    My recommendation of WGU (or other competency based) programs are a better fit than just a regular BSBA CIS /BA CS program.
    A few other programs that are IT/Software Development based as well from several providers other than WGU ... You should check them out!

    University of Wisconsin - https://flex.wisconsin.edu/degrees-p...ce-technology/
    UW Flexible Tuition - https://flex.wisconsin.edu/degrees-p...ology/#tuition

    Patten MBA IT - Online Information Technology MBA College Degree | Master of Business Administration | Patten University
    Patten tuition - Online College Tuition Cost | Price of Online Degrees | Patten University

    Note: I placed Patten in there as it would be a cheap/quick RA Masters degree when/if you wanted to do one after your Bachelors.
    Several people finished the Masters program in 4 months and a grand total of $2 grand. You can't beat that with a rocket or a stick!

    Finishing off Bachelors - Looking into Business, IT Certifications & Masters programs
    Next Goals: WGU BSIT Security or BSCIA, Patten MBA , Hodges MIS or WGU MSCIA

    Read the Basic Approach - Online Education Guide (within my signature hyperlinks)
    (Beginners Guide to Getting Cheap/Fast College Credit on the degreeforum wiki)

    Quick Guide/Spreadsheet: TESU Bachelors Degree in 1200 hours (120 days or 4 months)
    ---This assumes you start the TESU Capstone course on the second month---
    The spreadsheets were created by dfrecore and I customized it to reflect my recommendations

    BALS: BALS

    BSBA : BSBA

    1st month: Free Credits & ALEKS courses, Start SL/Study.com
    2nd month: Straighterline & Study.com, Start your capstone
    3rd month: Straighterline & Study.com, Continue with capstone
    4th month: Finish Capstone and remainder of degree requirements

    1: For the BALS, you can take Shmoop courses for the AOS/Free Electives
    2: For the BSBA , you take more required courses from SL/Study.com for AOS
    3: All the courses in the BALS/BSBA are transferable to TESU

    This is very much doable for someone who has time on their hands, example 10 hours/day.
    The courses chosen for the degree spreadsheet are cheap/easy/fast and the style of learning.

    Straighterline courses use ProctorU for the final exams, scores are displayed in real time.
    I use Straighterline as they are "cheap/easy/fast" credits and you get to learn a little.

    Study.com uses RPNow and you will need to wait 3-5 days for the final score to display.
    I chose Study.com courses as they are "high school easy", and also learn a little as well.

    You pay $199/month for 2 exams, if you fail, you can take the exam again. All other subsequent exams are $70 each.
    People don't intend on failing, and it's not that hard, you just need a 55% on the final. Make sure to ACE the quizzes.

    Most courses are 100 points for quiz (33.3%) and 200 points for final (66.6%), so, just try to get 100% on those quizzes.
    A few have assignments/discussions, 33.3% of grade, quiz 33.3%, and the final 33.3%. These are "SL easy" in my view.

    Study.com also drops the price down by removal/waiving of the Cornerstone requirement.

    Award of Degrees
    *IF* someone plays their cards right, they can get TWO degrees from TESU just by having those extra 24 credits...
    transferring in from another College/Uni is going to complicate things.
    The BALS and the BSBA have similar general education requirements (~60 credits), the BALS has 27 Free Elective credits,
    the BSBA has 24 credits business core and 6 free elective credits.

    Technically, those 90 credits can be the same thing. There's only roughly a ~30 credit difference between the two degrees.
    The only main difference would be the Area of Study (AOS), those would be the 24-30 new credits someone would have to take it in...
    I'll give two examples, someone who wants a BSBA CIS and a BALS Computer Science .

