I'm new here and have a dilemna relating to getting my BA. First some background: I went to an accredited public university in the early 90's for 4 years. My major was Art, minor Criminal Justice so nothing special. I ended up receiving 121 credits out of a required 124 sem credits. The only class needed was college level math and suffice it to say, math has never been my strong suit so I tried to CLEP out of it and failed. My intention was to just take a semester off and go back and get my degree but it hasn't happened. And it really wasn't a big issue but I'm now interested in teaching english overseas & a BA is one of the minimum requirements so I'm exploring my options. So the major issue now is: I owe the school money (that i don't have) and of course, they won't release my transcripts to any other school so I'm thinking I have 2 options: 1. To find a way to work out a payment plan & get the math credit accepted by them so I can then get my BA from them since all of my credits are with them anyway. Seems the easiest option. OR 2. Work out a payment plan (I know there is no way around it, I'm going to have to pay) & get my transcripts and try transferring my credits with them to another university to finish my BA. My question is, does anyone have any suggestions for me? I know I'm not the only one in this predicament since I've read that half of all college students do not end up matriculating. I just need to get this done with. Better late than never. And again, the only reason I'm really interested at this point is because I really want to teach & travel overseas and a BA, any BA, will do. Although I have already done the work. Yes, it's crazy that I went for 4 years only to not finish, but at the time, it seemed like a pause, not an end. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
