Help with TESU BACS - NolaRice - 02-12-2019

I'm trying to complete the TESU BACS degree and just got my evaluation back under the newer catalog.

I'm already done with the General Education part, save for the cornerstone (can I still get a waiver for it?).

In the AOS, I'm missing:

Intro to Programming - can take through OD
Data Structures - Not sure where?
Discrete Math - Not sure where?
Operating Systems - study.com
Comp. Architecture - study.com

I'm confused about the AOS electives. This is what I already have:
CIS-320 Info Systems Analysis & Design
CIS-301 Management Information Systems
COS-208 Java Programming Level 1
CIS-201 Management Information Systems

Do I need two or three UL courses to complete the degree? I saw study.com has database management for UL credit, are there any other easy and quick options?

There are no waivers anymore. It literally takes an hour (or less!) to complete. Do it ASAP because they are phasing it out with a 3 credit 12-week course and if you don't finish it soon you will have to do the new one.

Thanks for that, I will enroll today.

Discrete math is available at study.com
There's an upper level cyber security DSST

Data Structures is not currently available through alternative credits.

Gotcha. I am looking for a non-semester based (can be taken anytime) online course. So far I found UNI, Athabasca and TESU itself, though I do not have experience in C++, only java and python, so that might be an issue. Oakton CC appears to be semester based. Does anyone know of any other option?

How could that be possible if i try to enroll a couple of days ago, and they told me that i have to do the sos-110 course for 3 credits.

It depends on when they applied. If they did it last year, they would still be able to take TES-100.

Not Catalog year but the date of your actual application was last year?  I'm in the same boat that gams007 is in.
