    Hi friends,
    I am Romios from Greece and i have found this page on google search.
    i've learned a lot from you and i would love to read your recommendations on my following question.

    I have two associate degrees in Hotel management and almost 10 years of experience in the Hospitality field.
    I need a bachelors degree (any) untill December to be able to apply for my dream Job.

    Can you please recommend me a college or a university that has a very flexible policy of accepting transfer credits so i can get a bachelors in a very short time?

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Is your Associate degree from a regionally accredited US university? This will go a long way in helping us offer useful suggestions. If not, your first step may be to get the Associate degree evaluated from a NACES member organization such as before credits from such degree may be applied to your bachelors degree.

    That said, if a business degree sounds like something you'll like, I will recommend you look into taking business courses at Online College Courses That Fit Into Your Degree Program | StraighterLineand get everything transferred alongside your evaluated associate degrees to one of the BIG THREES Transfer Credit , Completing Your Degree - Charter Oak State College , or Excelsior College | Admissions at Excelsior College: International Students

    As an international student who lives in Slovakia, I evaluated my foreign credits, took online courses at Straighterline, Penn Foster College, Aleks, and TEEX before transferring all to Thomas Edison State College where I graduated in few months with a BSBA in General Management degree. There are experts on this forum who will soon chip in to offer you more useful information especially if any of mine is outdated. :) And I will suggest you follow a sister forum at CLEP Forum - CLEP Study - CLEP Testing - Study Guide and Strategies where you'll find so may useful information.

    If you have 2 associate's degrees, it's possible you already have all of the 100 and 200 level credit you need, so use caution completing Straighterline courses or CLEP exams. Excelsior College is very user-friendly and allows you to take online classes as well as testing out of classes. They have a bachelor's degree in hospitality but it appears their site is down right now, so I can't link you directly.

    Thomas Edison also has a very user-friendly degree in business that I *think* can be completed almost entirely via test out (read: very fast) BSBA in General Management Degree Program

    What is the university?

    When someone from outside the US says "US accredited university" here, it could mean a lot of things.

    Some colleges have limits on what professional courses (Hotel managent for example) that they accept.

    Excelsior's BS in Liberal Arts allows up to 59 semester units and I suspect that they will except hotel management credits. Personally I believe this degree is the easiest to meet in terms of meeting degree requirements.
    Thomas Edison State College: Online Bachelor of Science degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness

    TESC has a BS that includes a learner-designed area of study and 27 elective courses
    Thomas Edison State College: Online Bachelor of Science degree in Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness

    Using the portfolio method you should be able to obtain credits in Greek language, geography, history, and maybe more areas if you need additional credits.
