    I agree with this 100% No need for another Bachelors unless you have money just sitting around I guess. You could potentially apply the Grad Cert in Accounting to a Master of Accountancy if you had such a desire.

    Thank you very much for clarifying the "why". By the sounds of it I suspect you can get tuition assistance/reimbursement. If that is the case go for a Grad Cert and parlay it into a Master of Accountancy. Then you will be easily able to pursue a CPA and have an out of the petroleum industry if you so desired.

    Good luck.

    Sanantone: is CSU Global the only place that offers upper level accounting courses that TESC will accept, or can I test for upper level accounting exams elsewhere?

    As far as credit-by-exam goes, your only options for UL accounting credits are CSU Global and the Federal Income Taxation TECEP. TESC will accept any courses completed at a regionally accredited school.

    Check with the college catalogs but I believe most of the courses required for a second degree can be transferred in from other schools or from testing agencies such as CLEP and DSST.

    You will likely require some upper division biz courses. So check out DSST exams, some of which offer upper division credit.

    How about Strayer exams. Does Excelsior and TESC accept credits from strayer?

    TESC accepts Strayer exams; I don't know about the other two. The problem with the Strayer exams is that they want you to be an enrolled student in order to have the credits transcribed. I know of one person who was able to get around this because this is the first time the issue had come up, but I'm sure they are going to be more diligent now by not letting non-matriculated students get credits from their exams without taking any of their classes.