    Basically, there's a limit of 90 credits from one source that transfers to TESU and a total of up to 117 (not the capstone).
    And that is where I would recommend you take your BSBA General Management because of the 3 reasons I chose them over COSC and Excelsior
    1) They got upgraded to University 2) Received programmatic accreditation - ACBSP 3) Courses are easier to find at the UL and for cheaper.
    If you read my Beginners Guide sticky, I have the BALS/BSBA templates in a spreadsheet view and mainly using Shmoop/Straighterline/Study.com

    You apply and pay $75 for the application fee. You have 6-12 months to enroll in a course or TECEP (do it before 6 months) at $117/TECEP.
    This allows you one year for enrollment purposes, if you need to extend that, take another TECEP for $117 next year.
    It will lock you into the catalog year that you apply (even if you FAIL the exam). Don't take any courses but the capstone at TESU.
    In regards to the Study.com, you can do the required courses - for example of a BALS/BSBA , check the Beginners Guide, I recently updated it this month...
    When you pay, it'll be for two fees, one for the capstone you take, the other for grad/residency waiver fee when you apply for graduation.

    Per Credit Tuition - Capstone Tuition is paid when you take the capstone, you pay the graduation fee/residency waiver fee when you graduate.
    Take TECEPS for enrollment purposes. For Human Resource Management , you should take it at Study.com as the CC level courses all will come in as a lower level course (unless it came from a 4 year college at UL). While taking the course, I recommend also taking the Intro to Statistics from Study.com OR the Straighterline Business Statistics, unless she really wants to take it at the CC.

    I did a comparison for myself: Several of the Competency Based Degree providers at the Masters Level.
    The main three that I chose were Hodges /Patten/WGU just because of Cost and the programs they offer.
    I broke it down to the provider and degrees are as follows: Patten MBA , Hodges MIS, WGU MSCIA
    Ultimately, If I had time, I would do all three of them, haha... if not, I would choose WGU because of one factor.

    Networking with alumni, I mean there are well over 50 thousand graduates from WGU already.
    Patten and Hodges combined are probably less than HALF of that (each at 11,000+).
    Another reason I wanted to do all three is because, the costs involved would be cheaper than 1 degree at a "major" university.
    Other options came into mind like Amberton, Fort Hayes, and the list goes on, but these are not competency based.

    For Undergrad, I actually did the same thing. Even though Excelsior has well over 150,000 graduates vs TESU at 50,000+ and COSC at 11,000+...
    I had chosen TESU because of 3 reasons, it's a University, its BSBA was going for programmatic/secondary accreditation, courses transfer easier.
    For competency based programs, there's a list on my beginners guide page, I would highly recommend Hodges /WGU for IT programs.
    For other IT programs, there's Brandman , Patten, NAU, etc

    If you can find any other college/university that is either NA or RA with this type of tuition rate, you'll be laughing... it's hard to beat.
    Practically that means in 4 months (1 term), it would only cost $1192 for an undergraduate term of unlimited courses.
    For graduate study, it's 1900 flat for a 4 month term... some people can finish a Masters - MBA , and that's the only fee!
    As I mentioned in a few of my posts, that's the cheapest I have ever found (unless you go non-accredited OR offshore).

    No test out at Patten, there are hardly any masters that allow it be test-out-able... unless you look outside the US.
    There's the well respected Heriot-Watt Masters for $15 grand, 10 tests, 10 days and you're done - it's a good program.

    The reason I looked at the Hodges /Patten/WGU options is because they are competency based and because they were cheap/easy/fast... without many prerequisites or entry requirements. What appealed to me is the majority of their programs were available online/self paced and can be completed without much additional materials/resources. I can do it as fast as possible with the current knowledge I have in the respective degree fields.

    I would rank the three in this order for business programs - Hodges MPA (IACBE program accreditation, may take 1 or 2 terms, specialize in non-profit and/or government agencies), WGU MBA /MSML (can finish in 1 term if student is speedy), Patten MBA (even though this is cheapest, it is the third option in my list). Hodges has the MIS/MS Visual Communications which I also like... *sigh*. Hard choices to go for... but these are my top 3.

    They were, if memory serves me right, University Now actually purchased both Patten and New Charter, but because they wanted to make some quick cash, they sold New Charter to focus on Patten... The fee structure is the same, as the pricing is identical ($1497/3 months vs $1997/4 months), that's roughly the same $499/month or around there...

