    I was able to do it using CLEP / DSST / ECE exams plus one or two classes. Took me about 3 months.

    In order to really give accurate advice I also need to know the course numbers on your completed courses, for a Bachelors you need 30 credits at the upper level (300-400 level).

    Provide that and I can at least give you an idea on completion at Charter Oak State College Generally speaking you will need these general ed classes General Education Requirements - Charter Oak State College Catalog and something like this for your major, this is criminal justice, Criminal Justice - Charter Oak State College With those 60 or so credits the rest could be from virtually any course/exam, for now even free FEMA courses would work for electives.

    I completed a BS from Charter Oak State College. I looked at the military passing rates and took any test with above a 50% passing rate that I knew something about. I failed one test (I think it was Money and Banking or something like that)

    I'm not an EC expert, but I fear you need 30 credits at the UL 300-400 level. I don't know that any of the big 3 will transfer your courses in at an advanced level, if.....if COSC allowed some they would be a good bet as you could use free FEMA and fill in gen eds and be done.

    I'll try to take a better look at that tomorrow if you like....but I can't really tell you how they will treat all that LL criminal justice credit.
