    Help creating a degree roadmap

    I would like a little help if anybody is willing and able :) I have been studying at Western Governors University for a while now, and I'm really just burnt out with it. It's a great school, but as I said, I'm just burnt out. I want to finish a degree as quickly as possible (don't care what major), and I would like to try to do it by testing out. Please help me decide which school and major I should apply to and what tests I would need to take to finish.


    I have completed the following courses at Western Governors University and attached their credit values:
    Principles of Management (4)
    Communications Foundations (2)
    Language and Communication: Essay (2)
    Fundamentals of Business Law and Ethics (6)
    Integrated Natural Science (4)
    Ethical Situations in Business (3)
    Quantitative Literacy: College Algebra, Measurement, and Geometry (3)
    Quantitative Literacy: Statistics, Probability, and Problem Solving (3)
    Fundamentals of Organizational Behavior and Leadership (4)
    Reasoning and Problem Solving (3)
    Integrated Natural Science Applications (4)
    Fundamentals of Economics , Global Business and Quantitative Analysis (4)
    Literature, Arts and the Humanities: Analysis and Interpretation (2)
    Fundamentals of Marketing and Business Communication (6)
    Fundamentals of Finance, Accounting and Information Technology (6)
    Leadership Concepts and Applications (4)
    Quality, Operations and Decision Science Concepts (8)
    Strategy, Change and Organizational Behavior Concepts (7)


    I've completed these courses at Georgia Military College:
    American Government (5 quarter hours)
    Introductory Psychology (5 quarter hours)
    Western Civilization (5 quarter hours)

    I've completed these courses at Wiregrass Technical College (formerly Valdosta Technical College)
    Business Math (3)
    Intro to Marketing (3)
    Fundamentals of Selling (3)

    And finally, I've completed the following FEMA EMI courses
    IS-208a State Disaster Management
    IS-802 Emergency Support Function (ESF) #2 Communications
    IS-702a NIMS Public Information Systems
    IS-701 NIMS Multiagency Coordination System (MACS)
    IS-242a Effective Communication
    IS-703 NIMS Resource Management
    IS-704 NIMS Communications and Information Management
    IS-706 NIMS Intrastate Mutual Aid an Introduction
    IS-01 Emergency Program Manager
    IS-240a Leadership and Influence
    IS-139 Exercise Design


    Can anybody provide me with some direction?

    I'm not sure if they still do it, but Thomas Edison State College used to do a credit assessment for a small fee, where you have your transcripts sent to them, and they plug them into a degree plan, which is then sent to you with what credits you need to complete a degree program. They will take an entire degree program (120 credits) in transfer/testing credits, and they accept any RA credits.

    A quick look at your credit distribution shows a lot of courses that are often general education , so you might have a choice of which major(s) you'd like to go for.

    I applied to TESC and was accepted, but I never saw anything about a credit assessment. I'll have to try and find some info on it. Thanks!
