  Audit and Taxation online
Posted by: Cofffeee - 08-19-2019, 09:18 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (8)

Hi Does anyone know and can advise online affordable 8 weeks( or so , maybe credit by exam) audit and taxation courses at any regionally accredited universities (or exam providers)? I need to add extra courses for CPA education requirements but a lot of it are either long or around $1500 per course which is almost a term fee for some universities. Thanks Shy

  Degree by May?
Posted by: amberwalk - 08-18-2019, 10:34 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (11)

Needing some help with a degree plan.  My daughter, 18, will be graduating this year.  Next year she plans to attend a local ministry school that isnt accredited ($$$).  They have a partnership with Southeastern University for an Associates or bachelors in Christian Ministry.  Classes from SEU will be the ONLY classes allowed to transfer in to the program.  With the demands of the program she will not be able to do double coursework to obtain the degree from SEU so we want her to finish a degree this year before attending the ministry program. Please help me with a degree plan that will take the least amount of time and take the credits she already has, 36 credits total
Currently taking from SEU to lighten the course-load later :
Theo 2132 Christian Thought
Core 1001 Christian Calling
Bible 1433 Old Testament Survey
Bible 1533 New Testament Survey
(12 Credits)
Liberty: English 100, I dont know if it will transfer (3 credits)
Bluefield College:  BUS ? Computer Applications (3 credits)
Sophia:
Managing conflict 1 
Dev Effective Teams 1
Student Success 1
College Algebra 3
Visual Communication 3
Biology 3
Art History 3
Psychology 3
(18 credits)
note: we are not planning to CLEP any classes

  Sophia Ancient Greek not for COSC?

I would like to do Sophia Ancient Greek (with my 50 off coupon). But it is not in the transfer to COSC list on the Sophia website. So this mean it dont transfer?

  Saylor Vs Study.com Vs SL, etc
Posted by: cecilgambe7 - 08-18-2019, 11:12 AM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (22)

So, im doing my first "proctored" exam course at Saylor.org, ECON101 - Principles of Microeconomics

The course is pretty nice, im learning a lot new things, but to be honest it is taking to me a lot of time, now i finish the part 5 of 7 and based on Saylor progress-meter i reach 71% progress with the courses, i start with this about 10 days ago and i think it will takes me about 13-14 day to complete it.

Two courses per month it is not as bad for me, but when i start with this, based on what i read at the forum, i think that 5 courses per month was posibble.

So, i dont know if this low progress is because of Saylor.org courses "style" and i can do courses in faster way if i use study.com or SL.

So my question is, are courses faster in Study.com/SL that saylor.org??

  Enrollment 13 year old
Posted by: homeschoolmom1 - 08-18-2019, 06:14 AM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (8)

If a 13 year old wants to enroll in College just to have College-student status (for whatever reason), would he/she be able to do that with Excelsior (COSC and TESU are out because of age)? The idea would be to just enroll but not take any courses with Excelsior, spend a few years obtaining additional credits through our known alternative ways, then unenroll at Excelsior without every having taken a course there and actually complete the degree at COSC at the age of 16. Is that possible? If so, what would be the annual cost of maintaining enrolled status at Excelsior?

  New Provider: Outlier.org
Posted by: Sapientes - 08-17-2019, 01:16 PM - Forum: Saylor.org, Straighterline, Study.com, Ed4Credit.com, OnlineDegree.com, Sophia.Org Discussion - Replies (10)

Just saw a new online provider is now available named Outlier. Here's what I've been able to find out so far:

  • Only 2 courses available at the moment (Calculus 1 & Intro to Psychology) with more courses planned
  • Each is $400, at least for now (Can't use financial aid)
  • College credit is earned via the University of Pittsburgh (typically 3 credits)
  • They will refund all of your money if you don't pass
  • You can request a refund within the first 2 weeks of a starting class
  • Classes are on a 14 week schedule with a fixed start date and are NOT self-paced - at least for now
  • Each class is led by an instructor, typically with a Ph.D., and taught via recorded lectures
  • At least for the calculus class, you can switch between instructors at anytime
  • Free tutoring and student study groups are available at set times, not on-demand
Looks very promising and may be a good alternative for those that have struggled with other providers (SL, SDC, etc).

  Business Law CLEP
Posted by: natshar - 08-17-2019, 12:34 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - No Replies

What are your best study resources and tips for the business law CLEP? I already know modern states but I am not sure that will be sufficient enough.

I have no knowledge or interest on the subject and I plan on taking the test in about 3 weeks. I also need to score at least a 57 for credit. With the right preparation would this be a reasonable goal? I am not sure how rigorous this test is and what is the best way to prepare. I can extend the timeline out if needed but I'd prefer to take it in 3 weeks or less.

And on another note, are the micro and macro economics cleps difficult? Compared to other cleps how they compare in terms of difficulty? Is a lot of it common sense?

  Something "fun" for free credits/electives
Posted by: amberwalk - 08-17-2019, 12:32 PM - Forum: General Education and Testing Discussion - Replies (5)

Are there any providers that offer anything other than core type classes besides coppersmith for credit?  Interested is design, culinary, fashion, or just for general enjoyment instead of a required or core type class.  I love the format of SDC but they don't offer much besides a few hospitality courses.  If coppersmith is just read the text and take the test, that's not enjoyable at all.  Any ideas?

  A Cert in Info Systems at TESU
Posted by: TwinMom - 08-17-2019, 12:22 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (2)

From a previous thread:

"Many people get an BA and an Associates for only 120 credits and don't need more courses. The thing that can't overlap is the Area of Study "

Does this apply to earning a Cert as well? I'm considering (for my boys) an ASNSM in Computer Science as well as a Cert in Info Systems as well as a BALS.  It looks like some of the classes could overlap between the AS and the Cert.

TIA
