and study materials?
Do you have better study materials and exams you would recommend?

Thank you

Please help me to figure out which degree would be the fastest way for a family member to get any degree with the following classes he has taken. He would like to stick with TESU, unless you know of a less expensive degree he can get. 

Thank you
