    I recently completed and passed the saylor.org introduction to western political thought course. I transferred it in to my college, and they gave me 3 elective credits. Best of all, the course was Scott-free! I just have to test out of 1 more class, and I am done with my bachelor's degree. Yessss!!!!!!!!!

    That's great! Which college if you don't mind saying? I know Saylor and TESC are working together, if someone else accepting Saylor, I'd love to know!

    Saylor does offer 3 ACE-approved courses, but I'm wondering where you took the proctored exam for free.

    Sorry, I meant NCCRS. Is the OP attending one of the Big 3?

    Saylor.org is not recommended by ACE, but by the NCCRS (national college credit recommendation service). There are plenty of colleges that accept their credits. Just take a look on their website. You can take a proctored exam with ProctorU for $25, or find a suitable proctor, and save your money. I used a local librarian for my proctor, which was free. I personally think that the saylor course was tougher than a CLEP exam any day. My last course to complete my bachelor's degree will be the DSST business law 2 exam. If I bomb on it, I will either go ahead and take an upper-level business class at my college, or I will try the organizational behavior Excelsior exam. This should be interesting, as I have never attempted a DSST or Excelsior exam. I personally just want to pass the DSST exam and be done with this bachelor's degree jazz. Whew!!!

    Saylor.org gives a choice of 2 final exams. One is the NCCRS proctored exam that is specifically recommended for college credit, and the other is the regular un-proctored final exam. There are some schools that will actually give credit for the un-proctored regular final exam if you get a 70 or over. Just download the transcript, and the certificate that says you completed and passed the course, and give it a try. I know this may be a rarity, but trust me, it does exist. I need Lasagna!!! Gotta go!
