    Greetings wise ones of this board,

    My state recently sent me a notification that I can circumvent needing to have a bachelor's degree if I can complete the following by December of this year.

    3 semester hours of each of the following:
    English composition
    Principles of economics (micro or macro)
    Algebra, geometry, or higher mathematics
    Introduction to computers: Word processing/spreadsheets
    Business or real estate law

    My question is this: Can I test out for these hours? Is it possible to log hours on my transcript with one of the big three? I hear Thomas Edison University is the best to go with, but I am a complete newbie right now.

    Any help is appreciated. I'm in a bit of a crunch to get these done.

    Thank you so much.

    Welcome to DegreeInfo!!!!

    There are exams that cover the material for each of the courses you need. I'll edit this post and make a list in a moment. The real question is whether or not your state will accept testing as an alternative to credit from college courses. If so, then :banana:. You just have to check which exams they will accept for which requirement. It might be that they will accept them, but only if they are on the transcript of an accredited college, something else we can direct you on if necessary :banana:. If that's also a NO, then we'll see what we can do from there.

    From the following test providers:

    English Composition

    CLEP - College Composition
    ECE - English Composition
