    Hi All - I am new to the forum and I have done a lot of reading and have requested information from some of the schools that I have seen on here. I really need help to complete my degree, because my employer is making it a requirement based on my level.

    I currently have about 22 credit from AIU, but this is back in 2004. I am really interested in going to COSC to complete this degree. I saw a lot of info on the forum regarding testing out to complete your degree at COSC and I really need some information about this. I contacted the school todya and they said that someone will contact me, an Admissions Adviser. I didn't see information on the site about testing out of most of the courses.

    Can you help me to create a plan to complete my degree with this school? how long do you think that it would take me to complete a BA at COSC? Whar are the requirements? I just really need some guidance and I would really appreciate your help.

    Thank you!

    Welcome to the forum. I completed my BS from COSC and I was able to go from an AA to a BS in under 6 months. I was able to test out of over 50 credits in under two months. To complete the COSC degree you will need 6 credits in English, 6 in math, 12 in social science, etc - the same general ed requirements as any school. They can all be earned by testing out. Does that help to get started?

    This is the degree plan I used in 2007 to graduate from Excelsior with BS/Psychology, and an Area of Focus in Administrative/Management through testing out of all courses. This plan was approved - IN WRITING - by Excelsior staff before tests were taken, and there should be no exceptions to that rule for the protection of the student. NOTE: Credits granted from GRE subject test in psychology were less than what was earned, as duplication occurred. This provides a great example of why it is always wise to obtain approval before accruing credits.

  5. A caveat - hasn't been updated in years so use it as a guidebook, not a roadmap.

    I second consultco's suggestion to get EVERYTHING in writing (via e-mail is fine, just print it out) as things can change during the course of a degree plan.
