Will COSC accepts my foreign credits as Non-Ace credits? - cecilgambe7 - 07-21-2020

As most of you know, recently COSC changes the rules, and the 90-ACE/30 Non ACE credits is the most polemic change.

Now I'm looking more to the side of EC, but I don't rule out COSC entirely, specially because of lower prices.

The problem is to collect the 30 non-ACE credits.

My queston is, will they take my 19 foreign credits as non-ACE credits??

Because if so I can get the others with ASU.

You'll want to ask admissions, but when you do make sure they ask the Registrar to confirm what they're telling you is accurate.

And get it in writing! Even if it's an email. You have an electronic paper trail. this way.

Thank you for both replies.

I write a mail to them and i am waiting for the reply now...

The COSC internet information don't specifies if those 30 credits are just non-ACE credits or any U.S. Credits...

It specifies "regionally accredited", which is more restrictive either than "non-ACE" or "any U.S. credits". 

The only unknown here is whether credit from a foreign institution that's evaluated as being the equivalent to regionally accredited counts. I look forward to finding out what they tell you!

Actually you are right.

Well, if my foreign credits are not accepted to fil the 30 Non-ACE RA credits, i think the difference in price of getting those 30 credits in RA institutions will exceed the price difference between EC and COSC... so i will discard COSC...

Bear in mind that TECEP and UExcel exams are not expensive and (I believe) can be done at home, and they do count towards the regionally accredited requirement because they're run by regionally accredited institutions.

UExcel exams have to be taken at a Pearson testing facility. I looked at them when I was debating Excelsior. Last time I looked, all Pearson testing sites are closed due to COVID. There was something about they would not be offered online either which is silly. It's 2020.

This is a valid option to keep considering COSC.

If i only take the UEXCE exam i finally pay about the same that a study.com course (Study.com 1 course for 100$; UEXCE exam 1 course for 110$)

Did i need to pay extra for Pearson services or it is including in the UEXCE fee??


RE: Will COSC accepts my foreign credits as Non-Ace credits? - ss20ts - 07-22-2020

There's a fee for Pearson as well. You also have to go to their testing centers. If you're not in the US, I'm not sure if that's possible.
