    Newbie Seeking Advice

    Hi there,

    My name is Cas, and I'm trying to finish my degree as quickly as possible. I'm hoping to be able to finish my remaining 60 credit hours within 3 months through CLEP/Dantes/etc. I realize how large of a challenge this is, but I'm ready to take it on.

    I've saved up money, and I'm ready to commit 7 days a week towards making this goal a reality. During this time, I won't be working. I'll only be focusing on knocking this degree out.

    It may seem strange to want to knock out a degree so quickly, but normally I have a very busy schedule and now, I've got a job offer being held for 4 months for me (In China) assuming I can knock out the degree in time.

    I'm trying to get a degree in Business (international/global) would be excellent, but in the end, any business degree will be sufficient for what I need. Time is the only constraint which basically requires me to CLEP/Dantes/etc as many (if not all) of the classes necessary to graduate. Realistically, I'll be going through one of the "Big 3 " either Thomas Edison State College, Excelsior, or Charter Oaks State College.

    Would you guys please shine some light on this subject for me? I'm totally lost, and I'm starting to feel like this opportunity might slip through my fingers if I can't knock something out quickly.

    Cas

    BSBA in General Management Degree Program #4 under "general management" will be the easiest to complete via CBE. In addition to CLEP/DSST there are also TESC TECEP Exams and the EC exams, plus straighterline for a few requirements.

    Here is the Excelsior option http://www.excelsior.edu/programs/bu...achelor-degree

    What your seeking is doable...but you better get started.

    Doesn't Excelsior have some sort of capstone requirement these days? Might that get in the way of completing by then?

    That's true, I think that TESC has a test out option for it's Management Capstone...one of the TECEPS I believe.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I just wish TESC didn't have that darn $3000 fee attached to it. :/

    I wish there were more degrees available via Excelsior/COSC due to the fee being lower initially.

    Cheers,
    Cas
