    Smile Newbie planning on Charter Oak for Business and political science

    I Anna mama for who originally earn 33 credits at her local community college and then went on to earn my associates and paralegals studies from a nationally accredited school that is in partnership with charter Oak . My current plan is to attend charter Oak and earn either my bachelors in business or my bachelors in political science . I live in Ohio who has a fellowship program to learn the in and outs of politics that I am very interested in. I don't just want to go randomly take clep test because I'm not sure which ones will apply, so does anyone know what my best plan of action would be at this point. I have already applied at Excelsior College only to be told that they will not give me a plan on what I should be doing so I'm not thrilled with Excelsior and don't plan on attending there. Also they will not accept my credits from national paralegal college. Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated I'm not sure if charter Oak will except all of my credits but if they do that I should have like 64 to transfer in towards my bachelors

    Unless I missed it, COSC doesn't have a political science bachelors program. Beyond that I'd point out that Bachelors programs in business are probably the most common DL program in the country and so, considering that you don't want to test out of your courses I'm not sure why you've chosen COSC

    Yes, they offer a concentration in political science.

    She explained that COSC has an agreement with the nationally accredited school where she earned previous credits, so she would be sure not to lose them.

    OK then. If the decision has been made then what's the issue? Submit your transcripts, see what they accept, and go from there.

    If your NA college has an articulation agreement with COSC then your credits should be accepted in accordance with that agreement. We don't know what that agreement is or if it even applies to you. The only way to find that out is to ask the folks at your NA school or COSC or, preferably, both.

    That aside, while many treat this as a race to 120 credits, that number is largely meaningless if you don't meet the degree requirements. So look beyond "how many credits do I get?" and look toward the degree roadmaps and ensuring that the credits that DO transfer, as well as future courses you might take, meet the requirements for the degree.

    Coming up with a plan.

    Ok, I have been corresponding with an admissions representative at Charter oak .
    First: I really need to decide if I want to get my bachelors in Business ( which is what I originally went to school for in 2006)
    Or get my bachelors in political science ( which I've heard is a useless degree and that's scary)

    Your thoughts?

    Second,

    The admissions representative said almost all of my classes at NPC have been assessed by NCSSR? And that means they will accept them giving me 3 credits transferred for each class. Which means I should have close to 21 credits to transfer over. I will graduate with my associates in paralegal studies in July.

    My goal here is to try and get a solid plan or oath with where I'm going and maybe even take a clep or two before I graduate in July.

    Thoughts?

    Only 21 out of 60+ for your associates? That's a shame. Did they say why only 21? If you're willing to go with business, that opens up possibilities. You should try TESU. Just apply and send your transcripts, then you can see how/if your credits transfer.

    Now I understand. The COTC courses should be no issue since they are RA.

    Yes the issue I'm having with excelsior and possibly TESC is the national accreditation with NPC. I'm a mom of four (two bio) ( two adopted nieces) and super busy so hoping to work on getting a bachelors completely online and using cleps

    My husband works for Boeing and we may leave Ohio before I get my bachelors and try to earn a paid 13 month fellowship with the LSC fellowship here and it is an excellent opportunity and would open a lot of doors into that career field but A lot can happen and we may move before o can even do that fellowship program so I feel like the business degree is prob more universal but I love the thought of getting my political science degree and going on to try and make a difference somewhere preferably with children rights or children advocacy ( since I adopted my nieces who were abused) I have a desire to do work related to children but also other areas of legislation.

    Excelsior accepts NA credits on a case-by-case basis.

    I believe COSC has a concentration in paralegal studies.
    Texas State University - PhD CJ (ABD)
    Angelo State University - Master of Security Studies and Grad Cert Terrorism
    Thomas Edison State College/University - BA Soc Sci, AAS in Environmental Safety, ASNSM in Biology, & BSBA in CIS
