Which colleges are the 5% that don't accept TESC? Can you give me the names?
I am sure Dr. Bear will answer when he has a chance. I believe that he has conducted a survey that asked do you routinely accept non-ra accreditation A. Yes, B. No, C. Sometimes. If so it really wouldn't apply to the specific question of which MA/MS Computer Science degree program would accept your BS from ACCIS. It would seem the best attack would be for you to contact 3-4 programs you would like to apply to and ask them "would you accept a graduate of ACCIS in your program?" Best of luck.
Who said this figure exists? I analyzed the data from the survey, and such a question was not asked. There was some reluctance to accept purely DL degrees from RA schools, but none of them rejected RA DL degrees outright.
Ah, I get it. See, the questions were posed on Likert-type scales, with scores ranging from 6 to 0. John may be referring to a couple of responses on the lower end of the scale, while I'm looking at the lack of responses scoring "0" for that category.
At any rate, TESC was not singled out. The category was 100% DL RA schools.
Out of about 335 registrars who returned my questionnaire, 18 (5.3%) checked the box that said they never accept regionally accredited 100% nonresident degrees. That's where the number came from.
Could you list the names of those schools, or was the questionnaire confidential and/or anonymous?
I'd additionally like to know whether this schools(that outright reject 100% DL degrees)belong mainly to the more prestigious one or whether they are rather average or both.
I would wager large amounts of cash (and I suspect Dr. Bear would not wish to bet against me) that almost all (if not actually all) of these 18 schools have enrolled graduate students with totally DL bachelor's degrees in the past. Furthermore, they will do it again. "Never" is a word which never (?) should be used regarding University admissions. There are just too many exceptions.
Separate names with a comma.
