    Looking to take Saylor Business Ethics, Operations Management, Human Resources Management, and Conflict and Negotiation. These are upper division classes/exams, however they have only been rated so far by ACE as lower division.

    I received my Associate degree from Excelsior in 1992. I asked Excelsior if I took the Saylor Direct exam if they would transfer in as an upper division class, or if I had to take the corresponding UExcel or TEC exam to get upper division. They basically told me I would have to register, pay the fees and an advisor would help.

    That kind of sucks because I could end up paying $115+ per exam instead of the $25 for Saylor direct, and the exam probably doesn't perfectly align with the class on Saylor. Alternatively I could register at Excelsior and pay the fees.

    Anyone have experience with Excelsior accepting Saylor direct for upper division credits?

    I don't know the answer, but I agree it's a bit obnoxious they won't just tell you. It's not like they have to do new research to figure it out; this is something that they do all the time.

    I don't see any of those courses as bearing credit: https://www.saylor.org/credit/

    This is an interesting list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YdG-SXoHloExcF4EaQRnrD60zeqvt6AWf9alLJ3P4l8/pub?gid=0

    Interesting, decimon. It appears only BUS205: Business Law and Ethics, ACPE-0099 is the only direct. So, that is really the only one in question. Mind as well take the UExcel for it. Thanks.
