TESU AS/BS Degree Plan w/test out options -ZERO TRANSFER CREDITS - GED2Degree - 03-15-2019

Hello and good day!

Long story short: I am 40-ish without any prior college credits. I am looking at going the course/test route from the ACE approved providers, such as study.com, Saylor etc. 

I have a lot of free time right now, so the main things would be to cut costs, and try to earn the credits ASAP.

I am open to the AS/BS in Business major if that's the fastest/cheapest option. 

Thanks!

One huge advantage of not having any credit, is that you're not invested in the idea of using your old credits! Smile Seriously - that's a barrier for many people, and can create a crazy plan. So, you're not locked in to anything - that's great!

I didn't think TESU required Pre-calculus for a business degree. I just double-checked their site and didn't see it listed. Am I missing something? I ask because I am literally in the middle of applying to TESU right now and about had a heart attack when I saw your comment. lol

When I looked at business degrees for my son, an issue for us was math.  If you're ok with Precal, you can choose anywhere- if you expect to have some challenges, you have to know that now.  Do you think you have it in you to earn credit in Precalculus?  If not, it's going to be Charter Oak where you can choose Business Stats, a much more manageable course through Straighterline.

Sorry!! I misspoke- but my son's brick wall was College Algebra, so instead, he took Business Stats and attends COSC.

If I was going to start from scratch, I would do WGU. It's probably going to be your cheapest option. You can first plan out a degree with them using 30cr that are harder to find or required to take through them, then find the cheapest/fastest/easiest ways to get the other 90cr.

Do those 90cr first, then apply, make sure everything transfers as planned, and then you are set to start. You can finish the rest in a single 6-mo term for like $3,500.

I was doing my BA PSY at TESU but I would rather do it at WGU, the question here is, can I use the credits that I obtained at Study.com towards a degree at WGU?
Also, other than that is cheap, is there anything else you liked about WGU that made you change your mind about TESU?
EDITED: never mind, I just saw that WGU doesn't have Psychology major...
thanks
