If you’re not familiar with ACE Transcript, check out this post I made back at the beginning. Yesterday, I sent TESU my ACE Transcript again, because I want to give them an extra opportunity to evaluate my credits before October. The first transcript was $20, but this one and any future ones are only $15. It might be overkill, but I want to make sure I have everything transferred so I can graduate in December.

I’m trying to carefully fill in the last handful of courses to finish my degree. I still need a few general education electives. Over the last couple days, I took all the quizzes for History 102 and Geology 101. My wife enjoyed teasing me about taking “rocks for jocks.”

It’s been a little while since I tallied up my degree progress. This afternoon, I just passed my Intro to Computing final with an 82%.
I started my degree on January 1, 2017. I’m 247 days in, and I’ve completed 89 credits.
Here’s where I’m at so far in terms of credits and dollars:

In my post about Nutrition 101, I mentioned that Study.com counts your third quiz attempt as final. Therefore, I only ended up with 83% on the quizzes. I was debating between studying Nutrition (to get higher than a 63.5% on the final) or just looking for another Understanding the Physical and Natural World course. I looked at the list and noticed Study.com has an Intro to Computing course, Business 109. That will satisfy 1 of the 2 courses that I need.

This morning, I signed up for the Straighterline business statistics final at ProctorU at 8:05am and took the first time slot available at 8:25am. The charge for this is a $8.75 “Take it Now” fee. I didn’t have to pay the fee because of ProctorU’s $25 “Platinum” Fast Track option that I signed up for back in January. This option is no longer available, but this $25 has saved me a $5.00-$8.75 fee every time I’ve scheduled an exam. I will have to go back in a future post and total up those savings.

On Sunday, I was searching for a fast course I could knock out in one day, and I came across Study.com’s History 108: History of the Vietnam War. It transfers into TESU as HIS-351: A History of Vietnam War. This course turned out to be the fastest credits I’ve gotten yet.
I started the 32 quizzes at 1:08pm and finished at 1:47pm with 100%. I took a short break and took the exam from 2:08pm to 2:53pm. That’s a little under an hour and fifteen minutes to get three upper level general education elective credits. No papers or graded assignments.

I just took my final exam for Organizational Behavior from Study.com in our guest bedroom on a Saturday on my laptop. I got 3 credits totally from home in just a few hours on my laptop in my free time (which I don’t have very much of). It cost about $100 for 3 credits. I’m going to complete my degree with TESU online, without ever having to step foot into a college or testing center.

I had one more exam to take with this month’s Study.com membership, so I started Business 107: Organizational Behavior. I was specifically looking for another business course that was 1/3 quizzes and 2/3 final with no projects or papers. I had a little over 10% of the course already completed from carryover from other courses. This is the first course I’ve taken at Study.com that had a placement test. I took the 30 question placement test and found myself at 39% complete. Sweet!
I finished the rest of the quizzes in two quick sessions and have 99% complete on the quizzes, so I need a 56% on the final to pass the course. I plan to take the final over the weekend.

It’s been about a month since I submitted my ACE transcript for academic evaluation at TESU. I’ve been logging in every day for the last few days to see what the result would be. Yesterday I saw that they had evaluated all the credits. They counted all 59 credits that I transferred (for a total of 62 with the Strategic Management TECEP).
Inside the student portal, you choose your program/major and the software shows you how your credits will count and what you still have left. It’s broken out into sections. For me, the BSBA in general management includes general education, professional business requirements, area of study, and electives.
