Hi Everyone, I've become very frustrated with colleges here in California! I'm 46 and am trying to get a Liberal Arts degree as quickly as I can to try and support my father's rising medical expenses so time has become urgent for me. I returned to school in 2015 and have been working full time and trying to take classes as much as I can. I thought I was on the right path with 90 units completed only to have my local CSU tell me that I have to complete their pathway to not have to take the CSET when I'm done with all my college work. So come to find out I still have to do 30 more Gen Ed units plus 50 Upper level work and the 36 credential units. So I'm looking at another 116 units which would take me at least 4-5 years ugghhh. I stumbled upon information about Clep and DSST's etc. If any of the so called big 3 colleges would be an option to help me speed things up, that would be awesome. If I could test out of as much as possible that would be amazing. I'm just not sure where to start, should I call one of the big 3?? Is one better than another for Liberal Arts?? How can I find out how many of my 90 units will count towards my finishing degree and what I still need to take etc??? I see that some of you on here make a list of what classes to take for their majors..how does one go about doing that??? AANNNYYY Help whatsoever is much appreciated!!! In the meantime I will try to dig through this forum for info...Thank You In Advance!!!
