    I got 3 credits from saylor.org course for free!

    I recently completed and passed the saylor.org introduction to western political thought course. I transferred it in to my college, and they gave me 3 elective credits. Best of all, the course was Scott-free! I just have to test out of 1 more class, and I am done with my bachelor's degree. Yessss!!!!!!!!!

    That's great! Which college if you don't mind saying? I know Saylor and TESC are working together, if someone else accepting Saylor, I'd love to know!

    Saylor does offer 3 ACE-approved courses, but I'm wondering where you took the proctored exam for free.

    I don't think it's ACE, I think it's NCCRS. (making it even more amazing)
    But I found this- says they have 7 schools accepting their credit. http://moocnewsandreviews.com/credit...ited-colleges/

    Sorry, I meant NCCRS. Is the OP attending one of the Big 3 ?

    Saylor.org is not recommended by ACE, but by the NCCRS (national college credit recommendation service). There are plenty of colleges that accept their credits. Just take a look on their website. You can take a proctored exam with ProctorU for $25, or find a suitable proctor, and save your money. I used a local librarian for my proctor, which was free. I personally think that the saylor course was tougher than a CLEP exam any day. My last course to complete my bachelor's degree will be the DSST business law 2 exam. If I bomb on it, I will either go ahead and take an upper-level business class at my college, or I will try the organizational behavior Excelsior exam. This should be interesting, as I have never attempted a DSST or Excelsior exam. I personally just want to pass the DSST exam and be done with this bachelor's degree jazz. Whew!!!

    Saylor.org gives a choice of 2 final exams. One is the NCCRS proctored exam that is specifically recommended for college credit, and the other is the regular un-proctored final exam. There are some schools that will actually give credit for the un-proctored regular final exam if you get a 70 or over. Just download the transcript, and the certificate that says you completed and passed the course, and give it a try. I know this may be a rarity, but trust me, it does exist. I need Lasagna!!! Gotta go!
