    Hi:

    Has anyone had FEMA courses accepted by COSC? Just wondering.


    Thanks,

    I do not believe COSC will accept them directly. FEMA courses are not worth college credit when documented only on a Emergency Management Institute transcript and they have not been given a positive evaluation for college credit by the American Council on Education.

    However, if you take your Emergency Management Institute transcript to a college that has evaluated these courses and decided to offer college credit for them, you can get them on a transcript that can then be transferred to COSC.

    I suggest you get a large number of FEMA courses done, credit bank them at Thomas Edison State College and then try and transfer them to COSC.

    Thanks for the info!

    Thanks for the great info.! This may sound dumb, but I think I have finally figured out the purpose of credit banking, I guess a light bulb finally went off, or on?

    Thanks once again,

    Abner :)
