  TESU BSBA HR Management/Organizational Management
Posted by: tpell1219 - 08-16-2019, 05:58 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (2)

Hello. I have a question about the HR Management/Organizational Management degree program. Initially I was going to do the BSBA General Management but my HR manager at work advised me against it. (I work in healthcare) So my current plan is to do HR Management/ Organizational Management and then take the Healthcare Management classes. I have my general education classes complete I’m just working on the UL credits. For UL I took Employment Law and Strategic Human Resources Management. I’m hoping to take Industrial Psychology if it’s UL. My question is that in the required subjects list it states I must take Human Resources Management, Organizational Behavior and Organizational Theory or Organizational Development and Change. Do these classes need to be UL? I have taken Organizational Behavior LL.and I have 20 more modules on study.com to complete Human Resources Management LL. Any help you guys can give is appreciated!!(Sorry about the layout..I’m typing on my iPad).

  Question about mooc
Posted by: Imbanewbie - 08-16-2019, 03:05 PM - Forum: Off Topic - Replies (2)

Hi I want to know if you think carry any weight on your resume by taking multiple mooc courses like lynda, edx and coursera. I am taking some mooc courses and I am think do it carry weight? If it does not help too much, I rather spend time to get legit professional certification. Also I don't want to take too many courses it will show to easy to get mooc certification and it will make my resume less value.

  Question about TESU's Residency Waiver
Posted by: amaquiling - 08-16-2019, 10:00 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (10)

After calculating the costs of paying the residency fee vs. taking courses at TESU to waive the fee, with my employer's tuition benefit, I found that the cost would be about the same. However, when planning out my courses for the upcoming term, I found that I would be 1cr short of the 16cr needed. 

Has anyone had this fee waived with only 15 credits taken at TESU? Alternatively, does anyone know of 1cr courses (besides the Medical Terminology course) that can be used to fulfill this?

  Recommended study material for DSST Cyber Security
Posted by: Jccano00 - 08-16-2019, 08:41 AM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - Replies (4)

Hello all,

I'm gearing up to tackle the DSST Cyber Security for a UL class at TESU, however I'm looking for recommended materials to study for this exam.  I've read mixed reviews from the Peterson's guide on Amazon, and i'm hoping to hear your experiences to find the best book to read before sitting for the exam.  I've been in IT for a while now, with a varied background: networking, VoIP & Windows support.  

Thanks in advance

  Cosc - social media course as communication?
Posted by: bethanyneedsajob - 08-15-2019, 11:31 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

Does anyone know if "Intro to Social Media" from NMJC would count as one of the COSC Communication check box courses? My adviser at NMJC seems to think that's an easy course and suggested that I add it if I wanted to up my credits. My main goal is to complete my BS in Biology or some such concentration through COSC liberal/general studies degree. I have pell money available and not a lot of cash, so I'm going this route for now while I work on some of the really inexpensive courses (OD, InstantCert, etc).

  Excelsior written english requirement
Posted by: glgamerica - 08-15-2019, 05:29 PM - Forum: Excelsior, Thomas Edison, and Charter Oak Specific Discussion - No Replies

My son has been working on a degree map I put together a while back that he's been working on since before he was 16 years old. He's now a senior in high school. Here's the map:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1CJEW10sjVQQ-VbTFfkhv_LIiicULMyJxIXm8YODpQmA/edit?usp=sharing

We went ahead and applied this week and I got his unofficial review back from Excelsior today. It only took a day or two to get back. Everything except one thing I had mapped in matched perfectly to the degree map I had created.

The only problem was with the written english requirement. I had mapped in the Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition to satisfy that requirement. When I saw it wasn't there, I contacted the school to ask why that was missing. While I was on the phone the counselor checked with the evaluator who indicated that it should count and it would be corrected. Then, later in the day, I got a call from admissions that it couldn't count because it was taken after 2016.

While I'm certainly happy everything else mapped in correctly, I'm a little frustrated because right in the current school catalog on page 7 it says all the ways you can satisfy the written english requirement including:

Advanced Placement (AP) English
Examinations (fulfills the requirement for
the associate and bachelor’s degrees)


I had even contacted the school prior to my son's junior year and asked about it as well and the admissions department checked with an evaluator and said it would satisfy the requirement.

Since it's 6 credit hours, obviously it's disappointing. 

My son's goal is to graduate from high school and college at the same time and we are pretty much on track so this is a wrinkle I hadn't expected which might delay us. I'd say the most frustrating thing about this process with Excelsior is that it very difficult to map out a degree unless you talk to an advisor and you can never do that until you enroll. I could see maybe if you were talking about degree concentration but this is just the general education part of the degree.

Anyway, when I was in college I was able to petition the school for a couple of exceptions that were granted. I was wondering if anyone has petitioned Excelsior for exceptions and what their experience was.

I was also wondering if anyone from Excelsior frequents these forums that could help since it says right in the course catalog they accept it.
