I just knocked out the ethics course by the free insurance ethics class by the institute that I found on here.  Thanks for those that posted it.

all from SDC

"What you need : Name of class at SDC"

Civics : Political Science 102 American Government
Ethics : Business 108 Business Ethics (this will be better for you degree if you intend to go for an MBA later. Schools seem to like business
ethics for BSBA degrees.)
Accounting 102 : Accounting 102 Intro to managerial accounting
Finance : Finance 101 Principles of Finance
Principles of Management : Business 101 Principles of Management
Marketing : Business 102 Principles of Marketing
Business / Society : Business 308 Globalization and International Management

CIS Electives:
You need 12 UL credits and 6 LL credits. Only 3 of these credits CAN be additional programming languages.
Python Programming comes into TESU as COS 205 (3cr. LL) (3 additional programming credits)
Database Management comes into TESU as CIS 311 (3cr. UL)
You still need 3cr. LL and 9 cr. UL
For the UL classes:
Business 309 Digital Marketing and Advertising works (I took and recommend this course)
Business 303 Management Information Systems
Computer Science 302 Systems Analysis and design
My understanding is that computer architecture also works.... I would not recommend this as an option. I took this course for my Computer
science degree, and it was one of the hardest things I've had to do academically.
For the last LL class:
Computer Science 306 Software Engineering should work (Though it's listed as UL by ACE, it comes into TESU as CIS 251)
I am sure there are other options for LL credit at SDC, but I am not positive so I don't want to give bad information. In theory, if you could get confirmation from an academic advisor that you could use two separate lower level programming classes for the AOS, Java, C++, C, maybe R would all be options you could take.

I wish you the best of luck. If you have any questions feel free to ask. I'm on here 2-3 times a day at this point lol.

Any suggestions on non natural world general electives that are pretty easy to knock out quickly? I have 10 hours.


RE: Study.com class recommendations to complete BSBA in CIS @ TESU - Zachcleigh - 01-12-2020

If you'd like to gain more knowledge in the field of computer science/CIS, there are a lot of computer options (if you intend to go into this field as a career, it never hurts to have more representation of that type of knowledge on your transcript). The issue with these is that they are all physical and natural world.... I've looked at TESU's website and can't find anything that states that there is an issue with have more than 10 gen ed credits worth of this area.
Phys and Nat:
Computer Science 201 Data Structures and Algorithms
Computer Science 105 or 305 Operating Systems (these overlap so you can't use both. I'd recommend the 305 option.. leaves more room for poor performance on the final)
Any programming Language from SDC should work

Others Courses that would work (not Phys/Nat):
Math 101 College Algebra
Math 102 College Mathematics
Math 105 Calculus Algebra
Math 108 Discrete Mathematics
Political Science 103 Comparative Politics
Humanities 101 Intro to the humanities
ART 103 History of Western Art 1
ART 104 History of Western Art 2
Computer Science 102 Fundamentals of Information Technology

I think that's a good start. Might be enough options.
Since you chose CIS, I'm assuming you're pretty good at math. Those various math courses would probably be a breeze for you. Fundamentals of information technology is not classified by TESU as Phys/Nat. Gives an opportunity for you to get another computer related course onto your degree. I've heard comparative politics isn't too bad.

Best,

Thank you. I had completed in Associates in Computer Studies at TESU prior to knowing about CLEP, study.com, etc and spent a lot of time actually taking each of the courses to complete.

I'm currently in line for a promotion and my boss demanded I complete my degree. Trying to finish as fast as I can. At this point, just doing CIS because that's where most of my other classes fall and it's the path of least resistance.

The type of degree isnt as meaningful in mybspecific situation to just have a 4-year. So I'm not tied to any one degree. I've also thought about switching to BSBA General Management as I thought it may provide a quicker path due to study.com and just needing business electives.

I'm a 21 year employee at the same company and I dont plan on leaving until retirement, so just needing to check a box to move forward.


RE: Study.com class recommendations to complete BSBA in CIS @ TESU - Zachcleigh - 01-12-2020

I think CIS gives you a better back up in a worst case scenario than general management will give you. BSBA general management is just a BSBA. The CIS focus actually brings an additional skill to the table. The courses you'd take should be easily within your grasp, so I'd say stick with it.
In that case, I still stand by the math courses probably being the quickest and easiest options.

This is what it tells me in the attachment.  What type of elective would not be considered natural world?


RE: Study.com class recommendations to complete BSBA in CIS @ TESU - Zachcleigh - 01-13-2020

Ohhhhhhh lol. Yea I see.

So if you scroll up on your eval to the phys/May world part. It’ll say you need 4 credits, but you earned 6 credits in that section. The extra 2 carry over to your gen ed section.
The picture you sent, you can see it says there are 20 credits required. But then it says take 18 because you were 2 hours over in the phys May category.
Phys/Nat electives will satisfy that elective section no problem.

BUS 120: International Business is an easier option than BUS 308: Globalization and International Management for the Business/Society requirement.