    My Grad School Thoughts - Masters/PHD

    I'm going to apply to them later, I am taking a 3 month Leave of Absence from work to travel. *I am not in a rush to get a Masters (I think it's the highest education level I will go for now, not aiming for a Doctorate/PHD anytime soon). *If I want to apply, I may want to apply to 3 Masters program at the end of the year or March 2018 (whenever I feel like it, after I come back from my travels). *

    These are the Top 3 choices for me and will suit anyone with a Bachelors (any major). *Hodges MIS (no entrance requirements but a Bachelors) OR Hodges MPA (IACBE secondary/programmatic accredited), WGU (MBA - 6 months for $3500) OR Patten MBA (4 months at $1900 or 8 months for $3800). *Patten maybe the cheapest if one can finish in 4 months, but for those who are "slower", it's cheap at 8 months.

    Patten Tuition: anyone got a corp discount code for $1900/4 months? Tuition Cost
    Patten Online Degrees List:*Online College Degrees
    The Patten MBA has 7 concentrations, I am thinking of going for the Finance option

    Unhappy Saylor Multiple Accounts for Proctored "Final"

    Please note there are some posts here that suggest using multiple Saylor accounts to prepare for the final proctor exam by taking the non-proctored exam as practice. One post states "

    "The practice final questions are not going to be identical to the proctored final.
    Having a second account isn't cheating and it's giving you an extra practice set to "gauge" where you're at.Hope this helps, more practice testing is where it's all at to pass any proctored exam"

    "Having a second account isn't cheating" this statement does not match the rules in the student handbook.

    https://www.saylor.org/site/wp-conte...t-Handbook.pdf

    Based upon this advice, and my failure to read the Saylor.org student handbook, I found out that this is NOT ALLOWED

    Realizing that I had unwittingly violated Saylor's rules I immediately reported the incident to Saylor, and asked that my other Saylor's practice accounts be closed. They are looking into my report.

    SUGGESTION: Before taking advice concerning the use of Saylor's for your studies, read the student handbook. Use of multiple accounts to bypass the 14 day study period is a violation of the rules - even if you are simply using it as a practice exam for the proctored exam.

    Bernie is right - good call, as per their website, they were making updates while I was writing this thread...
    Technically, this should only apply if you're using the second account to bypass the proctored final restriction of retaking it 7 days later.
    There's no restriction for using a second account for practice tests or for quizzes and such.... go figure...
    Blog Link: https://www.saylor.org/2016/05/blog-...d-and-revised/
    Newer 2016-05, PDF Link: https://www.saylor.org/site/wp-conte...k-May-2016.pdf

    In general, you should maintain only one account (i.e. one email address) with Saylor Academy.
    Creating multiple accounts to bypass waiting periods or other restrictions is not allowed (see
    “Academic Code of Conduct” below).

    Excerpt: A note about exam re*takes and multiple account creation:

    You will be allowed to take a Saylor Academy course final exam as many times as needed in order for you to pass it.
    However, all final exams do have a mandatory waiting period of two weeks between attempts.
    This waiting period is meant to encourage you to take some time to study after an unsuccessful
    attempt and also serves to protect the integrity of the exam as well as the value of course
    certificates. While we understand that it may be tempting to create a separate user account in
    order to bypass these exam waiting periods, doing so does constitute a violation of our
    Academic Code of Conduct and therefore may result in account suspension/deletion and denial
    or revocation of certificates and credentials.

    I received a really nice email from Sean of Saylor thanking me for my candor and reporting my use of multiple accounts to study for the proctored exam after I passed the non proctored exam.

    It was very stressful for me, because theoretically I could loose all my credits at Saylor for reporting it. Five month of studies and 9 credit hours down the drain.

    In the end I decided that telling the truth and reporting the incident was the right thing to do.

    It was a good life lesson for me, a blog such as this is no substitute for the policies of any institution.

    Every school I have been to has a code of conduct and written rules, I should have known better.
