    Red face Testing out with CLEP PLUS Tuition Reimbursement through work

    I am in a very nice position where I am able to be reimbursed 100% for business related classes (books not included) at my local colleges. I am finally able to afford to pay upfront for a class or 2 to make this a reality!
    I want to speed up my learning though. I am 5 years into my business career and am starting to be stunted in career growth by my lack of degree. I also want to move out of state soon, so I need to get moving NOW. I am smart and highly motivated, so I think think testing out is the way to go. I will have to pay out of pocket for all of the CLEP tests.

    I have done research in testing out of degrees using TESC. I am thinking that maybe the classes that are not covered for a business degree at TESC through CLEP can be covered through one of the classes at this school which will be paid for by my place of work.

    Can anyone educated on the topic take a look and see how I am doing? See if I am on the right track? I plan on taking my literature CLEP very soon to get the ball rolling.

    Business Classes Offered through local school
    Business Administration A.S. Degree

    I would go to the SPJC website and look for which CLEPs they take. That would be the first step.

    I went to SPJC in 1999-2000 and it is a great school. I have considered taking a certificate program there but they do not have any online programs I am interested in.

    Not if 'dog' is working on a TESC degree. 'Dog' needs to match up with the TESC testing plan instead.

    I would do the humanities CLEP for 6 credits and you can eliminate one of the humanities classes you have listed like the Man. Bus. Comm.
